Celeb Style: Alice Braga’s Open-Toe Slingbacks

Alice Braga, the lovely star of City of God, is often spotted in solid black evening gowns to her public events, but for the screening of Redbelt at the Tribeca Film Festival, she surprised everyone by showing up in a pinstriped dress that hugged all her womanly curves.

Though the frock had feminine details like puffed cap sleeves and a sweetheart neckline, she kept the look from slipping into girlishness with an impeccable hairstyle, subdued makeup, a sophisticated clutch and most importantly, a pair of open-toed pumps.

Prada makes a similar pair for $470 at bergdorfgoodman.com. These slingbacks are a refreshing break from the usual strappy sandals you see with dresses. These open-toe pumps can even take you from the office to an evening event. And the best news of all? They're only 2 1/2 inches high!
