Kool Daniels Goes Viral in White Dress and Side-Slit Heels at NBA Draft – Footwear News
Australian professional basketball player Dyson Daniels recently celebrated being the 8th overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, pledging to join the New Orleans Pelicans for the next NBA season. The 19-year-old may have expected to be the center of attention in the draft, but his proud mother’s top-notch style stole some of the show on Thursday’s decisive night.
To support her son at the Brooklyn-based NBA Draft event, Kool-Daniels wore a sleek white dress with a mid-calf hemline. The eye-catching dress featured a side slit that featured peplum-like ruffle detailing, with the doting mother wearing stiletto sandals to complete the look. The heels featured a caged silhouette.
Kool-Daniels tagged Australian boutique Mona Lisa in an Instagram photo showing her wearing the dress with her two other sons.
After her son was drafted by New Orleans, Kools-Daniels changed into after-party attire to celebrate her child’s NBA triumph. Donning a colorful hot pink dress with side cutouts and a thigh-high slit, Kools-Daniels posed with her new NBA star in sandals.
Kools-Daniels wasn’t the only one drawing attention to her NBA Draft style pick. Dyson Daniels also went viral for modeling a high fashion “leaf” suit for the occasion. To find out his fate, Daniels wore a tailored silver metallic patterned suit jacket and matching trousers, pairing the look with a light gray button-up shirt, black bow tie and black buckled loafers.
At the end of the night, mother and son accessorized their outfits with New Orleans Pelicans hats.
