Brooke Shields Rocks Some Truly Surprising Footwear To Tonys, And We're Here For It

Brooke Shields was walking on sunshine at Sunday night’s Tony Awards.

While the “Suddenly Susan” star glowed in her yellow Monique Lhuillier gown, it was her very practical footwear that stole the show during the event at New York’s Lincoln Center.

Underneath her chic daffodil-hued dress, Shields sported a pair of matching Crocs.

Proud to show off her casual kicks, the veteran actor pulled up her dress to reveal the Swiss cheese-inspired clogs.

Adding some extra oomph, she styled the look with a boxy gold clutch, matching bangles and a pair of pearl earrings.

Shields, who just a day earlier revealed she had undergone surgery on both feet, told People magazine that opting for comfy shoes was a must for the event.

“I got my Crocs!” she said. “I couldn’t do this in heels!”

During her red carpet moment, Shields took time to celebrate the theater world and everything it has done for her.

“Broadway welcomed me when nobody else was welcoming me,” she told People. “I started going to Broadway when I was a little, little girl, so to me it’s a part of my life.”

Over the years, the talent has appeared in Broadway productions of “Wonderful Town,” “Chicago,” “Cabaret” and “Grease.”

Shields has also branched out from the bright lights of Broadway’s biggest theaters.

Last year, she produced the one-woman cabaret “Previously Owned by Brooke Shields” during a limited engagement at Manhattan’s Café Carlyle.
