Bailee Madison kicked up the red carpet glamor at a screening of “Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin,” ahead of the series premiere on July 28.
The HBO Max thriller — in which Madison stars alongside Chandler Kinney, Maia Reficco, Zaria Simone and Malia Pyles — finds a group of teenagers targeted by an unnamed murderer with ties to their town’s past.
Madison arrived on the red carpet at the SJR Theater in Los Angeles wearing a vibrant Maticevski gown. The 22-year-old actress’ Enamored style featured a strapless bodice with asymmetrical layered panels, which curved to mimic rose petal silhouettes. The daring piece was completed with a flowing skirt with a gathered hem. Madison’s accessories were minimal, featuring nothing but diamond earrings and an elegant white gold ear brooch by Katkim.
As for footwear, the “A Week Away” star opted for a set of Dolce & Gabbana platform sandals. Madison’s pair featured black leather uppers with toe and ankle straps, and chunky soles. The ensemble was completed with tall block heels that seemed to total at least 5 inches in height. Her style provided a neutral base for the dress allowing her to take center stage while providing an instant boost in height.
Platform sandals like Madison’s are on the rise this season, thanks to their height-enhancing nature and secure straps. Pairs with chunky soles and stiletto or platform heels have proven to be the most popular, with new styles released by brands such as Schutz, Aquazzura and Jeffrey Campbell. Besides Madison, stars Selena Gomez, Ciara and Chrissy Teigen have also donned height-increasing Larroudé, Jimmy Choo and Saint Laurent sandals in recent weeks.
Madison’s style often ranges from elegant to whimsical. The “Parental Guidance” actress regularly walks the red carpet in pointed pumps, sandals and mules in neutral and jewel tones, from top brands Stuart Weitzman, Versace, Jimmy Choo and Stella Luna. She has also been seen in affordable styles from Dolce Vita and Steve Madden. Madison’s off-duty pairs are decidedly more casual, often encompassing sneakers from Keds and Converse, as well as comfy Ugg boots. Madison has also become a regular at New York Fashion Week, attending shows for Longchamp, Brock Collection, Veronica Beard and BCBGMAXAZRIA over the years.
