Pharrell Williams, who was named creative director of Louis Vuitton menswear in February 2023, unveiled his Spring/Summer 2025 Men’s Collection for the brand at Paris Fashion Week on June 18, 2024.

The outdoor, turf-lined runway event held at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris saw the stars and their stylists, fashion influencers, fashion editors and fashion insiders in attendance. At the event, there was no shortage of Nigerian celebrities in the front seats.

For them, the category quickly became a master class in layering as taught by Rema, Wizkid and Adekunle Gold. Afrobeats star Rema, who opted for a denim-on-denim look, complimented his outfit with a brown veracity jacket.

Adekunle Gold went for a bomber jacket with colourful neon graffiti designs. Wizkid did not deviate too far from his usual style, sporting a Fair Isle V-neck sweater over a pair of his usual shorts and iced-out wrists.

For Burna Boy, his statement was anything but layering. He opted for a two-piece carton brown look leaving all the buttons of his top undone. He accentuated the look with a massive diamond necklace.

Tems attended the event in an off-white ensemble, serving a major rich aunty look in a coat and black pumps. Nigerian American rapper Tobe Nwigwe sealed the deal in a leather jacket. His brown extra-wide-leg trousers did most of the talking.

4 types of heels chubby girls can rock effortlessly

Published

on

By

If you’re a curvy queen looking to elevate your style with high heels, you’re in luck! With the right pair of heels, you can rock any look effortlessly while embracing your curves.

Here are four types of high heels that are perfect for heavy girls:

1. Platform heels

Platform heels are a curvy girl’s best friend. These heels feature a thick sole that provides extra support and stability, making them comfortable to wear for extended periods.

Platform heels also help distribute your weight more evenly, reducing strain on your feet and ankles. Whether you opt for sky-high stilettos or chunky platforms, these heels add height and glamour to any outfit without sacrificing comfort.

2. Block heels

Block heels are both stylish and practical, making them a versatile choice for heavy girls. With a sturdy, block-shaped heel, these shoes offer excellent support and balance, making them easier to walk in than traditional stilettos.

Block heels come in various heights and styles, from ankle straps to peep toes, allowing you to find the perfect pair that suits your personal style.

Plus, they provide added stability, making them ideal for curvy queens who want to strut their stuff with confidence.

3. Wedge heels

Wedge heels are a curvy girl’s secret weapon for adding height and lengthening the legs without sacrificing comfort.

Unlike traditional heels, which concentrate pressure on the balls of the feet, wedge heels provide more surface area for support, making them easier to walk in for extended periods.

Whether you opt for espadrille wedges for a casual daytime look or sleek, patent leather wedges for a night out, these heels are a must-have staple for any curvy fashionista.

4. Low heel sandals

Who says you need sky-high heels to make a statement? Low heel sandals offer a chic and comfortable alternative for heavy girls who want to strut their stuff without sacrificing comfort.

With a modest heel height, these sandals provide just the right amount of elevation while keeping your feet happy all day long.

Whether you prefer strappy sandals for a boho-inspired look or slide sandals for effortless summer style, low heel sandals are a wardrobe essential for curvy queens everywhere.

In conclusion, high heels are not just reserved for one body type. With the right pair of heels, heavy girls can rock any look effortlessly while embracing their curves.

Whether you prefer platform heels, block heels, wedge heels, or low heel sandals, there’s a style out there to suit every taste and occasion. So go ahead, strut your stuff with confidence, and show the world that curvy queens can slay in heels too!
