Shoe

Beyonce has officially come out of hiding and is now been spotted walking the baby and what we have noticed is that her fashion has transformed to be more a relaxed and rather cool yummy mummy than her traditional sexy look she usually always goes for- which is great, she is embracing this time being a new mum and is doing well staying away from the 10 inch heels her feet are accustomed/subjected to.

Last week the Queen Bee was spotted out with the latest Carter in a rather urban looking outfit choosing sneakers and black woolly hat, sunglasses and a large overcoat very discrete whilst every inch of Baby Blue was covered in her baby wrap.

We have had a lot of request about her mega cool high top trainers / sneakers and we have managed to match them up with the shoes that a lot of celebrities have been wearing including Beyonce herself.

Beyonce’s $640/ £440 black suede sneakers by Isabel Marant have sold out since she has been snapped out in New York over the past few days. However similar colours of the shoe can be purchased from Mytheresa Barneys or Polyvore. Most shops have sold out but similar Isabel Marant sneakers are available..

 


beyonce's black sneekersThe singer has been spotted in the love on top music video wearing the shoes whilst she was in the early stages of her pregnancy – she teamed the sneakers with her now signature leotard and a gold sailor hat which worked well for the video keeping focus on the dance moves and not an over complex outfit and as usual her song was a hit.

 

beyonce's trainers in love on top videoOther celebrities that have given the casual look a try seem to be on the increase, could it be that flat shoes are becoming the new heel? Other than the recent videos Beyonce would never be caught dead in flat shoes so maybe they are the new heel.. (nah, I don’t think so either) but those that have tried it include the classically beautiful Anne Hathaway:

Alicia Keys is one to be very close with urban fashion so we would expect her in something such as these- here she sat with her Husband and son at a basketball game in a pair of the sneakers.

alicia keys isabel marant sneakersMiranda Kerr and son also had a pair of the trainers in red..

The great thing about the sneakers is that they come in a plethora of colours so you can pick one that suits you the most, black is most practical but if your like me and love a bit of colour go wild!

So after bumping into the Brian Atwood website I saw the fabulous shoes created by the Atwood team so becoming inspired this post will be showcasinga top 5 countdown from the latest collection.

Brian is a favourite for several celebrities from Eva Longoria and Megan Fox and you can see why- the shoes are hot!

5. So we have the Ammy– beautiful elegant piece- a work of art really! loving the simple black curl trim and gold stiletto heel and a peep toe which is great for showcasing the latest nail varnish! Perfect for spring summer and autumn and heck they look that good why not wear it in the winter!

4. Claudia Bis : This Golden gorgeous pump is number four on our list- every woman needs a pair of golden shoes be like Dorothy and sparkle in these pumps- these are even great for the office for the day when you want to stand out, why not just combine these with a black skirt suit fitted jacket and some gold shoes -Stand out statement shoes called Claudia Bis

claudia brian atwood3. MANIAC- is the name of these and thats exactly what they portray but in the sense of the cute high fashion maniac!

Clearly for the inner Barbie that all of us lovely ladies have inside (some deeper than others ) but again these could be a really pop out piece that can be added to a black pant suit or a colourful dress but for real impact these patent Manic’s look great with something subtle- may as well let the couture do the talking whilst your doing the walking!

brian atwood maniac pink shoes2. ALESHA another pink choice- I do love the bright coloured shoes these ones are a bit subtle compared to the maniac’s. I am really loving the platform on these shoes paired with the chunky heels- these would be great for a night out added stability in the heel makes these FAB-U-LOUS!

The lovely ABBA’s are my first choice we love it here- peep toe, stiletto heel sling back and a superb large platform heel.

These black pumps are so versatile can be worn with anything- elegant.

The cream outline adds a lovely trim.

Hakes the architectural designer has evolved to become the latest and most unique shoe designers over the past few years, why you may ask, well, his designs instantly cause the viewer to initially raise an eyebrow at the prospect that the abstract “piece of art”  is actually a fully functional shoe.. His years and history in architecture had probably led him to this natural progression to think outside of the box to create these curly and rather curvy yet very mind boggling designer shoes that really do require extra thought when putting them on.

Its probably best to stay away from these after a few glasses of champagne…you have been warned! Pictures to follow and enjoy!

The London born designer came up with the idea from analysing current traditional shoes which have ultimately been a simple and obvious progression and evolution in terms of design from the sandal, Julian Hakes saw to challenge this completely revolutionising and rethinking the footplate and the word ‘SHOE’ as a whole.

“The result of this process was Hakes Mojito – we named it this as it was rather like a twist of lime peel. It is a unique shoe design concept, a single wrapped geometry which starts under the ball of the foot, sweeps over the bridge, then down below the heel before twisting back on itself to provide the support for the heel and ankle”

INDEED HE DID!

The shoes are glorious incredibly individual and eye catching and a complete 180 degrees on current shoe fashion and trends, something different from the much loved red heel that everyone seems to wear now. I cannot wait to see these blanket cover the entire celebrity wardrobe.

Now this is signature piece to take note of and his name is:-

HAKES- YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD!

Anyone that is ANYONE, or rather, anyone that tries to be Someone would have been snapped in the signature red soled shoe- we all know the red soles are one of the greatest identifiers of luxury elegance and class- it is a prominent and obvious way to show you have the purse to purchased a designer shoe and this simple marketing ploy has been one of the fundamental success for the Louboutin brand.

Vanessa Hudgens has been spotted looking rather happy in recent months as a lot of things seem to be going well for her, which is nice to hear. She seems to have lost the weight from her film role “Gimme Shelter” whereby she played a pregnant teenager and she back in shape looking rather lovely with her current boyfriend Austin Butler, she has been snapped a plethora of times whilst out and about with the guy looking rather cosy, but today she decided to hit the spa and have a little pick-me-up as she left the salon looking refreshed and on point.

In particular today she chose to wear a very striking pair of boots By Miista and they are on sale at the moment for £96.00 from free people.com.

A very good price point considering!

The shoe is a two toned laced platform with three buckles made from leather and a hidden zipper closing on the inside for a snug and comfortable fit.

She paired her shoes with some distressed jeans and a chic shabby jumper.

Her glasses are also rather glam by Marc Jacobs and frame her face and brown hair well.

They are the Black Havana Framed aviator and can be purchased direct from Marc

Today’s spotlight shoe is the weird and wonderful boots made by D&G- these ones are truly heart stopping and incredibly dramatic and will also keep your legs and feet warm over Christmas..horrah! Never can you find shoes with so many pluses!

 

The Leather and rubber sole is great for comfort and the furry loose string body of the shoe makes it incredibly unique and something similar and more wearable than the shoes worn by Nicki Minaj on the set of her video with Willow Smith.

These beige shoes are a great altenative option for those not as daring but still experiemental.

They have a heel height of 13.00 and can be purchased from the D&G site for £1,145.00 WooHoo

On the other side of this year Prada came out with their 2011 collection and with it came their version of the Brothel Creepers-

These rather interesting and eye catching shoes are the perfect mix between a trainer- (which is great as it incorporates a casual wear), an espadrille (so boasts comfort and great on the feet) and a platform so adds the element of high fashion.

Finalised with the Prada stamp these are on today’s Shoe Addiction list.

The unique lace up shoes come in a variety of colours with the signature rope tied platform stiletto with the current rrp at £510.00. They can be purchased online and in store.

Its a great retake on the classic men’s courtroom shoe that they have modified with a cool new twist which is androgynous and sexy for women as well.

The shoe has been an amazing seller with the help of Rihanna, the singer put these babies back on the map- and these prada lace ups are a cool alternative for both men and women.

So last night was the announcement of the 2012 Grammy awards in sunny Los Angeles and all the biggest music artists were out in full glory to present the nominations for the show that will be in February. One of the hottest artists Nicki Minaj came to the stage in a bright blue strapless dress which fitted her curvy body like a glove and as usual she had her bright but complimenting pink curly statemented hair.

Nicki Minaj was joined on stage by fellow pink lover Katy Perry in a very glamourous pink dress that also matched her pink tint hair.

Her gown by D&G had a soft lace overlay, strapless and figure huggingly tight.

Both looked fabulous side by side and complimented each others look really well- it was as if they had conversed before hand about their choice of outfits.

One of my favourite things on Nicki are her shoes!- oh yes- WE ARE back to shoes.

nicki minaj verace shoes grammy

Her Versace triple stacked platform shoes are a real show stopper, its not the first time we have seen Barbie in the shoes- she favours them quite a lot but on this particular night she chose a blue and white pair which go perfectly with her dress.

I have to say Nicki is known for going very loud and wild with her choice of outfits but this particular ensemble- despite the pink hair, is very well put together- there is nothing you can really knock, the dress, a lovely shade of bright blue, killer heels and awesome hair she worked it well today.

The dress has panels to the front and side- it works in a very similar way to the dress Kate Winslet in Stella Mccartney wore on two occasions, giving the subtle illusion of a slimmer waist, thighs and hips, Nicky due to her curves did not need the addition of a colour contrast otherwise it would be TOO CURVY! So it worked perfectly well for her. The rapper should also be happy as she was nominated for awards at the Grammys as well… watch this space in February to see if she wins!

Good job…

Whilst out in Harrods today, I happened to pass a beautiful pair of shoes- OH WOW they stopped me dead in my tracks!

Amongst all the other shoes I had tried on and seen today- it was these that caught my eye… that is a big calling- so I thought it was an important one to let you know.

It wasn’t simply because they were in a showcase cabinet with bright light  that enhanced the sparkle alongside the matching purse!

No- no.. I am not one to fall for store selling tricks but Simply the art of these shoes that they are a real show stopper..

Retail price of these limited editions are £295.00

I loved the larger than life embellished crystals and the nude colour of the shoe- the heel isn’t ridiculously high so they can be worn to dance the night away. Which makes them Perfect.

Let me re-introduce the Karen Millen Swarovski Anniversary Collection.

They are for the sparkle princesses that love diamonds and bling- they are pretty and will get attention.

Take a Look..

The completely studded shoes can be paired with a multitude of colours- crystal ice whites- or demure blacks- colours- these shoes are really an investment piece!

Swarovski karen millen shoeThe shoe is apart of the Harrods Swarovski for Christmas Collection -of which are found throughout the store.

The shoes also have a matching bag

I do prefer the round toe shoes but for those that love to show their fresh pedicure there is also the peep toe.

Lovely ideas for the Christmas Party and even better NEW YEARS

So last night was the American Music Awards 2011 and some of the largest singers were out to collect their awards.

Of course we have to post our favourite of which there were many- but one which has caused me most excitement is one of my favourite female rappers- Nicki Minaj.

The young money artist has had an amazing year and amazing success at the show- winning several awards.

She performed her latest track and her current highest selling single SuperBass in a metallic robot outfit which was rather impressive- however unlike usual Nicki she was singing?- I have to be honest and say- I was not keen on this- she came out a rapper and I think she should continue down this path but anyway- we are here to talk clothes not poor career changes!

So Nicki accepted awards in a very dramatic Oscar De La Renta dress– only yesterday I was checking out some of the designers pieces and he is noted as one of the most expensive designers in the world!

nicki minaj american movie awards

Nicki’s dress is from the 2012 spring collection and one of the first celebrities to get her hands on the collection- which makes sense as she sat first row at his show back in September so she must have picked it as it walked by her on the model!

The dress was a bold green silk taffeta with a black battenburg lace and broderie anglaise bodice-  It also had a matching neck band.

She adopted her favourite colour for hair this particular evening- which complimented the gown and her lips- which is probably her limited edition Mac pink Friday lipstick.

She is also the latest spokesperson alongside Ricky Martin for MAC Cosmetics- and a pretty cool photograph came out of the pair- which is rather striking but the pair seems rather bazaar couple put together.

nicki minaj green dress

The dress is very similar to what we have been talking about as the upcoming trends or asymmetrical hem lines- which this is a less dramatic version but still follows suit.

We love it-

Nicki Loves it-

Under the dress she opted for some Alexander McQueen amour wedge sandals Rrp £2,495.00
