The actress looked elegant in the open-toe, patent leather shoes. The classic low-cut pump is perched on an architectural stiletto heel and sets off feminine curves to give an alluring effect. The Italian made shoe has a small platform in the front.

Rodriguez is known for mostly being a trendsetting sneakerhead, so the elevated look was a notable one.

Last May, the “Dungeons & Dragons” star attended ​​the 2023 Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project’s (CTAOP) annual Block Party event in a pair of white leather high-top sneakers that featured flat rubber soles for a monochrome finish. The shoes had a lace-up design and an upper with metallic silver paneling for a boldly retro edge. Those sneakers were similar to a pair of white high-tops the actress wore while attending Comic-Con in July 2023. The shoes were designed with a clunky construction, and were equipped with a large tongue and all-white laces to go along with their tan rubber soles.
