Emma Watson is featured in the May 2013 issue of GQ UK wearing Casadei platform booties. These heels are from the Fall 2012 collection featuring black leather, hidden platform, elastic sides and neon green/yellow cap-toe. They’re available online (on sale!) at FarFetch.
She’s emulating her character Nikki in ‘The Bling Ring’ (in theaters this summer) wearing a yellow sequin covered strapless mini dress, iridescent cuff and silver belt, all by Blumarine. Other accessories included Neon Pink Creole Style earrings by Noir Jewelry and Solange Azagury-Partridge Love necklace.
Rihanna was spotted wearing Manolo BlahnikChaos black leather sandals while at a Lakers game in LA. These heels are from the Fall 2012 collection featuring a small strap across the toe and ankle. Chaos is available online with a 4.25″ heel in blue at Nordstrom and with a 4″ heel in black, gold, silver & mint green at Barneys.
She attended the game wearing a Trapstar bomber jacket, black crop top and black skinny jeans. Rihanna also accessorized with two gold ankle bracelets and gold choker necklace by Christian Lacroix - which she first wore to the ‘Nude by Rihanna’ launch earlier this month.
I wasn’t too excited about the white lace dress Megan wore to an event last week however Roland Mouret, you do wonders! This long sleeve dress has the perfect neckline and ruching in all the right places.

These pumps have just the right amount of glitter. They’re from the Fall 2012 collection featuring a d’Orsay design, purple patent leather, almond shaped toe, thin yellow heel and glitter-embellished angled platform.
Chloë Moretz was spotted wearing Chanel embellished booties after the Chanel: The Little Black Jacket private exhibition in London. I’m pretty sure Chloë got the best boots from the collection! They’re from the Fall 2012 collection featuring teal leather with an ombré-effect, asymmetrical cut-out design and crystallized lucite heel.
Chloë wore a navy tweed Chanel jacket with bell sleeves, leather leggings and carried a small dark teal bag, also by Chanel. The jacket was actually my least favorite part of her outfit…however, I want those shoes & bag! This event featured the iconic Chanel jacket through 113 photographs shot by Karl Lagerfeld. Check out more shoes spotted on Chloë.

5 reasons why Manolo Blahnik is having a fantastic fall:
1. Rihanna can’t get enough of his shoes, she’s worn the Chaos sandal & BB Strap pump several times. 2. A new Manolo Blahnik boutique just opened up in Harrods. A private opening celebration was held during London Fashion Week. Guests included Olivia Palermo who wore my favorite design this season, the Laura sandal. 3. The BB pump is having another moment and was worn by Victoria Beckham at the Olympia Closing Ceremony. 4. Blahnik collaborated with a total of 15 designers during the New York Fashion Week, Spring 2013. 5. Emma Watson wore the Raviota pump in the October 2012 issue of Glamour Magazine.
Here’s a look at some of the Fall 2012 collection (names included!). My favorite three styles are BB strap, Laura and Gualeguay. By the way, Manolo Blahnik is now on Twitter and Facebook!

Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2012 shoe collection is mammoth. I like to publish the collections when you can start purchasing the styles online and several are now available.
The sculpted ‘no heels’ are obviously a stand out but in my opinion, overpriced. So far only one of these designs has appeared online at Neiman Marcus, priced at $6,395. The sculpted boot, featuring black leather & pink mink is priced at $7,434, which you can request availability info at Shoebaloo.
There are many different themes and embellishment so I tried to group the styles together. Of course we see the signature skull pumps featuring a mohawk this season and there’s also floral blooms made of organza, white velvet embroidery, flower-inspired leather pom-poms, fur, ostrich feather and my favorite, big bows!

This is the second season Natalia Vodianova has been the face of Weitzman’s campaign and the ads are stunning! There are many craveable fall/winter boots. My top three favorite styles are the Backflip bootie, Spats boot and Closecall boot.
The collection is quite large so I’ve featured some designs from their fall look book. Visit Stuart Weitzman’s web site to see more styles.
In addition, they’ve also launched their second Young Hollywood Cares Collection to help raise money for ovarian cancer. Brooklyn Decker, Julianne Hough, Nikki Reed, AnnaSophia Robb and Chloë Grace Moretz worked with Stuart to each co-design a footwear style. Proceeds will benefit Dr. Marsha A. Moses’ pioneering research in ovarian cancer.
This season they’ve also debuted a new ‘Walking After Midnight’ film series directed by James Franco featuring Petra Nemcova. It shows a young woman on a midnight fantasy stroll on the streets on NYC wearing one of my favorite styles, the Backflip bootie! This film captures the attributes of the Stuart Weitzman woman; independent, confident, sexy and playful in a visually seductive and intriguing way.
This is the first episode and the next three episodes will be released every “Weitzman Wednesday”. The entire film will go live on October 26th.
Remember Abby? She’s my sister/assistant extraordinaire and works with me on the web site. As you can imagine her love for designer shoes has now hit a new level especially since she writes about them 7 days a week. She also has this little adorable 5 month old monster and has to keep up with him.
Check out her new beautiful red leopard Backflip boots! They’re the perfect manageable height for her featuring a 3.25″ heel, red leopard printed calf hair, engraved metal plated heel, suede tassels and side zipper. These boots run true to size and have a tapered/pointed toe.
