I love the Couture season. There aren’t that many fashion houses who are making Couture Collections anymore, but the collections presented are beautiful. My favorite is the Armani Prive collection. In a word, the collection can best be describe as color. The shoes are saturated with color, the clothes look like liquid color. Let’s look at the shoes featured in the Armani Prive collection this season.
The Iron Man 2 world premiere in Hollywood brought out several stars. I can’t wait to see the movie. I have a thing for Robert Downey Jr. Gweneth Paltrow always wears interesting outfits. I find Scarlet Johansson interesting too. Let’s see who wore what.
Scarlet wearing Armani Prive. The dress. I think this was a good choice for her.
The shoes. Love every part of them. Don’t love the self tanner.
Gweneth Paltrow wearing Georgio Armani. The outfit.
The shoes are Gianvito Rossi Sandals. They are nice, but not as distinctive as other things she has worn.
She did wear a beautiful pair of ear rings that I wouldn’t mind having in my collection.
Come to think of it, so did Scarlet.
Susan and Robert Downey did a matching thing. Both wore black and red. Cute in a prom-ish sort of way.
Here are a few other outfits and shoes that were nice, but I didn’t have the patience to search the designers. I must be getting old because I have no idea who half these actresses are.
Leslie Bibb and Sam Rockwell.
Leslie’s shiny gold metalic platform peeptoes.
Helena Mattsson about to unleash the girls in blue satin. I hope she didn’t wave to anyone.
Helena’s shoes. More shiny metalic.
Michelle Monaghan in Derek Lam
The Lam shoes. They are right off the catwalk.
Olivia Munn in Herve Leger
Her shoes. Nice pewter color.
There are a few things that I notice in these photos. 1) Metallic is not going away this season, 2)Neither are peeptoes. 3) Gwyneth sure has long legs.
We have seen a few of the shoes that were a part of the Haute Couture shows last week. Newyorkmag.com put together a slideshow of couture shoes, including these beautiful heels from Armani Prive.
New York’s High Line Street Style from style.com.
So, New Yorkers, put your best shopping outfit on and hit High Line!
Don’t you love Cannes? Eleven days of style and red carpet fashion. Oh Yeah, and films. Here are just a few of the shoes seen on the red carpet.
These shoes have been a hit with those who don’t want to be seen as playing it safe. The trouble is that they have been seen everywhere. Variations of this shoe have been seen on Madonna, Victoria Beckham, Kerry Washington (twice) and Isabelle Huppert.
One of the reasons I love Cannes is because it truly has an international attitude. The women don’t have that odd wax lip thing going on. The mature women don’t look like they have a Kabuki mask on. They have allowed themselves to age gracefully. Right now, Isabelle and Robin Wright Penn are my heros.
I Love, Love, Love the way Isabelle made an odball dress work with these shoes. Isabelle Huppert in Louis Vuitton Fall Collection 2009.
Kerry Washington at the Amend Charity Luncheon, Cannes 2009. Kerry wore a gold version of this shoe.
Asia Argento in Armani Prive
Charlotte Gainsbourg wore some amazing Balenciaga Heels. I have tried to get a large photo, but I am a techno dork, for which I appologize.
Sarah Marshall wore Sergio Rossi’s coil heel. Do you love these or what?? I didn’t think they were available yet.
Bae Doo-na from Air Dolls wore Steve Madden Gladiator Flats at a daytime press conference. She wore a gorgeous Doir dress later that night. (I will include the dress just because she looks so great in it. ) I love a girl who goes from Steve Madden to Dior.
Ya gotta include Phoebe.

It is that time again, yes. Paris fashion week for the couture labels. Oo la la.
It wasn’t my favorite collection this time around. A little on the snoozy side. Couture is where you can really go for it, you know? And these… well, mostly not so much with the going for it.
Armani Privé did some variations on this d’Orsay pump.
I’m not terribly impressed. It’s nice and all, but a little *yawn* for a couture show.
Though, this combo of dress and shoes was a knock-out.
Chanel was also feeling the sparkly appliqué trend.
What? Oh… sorry… dozed off there. My head must have hit the desk.
Let’s see… I’m still nodding off over blah beige numbers from Christian Lacroix (left, which makes the models look like they’ve got coral sprouting from their ankles) and Elie Saab (right, which seriously interests me in absolutely zero ways… zero).
Can Givenchy wake me up?
Wow! No! In fact, those look disturbingly like hospital-wear or slippers or something. Something that’s NOT going to make me more alert.
Valentino? Nope. Any shoe whose separated-at-birth twin is one of those hideous shell-covered mirrors doesn’t wake me up. It just makes me want to sleep through the tackiness.
Jean Paul Gaultier perked me up a little bit. Sure, the structured, mostly-monochromatic thing isn’t necessarily brand new for him, but he did some interesting amendments with more feminine flow and flashes of color, and you know I love me some shoes that come with their own built-in fishnet hosiery.
But, not surprisingly, it was John Galliano who gave me the jolt of caffeine I really needed. His Dior shoe (it was just the one shoe, really, but in lots of different colors) is fabulously rococo, which only made it that much better to see him bringing in things like Delft tiles and Renaissance portraiture and even a cracked-out Little Bo Peep number. Love!
I suppose I will just have to sigh and throw my hands up at this season’s couture shoes and hope for better luck next time.
