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]

Despite an unceremonious fall from grace in 1992, ’80s artist Rob Pruitt is making a name for himself once again in the contemporary art world, thanks in part to the chrome statue of Andy Warhol he erected on a high-traffic street corner in Manhattan’s Union Square last year. One would think that, with his irreverent creative sensibilities and the offhand, possibly misconstrued brand of “racism” that got him ousted from the scene in the first place, luxury fashion collaborations would be off the radar for this former wunderkind. Not so! Far from it, in fact — Pruitt has dreamed up an 18-piece collection for none other than Jimmy Choo, and God, is it hideous. Keep reading »

First off, can I just say … our intern has the best last name: Moo-Pow. I love it. Not only that, but she’s great and she has a minor dilemma: she needs the perfect pair of black strappy sandals. She saw some on Pinterest that she liked, but isn’t sure where to find them. Because Pinterest is basically useless like that. Anyways! While we couldn’t find the exact pair, we did manage to put together a few worthy and similar options. Check them out after the jump! Keep reading »

Things That Actually Exist: Sexy Bowling Shoes

Unfortunately they’re not recommended for actual bowling, but you can definitely wear them to make a grand entrance at the bowling alley before changing into a pair of normal, sweaty bowling shoes to roll a ball down the lane. However your game pans out, you’ll get a perfect score for glamour. [Laughing Squid]

As I’ve mentioned before, there are very few moments in my life where I’m not wondering, Where the hell am I? So it was with great interest that I read about a pair of “No Place Like Home” GPS shoes that can guide you to any destination with a Dorothy-esque click of your heels. Creator Dominic Wilcox explains how the magical footwear work:

“After uploading your required destination to the shoes via a piece of custom-made mapping software and a USB cable, the GPS, which is embedded in the heel, is activated by a heel click. It then communicates to the wearer via a ring of LED lights to point in the required direction. The shoe with the GPS wirelessly communicates with the right shoe that has a progress bar of lights to show how close you are to the destination.”

Right now the shoes are just a prototype, but I need them to become a reality, like, now. In the meantime, I might have to DIY my own by duct taping my smart phone to the toe of my red sequin pumps. “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home…” [Dominic Wilcox]

It’s Here! Anna Dello Russo’s Gorgeously Gilded Accessories Collection For H&M

It was only a matter of time before Vogue Japan editor-at-large and totally OTT fashionista Anna Dello Russo got to put her medal of approval on a line of her own, and it’s only natural that she of the outrageous fascinators and tacky-goes-high fashion opulence would cut her design teeth on — what else? — accessories. We’re pretty sure that Anna’s diehard devotion to kooky couture and right-off-the-runway looks has never led her wayward into a lowly H&M, but what does it matter when her choice to collaborate with the retailer means that we can walk in off the street and snag one of her signature gilded pieces at a reasonable price?

With 50 pieces ranging from $24.95 for pendant earrings to $299 for a formidable pair of thigh-high leather boots, they’re affordable enough that you can follow Anna’s advice to accessorize liberally or play it a little more low-key. But don’t bother to ask yourself what Anna would do — she’d pile ‘em right on, of course. Click through to check out all of the offerings, and do tell us which ones you’ll be fighting for come October 4. We’ll be picking up that peacock fascinator just to say we did.

Must Haves: 10 Badass Boots For Less Than $100

I spent most of the long weekend curled up on my couch with a stack of September fashion magazines and a plate of cranberry orange scones (yes, it was heavenly), and I fell head over heels in love with this season’s crop of boots: they’re studded, strappy, slouchy, and they look seriously sexy with everything from flouncy dresses to ripped-up jeans. What I didn’t fall in love with were all the triple (and quadruple!) digit price tags, so I decided to search for some affordable alternatives. Click through to check out 10 badass boots that won’t break the bank, unless of course you buy all of them, which is what I plan to do…
