Holmes wore a red blazer over a red and black printed midi dress.
For footwear, the “Batman Begins” star selected bow-adorned slingback sandals in a blush colorway. With Milano weather hitting fall temperatures, Holmes layered her sandals over a pair of sheer, nude Fendi socks.
The shoes and hosiery were perfectly coordinated, both boasting a pattern made out of calligraphy from the label’s former creative director, Karl Lagerfeld. Holmes’ dress was also printed with Lagerfeld’s lettering.
The “Dawson’s Creek” alum pulled together her look with a navy Fendi bag.
As Holmes sat front row, famous faces hit the runway, among them Kaia Gerber, Gigi and Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner.
While Jenner wore block-heeled brown pumps at today’s Fendi show, she’s herself no stranger to making socks and sandals high-fashion.
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star paired strappy Jimmy Choo sandals with $17 Wolford socks at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017.
KiKi Layne, Kanye West and Rihanna have all given the socks-and-sandals trend a try as well.
