If the 2012 Oscars had an award for best bridal look, I would like to give it to Gwyneth Paltrow. This white Tom Ford dress and cape are simply stunning and makes me want to renew my vows all over again. I like that the dress is conservative in terms of how much skin is exposed yet the cut is very sleek, clean, and modern. The cape is also a daring choice to aware of the red carpet (or alter for the bride), but so practical if the weather is nippy outside. Gwyneth paired the dress with glittery gold Koko shoes by Jimmy Choo (the suede version is available for pre-order at Nordstroms for $1150. Tell me, what did you think about this look?
In 2011, shoe designer Brian Atwood continued to be one of the top designers of choice on the red carpet. Atwood’s appropriately dubbed shoe, the ‘Maniac’, has everyone going bananas over them and he launch a (relatively) cheaper diffusion line of shoes called with much success. For all these reasons, Atwood’s got our pick for shoe designer of the year.
On a side note, Saks Fifth Avenue has a number of pairs of B by Brian Atwood shoes (including the boot above) at over 70% off and in the upper hundred dollar range. We were surprised to find many popular sizes still available but are sure it won’t last long.
By now, we’ve grown accustomed to Lady Gaga’s creative fashion choices. From her sky high platforms, to her heel-less shoes and meat shoes, we didn’t think that Lady Gaga could gives us anymore kicks in the shoe department. Yet, Lady Gaga managed to get our pick for Craziest Shoe Celebrity of the Year by having her shoes censored on national TV. As a guest judge for American Idol, Lady Gaga wore these plastic heels shaped in the form of a male apparatus and gave her little monsters another eyeful.

BeachMint has added another line to it’s group. It started with JewelMint with Kate Bosworth October 2010, then added StyleMint, a collection of t-shirts with the Olsen girls in July 2011, BeautyMint with Jessica Simpson in October 2011 and now Rachel Bilson has joined the group with ShoeMint, which went live not long ago.
Rachel and her stylist Nichole Chavez are the stylists, Steve Madden is the production guy. I don’t know if it will be only Steve Madden shoes or if there will be shoes he licenses – which is a huge spectrum of choices.
This is what the rest of the debut line looks like.
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?
