Designer Shoes: Minka Kelly


Minka Kelly wore Brian Atwood Cassandra pumps to the 2013 Fox Fall Eco-Casino Party in LA. These heels are from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection featuring nude patent leather and 120mm heel. Cassandra is available (with the 120mm heel) in red & purple suede at Farfetch.

She’s one of the most beautiful ladies in Hollywood but I haven’t been crazy about any of her recent red carpet outfits. Minka finally chose a look to love. Her LBD by Versace has a scoop neckline, iconic logo detailed straps, v cut-out back and reverse zip closure.

I’m overlooking her dull shoe choice this time but I don’t understand why celebrities aren’t embracing Atwood’s stunning statement shoes (these pumps would have been perfect).

Minka’s tresses were styled in cascading curls and she also added a pinky nude glossy lip. Other accessories included Jamie Wolf onyx Large Scallop Drop earrings and a Rose Gold Bead bracelet by Graziela Gems.

Minka Kelly wore Christian Louboutin So Kate pumps to ‘The Butler’ LA premiere. They’re a must-have style from the Fall 2013 collection featuring a beautiful rose noir patent leather and 120mm heel. This color sold like hotcakes & apparently everyone is a 36.5 because I keep missing my size. : (

You can still find the So Kate online in rose noir at Neiman Marcus & Bergdorf Goodmangrenadine glitter at Saks Fifth Avenue or bronze python at Christian Louboutin US.

Finally, Minka gave us a look to love. She wore a red cocktail dress by Dolce & Gabbana with a ruched chiffon top and full lace skirt. Minka’s wavy locks were twisted back in a volumious half-up, half-down style. She also accessorized with a slightly smudgy smokey eye and several gold rings.

Minka Kelly wore Brian Atwood Hester sandals to the NYC premiere of Lee Daniels’ ‘The Butler’ held at the Ziegfeld Theater. These shoes are from the Fall 2013 collection featuring nude patent leather, strappy front and 120mm heel. Hester is available in nude patent leather & black/gold at Brian Atwood or black/gold at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Her red carpet recipe is a unique blend of beauty & comfort. Minka loves her flowy dresses and chose a Sophie Theallet Fall 2013 tulip-print silk evening gown with a black underlay, asymmetric bodice and gathered floor-length skirt. She also accessorized with Irene Neuwirth onyx marquis earrings and onyx bracelet.

Minka Kelly wore Casadei platform pumps to the Fox All-Star Party in LA. These heels are from an older collection featuring charcoal suede plus a double suede & stacked platform. You can find older styles on sale at Yoox.

She also chose a graphic print Monique Lhuillier dress of white & sapphire-colored lace with sheer sleeveless from the Resort 2014 collection inspired by Palm Springs. My wish is that any look we see worn by Monique Lhuillier is complemented with the presentation shoes. Her shoes (which debuted several seasons ago) are just too good to pass up and I prefer the white perforated pumps over Minka’s dark suede pumps.

Other accessories included a Graziela Gems A Band Is A Band ring plus Double Chevron ring and Diamond Zig Zag ring by EF Collection.

This event promotes heart health awareness among women and each celebrity that walked the catwalk last night each wore red dress by different designers. Minka wore an Oscar de la Renta halter-neck draped gown with a ruched bodice from the Resort 2013 collection.
