We’re still keeping the red carpets covered from Hollywood to Manhattan so you can see how celebs are putting their Sexy Sagacious Starry Selves together. We emerge entirely convinced that your days of choosing a dress first and then shoes look gonzo. We don’t mind saying, deal with it. Shoes are gorgeous and they go first. Shoes run the show this year and next, with just as much attitude as dresses, if not more. See what we found—and check out what we recommend.
Actress Jennifer Irwin can draw admirers day or night with this simple outfit of black fitted leather jacket over black sheath. She was snapped at the premiere of HBO’s East Bound and Down in Hollywood with a busy tangle of tie-up heels. We would have relieved her feet with Tory Burch Eddie ballet flats in leather. These wear-anything winners have logo stamp details at the back heel cover.
Christine Teigen poses with beau John Legend in a fly coat at the October 21 New York premiere of Runaway. Competing with a bling-bling chain of fans ogling Kanye West on the same red carpet, though, Christine’s dress could have turned more heads with the Sam Edelman Lorissa pump in black suede, commanding its own bling-bling with spike and stone details.
Helena Christensen is photographed at the launch of The Montblanc John Lennon Edition in New York. In Lennon terms, imagine all the people looking at her gorgeous self: archangel meets Victoria’s Secret. Her blue dress with a strawberry-fields mood of flowers offset by brown shoulderbag with gold chain just rocks. The missing piece to Perfect are these Ash Virgin sneakers in stone leather with buckle details.
Charlotte Ronson attends the New York premiere of Runaway in a Robin Hood-meets-Keebler-Elf outfit. Her look leaves us troubled by the esthetic limitations imposed by boredom. By far, we could have staged a Steve Madden Troopa black leather intervention. This high-attitude combat boot wins any battle for attention, and certainly rescues Charlotte from blah to bold.
