“And that’s on Keke in Cannes,” she wrote under the new post.

The vibrant gown featured spaghetti straps, risky cutouts along the back, extreme thigh-high slit and a delicate sweeping hemline. To keep cool under the warm France skies, the “True Jackson, VP” alum slicked her dark tresses back into a low, voluminous ponytail. Palmer added a sleek pair of gold mirror shades, which put a chef’s kiss on the standout style moment.

The Emmy Award-winning actress boosted her height with a platform heels. The metallic silhouette had a knotted strap on the toe, chunky outsole and sat atop a thin 6-inch stiletto heel. The platform shoe trend is one of the easiest styles to incorporate into any wardrobe. Platform sandals feature an elevated sole and typically have a heel high of 4 inches or higher. The platformed construction helps compensate for the height of the heel, allowing for more height than a traditional pump without any added discomfort.

Palmer is never afraid to take risks when it comes to fashion. She is known for having a trendy, yet daring fashion aesthetic. She has a shoe wardrobe that includes bold pumps and sandals from Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, Dior and Giuseppe Zanotti, among numerous top brands. When off-duty, the singer chooses more casual styles, regularly wearing sneakers by Vans and Nike. However, she’s also a supporter of independent designers like Isa Tapia and Jerome C. Rousseau, and can even be seen in affordable brands like Chiara Ferragni and ShoeDazzle.
