The rise of the nineties throwback mule has been percolating since last summer. First sported by the likes of Carolyn Bessette- Kennedy and Sarah Jessica Parkerin the early Sex and the City days, the shoe has been reappropriated by everyone from Kate Moss to Emma Stone; in fact, the slip-on style even stole the show on the runway of Proenza Schouler’s fall 2015 show. The latest style star to step up the look? Jennifer Lawrence, who arrived in Montreal yesterday to film X-Men: Apocalypse.
The actress kept her airport ensemble simple in a black biker jacket and white tee, and the combination of AG Jeans faded blues (slightly slouchy and distressed) andnavy leather mules by Balenciaga makes for a leg-lengthening effect. Plus, the shoe is a pretty versatile travel companion, one that will pair just as well with denim as it will with the slinky red-carpet number she likely stashed in her carry-on.
