What Shoes to Expect on the Red Carpet in 2014

red carpetAward season is right around the corner! I wanted to share what shoes we can expect to see Hollywood’s A-list stars pair with their gorgeous gowns. For the most important red carpet events of the year including The Oscars, Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards, celebrities need a beautiful shoe they can walk in for hours (and hours).

Platform styles are popular since they’re easy on the feet and give ample height for long ball skirts. We also usually see silk satin, sheer floral lace and metallic leather designs plus oodles of crystal & glitter embellishment.

Last year at The Oscars, Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence wore Brian Atwood Hamper pumps under her Christian Dior gown, Kristen Stewart stuck with her go-to Vibe pumps by Jimmy Choo, Jessica Chastain chose sky-high Christian Louboutin Volpi d’Orsay sandals and Sandra Bullock wore Jimmy Choo’s crystal covered Kalpa sandals.

Several designers such as Charlotte Olympia, Jimmy Choo and Brian Atwood also offer white satin styles which can be custom dyed to perfectly match any gown. At the Emmy Awards last year Zoey Deschanel wore Charlotte Olympia’s signature Paloma pumps in custom pale grey blue.

    Any idea when or where the Louboutin silver glitter Youpi will be available? I want them for my wedding!

    • Hi Nandita, I haven’t seen the ‘Youpi’ in glitter yet, I would call your closest Christian Louboutin store and they should be able to tell you which boutiques will stock it.
