Kim Kardashian was spotted outside ‘Good Morning America’ in NYC wearing Christian Louboutin Un Bout PVC ankle-strap pumps. Un Bout first debuted in the Spring 2012 collection and Kim ordered them in nude patent leather plus a few other colors. You can shop the latest Spring 2013 styles online at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Christian Louboutin US.

I think this powder pink silk chiffon Valentino sheer blouse embellished with floral lace panels paired with a Ferragamo skirt is one of her better recent “maternity” looks.

She was on the morning show promoting her latest film, Tyler Perry’s ‘Temptation’, where she plays a supporting role as a romantically-challenged marriage counselor.

Kourtney Kardashian was spotted wearing Tom Ford lace-up sandals while out in LA. These shoes are from the Spring 2013 collection featuring a tapered gold toe, leather laces and gold hardware. They’re available online at Neiman Marcus.

Kourtney was filming ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ wearing a striped short suit by BCBG and white blouse by Cameo. She accessorized with Dita Magnifique sunglasses, a vintage Chanel pendant and carried a light blue Trio bag by Céline.

Rihanna and Jada Pinkett-Smith have also worn this strappy sandal.

Amy Adams wore Casadei platform sandals to the 2013 BAFTA Awards held in London. Here’a better photo of her shoes. These sandals are from the Spring 2013 collection featuring light gold satin, statement ‘bridge’ platform with a buckle-fastening ankle strap. They’re available online in red satin at The Corner and several styles at Casadei.

You can always count on Amy to dress for the occasion. For this red carpet Amy chose an exquisite Elie Saab Haute Couture black lace gown with an embroidered bodice and waist with high slit detail. She also accessorized with Katharina pink diamond drop earrings and Vagabonde diamond ring by Fabergé.

Saint Laurent Paris pump | 4.5 inch heel | available online at Ssense for $1075.00

The Spring 2013 collection by Hedi Slimane is finally hitting stores and there are many new shoe styles I love including this triple-strap pump. They feature black patent leather, pointed-toe, three adjustable ankle-straps and black sole.

It’s only available in whole sizes and you can find it in black suede (pictured below) with metallic gold straps for $917 at Matches



I started collecting these images weeks ago and wanted to share some major shoe eye candy just in time for the new year. Most of these styles aren’t available yet, however, there are a few available for pre-order.

I love this pink sandal by Brian Atwood and the Sophia Webster bootie is delightful!

Christian Louboutin has been unveiling the latest spring collection a little differently this season. Instead of having the usual countdown and hosting an interactive look book on his web site, they’re slowly releasing new designs through the e-boutique.

The spring styles are always brighter, more playful and I think this is one of the more wearable collections. It’s a mix of media madness (a trend in shoes this season) balanced out with several feminine, classic designs (such as the V-Neck, Flo).

We’ve already seen Jessica Alba wear the June slingback, Gemma Arterton in the Fifi Spikes and Jessica Biel wore the V-Neck in ELLE.

I like the Pigalle stripes, colorful Diptic bootie and nude Fifi Spikes.

Jessica Alba wore Giuseppe Zanotti sandals to Spike TV’s 2012 Video Game Awards. These shoes are from the Spring 2013 collection featuring black suede, cut-out design and back-zip closure. They’re available online for pre-order at Giuseppe Zanotti and in orange suede at LuisaViaRoma.

Jessica wore a stretch crepe jersey dress with leather panel detail by one of her favorite designers, Narciso Rodriguez . She also accessorized with a triple spike diamond ring by Ileana Makri, bright orange lip and carried a Christian Louboutin Miss Loubi spiked patent-leather clutch.

Shoe highlights from Paris Fashion Week Spring 2013:

Anthony Vaccarello
I absolutely support this Giuseppe Zanotti and Anthony Vaccarello team. Last season (this fall) we saw the first collaborative collection and you can find one of the styles at Colette right now, already sold out in my size :(.

I would wear all of these spring sandals! Each design has different sized straps and textures. Many feature leather, patent leather, small nylon cords, metal rings and back-zip. It’s easily one of my favorite shoe collections…now I’m debating which one I like more, Casadei for Prabal Gurung or these, that’s a tough one.

Leather derby shoes elevated with a parallelogram-shaped chunky metal heel. Blogger Rumi Neely tweeted: “Shoes so heavy you can’t really casually swing your feet = Balenciaga Derby”, that basically sums it up.

It was definitely a classic shoe collection and I was let down. I guess I was expecting more as the last two seasons were full of embellished, over-the-top, beautiful heels. The only shoe that was unique from the other designs was from look 37 featuring a diamond cage cut-out design.

Nina Ricci
High-heel sandals filled the runway with the exception of one patent leather bootie seen at the beginning of the show. These heels feature a strap across the toe, sculpted heel and an edge/border along the toe line. It’s the same technique we’ve seen before from Maison Martin Margiela.

Lanvin collection included mainly pumps with one sandal & boot. The pumps feature a hidden platform, skinny ankle-strap, iridescent snakeskin, western-inspired stitching, pointed-toe and tapered heel. Both of my favorite styles were the two western designs, especially the pump.

Christian Dior
These shoes have the same curved heel that we saw in Nina Ricci’s show. Each style features between 2-4 different kinds of textures including a small PVC insert and metallic patent leather strap. My favorite design was the ankle-strap sandal with iridescent snakeskin, grey snakeskin and pink metallic patent leather strap.

Isabel Marant
These sandals feature distressed leather, studs and a stacked wooden heel. I prefer the shoes from the last two seasons (Fall 2012 & Spring 2012) however the designs are nice and I know we will see these shoes everywhere.

I’ve already expressed my distaste for the continuing use of PVC in the Milan Fashion Week post and we’re seeing more & more of it (even at Chanel too). I don’t find these sandals attractive and dislike how they make the foot look; am I missing something?!

Vivienne Westwood




So far, Céline wins the award for having the most disappointing shoe collection. I was excited since many other collections included ankle-strap sandals. I thought there was a chance we may see something like these again…I was very wrong. Instead, we saw pointed-toe pumps completely covered in mink and faux pedicure heels.

I know I’ve been going on PVC rant however I do like how Valentino embellished these shoes – with lucite pyramid studs! The popular Rockstud pointed-toe slingback had a facelift and now features plastic straps and buckles. I definitely see the shorter heels perfect for Elle Fanning & Taylor Swift.

Saint Laurent
These remind me of Donna Karan’s Fall 2012 shoe collection. There were several Mary Jane styles and a few designs featured a black & gold python cap-toe.

Alexander McQueen
When I was on a documentary film kick last year I watched several on bees and they’re truly fascinating! This collection is beautiful…if only beekeeper suits were this cute. Some of these shoes feature a slip stitch honeycomb knit upper with patent leather and others are completely patent leather. All of the shoes have a metallic gold platform with a sculpted lucite wedge filled with muti-sized crystals.

Nicole-Kidman-Christian Louboutin Vampanodo sandals-Emmy-Awards

Nicole Kidman wore Christian Louboutin Vampanodo sandals to the 2012 Emmy Awards. These heels are from the Fall 2012 collection featuring a teal satin bow. You can find the Vampanodo online in teal & black at Christian Louboutin US and with a platform in purple satin at Neiman Marcus & Bergdorf Goodman.

She’s also wearing a blue sequin embroidered Antonio Berardi dress with Fred Leighton earrings. I like the shoes and dress separately but not together. I prefer a more blue sandal, something like these Manolo Blahnik sandals. Check out more shoes spotted at the Emmys.
