Jennifer Lawrence wore Tom Ford sandals to the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. They’re from the Spring 2014 collection featuring black suede, high curved sides , thin ankle-strap and 120mm mirrored silver leather covered heel. You can pre-order select new styles at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
After fulfilling her Dior duties (she’s the face of the fashion house for three more years!) Jennifer was ready to party wearing a Tom Ford mirrored crystal mosaic long sleeve mini dress with a black sheer underlay and mesh back from the Spring 2014 collection.
Her blonde coif was swept back and she complemented the look with a glossy pink nude lip plus kohl-rimmed eyes. Here’s a closer look at the Neil Lane three colored diamond ring (worth $1 million) which she kept on from her earlier red carpet appearance.
Remember when we covered the best shoes from New York Fashion Week? Well, we’ve abandoned the states and headed to London to gander at the most fabulous footwear from across the pond. They’re funky and kooky – just how we like our London looks!.
We love Matthew Williamson’s unabashed adoration of sparkly, glittery things and vivid bursts of colors. This time around, he toned down his patterns and mixed boho with business…assuming your business meetings are conducted in Studio 54. The footwear paid homage to the theme, being both eye-catching and the direct opposite of demure. Sky high and imposing, the ankle booties come in black satin, banana yellow, Beetlejuice stripes, and shocking glitter. We want to live in a world where these are workplace appropriate.
The boots Joanne Stoker designed for Eudon Choi are definitely one of a kind. With schoolgirl plaids, a red camouflage motif, and cobalt blues being stars of the collection, Eudon Choi’s presentation is eclectic and modern. Polka dots and brown calf hair, zebra stripes with electric pink – all topped off with contrasting tassels. Did the funky shoes match the futuristic air of the collection? Well, we’re not so sure. However, they certainly make a statement.
Michael van der Ham is known for colors and appliqués and this line took us back to Mod style sensibilities. Bright citrus colors, vibrant pinks, and punches of blues make every look eye-catching. The shoes were no different, with as many as five colors appearing on one color-blocked thick heeled take on the loafer curated by Christian Louboutin. Think of it this way: the heels are a fail-safe for every outfit. With so many colors to choose from, you can’t go wrong!
In keeping with the unique, nearly-random compilation of colors and textures found in Jonathan Saunders’ Fall 2014 collection, the footwear Christian Louboutin designed for the line blend wow-factor with classicality, glitter with smooth and supple leather. Our favorite? The lace-up ankle booty with a shining, glittering panel. These shoes remind us that everyone needs a bit of sparkle in their life.
Todd Lynn’s line might be known for blending masculine and feminine themes, but there is no doubt that the footwear – designed by Christian Louboutin – are all sex appeal. The billowing leather, snake skin, and suede is confined by an edgy wrap-around strap. The muted colors are offset by Louboutin’s iconic red sole.
Mosaic patterns, Byzantine influence, and Art Nouveau floral prints were all part of Temperley London’s eclectic and beautiful collection. The shoes themselves – designed by Shoerazzi fave Charlotte Olympia – were relatively basic, save for a color blocked trompe l’oeil ankle bootie. We also love the geometric shape of the suede and leather pump – it’s a classic shoe that will work well for a variety of events.
Antonio Berardi’s latest line was swimming in varying themes. Sculptural tailoring, hand-painted chain embroidery, lamé, flannel – and those are just a few ideas and textures he played with. Still, it managed to encapsulate the powerful sex appeal he’s known for. The shoes, designed by Rupert Sanderson, were no exception and definitely amplified the seduction. Dramatically laced over-the-knee boots in dominatrix black leather, strappy closed toed sandals, and ankle booties that would practically scream “bad ass” add a welcome edge to this collection.
For Roksanda Ilincic’s Fall 2014 line, Nicholas Kirkwood amped up the classic tasseled loafer. The modern feeling flats are sometimes color blocked and sometimes metallic, but the shoes are always a hint of modern and a lot of sweet.
Nicholas’ work for Erdem has perfectly captured the dark, romantic vibe the brand is known for. The dramatic shoes come with a chunky heel and are in variants of a stunning floral pattern (swoon!), bedazzled and bejeweled, and with hints of crocodile skin. Every dynamic pointed-toe shoe has a flat counterpart – just in case you want to switch up your heel game a bit.

Hot on the heels of a fiery collaboration with Target and Net-A-Porter, we knew that Peter Pilotto’s shoes would be something incredible to write home about. Utilizing the designing prowess of Nicholas Kirkwood, the heels are strappy, they’re a gorgeous combination of leather and suede, they’re gem toned, they are piped with iridescent colors and neon, and they’re accented with colorful takes on tortoise shell. They might just redefine “cool.”
One of the standout collaborations Manolo Blahnik was a part of for the Fall 2014 season is surely his gorgeous heels for the ever eclectic, yet always classy, designs of Osman Yousefzada. The collection was rich and dynamic, filled with prints inspired by Morocco’s ornamental tiles – the best way to accent the vivid line? Blahnik kept it simple with a major edge. Black velvet heels accented with tassels, rabbit fur booties with a shocking teal heel, and fuzzy cream and black pumps; at first glance, the shoes might seem standard, but they truly redefine trend setting.
For Emilia Wickstead and Richard Nicoll, Manolo Blahnik recreated classics. Whether casting snake skin prints in satin for a slingback pump or reinventing the heeled oxford (metallic leather and velvet? We can’t swoon any harder, seriously!), Manolo Blahnik proves time and time again that classics are truly wardrobe workhorses.
Because apparently Manolo Blahnik refuses sleep for more designer collaborations (the Karl Lagerfeld of footwear, he’s everywhere!), he also created footwear for Felder Felder, Maros Schwab, and Pringle of Scotland. Each shoe seemed to be more classic than the one before – from satin to lovely metallic leather, the sheer versatility of the pieces make them instant wardrobe staples.
Christopher Bailey deserves a medal for his latest collection for the fashion powerhouse that is Burberry Prorsum. It was bohemian, yet graceful. It was wild at heart, yet still retained an air of sophistication. Patterns, art, and color – simply viewing the collection is like a trip to the nearest art museum. Imaginative and vivid, the shoes mirrored the gorgeous myriad of colors in the collection by acting as canvases for whimsical swirls of varying hues. The open toed bootie was accented with a wooden heel and platform, somehow making these shoes even dreamier.
Mary Katrantzou’s line always sets our hearts aflutter, she’s one of the designers at the forefront of modernized romance. That said, not a single digital print seeped into her designs this time around, having been inspired by the world of the “professional.” Was she crazy? Has the world gone mad? And then you see the footwear and everything just…clicks. Color blocked and packing a punch, the square-toed shoes are hefted upon a thick heel – at times solid, other times as a sandal. If this is Mary’s take on professional, we’d love to see her take on weekend fun!
There is something expensively gaudy about Tom Ford, a luxurious flamboyance that cemented his legacy at Gucci and an essence that still resonates within his latest collections. Channeling Studio 54 and the mid-sixties, the soles we saw were nearly cowboy inspired in that when you saw the stiletto boots tromping down the runway, the correct response was “wow, those are definitely boots.” Exotically skinned, baby blue, and sometimes velveteen, they were as excessive as we expect from Tom Ford. For a more discerning consumer, he also designed an ankle bootie embellished with TF in rhinestones, because “understated” simply is not in his vocabulary.
With a theme like debauched debutantes, it’s only expected that Henry Holland turned out some truly outrageous apparel. Sequins, neon lame, and frilly frocks that would have Paris Hilton circa-2002 clicking her heels in joy. Speaking of the shoes, they kept with the near-cartoonish allure of the bombastic collection. Oversized pearls? Check. Velvet, velvet, and more velvet? Check. Giant pom poms? Check. Candy colored hues indicative of House of Holland? Check! The master of kitsch has struck again.
Christopher Kane’s sumptuous, unpretentious collection was filled with creativity (those 3D effect dresses will haunt our dreams in the best way) and surprising bursts of color. As always, the accessories were pictures of perfection – the handbags detailed and edged in geek chic and the shoes? The shoes. Dynamic takes on the platform Mary Jane, amped up by ruffled leather, mule backings, and exotic snakeskin, make this classic design utterly modern.
Beyoncé wore Tom Ford thigh-high embellished boots to a screening of her new eponymous fifth studio album ‘Beyoncé’ held at The School of Visual Arts Theatre in NYC.
