It’s time for another installment of “Shoe Showdown”. Our question, as always, is who wore the shoe better? Today’s contestants are Rachel McAdams, Eva Mendes and Jennifer Aniston – all sporting the ‘Alex’ wedge espadrilles from Stuart Weitzman.
Every year just before the Oscars Stuart Weitzman opens an Oscar Styling Suite, this year it is in the London Hotel in West Hollywood. It does hair blow outs, make up application, offers chocolate treats, colonics (only kidding on this), and red carpet shoes. It also gives Stuart Weitzman the opportunity to chat with stylists and celebrities, and promote his shoes in general.
I am a huge SW fan. His shoes are entry level designer prices – about $300 – , high quality, and he is prolific with about 700 shoe designs each year so it is not often you see someone else wearing your shoes.
Here are some of the shoes shown. All are beautiful.
My second favorite pair
My favorite pair. Do you love the crystals on the heel?
Since 2002, Stuart Weitman designed a pair of million dollar shoes for the Oscars, then offered them to one of the nominated women. They were usually auctioned off and the money donated to a charity. In 2009 he decided to not make a pair of these shoes because the recession was taking it’s toll on everyone. I don’t think he is designing a pair this year because I haven’t seen anything about them. If anyone knows if he is making a pair of these shoes let us know.

Sweaty jellies have never been my footwear of choice, but Stuart Weitzman’s newly launched jelly shoes collection, with design flares like crystals, multi-colored stones and chic hardware, have me revisiting my stance, if only because the bright, colorful shades appeals to my sense of aesthetics on this dreary March afternoon. The collection retails from $98 to $198.
What about you? Would you wear stylishly made jellies?

I’m not one for following every color trend that comes along.
As I push on closer and closer to (age) 40, I tend to stick with those colors that have proved to be complimentary to me over the years. Luckily, pretty much anything in the blue color family works for me.
Plus, with something close to an even zillion re-tweets last week of Pantone’s Color of 2010, this particular color trend seemed worth mentioning.
It will certainly be interesting to see if fashion and shoe trends fall in line with this prediction. It makes sense given the current resurgence of 80′s-inspired fashion that several of the staple colors from that decade, including turquoise and fuschia, would make an appearance. I also recall seeing a significant increase in both turqoise and fuschia sandals last spring and summer, so maybe this is less of a prediction than an acknowledgement of an emerging trend.
So, here it is:
15-5519 Turquoise, an inviting, luminous hue, as the color of the year for 2010. Combining the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green, Turquoise evokes thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a languorous, effective escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of wellbeing.
Luckily for me, I already have my turquoise for the year – care of a few great sales last spring:
Guess ‘Chiquita” & LAMB watch
Sandals by ‘Hot in Hollywood’
Report Signature’s ‘Dita’
Okay, I’ll admit, the last is more of a faboulous sky blue, but what’s the point if all of my shoes are the exact same shade?
Anyway, while I doubt any of these shoes from my collection are still available anywhere but the retail aftermarket, there are still a huge number of fantastic turquoise options for you to choose from right now.
And, for the slightly more budget-conscious:
And, for the extreme frugalista:
So, will you be on the hunt for the perfect turquoise footwear this year?
