Shoes She Should Have Worn: Ciara

Late in 2010 Ciara told Pride magazine, “I think I probably own maybe a thousand pairs…It depends on the items, but, on an average shopping trip I probably spend a minimum of $1,200. It’s not that bad! On average, I will spend about $11,000 a month (on shoes).” At the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards I was disappointed to see the Givenchy sandals Ciara chose with her beautiful Emilio Pucci dress. I know Ciara loves fierce heels but the Givenchy’s didn’t work.

The Grammy’s red carpet is known for an eclectic array of fashion choices. Plus when you know Lady Gaga is on the guest list you can take crazier chances! I know Ciara is (was?) Givenchy’s muse, maybe she tried to pay homage to the brand by wearing the heels? Just a guess because I can’t imagine any other reason why she would have choosen them.

Shoes She Wore:
Givenchy black zipper sandals from the Spring 2009 collection

Shoes She Should Have Worn:

Shoes She Should Have Worn Ciara

Alexandre Birman python ankle sandals; available online at Luisaviaroma
I really love these sandals with Ciara’s dress. The color and style of the sandal works well with her look.

Emilio Pucci multi-string cage sandal; available online at Luisaviaroma
Like Ciara’s dress, these sandals are also from Pucci’s Spring 2011 collection & would have been a safe but stylish choice.

Emilio Pucci suede cuissard leced boots; available online a Luisaviaroma
I really wish Ciara would have choose the boots. They were debuted with the dress on the runway & would have completed her look. I was also shocked to see these boots available online (currently only available in a 39) – adding them to my wish list!

Roberto Cavalli laced alligator sandal; from the Spring 2011 collection
I think an off white, lighter colored sandal would have also been an unusual but stunning choice.

    (or the pucci sandals if she didn’t wanna go too matchy-matchy.)
    but really, those zipper sandals were way too heavy with that dress.

    you are absolutely right, that shoe was all wrong, any of your suggestions would have been better than what she’s wearing. The Givenchy just seems too heavy, bulky, wrong color, or something like that, didnt accentuate the dress at all (which i do love the dress on her) Of your picks I would have chosen the Birman or Cavalli –
