Celebrities Usher in Spring With Bold Red Shoes!

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

With the onset of Spring, it’s not just our moods that are brightening up. It’s our shoes! Red in particular seems to be the color celebrities have chosen to express that dark Winter days are behind us. Indeed, if the catwalks of Paris and our favorite stars have anything to say about it, red shoes are shaping up to be this season’s hottest fashion trend. Here are our favorite ways to flaunt this bold footwear choice:

Take a page out of Anne Hathaway’s book and keep the rest of your outfit classy, dark and simple. Let your shoes make that loud statement for you, while remaining a woman of mystery and subtlety. To get this look yourself, try pairing a simple black dress with the Change of Venue mid-heel sandal.

Brimming with Spring sunshine and want the whole world to know? Taylor Swift can show you how it’s done. The charming singer recently made waves in a gorgeous lemon-colored dress, complemented perfectly by the bright cherry kisses of a simple pair of red heels. To achieve this look on your own, choose bold, contrasting colors, like a sunny yellow shirt, jeans, and some Emerald low-heel sandals in flame red and wear them with confidence. If yellow is too much for you, try a vivid blue. Just don’t choose too many colors and keep your accessories simple. There will be no doubt that Spring has arrived as soon as you walk into a room!

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

Jon Hamm of Mad MenMad Men hottie John Hamm knows how to look good on and off the screen. With impeccable style, John Hamm has become one of the top fashion icons for men in the past couple of years. So with Mad Men on hiatus, and some time off to relax, how does Hamm dress during his time off? The answer is casual sport, and his t-shirt and shorts look is completed with a pair of Asics sneakers. Asics sneakers are just what any guy needs in their closet to look polished and laid back at the same time. We love their comfort, go-anywhere casual good looks, and huge variety of colors! Asics are a great casual shoe for both men and women, but Jon Hamm definitely wears them particularly well!

Kim Kardashian Loves Report Fairfax Boots

Kim Kardashian sure loves her Report Signature Fairfax boots.  She’s been seen in the black, brown, and taupe versions of the boot, but she wears her basic black pair most of all.  Kim wears her Fairfax boots with black leggings…the better to show off her famous derriere.  Kim is nothing if not an international sex symbol, so we’re going to follow her lead here and say that these have got to be some of the sexiest boots around.

The Fairfax boot is crafted of luxurious leather and slit in the back so that it can be worn thigh-high or cuffed for a different look.  The boots are fitted to the leg, so break out your skinniest skinnies or rock leggings like Kim.  Thigh-high boots are still the boot trend of the year, and we don’t see it going anywhere soon.

Selena Gomez wore these Giuseppe Zanotti Silk Satin Bow Sandals to the Grammy Nominations Concert in Los Angeles a few weeks ago.  These leopard-print satin sandals are oh-so-girly, and we think they’re to die for.  The one drawback is the price: they cost a cool $1,044.

But if you don’t have that kind of cash lying around, no sweat!  You can copy Selena’s feminine bow look for less!  Here are a few great copycat choices.

Power Struggle booties by Irregular Choice

We’re drooling over these Power Struggle booties by Irregular Choice.  The metallic snakeskin paired with the girly bow?  Perfection.

Senorita heels by Paris Hilton

These Senorita heels by Paris Hilton have all the feminine sex appeal of Selena’s shoes…at a fraction of the price!

Mistletoe Kisses heels by Poetic Licence

We love these Mistletoe Kisses heels by Poetic Licence.  The platform and textured metallic look give them a rocker edge that’s topped off by the sweet side bow.  The combination of hard and soft makes these surefire attention-getters.

Celebs Love Classic Red Heels

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

Red lipstick and red heels are two fashion accessories that will never go out of style.  Celebrities have always used red heels to add a little sex appeal to their outfits, and we hope they’ll never stop, because we love the results.

Here, Nicole Richie, Cameron Diaz, and Dita Von Teese rock simple outfits punched up with sexy red heels.  This is one celebrity trend that you can definitely emulate.  Check out our editors’ faves here:

These Jeremy platform heels by Bebe are totally on-trend.

We love the slightly rocker-style rivets in these Penny Loves Kenney Thrill heels.

The bow on these Poesy kitten heels by Nina is just to die for.

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

People Style WatchWith Christmas around the corner and Ugg Dakota at DNA FootwearHanukah already underway it is officially gift season. In honor of this exciting occasion many fashion magazines put out lists of the hottest most desirable gifts this holiday season. People Style Watch put out a fabulous gift guide:  “12 Can’t-Miss Classics”.

In the cuddle-demanding cold the Dakota slipper from Ugg is the perfect accessory to go with your home pajamas as well as your cozy jeans and chunky sweaters. These moccasin slippers are the ideal winter shoe because thanks to their rubber sole they can be worn outside, and not just as slippers. These woolly moccasin slippers feature suede upper and a plush sheepskin lining. Some of our favorite stars wear Ugg Dakota slippers to stay comfortable in movie and television show sets.

Dakota Fanning Sports a Girly Look with Punk Boots

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

Dakota Fanning sure has grown up!  The young starlet wears a funky look while shopping with a friend in Los Angeles.  We think that what could be over-the-top girlyness from the miniskirt and leopard-skin coat is perfectly grounded by her punky, masculine boots.  Boots like these add a rocker-sexy edge to more feminine prints, and they’re perfect for winter too.  Here are a few of our editors’ fave punk boot picks for this season.

This Brit Ankle Boot by Jeffrey Campbell has awesome punk style with a modern twist.  We love the nailheads, the crisscrossed strap, and the aged look of the leather.

We also love these Fulton boots by Frye.  There’s a bit more traditionally punk, so they’ll be in style for seasons to come.  So break out the animal print or flouncy florals with no fear this winter!
