…besides the peacock shoes featured by Jitterbugbaby, may I recommend these definitely not for the faint of heart Azzedine Alaia sandals?
They’re printed genuine snakeskin T-straps with two bold silver buckles and 5-inch wooden heels. I don’t think you could make more of a statement or more than a dramatic entrance than with these fierce heels. Yes, they’re about $1000 or so, but that’s beside the point, n’est ce pas?
Azzedine Alaia is a Tunisian-born and educated fashion designer. He studied sculpture as well as fashion design, and worked for Dior, Guy Laroche and Thierry Mugler before giving his first show in New York City (1982). His designs are remarkable through their sensuality and flair for the dramatic. Recently, I’ve noticed a comeback of his shoes in the fashion boutiques and high-end department stores–and when they look like this, all I can say is, bravo!
