Kalpa is available in gold snakeskin at The Outnet or black suede with gold crystals at Jimmy Choo UK.

I wasn’t crazy about her Golden Globes dress but Sandra made a quick red carpet comeback. She was easily another best dressed of the night wearing wearing this beautiful custom Lanvin berry ruffle tiered strapless gown with a raw hem.

Sandra also added a Lanvin crystal starburst Blanche belt and complementary Fred Leighton antique diamond earrings. I love that her hair wasn’t overworked and left worn down in a sleek center-part. She finished her look with a black satin Pilgrim Mini clutch by Roger Vivier.

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.
