Obsession du Jour: the futuristic shoe designed by architect Zaha Hadid in a collaboration with United Nude (another architect-turned-shoe designer). Made from metallic chromed vinyl rubber and fiberglass, these shoes are built to last!
While I’m working at E! out in the LA office, I thought it was a good time to explore LA fashion. I mean the land of red carpets must have some spectacular style somewhere, right?
One shoe designer has already caught the eye of Hollywood actresses and his name is Jerome C. Rousseau.
Some of my favorite looks are above and they can all be easily paired with an LBD to a fitted pair of DL1961s. What I especially love are all the little details - little studs, glitter on the heels or toes, or a graphic belt across the top of a bootie.
Now if only shoes were as easy to store as folding a t-shirt…
True to nude Louboutins for all skin colors - I love this!
Christian Louboutin is introducing a capsule collection of heels that promises to elongate your legs by matching the color of your skin.
Five classic Louboutin styles have been re-imagined in five shades ranging from a fair blush to rich chestnut, which aim to ‘closely match the color of a customer’s skin tone’.
'They disappear like magic and become a fluid extension of her legs, as in a sketch, elongating the silhouette,' said Mr Louboutin.
And now, the Kurt Geiger shoe chandelier… you’re argument is invalid.
File this under nothing better to report: if you have a cool £70,000 lying around with nothing better to purchase, then may I recommend a pair of platinum stilettos by House of Borgezie. It that price tag is too high, fret not - they can always be made into yellow gold for a mere £60,000.
Comparing NYC to LA is like comparing apples to oranges. While we love to hate on LA, there is some fine shopping out here. Dare I say I love it more than I love NYC? Yep, and I’ll go on public record as well and here’s a little example of why…
Miss L Fire is a cute British line that just their first brick-and-mortar shop in Los Feliz. Previously only available on-line, this store has make-up, jewelry, and clothing but the real stars are the shoes.
This line has something for everyone - wedges reminiscent of Dolce & Gabbana, pumps with more pompenstance than Prada, Cinderella slingbacks (and they come in red!) and for all the polished rockers, a sandal with a blue swallow on the front.
Walk in with sad soles and leave with happy feet.
There’s no place like “gnome” when it’s supporting your foot. Seen at Milan Fashion Week, these "When In Gnome" heels will let everyone know that a gnome’s underground treasure can simply be a fabulous pair of shoes.

This will be the new trend in shoes for Fall 2013 thanks to Mui Mui - glitter on the bottom of heels.
I know everyone says how great the weather is in LA, but those people must not have an affinity for kick-ass rain boots. Don’t get me wrong, I love the west coast sun shine (when the sun actually comes out) but I’m a little sad to miss the NYC summer rain and the chance to wear any of the above:
