Designer Shoes: Lea Michele

Lea Michele wore Charlotte Olympia Dolly pumps to the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards held at the USC Galen Center in Los Angeles. They’re from the Encore collection featuring nude-pink suede, almond toe, 145mm heel and 35mm mirrored gold covered island platform. Dolly is available in blush suede at Forward by Elyse Walker, Matches, Ssense and Charlotte Olympia.

She was pretty in azalea pink wearing a beautiful Elie Saab sleeveless lace cocktail dress with a scalloped eyelash hem plus silk georgette straps & corset-like trim from the Spring 2014 collection.

Lea’s hair & makeup, particularly the wispy faux bob and hot pink lip looks a little forced but overall it’s a playful, fun look – and perfect for the Nickelodeon orange carpet.

She carried a Fan di Fendi Baguette nude patent leather bag and also added a complementary peach parfait mani. A diamond Arrow cuff bracelet and Cat Mask ring by Anita Ko provided the perfect finishing gold touches.

She’s been busy making several promotional appearances for her debut album ‘Louder’. Lea arrived along with many other co-stars wearing a cotton-blend black sheer lace bustier dress by Milly from the Spring 2014 collection.

Other accessories included a Fendi Giano clutch and Dana Rebecca Sylvie Rose diamond earrings. With her hair swept back in an easy, no-fuss ponytail, she finished her look with a shimmery nude lip & nails.

Lea Michele wore B Brian Atwood Labrea sandals to ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration in LA. These heels feature white snakeskin covered cord straps, and asymmetric design. We’ve also seen the Labrea on Holland Roden and Solange Knowles. This style is unfortunately sold out but you can find new styles at Brian AtwoodShopbop, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.

She was another best-dressed at this event wearing a Calvin Klein Collection Resort 2014 asymmetric cut-out strapless dress with a sand sheer nylon threaded jacquard skirt covered with colorful deconstructed stitching. Lea carried a woven raffia Breen minaudière by Kotur and also accessorized with Anita Ko jewelry including a gold diamond ear cuff and triangle stud earrings. I have a major crush on her creamy pale nude nail color which looks a lot like OPI’s ‘My Vampire is Buff’.
