Shoe

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.

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.

nicki minaj versace shoes

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!

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

Rihanna is one of the hottest singers at the moment- she has been a hit music-money-making-machine releasing the singles as if her life depended on it and they are all getting that number one spot.

She has been back in the studio in recent weeks working and recording the tracks for her next album which is due for release next week 21st November 2011, the album is named “Talk that Talk” and in preparation for it she has been submitting pictures to her facebook account for her thousands of fans to like and love.

The pictures are all very steamy in typical Rihanna form. But are taken from a friends perspective with the singer relaxing in a stripy baby onesy/ baby grow or backstage preparing to perform at her world tour all very candid and fun. Something most other artists are not doing- I believe she is young- she understands the power of social media such as Facebook and Twitter and she is using it to communicate with her fans and followers which is enabling her to become an even larger success. Business 100%

She has also released these professional fashion shots of herself in her latest pair of designer craze shoes- not as price conscious as her creepers but they follow the same sort of punk rocker style- Blaenciaga cut out flat boots.

They Retail at $1,275.00 and are taken from this years spring summer collection.

The boots are not particularly something I would wear- but I guess if your aiming for a cool hard rocker look then these bad boys are awesome- very androgenous and masculine.

Mary-Kate has been spotted in them whilst walking the streets of New York- so Rihanna is not alone in this one.

So Beyonce has been out and about flaunting her baby bump curves and yesterday as she headed back to her office she was seen looking rather casual in this fab Love Potion jumper by Wildbox.

The jumper is a cute one- obviously the Chanel perfume bottle which is legendary.

Beyonce’s adoptive sister Kelly Rowland has also worn the jumper on a photo shoot- they claim to share everything including fashion!

Kelly looks pretty hot in the blue short shorts and cropped bob.

The jumper has also been seen on country singer Taylor Swift.

The controversial couple we spotted on the red carpet yesterday for the premier of “Mountaintop” in New York City. Alicia Keys looked “nice” in a simple black jeans, sheer black top and striking green jacket number as she posed next to her husband music producer Swizz Beats. The two adopted an arrange of clothing from the latest collection of the most popular designers at the moment in support of the film starring Angela Bassett and Mr Samuel L. Jackson.

 

For one- Alicia Keys’ shoes have been taken from the Christian Louboutin collection retailing at $2,295 for the outspoken newspaper print pair of shoes.

daffodile brodee pumps

The shoes are a mark to celebrate 20 years of Louboutin’s which is deemed unforgettable and self proclaimed très fantastique- smart embroidery finished by hand give these shoes their elevated price tag- alongside the sky high  heels which add 160mm to any wearers height.

She had her Italian Christian Louboutin Artemis metallic python spike strap handbag carefully placed over one shoulder- which attempted to turn the outfit into something more spectaculer. The bag retails at $2,000 and can be purchased from Barneys!

The look of this outfit is rather plain, She also appears to be trying to get back into shape post pregnancy  so is often found in black outfits which hide a multitude- I actually prefer her this shapely its nice!

alicia keys green jacket

Swizz went for a Philip Lim Double breast wool peacoat ($1,100) and some L.V Winter summit boots ($1,100)

The couple seem to be doing well- glad to see you out Alicia!

Autumn is in full swing as the warm summer temperature plummets, shorter evenings and falling brown leaves line the streets and its only natural in this transformation of seasons that we head to the depths of our wardrobes to find the light to medium jackets for the morning commute. Feeling rather disheartened by the change around in the outfits from summer to autumn with the correct shoes this can be fun and easy.

The shoes I really find attractive at the moment are the mens loafers.

Loafers are a cool dapper option for men to wear from the usual comfortable  shoes like trainers, Vans or Timberlands.

This guide looks to a few of our favourite Loving the Loafers shoes which can easily add some dapper to your look!

 

Carshoe..

HORSE – CORDOVAN

These elegant Manshoes are an exclusive from Carshoe-  now Prada owned, theses shoes boasts sophistication, charm and suave.

The signature item of these are the nuggets on the bottom of the shoe.

These are only three of some of our favourite mens footwear- It only occured to me how cute these shoes are as I walked through Bond Street in London yesterday.

One gentleman worked his loafers wonderfully accross New Bond Street- Even I had to take note!

Celebrities are also realising the attractive side of the English Dapper fashion featured on the male style icon Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend Scott.

Found here only two days ago (October 6th) out with his mother in law Chris Jenner.

His fashion is truley defined and we love it!
