Anyone else’s jaw just drop? Rene’s son Edoardo has carried over the rich heritage of the family brand continuing to create truly beautiful shoes marrying Italian craftsmanship with couture. If you think of Caovilla shoes you immediately think of elegant crystal statement pieces! They continue to create the ultimate princess designs which have proved a perfect match for red carpet regulars including Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Garner.

This standout style features a gladiator-inspired cage design in black suede with silver Swarovski crystal covered side panels, corset lace-up front and long wrap-around suede laces. Half sizes are available.

Sarah Jessica Parker wore René Caovilla embellished pumps to the 2014 amfAR Inspiration Gala New York held at The Plaza Hotel. Here’s a closer look at her shoes. They’re from the Fall 2014 collection featuring black leather embellished with violet and emerald Swarovski crystals. Until this style hits retails you can find the latest styles at ShoeScribe, The Corner and Neiman Marcus.

In true SJP form, she arrived wearing a beautiful expectedly unexpected long ivory silk chiffon dress in a pastel bonbon print with draped off-the-shoulder sleeves by Schiaparelli from the Spring 2014 Haute Couture collection.

She also accessorized with what looks like every favorite piece of jewelry she owns including a Baby Heart Choker necklace by Vale, Fred Leighton ring & Eddie Borgo chain necklace. Although I’m not crazy about the heaps of jewelry, I love her softly textured locks.
