It’s that time of year again: New York Fashion Week officially kicks off on Thursday, September 6. In honor of the event, we decided to take a walk down memory lane and revisit what the queen of the NYC shows wore 15 years ago. To no one’s surprise, Wintour’s style was very similar back then—think pencil skirts, matching sets, and plenty of prints and color.
When looking through old images, we noticed one common theme: the same Manolo Blahnik mule sandals she wore to tons of shows back in 2003. The nude shoes are perfectly in keeping with 2018’s “naked” trend, so we wouldn’t blame her if she busted them out for the shows tomorrow. Scroll down to see how she wore the shoes over a decade ago, and shop similar styles.
