Sheryl Lee Ralph Makes Rainbow Platform Crocs Look – Dare We Say It – Chic
Leave it to Sheryl Lee Ralph to make a divisive footwear trend look surprisingly fashionable. On Aug. 22, the “Abbott Elementary” star stepped out in rainbow tie-dye platform Crocs for a talk show appearance in Philadelphia, and her outfit was like a master class for styling the quirky shoes. Ralph paired a bright green v-neck blouse with matching flowy pants that allowed the thick soles of her colorful Crocs to peek out from underneath. She finished the look with a blue beaded statement necklace, simple diamond earrings, and glittery eye shadow. The Emmy winner proudly modeled her Crocs while heading into the Fox 29 studio, where she discussed her memoir, “Diva 2.0 12 Life Lesson From Me For You!”
Ralph is never one to shy away from bold colors, whether she’s sitting down for an interview or walking the red carpet. Just a few weeks after wearing a fiery red puff-sleeve jumpsuit to perform at the Super Bowl in February, the actor exuded African glamour in an orange beaded kente gown at the NAACP Image Awards, where the “Abbott Elementary” cast scooped up several accolades. She’s also quite fond of sparkle, wearing a gold off-the-shoulder Jovana Louis gown to the Critics’ Choice Awards and purple sequin Aliétte dress to the Golden Globes. Ralph’s daughter, Ivy-Victoria Maurice, doubles as her stylist, and she definitely knows how to make her mom look chic, no matter the occasion.
Ralph isn’t the first celebrity to dabble with Crocs despite their controversial nature. Everyone from Ariana Grande and Kendall Jenner to Priyanka Chopra and Nicki Minaj have been spotted in the rubbery sling-back shoes in recent years. A growing number of stars have also collaborated with the footwear brand on wild collections, including Post Malone, SZA, Justin Bieber, and Bad Bunny. It’s clear Crocs still have the fashion world in a chokehold, for better or worse. Read ahead to see Ralph’s stylish take on the holey clogs that just won’t quit.
