The sheer shoe trend, which gained momentum last year, continues to make waves in the fashion world. Recently, country music sensation Alana Springsteen turned heads at the 59th Academy of Country Music Awards in Texas, sporting clear and gold pointed pumps that added a touch of glamour to her ensemble.

Last week, Kate Upton opted for a pair of sheer mesh shoes similar to Saldana’s while attending the launch party for the 60th anniversary of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue in Miami.

This trend was also highlighted earlier this year when Kylie Jenner showcased PVC heels from Courreges at the launch events for her beverage brand Sprinter in Los Angeles.

Saldana’s choice of footwear not only aligned perfectly with current fashion trends but also underscored her impeccable sense of style. The transparent material of the pumps added a modern twist to her classic red carpet look, emphasizing both elegance and sophistication.
