The world premiere of 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1'

Here’s actress Jena Malone, looking especially glamorous at the London premiere of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part I”. Jena paired gilded satin Charlotte Olympia Satin Dolly Pumps with a high-slit, off the shoulder satin gown. You can find a suede version of these Dollys for $795 at SSENSE.

Jena Malone has been acting since she was a child, and she spent most of her adolescence toiling away in grittier indie fare, but her high profile role in The Hunger Games franchise has finally catapulted her into the high fashion stratosphere. Incidentally, she also fronts a band called The Shoe.

Christian Louboutin Wants to Make Your Traveling Experience More Pleasurable

Designer Shoes

Christian Louboutin Air Loubi_Feature

Believe it or not, the man who has professed widely that comfort is not at the forefront of his mind when designing his shoes (and trust me, that’s clear) apparently cares about your comfort during at least one part of your life. Christian Louboutin has swapped his towering heels for the comfortable Air Loubi travel slipper.

The Air Loubi is a combination of a slipper and ballerina flat and is finished with a demure bow and the brand’s famous red sole. The brand refers to the Air Loubi as the travel slipper because Louboutin got inspiration for the design while watching a woman change into more comfortable shoes for a long flight.

At the end of the day, sometimes luxury and comfort win the race. If you are looking for a slipper for travel or to wear around the house, the Air Loubis will set you back $345, which is a relatively moderate price for the brand. You can shop these slippers at your local CL boutique or through Christian Louboutin online.

What Are Your Thoughts on White Boots in the Winter?

Designer Shoes

Saint Laurent Paris leather ankle boots

This weekend, I bought a gorgeous white coat in the style of Olivia Pope, and I’m swooning! I wore it yesterday for the first time and realized I had to avoid a lot more dirty surfaces on my way to work than I would if I had worn my usual black coat. My love for this coat is so strong, though, that I’m willing to take my chances. If I were this careful wearing a white coat, would I be able to survive wearing pristine white shoes in the dead of winter?

As much as I love everything and anything white, white shoes can be tricky because the faintest backsplash from a puddle will leave a hard-to-clean mark. You may be able to get away with white boots in winter if they have a lug sole to walk through slushy streets, but otherwise you’ll likely be looking more at your feet than what’s in front of you. If New York wasn’t such a dirty place, I would definitely wear an all-white boot in the winter.

If I wore my white coat with these Saint Laurent boots, I’d look as glamorous as a Kardashian.

Christian Louboutin Starlight Rouge Louboutin Holiday 2014 Nail Lacquer

Designer Shoes

Nail lacquers are a girl’s closest companions wherever she goes, from out for a fun sleepover with her best pals to vacations around the world. They bring glam to the looks we sport and leave the world fully enchanted and admiring our hands if done up right. Add some glitter, add some art, add some stones, and you have a masterpiece to behold. Long nails or short, French polish or Japanese designs, nail lacquers provide the perfect means of expressing individuality and exude an air of elegance. Nail polish colors range from funky metallic to classic reds, ocean blues to neon pinks. They bring a splash of color that matches the accessories that adorn our outfits and can cost a fortune to collect. Some are works of art in themselves, while the colors are simply stunning.

Christian Louboutin Starlight Rouge Louboutin Holiday 2014 Nail Lacquer

Christian Louboutin plays on a girl’s desire for diamonds and glam, combining the lustre with nail lacquer in the limited edition Starlight Rouge Louboutin nail lacquer for holiday 2014. The bottle in itself is a work of art, an object to be admired and coveted, to inspire the envy of all those who lay eyes on it. The red and black gradient effect is just lovely and creates the illusion of the sunset’s final red rays giving way to the night. If the pristine perfection of the piece in itself doesn’t captivate, with the 1800 two-tone Strass crystals hand-applied to the multi-faceted glass bottle, the highly-pigmented, rich nail lacquer in rouge will certainly have one falling in love with the meticulousness by which it was produced. The color is long-wearing and chip resistant, with a patented brush custom-designed for this limited edition piece that allows for precise application while the weighted long cap allows for better control overall. The formula is made so that there are no air bubbles to worry about as it gives your nails flawless coverage.

Funny enough, the extra-long cap reminds us of a bejewelled stiletto heel and does wonders for conjuring up images of fabulous vampire queens. Without a doubt, it is a rare and exquisite jewel to behold, though the price tag is rather steep at $675, available in Sephora stores. Of course, between the design, the brand and the product, it’s certainly a splurge that’s entirely worth it if you have the cash to spare. At the end of the day, a good nail polish is well worth the buy, particularly if it’s a limited edition high-quality bottle of artistic design.

Check out the Gianvito Rossi’s Spring 2015 Shoes

Designer Shoes

Gianvito Rossi SS 15_10

For Spring 2015, Gianvito Rossi’s shoes is as luxurious as ever. We were invited to check out this collection, and days later, this collection was still at the forefront of our minds. The use of textiles this season is to blame for it’s ultra luxe and opulent allure. The brand’s Fall 2014 collection focuses on lots of patent leather and silk, while the materials for Spring 2015 shift to suede and braided leather.

It’s unusual to feature the majority of a spring collection in velvety suede, but the cutout and caged silhouettes of these shoes makes them feel lightweight. Braided leather and dainty chain ornamentation are also major focuses for this collection, giving these shoes the refined, ladylike appeal that the brand is known for. It’s these pretty details combined with the innovative designs, that make for shoes you’ll want to own.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s Shoe Line Lands at Neiman Marcus with Six Exclusive Styles

Designer Shoes

SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker Phoebe Patent Mary Jane Pump,

Early Friday, Sarah Jessica Parker’s SJP shoe line landed at Neiman Marcus; to celebrate, the brand debuted six new styles exclusive to the retailer. Previously, SJP was sold only atNordstrom, and with the brand’s one year anniversary approaching in a few months, expansion is the natural next step.

Partnering with Neiman Marcus is wise because the retailer has a different, slightly more high-end clientele than Nordstrom which might not otherwise be aware of the line. While the majority of the products sold at Nordstrom fall into the contemporary price point, Neiman Marcus ranges from contemporary to luxury. The partnership with Neiman Marcus will allow both the luxury and contemporary consumer to be exposed to the SJP line and potentially increase the brand’s profile.

These six exclusive designs still follow Parker’s winning combination of modest heel heights and classic detailing with contemporary silhouettes, as you’ll see with the updated Mary Jane style. These might not be Carrie Bardshaw’s shoes, per se, but we doubt Carrie would be disappointed in this collection. If the exclusives below don’t intrigue you, check out the rest of the Fall collection through Neiman Marcus.
