Award 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.
Freida Pinto wore Miu Miu pumps to the Miu Miu Women’s Tales Talks at 2013 Venice Film Festival. These heels feature a round toe, tan patent leather and Swarovski crystal encrusted 60mm heel. They’re available in tan & black patent leather at Miu Miu.
For the second year Miu Miu presented a series of short films made by world-famous women filmmakers.

Her retro-inspired outfit was finished with Miu Miu accessories including round tortoise acetate sunglasses and glazed grey leather Vitello Lux Large Bow bag.

Fergie wore Valentino Rockstud slingback pumps to the 2013 Life Ball in Austria. These shoes feature a camouflage Swarovski crystal design and gold-tone pyramid studs. They’re available online at FarFetch, Nordstrom & FarFetch.
It’s become quite rare that we ever spot her not wearing a shoe from her own footwear brand, Fergie. This evening she opted to pair a designer pump with her Tom Ford Spring 2013 black taffeta gown. The pregnant star also accessorized with a dark berry lip and carried a Valentino Va Va Voom Noir patent leather clutch.
