I wish Shakira had vamped up the look, similarly to the model, by styling the dress with a sleek ponytail and smoldering smokey eye makeup. Instead, she went au naturel opting for only a touch of mascara and subtle blush lip.

It’s hard to sum up Tabitha Simmons in a nutshell. In her youth, she was a stellar fashion model that successfully transformed her career into a must-have stylist, styling runway shows, lookbooks, and editorials for massive names such as American Vogue, Rag & Bone, Alexander McQueen and Dolce & Gabbana. Her pleasant demeanor and behind-the-fashion-scene acumen sent her career on a sky-high trajectory but Tabitha didn’t stop there. Her voracious appetite to try new things and artistic eye led her to pick up another avenue in the fashion industry: shoe design. Naturally, she and her brand have flourished. With that in mind, if we were to accurately describe her in three words, it’d probably be: Fashion’s Wonder Woman.
Since starting her brand in 2009, Tabitha’s footwear has been widely and warmly accepted by the fashion industry. Her Spring 2014 collection is as strong and lush as we’ve come to expect from Tabitha’s aesthetic, which is to say: everything we could ever want and more. Unmistakably feminine, confidently daring, it’s hard to pick a favorite.
The silhouettes range from sleek to quirky, strappy to minimalistic - giving plenty of options for any walk of life. We love how she’s not afraid to play around with heavier shapes and despite the season, even adding in a signature calf hair boot. Sugary sweet themes, such as thin baby blue stripes or candy colored glitter, are balanced out by the undoubtedly dramatic – we’re talking snakeskin, perforated eyelet leather, and crystal covered bows.
We particularly gravitate to the Bailey fullycrystal embellished sandal and the handful of designs that are printed with colorful butterfly designs on woven silk. They’re the perfect blend of classic and sass which make for the ultimate statement shoe.
Though the heels are high and the impact is bold, Tabitha never designs without comfort in mind. She understands the daily routine of a woman on the go and knows the importance of wearability, no matter the style or height. After all, we find it hard to believe that Tabitha herself is in one place at one time for more than five minutes – why shouldn’t style travel alongside comfort? We can’t ask for a collection of shoes more perfect than hers.

She was pretty in azalea pink wearing a beautiful Elie Saab sleeveless lace cocktail dress with a scalloped eyelash hem plus silk georgette straps & corset-like trim from the Spring 2014 collection.
Lea’s hair & makeup, particularly the wispy faux bob and hot pink lip looks a little forced but overall it’s a playful, fun look – and perfect for the Nickelodeon orange carpet.

Nicholas Kirkwood is a shooting star in the high fashion footwear world and soaring ever higher – if you’re not familiar with his eponymous brand, chances are you know and lust after his footwear designs for Peter Pilotto, Roksanda Ilincic, Erdem, Fendi, Rodarte, and Pollini. Unsurprisingly, the brand has jumped up on the “Must Have, Must Love” list after LVMH purchased a majority stake in the company last year, reflected in the skyrocketing sales and sudden attention from acclaimed stylists. His fabulous shoes appear on the red carpet regularly, donned by Hollywood starlets and certified celebrities alike; from Kiernan Shipka to Cate Blanchett, from Lupita Nyong’o to Saoirse Ronan, it wouldn’t be a star studded sartorial affair without a pair of Kirkwood’s not-quite-classic heels making an appearance.
A majority of the shoes are designed in a stunning leather filigree of ornate laser cut leather that really adds a punch of glamour and edge to the collection. Stating that he was inspired by the luxurious history of Morocco, those laser cut designs channel hand-painted tiles and motifs. Secondarily, Kirkwood took inspiration from one of the hottest trends in high fashion right now: sportswear. When talking to Nordstrom about the strong influence of Technicolor fabric and lace-up straps he stated, “there’s a sporty ’70s vibe that features high-tech low soles.”
The collection also plays with texture such as woven silk in neon green, brightly dyed raffia, and elaborate jacquards contrasted against metallic snakeskin. Heels vary in shape from streamline to sleek, chunky to jagged – some of the heels even include signature hidden details, like a pearl nesting under the heel or a unique triangle silhouette. If that’s the way Nicholas Kirkwood views the spring and summer season, we definitely can’t complain! It’s a festive collection that makes a statement in every sole.
If you want a Kirkwood pump that is safe to wear in an office setting – because life is sadly not all soirées and chic brunches – he’s got you covered! His trademark metallic pinheel pump makes an appearance in luscious colors such as emerald, bronze, and blazing red; those dynamic colors will provide versatility year ‘round, whether paired with a summer dress or woolen slacks. We can’t deny the appeal of a perfect heel that can take you from day-to-night with ease.
For years Nicholas Kirkwood has been building an impressive repertoire of fashion awards, we’re absolutely stoked that he’s gaining the popularity and recognition that he deserves. We can’t wait to see where he takes his flourishing label next!
