Emma Thompson wears trainers and a tuxedo to Buckingham Palace
Only earlier this week I was eulogising over the multitalented tuxedo and trainers combo; a confidence-boosting outfit that can take the wearer anywhere. And then, HELLO Emma Thompson. Dressed to feel her best, the Academy Award and Emmy-winning actor accepted a damehood at Buckingham Palace in a Stella McCartney tuxedo and Adidas Stan Smith sneakers (a Stella McCartney collaboration, 100% vegetarian). I am not one for outdated patronage but I would excuse Thompson almost anything – and she gave the following explanation:
“They send you a letter saying, ‘Will you accept it?’ You can choose not to. You can choose to say, ‘Well, of course we don’t have an empire anymore, thank God, because it was ghastly, colonial, racist, dreadful undertaking on every level,’ and actually have some moral principle about it. Or you can be like me and think, ‘Hmm, it’s gonna be a really nice badge.’”
(To go with the Fawcett Society button on her lapel).
The versatile combination of trainers and a tuxedo creates a winning outfit that’s good enough for the Palace…
