Sky-high stilettos may make a woman feel like a million dollars, but true confidence comes from being comfortable with every step. And if proof was ever needed that flats can look every inch as stylish and sophisticated as their stiletto counterparts, just look at Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio in a striking red evening gown and matching ballet pumps in the new season campaign from Pretty Ballerinas.
The family-owned shoewear label, which was founded in Menorca in 1918, is famous for its elegant, ballerina-inspired footwear. Over the past century, the styles have evolved to include loafers, sandals, slingbacks, pointed flats and even trainers. Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra has big shoes to fill following Olivia Palermo as the new face – and feet – of the brand. In her debut campaign, she sports the spring-summer range of new Pretty Ballerina accessories and shoes, including the zesty zebra-print Ella slingbacks and the bestselling Rosario ballet pumps in red patent leather.
‘Alessandra Ambrosio shows that the flat designs of Pretty Ballerinas can be as sexy and sophisticated as any high heel when posing for a photocall or walking the red carpet,’ commented Ursula Mascaró, creative director of Pretty Ballerinas.
