Gabrielle Union Just Wore the Coolest Optical Illusion Heels

Gabrielle Union is a style icon. So while we're never surprised when she wears a show-stopping look, we do take the time to appreciate/swoon over/envy it. Such was the case when she stepped on the red carpet ahead of a live taping of America's Got Talent yesterday in Hollywood, California.

Her sparkly green minidress by The Blonds featured a strapless bodice and asymmetrical hemline—ideal for showing off her enviously toned legs.  

But perhaps the coolest part of her look—with her coordinating eye makeup (!) coming in a close second—were her shoes. Let's take a closer peek.

How?! Made by Lebanese designer Andrea Wazen, the optical illusion PVC pumps, called the Dassy, came complete with a 4.1-inch stiletto heel, a buckle at the ankle strap and a very pointed toe.

The $420 shoe is currently sold out, but we're also swooning over Wazen's other designs, including more neon and more PVC.  

Thanks, Gab, for making the case that the coolest pieces are ones that make you do a double-take.
