Yesterday, The Frisky’s Official Celine Dion Fan Winona posted an awesome Celine look, and reader bettyb said she was craving Celine’s shoes. We feel you. But! Since Celine is, well, Celine we figure her shoes are pretty unaffordable. If we had to guess, we’d say she’s wearing either a pair of $450 Burberry pumps or a $557 pair of Guccis . But who has the cash for that? After the jump, we give you the whole look — including Celine’s to-die-for Jil Sander coat — for way less.

Often when I’m looking for a celeb outfit to steal, the first place my eyes go is to the ground to get a good look at their footwear. It always seems like such a shame when the rest of their outfit doesn’t work from the ankles up, or the clothes are great but the shoes are a travesty. Well, who says we have to steal the whole outfit anyway? Not me, and I’m in charge around here! Here are 10 celeb shoes I love that you can steal for much less!
I don’t know anything about the story behind these shoes, but I do know that this picture makes an extremely compelling argument for gun control and veganism. [Cheezburger]
Celebrities have been hot for studded ankle boots since Chloé released their ridiculously popular “Susan” (right, on Kate Bosworth) in 2008, and with Isabel Marant’s updated, higher-heeled Americana (left, on Kate Moss) take on a similar pair, it’s only a matter of time before every starlet is sporting them on the street once again. I hesitate to call it a mere trend, because these shoes have serious staying power — just ask eternal trendsetters like these two Kates, who have both worn theirs with surprising regularity when you consider that they have, like, every awesome thing ever at their beck and call. I’ve had my eye on the booties for years, and while I imagine it must be very satisfying to own ‘em, the best thing about a super-popular shoe is that it often “inspires” plenty of more reasonably priced versions. Cop this celeb favorite look for way less, after the jump! Keep reading »
One of my favorite men’s looks is a sleek pair of high top sneakers, and don’t even get me started on my oxford boot fetish. However, thanks to Givenchy, I now know that these two awesome styles should never, ever, under any circumstances be combined. The result, as you can see, is a perplexing, fur-lined atrocity of a shoe. [Refinery 29]
This whole Hurricane Sandy thing has reminded us how unpredictable and destructive weather can be — especially if you’re caught outdoors without some protective rain gear. But there’s no reason you can’t beat the rain and look cute, too. That’s why we’ve combed through and found ten tough-as-nails, water-resistant pairs of colorful and cheery rain boots that’ll save you from ruining your shoes.
In my humble opinion, T-strap heels might be the sexiest shoes of all. There’s something about their retro vibe and the way they draw attention to the ankle that is just so freakin’ fabulous. Also? They look amazing with contrasting tights or hosiery. I found 10 pairs of T-straps in an array of colors, heel heights, and price points. Click through to check ‘em out!
These toothy oxfords, made with a pair of British dress shoes and over 1,000 dentures, are just an art project at this point, but let’s hope they don’t become a trend. I have a hard enough time remembering to floss the teeth in my mouth–I’m not sure I could handle the extra responsibility of flossing my shoes. [Fantich & Young]
Artist Leanie van der Vyver created these insanely high leather heels, aptly titled “Scary Beautiful,” to draw attention to the strange and intense ways humans alter themselves to achieve “perfection.” The front heel requires the wearer to lean forward onto their shins in order to stand and walk upright(ish). Extreme? Yes, but if you had no context at all for modern day beauty standards, would these seem any more ridiculous than a 6-inch studded Louboutin stiletto? Or a syringe full of Botulinum we use to voluntarily paralyze the muscles in our faces? Food for thought. Check out a scary, beautiful video of the shoes in action, after the jump… [Laughing Squid] Keep reading »
Because fashion never puts a moratorium on being weirdly racially-charged (but not quite “racist”): French house Céline showed yesterday at Paris Fashion Week, and while the clothes were perfection (as Céline is wont to be), things got weird with the footwear, including some AstroTurf offerings and, um, these. They’re to die for, I know, but don’t get too attached: they only come in one shade, Caucasian. Honestly, I think this is less of a “diversity oversight” and more like this may very well be the only pair because who would actually wear them? Seriously, who? What’s bothering me infinitely more than the racial implications is the realistic bunching (wrinkles?) around the heel. I’m gagging. [NY Mag]
