The internet went crazy over Emma's footwear choice as she accepted damehood from Prince Harry at Buckingham Palace. She donned a teal pantsuit by Stella McCartney. Emma did things her way by wearing casual trainers, mixing a casual sporty look with her smart outfit. The debateable trainers are Stella McCartney Stan Smiths and retail at $325. They were launched last month, so these were right on trend when she attended the occasion in November.

Why she chose a comfy look

Dame Emma Thompson had no idea she stirred such controversy over her cool careless ensemble. She was chatting away during the famous podcast, My Dad Wrote a Porno, when asked why she leaned towards such a casual style.

Emma seemed surprised why anyone would even bother. Then she revealed that they are no ordinary shoes, but a very luxurious pair. In her version of events, there was no way she would have gone for them if they weren't up to royal standards. As she revealed to Hello!:

But they were posh trainers. Was there a lot of controversies? About whether it was appropriate? Oh that's so interesting… They were Vegan trainers. Stella McCartney, Stan Smith trainers.

To her defense, the Duchess of Sussex wore the same kind of shoes during her and Prince Harry's recent New Zealand tour. So, apparently, her decision was totally reaching royal grade to meet her cozy foot needs. Turn up the PJs!
