I’ve already expressed my love for these Rupert Sanderson for Antonio Berardi sandals time & time again but now they’re finally on my feet! Sanderson’s single sole Elba pump was the celebrity shoe of 2013 and I truly admire his clean & contemporary design aesthetic. He really outdid himself with this scrumptious Berardi spring collection & his footwear reign is bound to continue – have you seen the following Fall ’14 collaboration?!


I love the entire collection but my favorite style is the tricolor sandal in yummy pink, glossy apricot & mirrored rose gold leather. Although their official name is Tallyho, I’ve nicknamed them Saturn because of all the “rings” wrapped around my feet.



I took my usual sandal size, 37 and I’m super happy with the fit. It’s a whole lotta shoe with all of the straps but they’re surprisingly easy to put on. You can see from the photos below they have a slip-on elastic strap and looped velcro ankle-strap. They also feature a metallic gold covered heel breast, 110mm/4.3″ heel and almond-shaped toe.




You can find the style I’m wearing at Rupert Sanderson, LuisaViaRoma, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale’s. Tallyho is available in tan/red or black at Rupert Sanderson, ShoeScribe and Moda Operandi. You can also find the Corona in rose gold at ShoeScribe and Département du Luxe.

They’re my perfect spring sandal and I plan on wearing them everywhere until the end of summer.

Lupita Nyong’o wore Prada d’Orsay ankle-strap platform sandals to the 2014 Academy Awards. Here’s a closer look at her shoes. They’re from the Pre-Spring 2014 collection and custom dyed in blue satin to match her gown. You can find them in black suede & mirrored silver leather at Barneys and Saks Fifth Avenue.

After telling the press she tried on over 70 gowns and that her choice was a minimalistic with clean lines, I figured we would see her in Calvin Klein Collection. Lupita continued her red carpet reign and arrived wearing a custom Prada light blue silk georgette soleil v-cut gown which was the perfect award season “finale” gown.

Fred Leighton provided the jewels including a diamond head band, gold wrap cuff bracelet and diamond cluster earrings. She also finished her look with a warm pink rose lip and Prada satin clutch.
