Lea Michele Goes Ethereal in White Lace Dress by Shushu/Tong at FN Achievement Awards 2023

Lea Michele arrived on the red carpet for the 2023 Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York City on Wednesday looking ethereal in a white long-sleeve lace dress with a button-up bodice and a small black ribbon at the waist from Shushu/Tong.

She accessorized her ensemble with a diamond ring and white and black diamond stud earrings from Effy, sheer black tights, and completed her ensemble with black satin pumps with a pointed-toe, sleek arch and an almost three-inch stiletto from Roger Vivier.

Michele’s choice to wear Roger Vivier shoes coincided with her presenting the brand’s creative director Gherardo Felloni with the 2023 FNAA for Designer of the Year. Michele has a longstanding relationship with the brand and its creative director, as she wore a pair of silver platform heels to this year’s Met Gala.

The 2023 event is supported by sponsors Authentic Brands Group, Birdies, Caleres, Crocs, FDRA, Nordstrom, Saucony and Vibram.
