Jerome-C-Roussea-Jude-embellished-peep-toe-bootieWhen you think of Jerome C. Rousseau’s collections, the mental images you conjure should be as vibrant as they are intriguing and as bizarre as they are gorgeous. Remember his Fall 2013 collection? Studs, color blocking, glitter, floral velvet, and bondage straps (sometimes all working simultaneously!) elevated his ultra-high heels to new, quirky heights. However, with new seasons come new inspirations, and we’re very excited to report that the Spring 2014 line from Monsieur Rousseau is a veritable Technicolor wonderland.

Whether you’re into cork-infused pumps, perforated suede, strappy snakeskin, or – yes, you’re reading this right – glittery python, Rousseau has your feet covered and all done with his signature architectural flair.

The crowning jewel of the collection is the embellished bootie – the base of which is his phenomenal Juda model in gorgeous green leather (the color is somewhere between minty mojito and saturated sage) with lemon yellow leather mesh. From the supple leather base, over 7000 beads are carefully hand-applied by Los Angeles artist Emily J. Snyder, including coral, freshwater pearls, and vintage Czech crystal. The booties mirror Emily Snyder’s aesthetic perfectly, with each vibrant clusters of beads combining to create a sole-ful rainbow that will never fail to grab attention.

If you want in on the beaded Juda fun but don’t want to wait 60-75 days for the custom application (or maybe you’re just afraid of a wayward snag hitting your beautiful new booties), the open-toed shoe also comes in a printed silk design complemented by metallic golden leather. Juda is one of Rousseau’s design staples and available in several other stellar designs, like woven leather, animal printed calf hair, and even a leather laser-cut rose motif.

As if the collection couldn’t get better, he has also released a line of clutches and handbags that mirror the themes of his shoes. It’s time to retire your well-worn clutch and invest in one of his statement making minaudières!

Oscar-Tiye-Zoe-rose-gold-sandal-Spring-2014When we covered the amazingly creative new luxury accessories label Oscar Tiye back in November, it was hard to form coherent sentences through our passionate gushing about the brand and their unique Fall 2013 collection. We are happy to report that their Spring 2014 collection meets the quality of the last one and amplifies it, creating a stronger and larger line that is so jam packed with stellar designs, you are going to start apologizing to your credit card now.

We’re seeing a lot of the gorgeous shapes featured in the Fall 2013 collection return in an array of warm weather colors and must-have-it-now variations. D’orsay iterations that put the wow in wow factor, fabulous cut out pumps that can seamlessly transition throughout the year, and an intriguing laser cut keyhole motif that is incorporated into sandals, sky-high pumps, and killer hybrid gladiator boots are all recognizable highlights. Our favorite comeback kid? The scarab beetle wings that echo the emblem of the brand – specifically, if we don’t get a pair of those scarab beetle winged sandals, we’re not sure if Oscar-Tiye-bootwe’re going to make it to their next fall collection.

However wonderful those old themes are (and they truly are unique in the best way), with every new collection comes new themes. Gorgeous color blocking collides with fringes and a stellar black and white geometric motif, twining leather straps on ankle sandals add a hard edge to a classic design, and ornate interlocking leather creates a knot embellishment on sandals. Alongside the scarab wings are shoes that incorporate their scarab insignia in a laser cut leather motif, often acting as the front of a sandal or flashy pump.

The Egyptian symbolism continues with the inimitable elongated neck of the ibis that serves as inspiration for a stunning lace up sandal booty, done in shocking yellow, vibrant blue, and luscious rose gold. Whether you’re a fan of fabulous flats or sky high statement heels, there is a pair of shoes out there just perfect for your shoedrobe.

With us being knee deep in red carpet season and the Academy Awards just around the corner, it’s time to rock your own Oscars.

1014285_10151618249321865_1346496158_nGimme! Gimme! Gimme! I adore this Christian Louboutin collection and it’s already celebrity candy. Kerry Washington & Zoe Saldana have worn new studded cap-toe styles and Miley Cyrus recently performed in the Monicarina thigh-high boots.

Red sole fans have learned to expect a playful and fantastically kooky collection debut. This season, beautiful window displays inspired by Ancient Egypt were presented in boutiques around the globe.

The signature Pigalle will always be my first classic stiletto love but there’s a new lust-worthy sleek pointed-toe pump, the So Kate (yes, Moss). Remember the Décolleté 100 pump which debuted in Fall ’12 collection? So Kate has the same shape featuring a 120mm heel. Whenever & wherever you find this pump, snatch it up.

M.Louboutin’s t-straps are so wickedly sexy and I’m coveting several new styles including the Très CroiseT-Slick and Lagoula. Another fly-off-the-shelf design is the Body Strass crystal-embellished mesh pump.

If you’re heart isn’t palpitating yet, meet the Mado – holy boot, enough said.

Giuseppe-Zanotti-Fall-2013-Bootie-Zendaya-Coleman

Zendaya Coleman was spotted wearing Giuseppe Zanotti open-toe booties while out in NYC. These heels are from the new Fall 2013 collection featuring purple suede, black suede cone-shaped heel and gold zip. They’re available online in olive at Nordstrom or purple/black at Giuseppe Zanotti.

The Disney starlet recently placed second on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and has also just announced a new single & album release date. She looked cute wearing a marigold belted Prada swing dress with her hair styled in a messy oversized bun.

Michael-Kors-Emma-Pre-Fall-2013-booties

Gwyneth Paltrow wore Michael Kors Emma open-toe booties to a signing for her latest book, ‘It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes that Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great’ in LA. Emma is from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection featuring black leather, buckled ankle-strap, side-zip closure and pin stiletto heel.

I love this entire look including her Isabel Marant Fall 2013 mini dress paired with a polka dot sash. The other accessories were kept to a minimum – she only added a dark red pedi and light, natural-looking makeup.

Zoe Saldana also wore these booties to Michael Kors Fall 2013 show.

Check out more shoes spotted on Gwyneth.
