Salma Hayek attended the Stella McCartney’s Christmas Lights Switch On at her store in London wearing leather pointed-toe pumps from Stella McCartney’s Fall 2013 collection. These heels feature synthetic black leather, asymmetric strap and tapered 100mm tortoise shell heel. They’re available at Barneys.
She left the event wearing a Stella McCartney pale lemon wool blend coat with two front flap pockets and seam detailing from the Resort 2014 collection. Salma also wore her favorite – a LBD, paired with a black leopard-print merino wool scarf and black stockings.
The largest, jam-packed fashion week of them all – Paris!
Here are my thoughts, presented as mini awards: *I love the design but they might kill my feet…………Balenciaga I love the look of these sleek pointed-toe d’Orsay pumps but the strap between the toes is so skinny and looks rather uncomfortable.
*The shoe lover’s dream collection…………from head-to-toe infact, Oh, Dior! What a beautiful collection featuring Andy Warhol’s shoe sketches on dresses, clutches and bags:
Remember these pathetic Warhol shoe cookies I made 3 years ago? I revisited the post and found this truism, “Fantasy and clothes go together a lot.”
*Unexpected & interesting…………Givenchy These eye-catching striped boots combined multiple types of snakeskin (I count 3). They reach the mid-calf with a bulbous toe and short curved heel.
*I’ll pass on…………the tractor soles at Stella McCartney McCartney’s fall shoe collection is completely two-faced! A majority of the runway looks were worn with loafers & boots accented propped up on giant tractor soles. Towards the end of the show however, (thankfully) several feminine sculpted wooden wedges made their debut.
*I surprisingly liked & they’re wearable…………Louis Vuitton These ankle-strap platform sandals are wearable and cute. Most styles featured antique-looking smooth leather and there were also two designs covered with feathers.
Stella McCartney wore Stella McCartney platform boots to host the annual switch on of the Christmas lights outside her store in London. These shoes are from the Fall 2012 collection featuring croc-effect faux leather and white rubber platform. They’re available online (on sale!) at FarFetch and Net-A-Porter.
She also wore a multi stretch tweed skirt suit, also from the fall collection. You can find her tailored peplum jacket and tulip-shape skirt on sale at Neiman Marcus. She also added black stocking and carried a chain-embellished clutch.
Teresa Palmer wore Stella McCartneyScott platform pumps to the 2013 Miss Golden Globe Awards in LA hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and InStyle. These pumps are from the Fall 2012 collection collection featuring black faux-leather and white rubber platform. They’re available online (on sale!) at Barneys. They’re also available in mock croc at Saks Fifth Avenue, FarFetch, Shopsavannahs and Stella McCartney.
She wore a white scalloped dress also by Stella McCartney from the Resort 2013 collection. Teresa carried a black & white spotted clutch and added a colorful cranberry lip. I find this look barely memorable and boring compared to several other guests’ outfits including Diane Kruger and Lea Michele.

These slip-on shoes are from the Fall 2012 collection featuring black faux leather, contrasting thick white rubber platform and oversized gold-tone buckle detail. Harrods is the only retailer I’ve found who carries this buckled style. Half sizes are available.

Stella looked beautiful wearing a grey, cobalt and black dress from her Fall 2012 collection. It has stretch crepe panels and flounced skirt which you can find online at Browns.
This week I found quite the variety of new Fall 2012 arrivals at FarFetch. The Stella McCartney glitter pumps are very cute and feature a black faux-suede peaked panel at the front. Balenciaga continues their signature glove sandal/bootie in a brown & white zebra print pony hair.
