Her hair was styled in an extreme side-parted chignon before finishing with a cool raspberry rose lip. She also added rings by Repossi & Anita Ko plus a Dior Mise en Dior pearl earring.

Winter is upon us, which can only mean onething for the ever-moving world of fashion: Spring shoes are just around the corner and a heap of new trends is going to come with it. It’s intimidating, but have no fear! While you’ve been zipping up your knee high boots, we’ve been hot on the trail of the best shoe styles of the upcoming season. Even though it was difficult to narrow it down, here are the trends we’re most looking forward to for Spring 2014:
Mules: Not to be confused with the animal, mules are shoes characterized by their exposed heel and this Spring 2014 season they are everywhere. Backless shoes are a trend everyone can rock, as they come in a myriad of heights. We spotted them on the catwalks of mega-brands Alexander Wang, Chloé, Stella McCartney, and Céline. Our faves? Of course, Gianvito Rossi is the master of the mule – he even designed Altuzarra’s gorgeous runway mules – but, we also can’t help but love Monique Lhuillier’s gorgeous use of PVC in her heel-baring designs and Christian Louboutin’s bead-embellished creations.
Placid Blue: This icy-toned blue is one of Pantone’s top picks for the Spring 2014 season. Dubbed “placid blue,” this hue does indeed have a calming and serene quality about it and designers latched onto it for their warmer weather designs. Used as both the main color and as an accenting neutral, we love the way this normally subversive color is taking control this season. From the curved heel of Walter Steiger’s glorious pump to Miu Miu’s chunky heeled platform, this color has proven itself to be much more than an Easter egg favorite.
Freesia: As if to tell placid blue to move over and share the stage, this Pantone pick is a blazing yellow that commands attention. Freesia is the color of electric citrus, and where placid blue is a blue sky, freesia is the smoldering sun. Just a glimpse at the color instantly energizes you, which is why it isn’t surprising that designers such as Giuseppe Zanotti, Nicholas Kirkwood, Prada, ShoeRazzi favorite Jerome C. Rousseau, and John Galliano (spotted on the trendy heels of Rita Ora) have all utilized this vibrant color. After all, there is no better way to add a kick of ferocity to an outfit than with a sick pair of shoes!
Sporty: This spring, the femininity of high heels are combining with an unexpected element: sportiness. We briefly delved into this trend in our recap of the hottest shoes on the Milanese runways, but this trend is proving to be much more than a footnote. Whether it’s through the use of athletic materials such as perforated leather (Daniele Michetti), woven nylon (Balenciaga), and neoprene (John Galliano), or through design like Emilio Pucci’s padded leather straps, Prada’s rubber bumpers and sole, or Christian Dior’s sneaker laces, it’s clear that one of the hottest trends of Spring 2014 is combining urban style with luxury.
Funky Embellishments: For the past couple seasons, wild embellishments have been a designer standby to make their shoes really stand out, and this season is no different. We’re seeing a wealth of extravagant and unique embellishments that are making classic shoe designs total statement makers. From Sophia Webster’s spunky and vibrant butterfly wings to Bionda Castana’s ingenious use of lace and silicone to create a leopard print, using embellishments is the go-to way to make your shoes the most enviable soles on the block. Christian Louboutin even got in on the trend with his darling doorknocker embellishments and that’s how you know it’s a must-follow trend.
Floral Appliqué: Along the same vein of embellishments, another incredibly popular trend during this upcoming spring and summer season is the use of floral appliqués. It makes sense when you think about it: what better way to celebrate warm weather’s flowers and gorgeous variety of colors than using those very vessels of vibrancy as shoe-spiration? The flowers range from subtle (Christian Dior, Brian Atwood) to a veritable bouquet (we’re looking at you Aperlai and Kotur!), but no matter the size of the flower, we love the elegance and femininity it effortlessly conveys.
Beaded: By this time, you’re probably sensing a theme: next season is all about personality-filled shoes. The more accoutrements the better. Following the shoe jewelry trend (shoewlry? We’ll work on a name for this, we promise), some of the hottest shoes you’ll be seeing in Spring 2014 are ornately beaded works of footwear art. Emilio Pucci’s Masai-inspired beading is picture perfect, Paul Andrew’s floral inspiration combines two trends in one pump, and Aperlai’s caviar beaded platform shoes – seen on Willow Shields during The Hunger Games: Catching Fire press tour – is edgy while still being darling. However, the shoe that takes the bead-embellished cake is definitely Jerome C. Rousseau’s multi-beaded, multi-dimensional heel, which is sure to turn heads.
When warmer climates arrive, the boots get stored away and cheery sandals (strappier the better) come out to play. I love a classic court shoe but the brighter & more playful spring shoes are always my favorites.
Style.com’s Spring 2014 Accessories Index was just released and market director Marina Larroudé reveals the news on shoes spotlighting 10 standout styles. Her selections focus on several upcoming footwear trendsincluding mules, sportysandals and kitten-heel pumps.
Notes: I’ve named Isabel Marant’s latest creation the moccanstock since they’re a hybrid of a moccasin combined with a Birkenstock-style footbed. Gianvito Rossi solidified the spotlight again this season with his super sexy mules – which he also designed for Altuzarra.
Sporty shoes covered the runways at Milan Fashion Week and the most obvious example of this trend is Prada’s athletic-inspired heels featuring thick rubber bumpers. My favorite choice from Larroudé’s list is Tabitha Simmons super strappy pump in white leather; I imagine these look amazing on the foot.
My top picks: As usual, my selections are all about the heels and this season they’re especially different from the editor’s picks. I can never pass up a hot shoe! There were so many styles pulling at my heartstrings, it was difficult narrowing this down to 10.
Notes: Gianvito Rossi is the “master of the mule” and I love the mirrored leather combined with black python. Fendi’s silicone sandals are architecturally amazing and check out the industrial caged “double heels”. I adore Charlotte Olympia’s “Overboard” sea-inspired collection and yes, those are upside down mermaid heels! Diego Dolcini’s strappy sandal is a signature style redesigned in a trendy violet tulip neoprene and captivating shade of indigo.
Marion Cotillard wore Christian Dior pumps to the premiere of ‘Blood Ties’ at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. These heels are from the Winter 2013 collection featuring black glazed leather, 100mm heel and pale pink leather overlay at the toe & heel.
She posed wearing a navy floral lace Dior sheer dress with a short front and long train. The dress is beautiful but I have several problems with the mishmash styling. I would have preferred Marion’s midriff covered, a more feminine updo (the super sleek look is too harsh), and she absolutely needed to remove the green stingray cuff.
Jessica Biel was spotted making her way to an event at Saks Fifth Avenue for the inauguration of the new windows dedicated to the House of Dior’s Fall-Winter 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection. She wore Christian Dior pumps from the Spring 2013 collection featuring mirrored rose gold patent leather, curved heel and asymmetric cut front.
She was appropriately dressed in everything Dior for the event including an ecru long sleeve dress with an asymmetric hem and ivory bottom panel. Jessica carried a baby blue python clutch and also added a classic red mani. She finished her look with a gold cannage design cuff bracelet from the My Dior jewelry collection.
Christa B. Allen wore Christian Dior slingbacks to the 12th Annual InStyle Summer Soirée held at the Mondrian Los Angeles. These heels are from the Spring 2013 collection featuring metallic blue leather, asymmetric front cut, long pointed-toe and sculpted heel.
Jessica Paré is featured in the July 2013 issue of S Moda wearing Christian Dior ankle-strap pumps. These Fall 2013 shoes feature black suede, thin wrap around ankle-strap and 108mm sculpted heel. Sofia Vergara also wore these in Harper’s Bazaar.
The Canadian actress who stars as Megan Draper on ’Mad Men’ posed for the Spanish magazine wearing three different looks including leather & lace. Jessica said this Davidelfin blue number ”Looks like he has designed it for me, fits me like a glove”. It’s from the Spring 2013 collection with a pleated skirt, white collar and currently on sale.
Sofia Vergara is featured in the August 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar wearing Christian Dior heels. These Fall 2013 shoes feature black suede, thin wrap around ankle-strap and sculpted heel. This style is not yet at retail but you can shop current Dior styles at FarFetch and Colette.
She’s gearing up for Season 5 of ‘Modern Family’ and also promoting her new film, ‘Machete Kills’ which premieres this October. Sofia posed for photographer Terry Richardson wearing a red trench also from Dior’s Fall 2013 collection paired with Harry Winston diamond earrings.
