The 19-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson received the emerging talent award, and when she arrived at the podium she had kicked her Sophia Webster heels aside.
Jackson got the crowd going with her speech, telling the audience that included Kim Kardashian West and Hailey Baldwin that, “As I accept this award I have to make a promise to everybody in this room, that from this day forward, every step that I take and every decision that I make is with love in my heart and with hope to get one more step ahead in fighting the good fight.”
The young star paired the shoes with a Naeem Khan minidress.
Today is Jackson’s 19th birthday, and in a message posted on Instagram by her stylist Sonia Young, she wrote, “I love you even though you dislike the shoes I choose for you,” accompanied by a photo of Jackson sans-shoes at the awards.
Just a day earlier, Jackson attended the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles, where she opted for a bright peacock-inspired Yanina Couture gown that hid her Stuart Weitzman sandals.
