Olivia Rodrigo attended the 2023 Z100 Jingle Ball Friday at Madison Square Garden in New York. Beyond Rodrigo, other attendees included Sabrina Carpenter, Cher, Jared Leto, (G)I-DLE, Martha Stewart and Andy Cohen. During the event, Rodrigo took the stage to perform her hit song “Vampire.”

Going full grunge, Rodrigo sported black knee-high Dr. Martens leather boots. The 1B60 Bex Pisa booties featured rounded toes accompanied by sleek black leather uppers that gave the shoes a slightly shiny finish. The knee-high pair acted to streamline the “Vampire” songstress’ silhouette, while thick rubber soles offered Rodrigo a small and walkable boost in height. The pair also featured Dr. Martens’ instantly recognizable bright yellow welt stitching.

No matter the size, Dr. Marten’s boots are rugged and sturdy, giving the wearer forgiveness when it comes to wear and tear. In fact, many Dr. Marten styles look best when distressed, offering the silhouette a sort of worn-in charm.

Accompanying her grungy footwear, Rodrigo wore a vintage bright red Versace dress perfect for the festive season. The garment was form-fitted and short, featuring spaghetti straps and a slightly sheer bodice featuring shiny appliques. The straps were fitted with red crystal detailing, providing the dress with even more shine.
