Regina King Praises This Shoe Designer For Having The Most Comfortable Shoes Ever

Regina King looks so stunning in a black and white Schiaparelli gown for the 2021 amfAR Cannes Gala held at Villa Eilenroc on Friday (July 16) in Cap d’Antibes, France.

The 50-year-old actress and director completed her look with Boucheron jewelry for the charitable night.

Earlier in the day, Regina stopped by the Kering Women In Motion Talk.

While there, she opened up about how she was approached to open the 2021 Oscars show the night before the event.

“I knew I was presenting and the category, and then they said the category would be up first. And then I thought, ‘Oh, they’re really changing things!’” she shared. “Then I got another call saying, ‘Well, it’s going to be a little more than your category starting first; we would like you to open the show.’ And I was like, ‘Open the show? I’m sorry. Open. The show?’”

Regina added, “That’s a lot of pressure. I talked to [ceremony producer Steven Soderbergh], we Zoomed, he laid it down, they sent a script, we worked on it. I was like, ‘Wow this is a lot to take in 24 hours before, but you can do it!’”

She was advised to wear comfortable shoes for the event, as it was quite a walk from the carpet to the podium at Union Station.

“I said, ‘It’s the Oscars! Of course I don’t have good shoes.’ But I brought the shoes to rehearsal and when I saw the distance — we call it a country mile — I was happy I had on the most comfortable shoes possible for the moment,” Regina shared about wearing a pair of six-inch Stuart Weitzman heels.

“[Stuart Weitzman] makes the best shoes if you have to walk a country mile in six-inch heels. I gave it to God and said, ‘Let’s go.’ I walked it once for the rehearsal and once for the show.”

FYI: Regina wore a Gucci look for the Kering event.
