Jennifer Lopez was spotted on the set of ‘American Idol’ Season 13 wearing Ivy KirzhnerPyramid pumps. She’s worn these several times on the show featuring grey snakeskin, 145mm heel and signature hand-enameled cloissoné casted-metal platform. Pyramid is available in several styles including rose gold leather, natural seasnake and neon pink snakeskin at Ivy Kirzhner.
She also wore an H&M white babydoll lace dress with a high neck, sheer long sleeves and scalloped eyelash trim from the Conscious Collection. With the front section of her hair pinned back, Jennifer complemented the look with flawless-looking makeup and shimmery light pink lip.
She also accessorized with bracelets by Chimento Gioiellieri.
Katy Perry wore Christian LouboutinMiss Rigidaine pumps to MOCA’s 35th Anniversary Gala in Los Angeles. They’re from the Spring 2014 collection featuring black patent leather, half d’Orsay design, panels of raspberry PVC and 120mm heel. We’ve also seen these beautiful shoes on Naomie Harris and Cate Blanchett. Miss Rigidaine is available in white patent leather with aquamarine PVC at Christian Louboutin.
Even though she’s known as a quirky fashion risk-taker and has worn outfits inspired from almost every decade, this dress in particular is a perfect fit for her shape, personality and style. Katy posed wearing a long black halterneck Versace frock split on both sides revealing a shorter mini skirt with peekaboo neon yellow lining and a keyhole back.
Lea Michele wore Charlotte OlympiaDolly pumps to the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards held at the USC Galen Center in Los Angeles. They’re from the Encore collection featuring nude-pink suede, almond toe, 145mm heel and 35mm mirrored gold covered island platform. Dolly is available in blush suede at Forward by Elyse Walker, Matches, Ssense and Charlotte Olympia.
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.
She carried a Fan di Fendi Baguette nude patent leather bag and also added a complementary peach parfait mani. A diamond Arrow cuff bracelet and Cat Mask ring by Anita Ko provided the perfect finishing gold touches.
Jayma Mays wore Jimmy ChooAnouk pumps to the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards held at the USC Galen Center in Los Angeles. They feature metallic citrine watersnake and 120mm heel. We’ve also seen these shoes on Shay Mitchell. Anouk is available in metallic claret (on sale!) at Bluefly.
With her signature copper hair full of voluminous texture, she finished her look with a warm coral brown lip and evergreen smokey eye makeup. Other accessories included a Vincent minaudière in sea glass from Rebecca Minkoff ‘s Summer 2013 collection and Coomi gold hoop earrings.
They’ve arrived! Here’s a sneak peek at 13 new styles from Christian Louboutin’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection. This collection is by far the sexiest ever. I hope you’re more than conformable in your current 120mm Pigalle & So Kate’s - M. Louboutin kicked it up a notch this season, 10mm to be exact. The new Allenissima open-toe slingback sandal features 130mm heel (without a platform in sight!).
Another standout design is the Pigalle Follies pump which is covered in beautiful dégradé crystal strass. Many fans have already noticed that they also have a slightly higher cut vamp than the classic Pigalle 120mm pump.
Remember the pointed-toe sculpted wedges that walked the runways at the recent Marchesa Fall 2014 show? They’re named Conquilla and debut in the main collection featuring spicy tiger printed calf hair.

If New York Fashion Week had a line that epitomized romance and luxury, without a doubt it would be Marchesa. Since 2004, Georgina and Keren Craig have been designing and creating some of the most beautiful red carpet looks this side of Valentino. The sumptuous tulle and whimsical lace of Marchesa’s gowns were only complemented by the shoes, designed by none other than Christian Louboutin. From devilishly colored multi-buckle suede ankle booties to dazzling copper hued lacy pumps, as the show progressed the soles only became more enviable. The combination of calf hair and embroidery can only be classified as daring! It’s hard for us to pick a favorite, but we lovedthe concave wedge that – at first glance – made the models look like ballerinas standing en pointe.

At first glance, Ruthie Davis for Duckie Brown sounds like a very peculiar combination. After all, Ruthie Davis has made her name by confronting conventions head on and changing them – her shoes drip with not only femininity, but sassiness. Her brand is all about modernity and romance without fussiness. And Duckie Brown? Duckie Brown is a brand dedicated to dressing men in dapper duds, this season marking the brand’s first foray into womanswear. The result was extraordinarily complementary; Duckie Brown’s menswear aesthetic fit beautifully with the clean, color blocked lines of Ruthie Davis’ playful jewel tone pumps. We can only hope this is the start of a long-standing collaboration.
We are huge fans of Gio Diev’s sensual yet futuristic approach to shoes (hello! We’re still obsessing over his Spring 2014 collection!), so when we heard that he was going to be designing the shoes for Sally LaPointe’s Fall 2014 collection we could hardly contain our excitement. The ankle booties are one of the highlights of the collection, crafted out of supple leather, luxurious snakeskin, exotic stingray, and – just because everyone needs a bit of edge to their wardrobe – phenomenal calf hair. They’re practical, yet elegant. Perfect for adding sophistication to any autumnal look.
There was something decidedly heady about Veronica Beard’s line this season – it could be the way the boho dresses dripped with California cool or the way the jacquard printed matching separates took you back to the best of 70s fashion. A fabulously fashionable collection topped off with sky-high Moiki heels by Rupert Sanderson, who always knows how to make a woman’s choice in footwear the talk of the party. The strappy heels appeared in three variations: not-s-classic black, space-age silver, and color blocked with pink, mustard yellow, and black.

If we could sum up the Fall 2014 collection by Altuzarra, we’d have to put it somewhere between simplicity, luxury, and wardrobe staple. It isn’t surprising that the shoes from Altuzarra’s collection match that “wear me everywhere” vibe, because timelessness with a kick is what Gianvito Rossi specializes in. We love the take on a loafer-pump as well as the boots with cut-out accents. The natural color palette (greys, browns, and blacks) provides maximum accessibility and versatility – we can picture the ankle booties in the office as well as a dinner date with the girls.
Cesare Casadei and Prabal Gurung have been collaborating since the Spring 2013 season – it’s no mystery why they’ve kept the relationship strong: the shoes are consistently divine. This time around, Casadei created gorgeously bejeweled pumps exclusive for Prabal Gurung that perfectly blend Gurung’s tactile and experimental aesthetic with the feminine flair indicative of their brand. The shoes are one part costume jewelry, two parts menswear brogue, and all fierce. Coming in an array of colors, we can picture these statement heels taking the place of baubles any day.
Okay, we have a confession: we can predict the future. We can’t divulge all of the juicy details, but we are willing to tell you one thing – our bank accounts are going to be hurting and our wardrobes will be screaming in joy. Why? Because Sophia Webster’s latest collaboration with J.Crew for their Fall 2014 collection is utter perfection. Beautiful prints, color blocking, strappy pumps, and glittery heels are the star components of the collection. We’re not surprised that J.Crew’s prep-meets-edge aesthetic pairs so beautifully with Sophia Webster’s color, prints, and pizazz style, we just hope that the two fashion powerhouses continue to collaborate for years to come.

Without a doubt, one of the most luxurious and supple collections of New York Fashion Week was brought to us by Jason Wu. Crushed velvet, fur, marled wool, and sequins so subtle that they catch the light like diamonds were only parts of the ingenious line. Jason Wu’s sumptuous collection was topped off with a beautiful t-strap pump, done in a few variations. The classic, wear-me-everywhere heel came in oxblood, mirrored silver, and a patent black (sometimes color blocked all in one style!). We also love the oxford ankle bootie that made an appearance – one part pilgrim, three parts runway heartstopper, it was a show stealer.
Rodarte’s homage to the seventies, complete with Star Wars iconography and drawstring high-waist pants, is polarizing in its unabashed use of glitter and lurex. The kitschy, thrifty vibe was found from the top of the sparkly berets and down to the tips of the models’ feet. Modest buckles and sequined socks abound, the Mulleavy sister’s footwear is as unique as they are. If you’re not into their idiosyncratic reinterpretation of the flatform, they also have a collection of pumps that range from work-ready snakeskin beige to club-ready bejeweled turquoise.
Narciso Rodriguez’ collection was a perfect meld of casual and sophisticated. The looks are slouchy without being sloppy and the overall feel is one of effortless minimalism. Even the footwear appears modest at first glance. However, the initial thought of simplicity is erased upon further inspection; though streamline and modern, the shoes are definitely a step above the rest. Dramatic takes on a d’orsay heel – the thick strap along the ankle is both fabulous and practical – and color blocked booties with supple leather and snake skin have us going back for another look.
Oscar de la Renta certainly knows his audience, creating stellar red carpet ready gowns and suit separates designed to become classics season, but this season left us feeling a bit cold. Luckily, where this season’s wigs were arguably horrible and many of the looks bored on the unfortunate side of matronly, the accessories were full of the spark and verve we’ve come to expect from Oscar de la Renta’s lux designs. Exotic and ornately patterned laser cut leather? Check. Embellished heeled sandals? Check. Feather and bead embroidered platforms? Check, check, check. They’re so classy and so chic, you’ll by opera tickets just to show them off.

Alexander Wang’s utilitarian collection met head on with state-of-the-art techniques (color changing leather? Be still our fluttering hearts); the outdoorsy sentiments were irrevocably high fashion, making it another iconic collection from the flourishing designer. His shoes received the same amazing treatment. The exaggerated height of the over-the-knee boot – done in a gorgeous combination of mid-tone brown and black with a shock of pure white – have a practical vibe that make them beg to be worn during your city’s next Snowmageddeon. Wang also created a peculiar take on the mule, with a thick heel and a very overstated vamp. They might not be for everyone, but man are they cool.
Leave it to Monique Lhuillier to create a show that practically drips with femininity, from the floral embellishments down to the lacy ankle and knee-high boots. We love how, when other designers seem bent on modernizing and streamlining their collections, she remains unafraid to revel in the frivolity. Candy pink sandals embellished with lace? Well, yes, if you insist! Also worth mentioning? The dramatically shaped d’orsay pump, constructed partially out of PVC to hold its theatrical silhouette.
Diane von Fürstenberg’s collection was classy with an edge, filled with pieces that would seamlessly go from day-to-night without so much as a jacket change. However, our favorite part of the collection wasn’t the eclectic prints or sensible totes, but the crazy amazing selection of pumps and wedges. Dramatic suede heeled sandals were accented with gold leather piping, mesh was embellished with darling suede hearts that scream “don’t just wear me on Valentine’s Day, wear me everywhere!” and modern looking wedges that were completed by a stellar mirrored gold heel. Black, gold, and red is a timeless combination – Diane von Fürstenberg just gave it a kick of sass.
The sensible schoolgirl aesthetic of Marissa Webb’s collection was given a much needed dose of attitude via kickass footwear. High stilettos with snaking laces that would make Roberto Cavalli proud and gorgeous blocky ankle booties might seem dour in color, but are jam packed with attitude. Suddenly, tweed doesn’t seem so prim and proper!

Jerome C Rousseau’s work with Lela Rose this season marks his very first – we know, it’s hard to believe that he’s not on every NYC designer’s speed dial! – runway collaboration and to soaring success. The eclectic vibe of Rousseau’s shoes perfectly matched the quirky edge that Lela Rose used in her collection (think: feathers, gem embellishments, sequins, and ombre hues). Though we love the metallic ombre glitter booties and his tell-tale thorny heel, our favorite shoe from this collaboration is the mesh peep-toe bootie. Swoon!
Katya Leonovich’s Fall 2014 collection was all about futuristic, science fiction designs with a very seductive kick. Metallic, semi-sheer dresses and oblong silhouettes were complimented by sleek soles from Tania Spinelli. We love the amazing selection of boots she provided, thigh-high to ankle, lush suede to shiny gunmetal – we almost paid more attention to them than the line of clothes (woops!). But, we’re not surprised that we love the shoe selection; when Tania Spinelli is doing the designing, you know the product will be amazing.
Jennifer Hudson wore Christian LouboutinPigalle pumps to the 2014 Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala and Salute to Industry Icons held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. They feature neptune glitter, blue grosgrain trim and 120mm heel (100mm pictured above). Pigalle is available in antique silver glitter with a 100mm heel at Barneys.
Her hair & makeup looked flawless and I love the classic red lip. Jennifer accessorized with Jack Vartanian jewelry including a Gala ring and diamond ear cuff. She also carried a Rodo orange leather clutch with mirrored gold sculpted leather sides.
Her beautiful Roland Mouret Pre-Fall 2014 Cimex black strapless gown with flocked metallic sparkle circles throughout, signature folded pleats and precise raised seams glistened on stage.
Sandra’s hair was styled in a side-swept messy chignon before finishing with a falu red lip and merlot nails. She also accessorized with a Paint Box clutch by Roger Vivier and Jacquie Aiche assorted diamond bezel ear cuff.
Amy Adams wore Jimmy ChooVibe peep-toe pumps to the 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. They’re from the Award Season collection and a red carpet favorite featuring mirrored gunmetal leather and 145mm heel. This style is currently not available but you can find the latest cruise & spring styles at Jimmy Choo and Jimmy Choo UK.
She was another best dressed along with Lupita wearing a beautiful Antonio Berardi blue iris silk crepe dress with a cutout one-shoulder silhouette, knee-high front slit, sweeping train and crystal studded thin belt.
Here’s a closer look at Amy’s retro Hollywood-inspired rolled updo. She also carried a Salvatore Ferragamo dark metallic metallic leather clutch and added another metallic accent with pewter nails.
She finished her look with Cartier jewelry from the Tutti Frutti collection including a sapphires, rubies & emerald plus matching earrings.
