Fresh off the runways of Paris, these fabulous pumps we’re a “shoe in” for this week’s Wild Shoe Wednesday…
Beadwork, fur trim all adorned in a rich cream color – Just in time for Spring? These fashionable Giuseppe Zanotti heels stomped their way down a Paris Fashion Week Runway during Kanye West’s DW shining designer moment…
No word yet on when or where these shoes will be seen next, or available for purchase but until then….there’s nothing wrong with a little shoe-lust to get you through your hump day.
As soon as sizzling photos of Zoe Saldana hit the net, the fashion world went buzzing about her modified Balmain dress. The golden embellished dress worn to the Miami premiere of he new action film – Colombiana had photographers mesmerized, but left the fashion world at odds debating if her modification was better than the original.
We definitely have our opinion, and that is the original was a complete knock-out (sorry Zoe). But the hidden jewel behind all the debate is in fact the focus of today’s Wild Shoe Wednesday…The Balmain Resort embellished booties.
The Balmain embellished peeptoe boots made their way abroad via the 2012 resort collection.
The tribal influences of this shoe coupled with the unique details and golden embellishments makes this shoe a total show-stopper regardless of wearing a matching Balmain dress or a potato sack.
I NEED THESE SHOES…..
Describe how you would rock these fabulous Balmain shoes – With a classic dress? Skinny jeans?
It’s been a while since we’ve indulged in the Wild Shoe Wednesdays — but we’re back and with a pair of pumps that command a second
third, fourth & fifth look!
As you can see, these whimsical Christian Louboutin Deja Vu Slingbacks are covered with big and small eyes that are as quirky as they are cute!

Last week while in LA, I noticed an influx of feather accessories (above the waistline)… Feather earrings were most popular, along with a few feather necklaces and even bracelets. Thinking that I was late behind this trend, I immediately tried to jump full speed ahead and find the ultimate feather accessory…and boy did I.
Check out these flamboyant, feather-filled frocks…and tell me: Is there a such thing as too many feathers?

“Who runs the world?
Girls! “ No, shoe designers run the world! They have us clamoring for the hottest shoe of the season, squeezing our size 10 foot in size 6 heel and painfully walking around for the sake of fashion! *OUCH* The designer that will be on everyone’s mind today is Gareth Pugh! He’s the mastermind behind Beyonce’s Girls Run The World “Golden Foot” look.
The space age shoe known as The Starship Enterprise shoe is the brainchild of acclaimed designer Gareth Pugh, who is known for his fashionable women’s collection, men’s collection and surprisingly footwear. This entire look can be examined & obsessed over completely during the world premiere of Beyonce’s “Girls Run The World” music video on American Idol. (In case you missed it, the video was originally set to premiere Friday, May 13th on Vevo but was “pushed back” to achieve visual “perfection” before it’s release.
Although the price is unknown, rest assured that you wont see these in your neighborhood nightclub or strutting down the local supermarket isle anytime soon.
The Starship Enterprise shoes are paired with Gareth Pugh’s Gold Shredder Dress for a complete “Out-Of-This-World” look!
SIDE NOTE: I’m curious about the stylist behind this complete look. Personally I believe that Lady Gaga could’ve taken the look and made it an unbelievable masterpiece. Maybe because, I tend to see Lady Gaga as an artist that wears the wardrobe vs Beyonce who allows the wardrobe to wear her. (Remember the theory that models are just supposed to be hangers to highlight the clothes? Well artists are supposed to reverse that theory and I don’t think that was quite executed well this time around…)
In Your Opinion Who ROCKS Haute Fashion Best? Beyonce or Lady Gaga?
She’s taking platform to all new heights with these beautiful shoes from Skovgaard’s Spring 2011 collection.
