Olivia Palermo wore Aquazzura Madison pumps to the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in NYC. They’re from the Fall 2013 collection featuring black silk satin, spotted feather embellishment around the ankle and long ribbon laces. Unfortunately this style is sold out but you shop the latest collection (now on discount!) at Shopbop and MyTheresa.

She also wore a two-piece look by Ann Taylor including a completely fringed (she loves fringe) long sleeve top paired with an embroidered black knee-length skirt. Aside from the shoes, (which she’s worn before), this outfit is much too boring for Olivia.

She finished her look with a Lulu Guinness black perspex Lips clutch, Rebecca Minkoff Long Bar Pave Stone earrings and kohl-rimmed eyes.

Here’s a look at my favorite new arrivals this week. The 12 styles featured below are from the latest Resort 2014 collections. My thoughts:
I’m not crazy about the new thicker strap sandals from Saint Laurent (I prefer the skinnier straps) but I do like this new embellished sandal which features a fun pearl studded t-strap.
This summer I tried on this adorable ‘Taboo’ sandal by Jerome C. Rousseau in silver glitter fabric and it’s now available featuring a flat side bow & silver pin heel.
For resort, Aquazzura redesigned two of his popular styles…the Beverly Hills sandal which debuted in a beautiful aqua snakeskin & the signature Sexy Thing sandal bootie has now been updated with a gold pin heel.
Sandra Bullock was the first celebrity to wear Giuseppe Zanotti’s safety pin d’Orsay sandal and they’re also carried in a funky leopard-print calf hair + blue suede combination.

Giuliana Rancic wore Aquazzura Beverly Hills sandals to the 2013 American Music Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. They’re from the Fall 2013 collection and a favorite Olivia Palermo’s featuring black suede, corset-style laces and 115mm heel. Beverly Hills is available in black suede at My-Wardrobe or mirrored gold with a 100mm heel at Saks Fifth Avenue.

The E! correspondent posed wearing a strapless cocktail number by Three Floor with a rose gold lamé skirt, black lace overlay, lace covered nude top and black harness straps. I love you Giuliana but this dress looks like your trying to sneak into a high school homecoming dance.

She also accessorized with a Le Vian serpent diamond cocktail ring and Chimento Gioiellieri diamond earrings.
