Alaia Bombe Studded Beige Suede Sandal

Alaïa Bombe sandals | 4.5″ / 110mm heel | available in black suede, silver metallic and beige suede at Net-A-Porter and in beige leather at Modesens.

These Bombe sandals show Alaïa’s true craftsmanship with its architectural silhouette and thin stiletto heel. They feature a toe and ankle-strap embellished with sphere’s surrounded by delicate gunmetal pyramid studs which are meticulously applied by hand. We think the Bombe heel would pair nicely with ruffled knit & mini cocktail dresses or wide leg trousers.

Jada Pinkett-Smith wore Azzedine Alaïa sandals to the NY premiere of ‘After Earth’. These shoes feature red suede & pink stingray straps, back-zip closure and 115mm heel. They’re available online in red at Browns & Colette, black at Net-A-Porter or white at Montaigne Market.

She looks radiant and I adore this look from head-to-toe, especially her Blumarine floral printed & white striped dress. Jada carried a Jimmy Choo Cosma clutch in pink stingray and also accessorized with gold chain & diamond earrings.

I loved looking at the street style photos from Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week A/W 2013 however often they don’t credit the outfit or shoes. I browsed through a ton of pictures & here are my favorite shoes I spotted:
