Halle Bailey nods to the Little Mermaid in swirling 7-inch heels for variety – Footwear News
Halle Bailey dominated several pairs of towering platform silhouettes for her Variety magazine photoshoot.
The actress sat down for an interview with Variety to discuss her role as Ariel in the upcoming action flick “Little Mermaid.” For the shoot, Bailey wore an elegant sea-green ensemble. The 22-year-old was dressed in a geometric dress with a structured silhouette.
The top featured a bow shape and was reminiscent of Ariel’s seashell top. At the bottom, she wore a matching green high-waisted skirt with a curved shape at the hips. The bottom cut just above her ankles, leaving room to show off her towering shoes.
The shoes featured a very high platform and a triangular shaped heel; it incorporated a transparent base and was covered in orange and blue swirls on the sole, heel and toe shaft. The suspenders closed around her ankles and were printed with yellow polka dots.
For her second look, the star looked angelic in all white. The set featured a high-necked white crop top with ruffle detailing, which was paired with a lightweight white skirt that tied at her side. For shoes, she slipped into a pair of sleek glass slippers with a modern, on-trend twist. Much like her first pair, the see-through shoes featured a chunky sole that gave her height and elevated the look. The Barely There Sandals also featured a thick strap around her ankles with a silver clasp.
During the interview, Bailey spoke about the significance of her position as the second black actress to be crowned Disney Princess. She noted, “I want the little girl in me and the little girls like me watching to know that they are special and should be a princess in every way,” Bailey said. “There’s no reason they shouldn’t be. This reassurance was something I needed.
