Marion Cotillard wore Christian Dior sculpted pumps to the premiere of ‘Waltz for Monica’ at the 2013 Marrakech International Film Festival. They’re from the Fall 2013 collection featuring black mesh, suede trim, sculpted wedge and thin asymmetrical strap. You can shop Dior styles on discount at Yoox and Bluefly.
She also wore the last look from Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall 2013 collection including a two-part dark navy silk dress layered with a striped orange & black silk evening dress.
Marion’s hair was pulled back in a chignon leaving out her brow-skimming bangs. She finished her look with a Dior Venis Blue Label 997 mani, pretty pink pout and metallic blue rimmed eyes.
When warmer climates arrive, the boots get stored away and cheery sandals (strappier the better) come out to play. I love a classic court shoe but the brighter & more playful spring shoes are always my favorites.
Style.com’s Spring 2014 Accessories Index was just released and market director Marina Larroudé reveals the news on shoes spotlighting 10 standout styles. Her selections focus on several upcoming footwear trendsincluding mules, sportysandals and kitten-heel pumps.
Notes: I’ve named Isabel Marant’s latest creation the moccanstock since they’re a hybrid of a moccasin combined with a Birkenstock-style footbed. Gianvito Rossi solidified the spotlight again this season with his super sexy mules – which he also designed for Altuzarra.
Sporty shoes covered the runways at Milan Fashion Week and the most obvious example of this trend is Prada’s athletic-inspired heels featuring thick rubber bumpers. My favorite choice from Larroudé’s list is Tabitha Simmons super strappy pump in white leather; I imagine these look amazing on the foot.
My top picks: As usual, my selections are all about the heels and this season they’re especially different from the editor’s picks. I can never pass up a hot shoe! There were so many styles pulling at my heartstrings, it was difficult narrowing this down to 10.
Notes: Gianvito Rossi is the “master of the mule” and I love the mirrored leather combined with black python. Fendi’s silicone sandals are architecturally amazing and check out the industrial caged “double heels”. I adore Charlotte Olympia’s “Overboard” sea-inspired collection and yes, those are upside down mermaid heels! Diego Dolcini’s strappy sandal is a signature style redesigned in a trendy violet tulip neoprene and captivating shade of indigo.
Marion Cotillard wore Christian Dior pumps to the premiere of ‘Blood Ties’ at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. These heels are from the Winter 2013 collection featuring black glazed leather, 100mm heel and pale pink leather overlay at the toe & heel.
She posed wearing a navy floral lace Dior sheer dress with a short front and long train. The dress is beautiful but I have several problems with the mishmash styling. I would have preferred Marion’s midriff covered, a more feminine updo (the super sleek look is too harsh), and she absolutely needed to remove the green stingray cuff.
Jessica Biel was spotted making her way to an event at Saks Fifth Avenue for the inauguration of the new windows dedicated to the House of Dior’s Fall-Winter 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection. She wore Christian Dior pumps from the Spring 2013 collection featuring mirrored rose gold patent leather, curved heel and asymmetric cut front.
She was appropriately dressed in everything Dior for the event including an ecru long sleeve dress with an asymmetric hem and ivory bottom panel. Jessica carried a baby blue python clutch and also added a classic red mani. She finished her look with a gold cannage design cuff bracelet from the My Dior jewelry collection.
Christa B. Allen wore Christian Dior slingbacks to the 12th Annual InStyle Summer Soirée held at the Mondrian Los Angeles. These heels are from the Spring 2013 collection featuring metallic blue leather, asymmetric front cut, long pointed-toe and sculpted heel.
Jessica Paré is featured in the July 2013 issue of S Moda wearing Christian Dior ankle-strap pumps. These Fall 2013 shoes feature black suede, thin wrap around ankle-strap and 108mm sculpted heel. Sofia Vergara also wore these in Harper’s Bazaar.
The Canadian actress who stars as Megan Draper on ’Mad Men’ posed for the Spanish magazine wearing three different looks including leather & lace. Jessica said this Davidelfin blue number ”Looks like he has designed it for me, fits me like a glove”. It’s from the Spring 2013 collection with a pleated skirt, white collar and currently on sale.
Sofia Vergara is featured in the August 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar wearing Christian Dior heels. These Fall 2013 shoes feature black suede, thin wrap around ankle-strap and sculpted heel. This style is not yet at retail but you can shop current Dior styles at FarFetch and Colette.
She’s gearing up for Season 5 of ‘Modern Family’ and also promoting her new film, ‘Machete Kills’ which premieres this October. Sofia posed for photographer Terry Richardson wearing a red trench also from Dior’s Fall 2013 collection paired with Harry Winston diamond earrings.
It’s become tradition – every season I enjoy looking through the Accessories Index at Style.com and selecting my top 10 shoe picks.
First, these are market director Marina Larroudé’s top choices:
Here are my top picks:
I would love to know what’s on your must-have list. Sophia Webster’s embroidered boot is such a standout! Another easy addition to my list was the crystal-embellished sandal by Tabitha Simmons – it’s so stunning. Not surprisingly, Ms.Olivia Palermo has already snatched up & worn the beautiful Aquazzura Madison feather pumps.
