Amy Poehler is totally awesome in Isabel Marant sneakers
I have never been a fan of the Isabel Marant Bekket Sneaker Wedges that everyone in fashion seems to love. I’ve seen them styled well, but for the life of me, I can’t figure out why someone would pay $700 for them when there’s a whole host of awesome real sneakers out there, most of which look much cooler. Spend a hundred bucks on a good pair of Nike Dunks and save the rest for something else! Anyway, rant over, you get the point – they’re not my favorite and I’m fairly sick of seeing them.
And then I saw these photos of Parks & Recreation star and all-around hilarious lady Amy Poehler wearing the Marants, and my opinion of the Bekkets was immediately lifted. Not in a huge way, but definitely a little bit; it’s funny what seeing an item you don’t love on a celebrity that you do does to your perception of both. In this case, I think Poehler is so totally awesome, so completely unimpeachable, that I have no choice but to reflect more positively on her shoes. After all, if she sees something in them, perhaps there’s something there. (Unrelated: Anyone recognize that bag?)
