Fans praise Austin Butler’s heels at the Oscars
Austin Butler stunned at the 2023 Oscars on Sunday as he walked the red carpet in a pair of sleek heeled shoes.
The elvis Star, who is nominated for Best Actor for his portrayal of the King of Rock and Roll, arrived in front of the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on March 12 in a black velvet tuxedo by Saint Laurent. He paired the double-breasted suit with a white button-down shirt and black bow tie.
However, it was perhaps Butler’s patent leather platforms that stole the show. The shiny black heeled shoes caught the attention of fans as they took to Twitter to praise the actor for his foul look.
“Austin Butler gives rockabilly early Elvis y’all see that cha-cha heel he’s wearing YSL is always sexy,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
“Those heels Austin Butler is wearing are hiiiiiiig,” noted another Twitter user.
A third person wrote: “Woo baby those heels baby!”
Instead of walking the red — or champagne-colored, in this case — carpet with his girlfriend Kaia Gerber, Butler allegedly brought along his longtime agent, James Farrell.
The 31-year-old Oscar nominee and the 21-year-old model began dating in 2021 but made their debut as a couple almost a year ago at the Met Gala. Gerber – the daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford and businessman Rande Gerber – accompanied Butler to the Cannes Film Festival premiere of elvis.
Butler isn’t the only star known for his portrayal of Elvis Presley. Kaia Gerber’s ex-boyfriend, euphoria Actor Jacob Elordi will also play Elvis in Sofia Coppola’s upcoming film Priscillawhich will focus on the musician’s wife, Priscilla Presley.
At the request of diversity If he has “advice” for Elordi, who Gerber previously dated from September 2020 to February 2021, Butler said he wished Elordi “all the best,” before noting that the pair “didn’t speak.”
“We haven’t spoken, but I hope he’s having a great time,” Butler continued.
However, some fans on social media called the exchange “awkward” due to the romantic history between Elordi and Gerber. Meanwhile the Carrie diaries star previously dated high school musical alum Vanessa Hudgens for nearly a decade.
Earlier this year, Butler received backlash when he claimed in an interview that a “friend” made him play Elvis Presley after they heard him sing. However, internet sleuths discovered that Butler’s former partner, Hudgens, had discussed in a previous interview that she was the one who told Butler about his resemblance to Presley.
Speaking of Los Angeles Times, Butler set the record straight and clarified that his ex-girlfriend was the one who told him to play Elvis Presley. “I was dating my partner at the time,” he said.
When asked if it was Hudgens, he confirmed, “That’s right. We were together for so long and she had that kind of psychic moment and I really owe her a lot for believing in me.”
Austin Butler is nominated alongside fellow actors Brendan Fraser, Colin Farrell, Bill Nighy and Paul Mescal. Here is the full list of 2023 Oscar winners.
