It’s not often that we get to see a celebrity’s face and feet together, but we get to enjoy a rare glimpse of Hollywood actor Robert Pattinson’s face and feet in the new limited-edition Woody Pinter shoes, which are designed in the shape of a tiger’s head and feet.
The shoes feature a black leather upper with a bold tiger print on both the shoes and the insole. Additionally, the shoes have a metal shank connected to the heel for added stability. The shoes are a collaboration between Woody Pinter and luxury goods brand Ettinger, and the price tag is quite high at $495 a pair.
The Rise In Popularity
In case you haven’t heard of Woody Pinter, we’ll give you a brief history lesson. He began his design career in 1973, when he was only 15 years old. In 1975, he established his own company and designed his first pair of shoes, which were a hit, especially with rappers. In 2017, Uma Thurmainger became the face of a Woody Pinter shoe collection after she wore a pair of the shoes and went viral. Since then, the designer has been busy working on new interpretations of the Tiger icon, and we’d love to see more celebrity faces in future pairs of Woody Pinter shoes. If you thought the Uma Thurman x Woody Pinter shoes were hot, then you’ll probably want to get your hands on a pair of the star’s new Robert Pattinson x Woody Pinter shoes. They are an interpretation of the Hollywood star’s face and feet as a tiger’s, and it’s a striking resemblance.
A Bold Take On The Tiger
The popularity of the Robert Pattinson x Woody Pinter shoes is a reflection of the current trend of Hollywood stars donning the iconic symbol of the animal world. Take a look at some of our other favorite celebrity-inspired fashion designs from Woody Pinter that you may want to check out.
In 2018, Elle MacLeman wore a pair of tiger-print heels and got a lot of flack for it. She later tweeted that she was indeed wearing ‘tigers’, but were just ‘tiger heels’. This brought about the viral ‘Tiger McQueen’ trend, as people began copying MacLeman’s outfit and wearing heels to emulate the ‘70s film icon. Since then, the tiger print has mostly been seen on celebrities’ Instagram accounts.
In 2020, Gigi Hadid wore a striking yellow dress and matching yellow heels at the Golden Globes, further igniting the ‘Tiger McQueen’ trend. The dress wasn’t exactly runway-ready and had to be altered several times before the event. However, what started as a humorous homage to the film icon soon turned into a fashion trend. We even began seeing yellow heels, leopard print heels, and other animals printed on shoes and handbags as a reflection of the moment.
A Beautiful Match For The Beach
We’re seeing a lot of celebrities walking the red carpet in white outfits these days. It seems that many designers were inspired by the ‘beach wedding’ trend and have taken the opportunity to offer up some gorgeous beach-themed designs. We especially love these two pairs of slip-on sandals by JOVANI that have been designed in the shape of a sandcastle and waves, evoking the beauty and solitude of a summer’s day spent on a sandy beach.
In 2021, Alexa Chung wore a beautiful gold and white floral print dress at the BET Awards, completely covering up against the sun in glorious fashion (shown above). We especially love JOVANI’s take on the floral print with pale blue, red, and yellow flowers against a delicate gold background. It’s truly a breath of fresh air, and we can’t get enough of this floral print!
In 2022, Rita Ora wore a completely white dress and matching white heels to the Grammys. Ora’s dress was designed by MARNI CHAO and evoked a luminous beauty ideal, making it an ode to the simplicity of a white wedding day. Ora’s dress is also embroidered with silver thread, which gives it a fancy appearance that we can’t help but admire.
What Will The Future Of The Tiger Print Be?
One thing is for sure: the tiger print will never go out of style. It’s a striking resemblance to animal skin, fits seamlessly with most wardrobes, and can be altered to fit most body types. Plus, it’s always a great look when worn by a celebrity.
With the popularity of the Tiger McQueen trend, people are paying more attention to the animal world than ever before. More and more designers are getting inspired by the animal world and creating beautiful pieces of clothing and accessories that will undoubtedly make you put down your phone long enough to pay attention to the real world around you. So, next time you’re scrolling through social media, be sure to spare a thought for the animals that share our beautiful planet with us.
