Austin Butler wore Elvis Presley-inspired heeled boots to this year's Oscars
If this year's Academy Awards are anything to go by, Austin Butler is not just a method actor, but a method dresser, too. The Elvis star – who famously maintained his accent for the Baz Luhrmann biopic both on- and off-screen for three years – wore some Nashville-appropriate Saint Laurent boots to the Oscars ceremony that wouldn't have looked out of place on a young Elvis Presley.
Butler took a leaf out of the style playbooks of Lil Nas X and Timothée Chalamet by choosing the Cuban-heeled style, which offers added height as well as a striking silhouette.
He paired his patent boots with a clean-cut suit, also by Saint Laurent – which featured another subtle nod to Elvis with its padded shoulders – and a bow-tie.
Butler was nominated for Best Actor for Elvis (for which he has already won a Golden Globe and a BAFTA) but he lost out to Brendan Fraser for The Whale. He still went to the famous Oscars after-party however, where he was joined by model girlfriend Kaia Gerber. The pair have been dating since late 2021 and made their official debut as a couple at the Met Gala in 2022.
Butler wore another Saint Laurent look – this time, a silky, midnight-blue shirt – while Gerber chose a glittering, halterneck Celine gown. The couple were just two of the well-dressed guests to attend; others included Naomi Campbell in Schiaparelli couture and Daisy Edgar Jones in a daring, sheer Gucci gown.
