The results of a contest conducted by Saks Fifth Ave and Footwear News are in. After tabulating results from 35k voters, the Sexiest Shoe for 2011 is a beige lace embroidered Valentino pump! Rounding out the top 4, Jimmy Choo’s Swarovski crystal sandals took second place, Prada came in third with knee-high high heeled leather boots. Finally, Chrissie Morris stepped into fourth position with black art deco ankle boots.
Not that I don’t love the femininity of Valentino’s lace peep toe but rather I’m just surprised it earned the top mark. It’s more girly than sexy to me. And who isn’t a little surprised that Christian Louboutin, last’s year’s winner, isn’t even amongst the top 4?

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Jimmy Choo, the designer shoe brand is releasing a time capsule of 15 defining shoes from their archives. Each shoe is being reimaged for modern times but retain many of the design elements that made the shoe a signature piece. One of my favorites from the Jimmy Choo Icons collection is the teal feathered Rita feather shoe. For Sex and the City fans, you’ll recall the Spring 1998 shoe from the SATC episode where Carrie runs after the ferry crying “Wait, I lost my Choo!”
The complete Jimmy Choo Icons collection is available for viewing on their website.

With Halloween right around the corner, Giuseppe Zanotti has cast a spell on me with these wickedly sexy spider pumps. I love how the gunmetal spider ornament looks like it’s taking a bite out of your foot and the silver tipped heels (a dagger anyone?) is a nice touch too. Of course, the price is ghastly, but you will literally stand out in the crowd with the 4.5 inch heels.

The Versace for H&M line is set to debut on November 17th. The clothing is distinctly Versace, that is flashy with bold patterns and color. But I have to say I’m less than impressed with the shoes in the collection. I understand that the pink and black patent strap sandals need to be fairly simple to pair with the outfits in the collection (see below) but it would be nice to see something a bit more crazy and signature Versace about them. I’m also hard pressed to think that many gentlemen will go for the pink men’s dress shoes. What about you? Are you interested in anything from the Versace x H&M collection?
