Emma Thompson was made a dame at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday, and she made a solid shoe choice for the special occasion.

The Oscar-winning actress collected the honor from Prince William and was joined by her husband Greg Wise, as well as their daughter, Gaia, and their son, Tindy Agaba Wise at the investiture.

After she famously carried her Louboutins in one hand and a martini in the other as she walked on stage barefoot at the 2014 Golden Globes, Thompson continued her crusade for comfortable footwear at the Palace. She paired her Stella McCartney suit with a pair of trainers, and the bright white pair look like they could also be from Stella's collection.

She also wore a badge on her blazer from The Fawcett Society, which campaigns to end the gender pay gap, alongside a red poppy ahead of Remembrance Sunday.

It wasn't just her outfit that Thompson had fun with. The BBC reports that the star shared a joke with Prince William as she received the damehood from him.

"I've known him since he was little and we just sniggered at each other," she told reporters after the ceremony. She added that it was "a very lovely feeling" to now be a dame and to collect the honor from the prince.

Thompson has won two Academy Awards, three Baftas and two Golden Globe Awards during her 29-year acting career. She most recently appeared on screen in The Children Act based on the best-selling novel by Ian McEwan. Congratulations to Dame Emma.
