Last night's Stuart Weitzman dinner involved two Hadids, one Knowles, two Olivias whose last names both end in -o, and about a thousand yellow strappy sandals. Turns out, however, that this was no sheer coincidence (or more likely, embarrassing inter-stylist miscommunication).
Held at New York City restaurant Sadelle's, the private event celebrated the shoe brand's partnership with Pencils of Promise, which builds schools around the world. Weitzman created the limited-edition dandelion suede version of its popular 'Nearlynude' block heel sandal to benefit the cause, with proceeds going to create schools in Ghana, Guatemala, and Laos.
Celebrity turnout for the event was big, with both Gigi and Bella Hadid, Solange Knowles (in a very green ensemble), Joan Smalls, Olivia Palermo, and Olivia Culpo in attendance, most of whom modeled the new style.
If seeing a bunch of the same sandals on celebrity feet over and over and over again has made you want to wear them on your non-celebrity feet, great news: They're currently available online for $398. Scroll through the gallery above for tips on how to style them.
