Here’s Why Millie Bobby Brown Wore Sneakers to the 2018 SAG Awards

By  | 

Millie Bobby Brown is one of the most talented, respected and stylish actresses in Hollywood at the moment, but it’s important to remember she’s also only 13 years old. So while she attends some of the hottest parties, awards shows, etc., on the regular, she tries to stay a “normal” kid as much as possible. Annnnd that’s why we LOVE the fact that she rocked a pair of white Converse sneakers on the red carpet of the 2018 Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.

The Stranger Things star, who’s nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series, stunned in a light pink, sequined Calvin Klein gown that was paired with crisp white kicks.

If you’re wondering why MBB decided to go with sneakers over heels for the formal event, the answer lies in what’s going to happen after the ceremony ends.

She told People magazine before the show, “You got to go for Converse. You gotta dance the night away, win or lose!”

“You know you gotta keep it stylish,” she later revealed on E!’s Live from the Red Carpet. “It’s fun to go to the parties. I love to dance that’s why I brought these.”

If you’ve ever worn a pair of sky-high heels, you KNOW how painful your feet become after just a short period of time. And having sore tootsies does not equal a good night of dancing. It’s allllllll about the after-parties, people!

Millie hit the SAG Awards red carpet with her Stranger Things co-stars, but didn’t bring rumored new boyfriend Jacob Sartorius along for the ride. The young celebrities haven’t officially confirmed their relationship yet (well, besides an adorable Instagram picture adorned with heart Emojis), so maybe a red-carpet appearance will be in their near future.
