Designer Shoes: Ruthie Davis

Ruthie-Davis-Eastgate-Sandal-Sofia-Vergara

Sofia Vergara wore Ruthie Davis Eastgate platform sandals to the LA premiere of ‘Machete Kills’ held at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live. They’re from the Spring 2013 collection featuring black patent leather, 5.5″ heel and mint leather sole. We’ve also seen spotted them on Leven Rambin and Gabrielle Union. Eastgate is available online at Amazon.

She looked stunning wearing a Zuhair Murad Resort 2014 black dress with a bubble effect Chantilly lace covered embroidered bodice and silk chiffon voluminous skirt. Sofia carried a Salvatore Ferragamo geometrical-shaped minaudière and added several jewelry pieces by David Webb including an emerald cocktail ring and Art Deco diamond drop earrings.

I wanted to get this post out last week but TIFF kicked my butt. I have such a soft spot for a good strappy shoe and NYFW did not disappoint. Manolo Blahnik had the most collaborations again this season, 20 total.

Highlights:
Brian Atwood designed his popular Evie open-toe pump in several yummy confectionary colors for Dennis Basso.
Gio Diev debuted his first collaboration with Sally LaPointe. The pumps were strong & sexy with a high-rise front, slightly padded straps & pinhole closures.
– I hope you like mules…they’re sky-high & sexy as ever. The standout designs were seen down the runway at both Altuzarra and Victoria Beckham.
Sophia Webster burst onto the scene with her debut collection last year. She has officially hit a whole new level and has already collaborated with J.Crew!

My favorites:
Cesare Casadei for Prabal Gurung is a brilliant match. This season we saw sexy slingback pumps with several thin straps wrapped around the heel.
Christian Louboutin for Marchesa‘s fairytale-inspired collection was extra dreamy & romantic with lace-up laser cut suede pumps.
Marissa Webb was my all-around favorite. Her slightly sporty pumps are wearable (4-4.5″ heel) and have the corset lace-up front which I’m crazy about.
– The super strappy pumps at Narcriso Rodriguez were another stand out, and this black & white snakeskin design is TDF.

I love this futuristic shoe! The Robot is my new favorite Ruthie heel. The Robot will be available in multiple color combinations at Neiman Marcus for Spring 2011 and will retail for $965. If you’re looking to wear Ruthie’s shoes immediately, check out her fall/winter 2010 collection.
