Newcomer shoe designer Camilla Skovgaard is tops on my watch-list of up and coming designers. What I like about her work is that each shoe is edgy, made of quality materials, and very unique. She takes boring, normal looking platforms, peep tose, or pumps and puts a ton of details (lace, skins, structure, etc) into her work. If you don’t believe me, take a look at the python sandals and striped peep-toe from Shopbop below.
I wasn’t surprised to learn from the official website that even though Skovgaard only launched her shoe collection in 2006 (prior to that she designed for the Skeikh’s wives and daughters), her shoe designs have already won her several accolades, the line is carried by top department stores like Saks, and celebrities have been seen with her designs.
This brings me to the latest shoe showdown. Vanessa Hudgens, Halle Berry, and Cindy Crawford were all seen wearing Camilla Skovgaard’s S8001 sandal, which is being sold in black for $549 at Endless or toffee at Shopbop for $385. It was difficult for me to decide which celebrity accessorized S8001 the best as all are so wonderfully dressed, including the amazingly youthful and healthy looking Cindy Crawford and yummy mommy Halle Berry, but my vote is going with Vanessa Hudgens today. Her choice of a sherbet colored dress with black belt really draw my attention to the shoes. Who do you think won Camilla Skovgaard’s S8001 shoe showdown?
The MTV Movie Awards were held over the weekend and since the weather is warm in LA, it was a perfect time to showcase minis and shoes on the red carpet.
First up is my favorite outfit of the night. By the end of this post, I would like to hear yours. It’s worn by Sienna Miller, who wore a sparkling emerald green dress from her own line with these fabulous Nicholas Kirkwood platforms from the Spring 2009 collection. Now, the gold sandals I couldn’t find anywhere, but if you love the style, Luisaviaaroma.com has the Kirkwood purple suede version for $664 on their site.
Ashley Tisdale went for lots of strappy in these Paul and Joe Sister ‘Gypsy’ wedge boots from the Spring/Summer 09 collection.
In the Jimmy Choo corner, Kristen Bell wore Jimmy Choo Studded ‘Blaze’ Sandals, which are $895 at Saks.
Vanessa Hudgens opted for Jimmy Choo ‘Riv’ Ethnic Sandals, on sale for $835 at Saks, with her gold dress. One thing I’ve noticed is that I may not always like the dresses Vanessa wears, but she really rocks the accessories. The MTV Movie Awards as an excellent example of this. The dress looks a little too much like satin sheets. I do, however, think the Choos were an excellent choice along with the jewelry.
Not to be overshown by Jimmy Choo, Louboutin also left his footprint on the red carpet. Two noteworthy shoes were the Christian Louboutin ‘Sometimes’ boot worn by Lauren Conrad.
Leighton Meester of Gossip Girls wore a mesh dress from designer Emilio de la Morena. This outfit is a huge departure from the character she plays on TV and while I love the dress, I wish she had paired it with a more spring-like shoe. Her purple suede shoes are the ‘Brie’ style from Brian Atwoods’ FW09 collection and just seems a bit too heavy for the weather.
The most interesting selection and most easily recognized shoes worn by a celebrity during the MTV awards goes to Twilight star Kristen Stewart. The Converse All-Star High Sneakers would not have been my choice, but according to JustJared, she twisted her ankle so I’m glad she opted for comfort and health over fashion.
