Keeping the momentum

7 Sep

As fashion weeks approach, I have to remain focused here on my blog and not post models only. As the first step of this process, here are ten marvelous shoes from not so long ago.

The first one is the “Spikette” pumps by Ruthie Davis, worn by Josie Loren:

Another really special is up next, this is Aperlai, brought to you by Maggie Q:

This is a net sandals with leather detail, comes in black too, costs around $1.000!

To be honest, I expected to see these überhyped Miu Miu heels a lot more often this summer than I actually did…

Good thing is, the beautiful Camilla Belle gave it a shot and put them on!

Here’s proof that Nicholas Kirkwood can design shoes that do not have Kirkwood written all over them:

Do you still like these shoes?

Talk about less well-known shoes! Here’s one from Stella McCartney:

The next one didn’t become the most popular shoes of all time either, but I think it still looks good:

These Tommy Hilfiger sandals are pure summer, right?

After three pair of shoes that might be new to you, here is the trademark Sergio Rossi pair:

Who wore it better? Emilia Clarke or Emma Roberts?

Okay, let’s look for something more affordable. Yes, Aldo!

The first one is like $90, comes in “bone” and purple, and has a 5 inch heel with a 0.75 inch platform:

The second pair comes in red and black (both suede), has a bit higher heels than 4 inches and costs around $110:

I saved the best for last again! Kerry Washington wore these shoes by Gio Diev back in July at the ESPY Awards:

Sergio meets Jimmy

2 Dec

Let me explain: this is not the title of a gay story. This is the title of a post which contains only Sergio Rossi and Jimmy Choo heels.

To start with, here are a few (okay: a lot of) ladies wearing those statement Sergio Rossi heels which may have been the biggest hit this summer.

Jackie Wilson’s “Higher and higher” jumps into my mind, use SR instead of “love”:

“Your love, lifting me higher
Than I’ve ever been lifted before
So keep it it up
Quench my desire
And I’ll be at your side, forever more

You know your love (your love keeps lifting me)
Keep on lifting (love keeps lifting me)
Higher (lifting me)
Higher and higher (higher)
I said your love (your love keeps lifting me)
Keep on (love keeps lifting me)
Lifting me (lifting me)
Higher and higher (higher)”

Talk shows provide a great opportunity to show what you’re wearing 🙂

Julie Bowen (Conan):

Leah Remini (Chelsea Lately):

To be honest, I’m not sure any more about these heels. I did like them for two or three months, but there has been an overload of them lately and I need to see something new. Let’s call it the “YSL T2 effect”.

Situation is different with Jimmy Choo. There are celebrities wearing “last season” JC shoes every now and then, but I don’t see them all the time, so I’m okay with that. “Private” and “Quiet” are great examples for that, while “Viola” is something new to my eyes.

“This style utilizes the feminine and sexy mix of soft leather and mesh to create a luxurious base for scattered Swarovski crystals in rich hues of gold or smoky quartz.”

Available in nude and anthracite, costs €1.245/$940, 12 cm heel.

“A favourite style on the red carpet. Make the ultimate statement with these fashion forward patent heels.”

Available in many-many colors, €695/$525, 12 cm heel.

“These iconic peep toe sandals in patent leather are bound to get you noticed.”

Available in red and black, €495/$375, 12 cm heel.

Have a nice weekend (Friday is basically weekend, isn’t t? 🙂 )!

 

Show me your heels!

This is the sentence that Ferguson and Leno could have said to their guests. Looks like Craig has a thing for shoes lol!

Kristen Bell

Sophia Bush

Juliette Lewis (in Jimmy Choo)

Heidi Klum

But that’s not all. I also happen to have a few new shoes to present!

To begin with, here’s Leighton Meester wearing brand new Jimmy Choos:

The next pair of heels is an even more amazing design:

Not only does this pair look extreme, it also less comfy than usual heels:

Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz recently explained that he had to scrap a lot of the heels in his spring 2011 show because “We did the rehearsal and all of a sudden I saw the girls couldn’t walk. I saw the agony in their faces. They were shaking; they looked like alcoholic girls.” Yet celebrities, who like to remind the world they are special enough to get to wear items now that were on the runway weeks ago, are wearing them anyway! Gwyneth Paltrow wore the spring 2011 mesh pumps from look 39 to the Country Strong premiere last night. “I’m in pain,” she told People of the stilettos. “I feel like I’m in a torture vice.” But she didn’t look like a sloppy drunk in the pictures, and when you’re Gwyneth that’s what really matters.

The next one should be better for your feet:

These shoes cost $850 and they could be the next hit by Brian Atwood.

Kelly Brook has a different one by him, it’s with ankle straps:

Last but not least, here’s Eva Mendes in Prada literally from head to toe. The dress is from the new Spring/Summer 2011 collection, while the shoes are the patent version of the already known one.

This is one of best looks I’ve seen by her. Wow.

That’s all for now, have a great weekend yourself!
