Celebrities Love… Ankle Boots

What is it with celebs and their ankle boots these days?

Don’t get me wrong, I think their fab. But really, for the red carpet?

Especially when wore with a short dress, these boots do a girl’s legs no favour (take note, Leona and Lo).

Ankle boots make the legs appear shorter than they actually are so opt for something more delicate for optimum height.

Nobody wants to appear to have cankles.

I know that Alexa is adored for her tom-boy style, but I’d love to see her in something more feminine on the red carpet.

I love the rock chick look but there’s a time and a place.

A great pair of ankle boots should be worn with jeans or leggings not a gorgeous dress.

Bring back some glamour and sophistication to the red carpet and leave those ankle boots at home ladies!

We did our best to find some ankle boots for every budget. See what you think.

    Seriously, those ankle boots with Leona’s dress (and corset-belt… *siiiigh*) are so unflattering.

    Thanks for pointing out those ASOS ankle boots! Although predictably I like the £665 ones best of the three…damn budget.

    Meh. I am still not buying the ankle boots trend. I think they are hideous.
    Also, why would I want to buy Nicholas Kirkwood ankle boots if I can have their delicious edgy sandals?

    Hey nice to see the prices are back! =) They had disappeared so far!! So funnier to drool over a dress and know whether or not to put it in the good ol’ wish-list or on the fantasy-only-list!! “Damn Budget” that’s the word!!
    Though…with or without the price tag, keep loooving the site!! =)
