After a decade at Donna Karan as the VP of collection and refining his craft at Calvin Klein plus Alexander McQueen, among others, Paul Andrew burst onto the scene launching his namesake footwear line in 2013. Our love for his designs continue grow with the release of each new collection – we’re total fans.

The guy makes good shoes. His designs are incredibly versatile transitioning harmoniously from the red carpet (as seen on Lupita Nyong’oAmy Adams and Elizabeth Banks) to the feet of our favorite personal style bloggers including Jane Aldridge and Bridget Helene.

This season many footwear designers and brands, from Nicholas Kirkwood to Valentino, retired the celeb-favorite pin thin stiletto opting for the return of a chunky, block heel. This trendy shape is 70s infused with a hint of modern bohemian glamour that would make Bianca Jagger proud.

We pulled 10 fabulous examples of this trend now at retail…I guess the question is: will you be swapping your skinny summer-ready stilettos for this blocky silhouette?

Brian-Atwood-Donald-Robertson-Collaboration

After teaming up on a limited-edition book benefitting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society last year, the playful footwear designer and instafamous fashion illustrator Donald “Drawbertson” Robertson’s collaboration doesn’t stop there. They’ve also released several of Atwood’s signature styles featuring Donald’s iconic Pop Art lip print on white canvas from the latest Spring 2015 collection.

I wanted to write a quick post – probably the last of the year – sharing an update on the web site and life, really. This year proved to bring some difficult and trying changes but you know what? – I came out stronger, happier and full of life. I can already tell 2015 is going to be incredible and we have some fun projects in store for you! Some of you have been reading my blog for over five years (!) – I sincerely can’t thank you guys enough for the continued support.

I’m currently living in Los Angeles and started working with talented photographer Will Tee Yang. We went to go play at The Grove with a few of my favorite shoes and God bless Will for having the incredible skill to capture these photos because a model I am not.

I’m wearing the Christian Louboutin So Kate pumps and Gazolina boots:

Beyoncé attended the 2014 Billboard Women in Music Luncheon wearing a merlot knotted draped dress by Haute Hippie with a thigh-high side slit. She paired it with Gucci horsebit-embellished Claudie ankle-strap sandals in brown leather. These chunky 70s’-inspired platforms don’t do anything for her outfit…and they feel out of place.

Shoes She Should Have Worn: Beyoncé
Shoes-She-Should-Have-Worn-Beyonce-2014

Gianvito Rossi Gianvito iridescent leather pumps
You can’t go wrong with this beautiful single-sole shoe. This silhouette elongates the leg and also works perfectly paired with her 5:31 Jerome coat.

Oscar Tiye Zoe cage sandals
Since it’s December and the event was held in NY, I’m not crazy about an open-toe shoe however this unique tassel-embellished sandal in the warm rose gold is a playful option. P.S. – I have these shoes baby blue, j’adore!!!

Daniele Michetti Sveva slingback pumps
This spicy yellow snakeskin is a perfect complement for her burgundy dress. They also feature a low-cut heel counter and black woven leather trim.

Bionda Castana Dekota pump
I love these femme fatale inspired shoes with sexy corset-style laces, geometric leather paneling and sheer mesh sides. Check out how they look on the foot.

Gianvito Rossi Carey strappy pumps
I can’t get enough of these beautiful Fall ’14 shoes in natural python with three thin buckled front straps.

Nicholas Kirkwood colorful pointed-toe pumps
Beyoncé’s previously worn many shoes by Kirkwood and these pointed-toe heels are my wildcard choice featuring multi-color Mexican-inspired needlepoint embroidery. I like this shade of pink & aqua paired with her dress.

We may be heading into the homestretch of the dog days but our craving for all things summer – including cheery footwear, is still very much alive. Before we dive into fall styles (boots & boots galore) we want to share our favorite styles from Oscar Tiye’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

We’re huge fans of their bold designs and love supporting emerging brands who really bring something new to the shoe game. After being named “One to Watch” by WWD, designer Anima Muaddi went on to become a finalist for the 2014 Who is on Next? competition organized by Vogue Italia and AltaRoma.

You can shop this collection at FarFetch, LuisaViaRomaAntonioliAvenue32, The Queen and Passhion.

We love stalking photos of Parisian and Milanese runways, but it just so happens that a lot of the brightest shining soles aren’t the ones name dropped during late night television, they’re crafted by names that are just starting their ascent into greatness.

Here’s a list of our favorite up & coming designers, burgeoning brands and impressive footwear designs that have caught our eye. Since we began compiling this list months ago, several designers are already that much closer to fashion stardom! Many have spotted their work in an upcoming September issuegraced the feet of Hollywood’s finest or even landed a coveted spot in the iconic Bergdorf Goodman window displays.

Sarah-Flint-shoes

Sarah Flint
With internships at both Diane von Fürstenberg and Proenza Schouler under her belt, it isn’t surprising that the stunning shoes designed by Sarah Flint have a decidedly architectural bent. Adding a twist to classic designs, layered suede and shaped 3D leather are all a part of her impressive repertoire. As for us? We’re dying over her heeled Hayworth sandal.

Henri-Lepore-Dezert-shoes-Resort-2015

Henri Lepore Dezert
You might remember Henri Lepore Dezert from our recent interview with the designer himself, but just in case you need reminding, he’s a man with his star on the rise. Unafraid of mixing antique embellishments and sentiments with ferociously confident modern day flair, his designs are classic, yet sensual; perfect for work and for play.

Melis-Yildiz-shoes

Melis Yildiz
Blending traditional themes with high fashion touches (think: PVC detailing on a classic suede pump or metallic and textured thick heeled sandals), the punchy colored soles designed by Melis Paciotti for her brand Melis Yildiz are nothing short of show stoppers. Turkish born and Italy-based, elegance is met with vibrant sass with fabulous results.

Alejandra-G-shoes

Alejandra G.
Alejandra G. has one goal in mind: make an impact and make it big. The larger than life combinations of cherry red and leopard print, platform pumps and tassels, and snake print and studs just scratch the surface of the gotta-look-twice collections designed by the ever-fierce Alejandra. Slipping into a pair of these celebrity-endorsed sky-high heels will definitely make you the center of attention.

Giannico-Shoes

Giannico
Nicolò Beretta is a luxury footwear wunderkind and his brand Giannico reveals this 18-year-old’s massive talent. Giannico’s collections take architectural embellishments and flair to an entirely new level, weaving 3D geometric shapes into dramatic curves and swerves that have been snapped for the pages of Vogue Italia and Marie Claire Italia. Endlessly creative and new to the game, we’re sold on Giannico’s eclectic elegance.

Gianluca-Soldi-Shoes

Gianluca Soldi
Contemporary, sleek, confident. In a nutshell, that is Gianluca Soldi, whose designs balance the razor’s edge or romantic and modern. After freelance shoe designing for little brands you might have heard of (Kenzo, Dolce & Gabbana, and Versace to name a few), Gianluca started his own brand to fully encapsulate his vision. The result is sleek lines and vibrant color combinations, pin-thin heels and exotic skins, and we can’t get enough.

Gieseli-Dias-shoes

Giseli Dias 
For every understated Sofia Coppola, there’s a Lady Gaga to balance her out. If Lauren Marinis is the Sofia in question, Giseli Diaz must be Gaga circa Pokerface. Her shoes are stratospheric in height, the patterns and colors are brighter than Oz, and there are enough rhinestone embellishments to make Elizabeth Taylor lose her cool. Fierce and unique, Giseli Diaz’ shoes make a bold statement.

Lauren-Marinis-pumps-shoes

Lauren Marinis
You might think that sky-high 5 inch heels aren’t for everyone, but one glance at Lauren Marinis’ vibrant, unique, and undeniably elegant collection will change your mind in a heartbeat. Using iridescent greys, teal snakeskins, and dyed calf-hair to prove sophistication can be vibrant, luxury never looked so obtainable. Her pumps will fill you with confidence and make you look like you have legs that go on for months, what more could you possibly want in a killer pair of shoes? Excuse us, we’re swooning over here.

Chloe-Gosselin-Shoes
Chloe Gosselin
Chloe Gosselin has stated that music, vintage aesthetics, and visual arts deeply inspire her collections and the resulting dark romance of her shoes is palpable – every design in her fall 2014 collection was named after a poisonous flower, after all – and yet, she never loses a sense of deep-rooted luxury or sophistication. Every discrete detail and hint of snakeskin belie an adoration of immaculate quality that would be at home on any cobblestoned Parisian street, and that sense of easy chic is priceless.

Malone-Souliers-shoes

Malone Souliers
With a keen eye for detail and an adoration of luxury, Mary Alice Malone – the genius behind the brand – brings new life to staples. Flawlessly, she blends pops of color, ropes of suede as ankle straps, sleek lines evocative of equestrian gear (unsurprising, as she was a member of the Junior Olympic Equestrian Team as a youth), and exotic skins into soles that demand to be worn to work and to a ritzy soiree after. Simplicity doesn’t denote mediocrity and Malone Soulier’s not-so-basic basics seal the deal. We especially love the strappy peeptoes and the ankle booties.

Charkviani-shoes

Charkviani
Charkviani is a brand with modern aesthetics with an international twist, aiming to make their footwear collections wearable art. Their shoes are fit with fringes, ruffles, patent tortoiseshell leather, and thick ombre plexiglass heels, making the concept not for the faint of heart, but for the fiercest of the fierce. Having aided the shoe designs of Diesel, Chloe, John Richmond, and Kanye West, Charkviani is leading the charge to make their own name.

Thomas-Lieuvin-shoes

Thomas Lieuvin 
Dedicated to comfort and to style, Thoman Lieuvin is a brand that almost seems too good to be true. Fanciful and feminine, every minute detail of his collections – from the vamp zipper to the superfluously chic straps, from the combination of printed calf hair and vibrant leather – urges you to take a step out of your comfort zone and into a new, chic state of mind. Think of it as Alice waking up in a Technicolor Wonderland, where you are Alice and Technicolor Wonderland is Bergdorf Goodman.

Andrea-Wazen-shoes

Andrea Wazen
After studying fashion design in Paris and learning the ropes from internships at Rupert Sanderson, Elie Saab and Christian Louboutin, Andrea Wazen launched her own namesake luxury shoe line. Her designs exude feminine elegance topped off with their own “distinct personality” which you can shop at her beautiful boutique in Beirut, Lebanon.

Poise-Design-shoes

Poise Design
Candied apple sweet and Betty Page sassy, Poise Design is the perfect brand for the women who love a little (or a lot) of glitter to go with their electric pink, who love their pink loafers studded and their bows emblazoned with rhinestones. There is a very good chance that slipping into a pair of Poise Design’s shoes will make you feel like you’re playing a round of Pretty Pretty Princess, but when Cinderella herself would be jealous of your shoe collection, all you should feel is pride.

Karen-Gallo-shoes

Karen Gallo
If this day and age in fashion has one singular runaway trend that has exploded with unforeseen popularity, it’s blending urban flair with uptown sophistication and that fierce combination is honed to a gorgeous leather point in the hands of newcomer Karen Gallo. If structured lines, a monochromatic color palette, and contemporary verve is a hint of the collections to come, we’re officially waiting with bated breath.

Ffion-Lloyd-Shoes

Ffion Lloyd 
Inspired by the gorgeous vibrancy and intricacy of nature, Ffion Lloyd is a London-based footwear designer specializing in bringing atoms, crystals, cells, and other little-noticed microcosms to fashion life. She’s worked for Tom Ford, Sophia Webster, and Marc Jacobs, which only spells a positive future for her solo career. We personally can’t wait to see the stunning, mother nature-inspired collections she creates.

Written by Shannon Weston

Blake Lively attended the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center on Monday in New York City. She wore a mossy green sleeveless mini dress covered in pink confetti-like flower appliqué with a scalloped hem by Michael Kors from the Resort 2015 collection.

She ran with the ’60s mod feel of the dress by adding a thick blush satin headband, pink suede Casadei platform pumps, plus large diamond hoop earrings and diamond encrusted natural wood bangles by Lorraine Schwartz.

Considering it was a fashion fête, you can’t blame her for trying, but she went too far with the accessories. I wish Blake ditched the OTT jewels and opted for a complementary single sole sandal.

Shoes She Should Have Worn: (based on Blake loosing the jewels)

Shoes-She-Should-Have-Worn-Blake-Lively

Sophia Webster mixed media Alicia t-strap sandals
These playful shoes are my spiciest choice featuring mirrored rose gold leather with fluorescent embroidery and yellow leather-trimmed insole.

Aperlaï Simple D ankle-strap sandals in pale pink leather
This is my favorite selection and the most complementary sandal embellished with a Swarovski crystal-studded toe strap plus caviar-beaded heel.

Aperlaï Liberty Rivets sandals in pink leather & transparent PVC
Aperlaï has a truly fabulous spring collection filled with red carpet ready shoes including these cutout sandals adorned with micro studded panels of clear PVC.

Christian Louboutin Aqueduchesse sandals in glitter-coated leather
We know Blake has M.Louboutin on speed dial and could get her hands on these brand new sexy lace-up sandals.

Rupert Sanderson Corona strappy sandals
They’re from the Spring 2014 Antonio Berardi collaboration in a beautiful mirrored apricot leather with a ribbon candy inspired toe strap – total statement makers!

Giannico Cosmopolitan t-strap sandals
Once again, Giannico is the wild card. Assuming her clunky jewels are out of the picture, the smooth pale pink leather combined with the yellow spiral adds a bit of finesse and fun.

Which pair do you like for Blake? Check out more Shoes She Should Have Worn posts.

This week Marion Cotillard attended the premiere of her latest film, ‘Two Days, One Night’ during the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. As a veteran ambassador of Dior, she wore the brand head-to-toe including an off-white pleated silk sleeveless dress with a high-low hem from the Spring 2014 Couture collection.

These fresh-off-the-runway Resort 2015 wrap booties might have worked for a photo call but they’re much too heavy for this ultra-glamorous red carpet premiere. I wish she had taken a shoe cue from Jessica Chastain and Rosario Dawson by selecting a memorable statement pump.

Shoes She Should Have Worn:

Shoes-She-Should-Have-Worn-Marion-Cotillard
Stuart Weitzman Nudist ankle-strap sandal in lapis foil nappa
There’s a reason these are already the most celebrity-loved red carpet shoe of 2014, they’re the perfect strappy sandal and available in over a dozen styles.

Christian Dior Haute Couture silver buckle and cube chainmail heels rimmed with tiny roses
Marion wore these ‘modern pilgrim’ pumps to the recent Met Gala but I feel they deserve the spotlight once again. They’re exquisite and the most obvious choice as they were presented with her dress on the runway.

Nicholas Kirkwood navy satin & velvet PVC asymmetric sandals
These classic evening shoes complement the navy geometric floral appliqué and square sequin embroidery along the back of her dress.

Bionda Castana Daphne Bis white silk satin pump with a fine silver lace overlay
J’adore these romantic, feminine shoes which work with her stunning diamond encrusted oversized chain link necklace by Chopard.

Christian Louboutin tricolor Gwynitta patent leather strappy sandal
The Gwynitta is Julianne Moore’s Cannes shoe-of-choice and I would have loved to see Marion add this slight pop of teal to the mix.

Giannico Picasso pink & yellow patent leather, black satin and mirrored blue pump from the Fall 2014 collection
