Sarah Jessica Parker has been promoting Sex and the City 2 this week. She was on the Early Show a couple of days ago wearing a raspberry colored dress with Alexander McQueen sandals.
Hers are bronze, there is a pair available at Nieman Marcus that is titled Oil. Love the color.
Then during the New York Premier she wore a Valentino Couture dress. This collection wasn’t a hit with the critics, but on the red carpet, the dresses are beautiful. I think it will prove to be a popular collection. I have seen dresses from this collection twice so far.
Anyways, Sarah Jessica Parker wore silver gray Ferragamo double platform pumps. Overall, critics think the pumps were too clunky for the light silk dress. I am a little tired of this style of pump, especially double and triple platforms which get into tranny territory with their 6 inch heels. I am surprised SJP didn’t wear a strappy sandal.
I am more than a little surprised she wore these because we have seen Jennifer Lopez, twice, Kate Beckinsale, and Michelle Williams wear these shoes all last month. As one who is known for being first in fashion I thought she would have gone with something never worn on the red carpet before. There was an issue a couple of years ago about a dress that had been worn on the red carpet before. Her stylist should have paid more attention. I couldn’t find an online source for these shoes.
Then for the after party dress SJP went with an Madonna-ish Elie Saab and Kicholas Kirkwood shoes.
She also wore them last night to the Letterman Show. I like them with the second outfit over the Elie Saab dress.
These shoes are available through Browns Fashions £665.00 .
I couldn’t locate an US outlet, but I didn’t spend a lot of time searching.
As she spends more and more time promoting the movie, it will be interesting to see what SJP wears.
Carrie Bradshaw may prefer her Manolo Blahniks, Choos, and Louboutins, but the shoes of choice for Sarah Jessica Parker while promoting the SATC2 movie were these Nicholas Kirkwood for Future Collectables pumps. Although these statement shoes with blue podium platforms are sold out, you can email Brown’s Fashion and refer to these Nicholas Kirkwood Lattice pumps to get them when they are available again.

With the three major fall 2010 fashion events, New York, Milan and Paris, concluding, there were a few shoe trends that recurred in several collections. This is what we saw. Mad Men curves are in. Fur is in. Many of the big name fashion houses went with classic investment pieces that were timeless looking. Several of the lesser known houses had some beautiful and interesting pieces. Let’s look at some shoes – that’s why we are all here.
Pointy toe shoes are returning, so dust off your Guess “Carrie” shoes because we will be seeing more pointy toes in the future.
Valentino. There was a flat and a kitten heel also presented in this collection.
While stilettoes were seen, typically if the heel was high - especially boots -then it was a chunky heel. I love the stability chunky heels offer. Can you imagine tottering around in the above Vuitton shoes if the heel was pencil thin?
Erdem – love the print on these boots.
Not many wedges were seen, so I am guessing we will be seeing those phased out over the next couple of years.
Bottega Veneta featured this wedge on all the shoes.
Dries Van Noten. I LOVE this half wedge.
With the retro girly-fication of the styles no tough girl platforms were necessary.
Lanvin (Arguably the best line of the season.)
But lots of platforms were presented.
Christian Louboutin for Phillip Lim
Brian Atwood for Victoria Beckham.
There must have been 10 different colors of this shoe because Mrs. Beckham likes to match her shoes to her dress. These shoes are nice but nothing to hyper-ventilate over. Her dresses were nice, wearable, and pretty.
Over the knee boots will be around for a while. We saw over the knee boots in several presentations. Since this is the fall season, we should not be surprised.
Burberry Prorsum presented some of the season’s favorite boots.
Statement shoes were everywhere.
If you are a chiropractor, you NEED these shoes.
Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte
Chanel. Notice the ice heel.
Chanel’s show, in my opinion was one of the goofiest ideas I think I have ever seen. Uncle Karl shipped a glacier from Sweden to Paris, had it sculpted it for the runway, put it on a swimming pool type platform, then the models walked through about an inch of melting glacier water. He presented some beautiful suits, IF you could see past the heinous fake fur that accompanied these outfits. Global warming, glaciers melting, save the furry animals was the message of this show. Here’s the thing. 1) Lagerfield used more fur in Fendi than virtually any other collection, so why use cheap looking fake fur with Chanel. 2) The carbon footprint of this show was massive and the power it took to present this show could have powered a small country. (Here is where I usually go off on my global-warming-leadership-hypocrasy tirade, but I won’t because you came here to see shoes.)
OK, I rarely look at purses, but I WANT THIS PURSE.
Forgive me for this long post, but there were so many beautiful shoes, and even more beautiful outfits. I wanted to show them all to you but that isn’t possible.
I kept reading about the Nicholas Kirkwood shoes for Rodarte shown in New York being ultra high and made to look like melted candle wax.
I didn’t understand what they were talking about, because this is what I found.
THEN I found these photos. NOW I understand. Here is a close up of the shoes
These have Nicholas Kirkwood’s signature all over them.
