Emma Thompson Wore Sneakers to Her Damehood Ceremony

The actress and writer received the honor from Prince William and was joined by her husband, their daughter, and their son.

It’s an honor the Brits don’t take lightly, but Thompson made it fun. At the 2014 Golden Globes she walked onstage barefoot and threw her shoes behind her “I just want you to know, this red? It’s my blood,” she said of her red-bottom Louboutins before chucking them.

In her apparent continued quest to never have to wear heels again, she chose a pair of bright white sneakers for her ceremony on Wednesday.
