Rita Ora was spotted on her way to the 2013 British Fashion Awards after party wearing Tom Ford sandals. These shoes are from the Fall 2013 collection featuring zebra-print calf hair, cone-shaped heel and gold pin chain strap. They’re available (now on sale!) at Neiman Marcus.
As expected, the shoes presented in London were cheery, playful and full of florals. The chunky platform is still very much alive and tromped down the runways complete with a tractor sole at Mary Katrantzou and ombré lucite heel at Erdem. Mules have also made a recent comeback (seen at Victoria Beckham during NYFW). The Christian Louboutin for Todd Lynn mules are sleek with a tapered platform and stacked heel.
I’ve featured several of my favorite collections and collaborations with Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin, Rupert Sanderson & Nicholas Kirkwood.
My favorites: - Rupert Sanderson‘s first collaboration with Antonio Berardi was a huge success. I love all of the designs but especially the rose gold & pink strappy sandal. - The Manolo Blahnik scale-print cap-toe pump for Felder Felder is amazing, here’s a close-up photo. - Check out the gold chain link stiletto seen at Tom Ford - and I’m not sure I would ever take these lace-up leather booties off my feet.
Jennifer Lopez wore Tom Ford padlock pumps to the Viva Movil NYC flagship store opening. This style debuted in the Fall 2012 collection featuring white patent leather, gold padlock on the double wrap ankle-strap and gold tip stiletto. They’ve been reissued for the Fall ’13 collection in pink suede & black leather at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
She’s a fashion chameleon alternating between glitzy glam and more feminine, ethereal looks like this Pre-Fall white flare cocktail dress with lace bodice by Elie Saab. Jennifer also accessorized with fresh wispy blown out locks, carnation pink lip, Norman Silverman diamond tennis bracelets and Brumani translucent quartz earrings.

She looked lovely wearing a new Prabal Gurung paisley printed dress with long sheer white sleeves from the Fall 2013 collection.

This is her second season as judge on the show and she walked the red carpet wearing a long sleeve black wrap dress. Jessie also cut her long locks and debuted a new-old signature bob. Later this week she will shave her head on live TV to raise money for Comic Relief.
This season we saw an interesting variety of shoes strut down the catwalk in London. Manolo Blahnik had the greatest number of collaborations (just like at NYFW) followed by Christian Louboutin, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia, Bionda Castana (for Fyodor Goland) and Desirée Barroso (for Emilio de la Morena).
Designs I liked: Mary Katrantzou pumps with a lush velvet wide strap, Michael van der Ham pin heel pumps and Erdem brogue heels featuring an oversized western style buckled ankle-strap.
Not surprisingly, Tom Ford wins for the most elaborate & embellished designs. There were several different colors of suede knee-high peep-toe boots completely covered with sequin floral embroidery.
