In April 2012, Helen Hunt’s lookalike Leelee Sobieski made a comeback to the red carpet and we were glad to see her return.
The Glass House actress looked incredibly chic yet casual at the Tribeca Film Festival in a pair of slim jeans, a crew neck sweater, and bright Tabitha Simmons heels.

11 years earlier, she starred with Diane Lane, Stellan Skarsgård, Bruce Dern, Kathy Baker, Trevor Morgan, and Chris Noth in the 2001 American psychological mystery thriller film The Glass House.

They were 18 and 14 years old respectively when the film was released on September 14, 2001, just three days after the September 11 attacks.
While she was reportedly paid $1 million for appearing in the film, it was a box office bomb and panned by critics.
The house appearing in the movie is situated on the top of a mountain overlooking Leo Carrillo State Park. Located on 12815 Yellow Hill Road in Malibu, California, it was listed for $14,900,000 in 2014 and has parking for up to 20 cars!

At the Tribeca Film Festival, she spiced up her basics beautifully here by adding fun and summery heels to the ensemble.
Her tan satchel finished off the look and didn’t overpower her shoes or the rest of the look in any way.

Well, what do you think of Leelee’s look here? Do you adore her casual-chic ensemble as much as we do? More importantly, how do you feel about her heels?

While the price tag will keep them out of my closet for some time, they’re still pretty enough to take the time to admire.

What do you think of Leelee’s shoe choice? Would you use it to amp up staple pieces, or add them to an already vivid printed dress or pants?
