Can You Tell The High-End Glitter Heels From The Knock-Offs?

Glitter high heels are the kind of accessory every girl oohs and aahs over, but probably hasn’t worn since the days of princess dress-up sessions. Well, these flashy kicks are making a comeback. And a very expensive one at that, thanks to some new models by Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, and other high-end footwear designers. Two of these pairs are extremely pricey (one is worth over $1,300!) and the other two will cost you less than a chicken dinner. Can you guess which? The answers, after the jump. Keep reading »

Sneak Peek: Adidas Pays Homage To Princess Leia

Behold, an immaculate conception that threatens to overshadow that other one commonly celebrated around this time of year: Take perhaps the most famous sexy movie costume ever, combine it with a pair of iconic sneakers and you have, ta-da, the Adidas Originals Star Wars Collection “Princess Leia.” So far, the preview only shows a sliver of the shoe, but we’re gonna go out on a limb here and guess they’ll look pretty awesome? Start lining up behind the serious collectors in January. [Nitrolicious] Keep reading »

We’re Off To See The Wizard

I. Love. These. Shoes. I’ve got a thing for sparkly red shoes — I think I watched “The Wizard of Oz” one too many times when I was a kid — and I’m still sort of obsessed with the whole heel-less shoe phenomenon, so these amazing numbers by Natacha Marro are drool-inducing. Stars who’ve worn Marro’s out-there designs include Gwen Stefani, Daphne Guinness, and Grace Jones; plus, she designed Luke Skywalker’s shoes in the latest “Star Wars” movies. These glittery “liquid red” Mary Janes are hand-made to order, and a limited edition, so only 10 pairs will ever be crafted. Also, they are around $800. So, you know, I will probably never own a pair. Sigh. [Style Bubble] Keep reading »

We Love: Flat Ankle Boots

We’ve been noticing an awful lot of flat ankle boots lately and can’t get enough of them. Style blogger Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast is particularly badass in her use of our new favorite footwear, pairing them with cropped pants and mini skirts alike. We’re big fans of her Jimmy Choo for H&M faux, snake-skin booties, but also like the idea of something a bit more, well, toned down. Either way, they’re going on the shopping list. Keep reading »

Christian Louboutin Weirdly Obsessed With Cankles

Shoe god Christian Louboutin has a major erm, bone to pick with ankles. More specifically, he hates cankles. Like as in he really can’t shut up about how much he detests them. The designer notoriously spoke out about Barbie’s “fat ankles” recently, and now the iconic designer can’t keep quiet, as he’s back on the issue. “The thing that really restricts me is not fabrication; it’s the ankle,” he said. “You can do a design, and it looks good on paper — then when you put it on it makes your legs look fat.” Interestingly enough, Mr. Louboutin himself wears Adidas tennis shoes.

Quotable: About Those Shoes You’re Wearing …

“I prefer shoes that undress to shoes that dress. A successful shoe is a shoe that accentuates nudity. The woman remains entirely nude when she wears those shoes. The shoe becomes the privilege of nudity … If you are very chic you might not need an extra drop of chicness, so you go for the sexy side and buy my shoes because they are … tarty. We get very smart women coming in and buying a pair to feel a little more sluttish. And then, thank God, we also get the hookers coming in the store, who buy my shoes because they are superchic. You see, whatever you have, if you add a drop of the opposite, then it just becomes a little more sexy.”
