It was a winning moment for Philly when Bradley Cooper and his date, mom Gloria Cooper, made their way to E!'s Ryan Seacrest on the Academy Awards red carpet Sunday night, and gave an enthusiastic "Hi, Philadelphia!" before a live national audience.
The city roared in response.
And now that we've chewed and digested full head-to-toe Oscar looks, imagine our surprise when we realized we had completely overlooked Mama Cooper's choice of footwear! The local woman we have to thank for rearing and raising the star of "Silver Linings Playbook" opted for comfort at the Dolby Theatre by pairing metallic sneakers beneath her dress. We assume the shoes - largely disregarded by the un-trained eye - were safely tucked beneath her black gown for most of the evening. However the always faithful paparazzi managed to snap a few images of the Coopers, in full, on the red carpet.
Do you think the sneakers were a nice personal touch from Mrs. Cooper?
