PVC Spring 2012 Footwear Trend

PVC was a surprising trend on the Spring 2012 runways.

We saw models wearing PVC at Dolce & Gabbana and Richard Nicoll, but it was also a very noticeable trend in footwear too.

This material has helped create several signature heels from 3.1 Phillip Lim to Manolo Blahnik for Richard Nicoll.

PVC looks futuristic and allows people to see your skin – spring’s best accessory.

Now it’s combined with bright patent leather, laces, studs and bows creating amazing shoes.

The key to pulling off this trend is an immaculate pedicure and clear nail polish.

Will you wear PVC shoes this spring?

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana wore black and white Giuseppe Zanotti ruched chiffon peep-toe platform pumps to the Gen Art’s Fresh Faces In Fashion Event.

It’s very rare that white shoes ever look good on the red carpet.

Zoe carried a dark metallic Judith Leiber clutch which made the awkward shoes stand out even more. Black heels would have worked with Zoe’s accessories and her Antonio Berardi blush coloured dress.

Shoes Zoe Should Have Worn:

Gianvito Rossi’s satin sandal is from the Fall 2011 Carbon collection. This is my favorite choice for Zoe; they’re beautifully simple.

These Jimmy Choo Dome suede strappy heels feature diamanté embellishment and work so well with Zoe’s accessories. Kelly Rowland showed us how fabulous they look on the red carpet.

If Zoe wanted to stick with a Zanotti design the black satin d’Orsay peep-toe platform pumps are a much better choice. There’s also a patent version but I prefer the satin texture with her dress.

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes wore Proenza Schouler suede Snub-Nose ankle boots to the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. What a sight for sore eyes – it’s no surprise Katie won the “Worst Shoes Award” for the night.

Hannah summed it up best in the comment section: “There aren’t even words to describe the atrocity that is those shoes. They are awful, they look like something Pocahontas would have worn on a bad day.”

A great example of a celebrity who pulled off these boots over and over again is Olivia Palermo.

Shoes Katie Should Have Worn:

Nicholas Kirkwood’s platform loafer embellished with a kiltie fringe is one of his hottest designs from his fall collection. This shoe is trendy and appropriate for her Azzedine Alaïa dress.

Katie, let me introduce to you the basic and beautiful black patent pump. Whenever in doubt please grab these rather than those boots. Rupert Sanderson’s Troy pumps are shaped so wonderfully – a safe and much better shoe choice.

Tabitha Simmons Bailey suede heels work so well with Katie’s outfit. Julianne Moore recently wore these in leopard.

Azzedine Alaïa’s suede cutout heels are the most obvious shoe choice for Katie. She couldn’t have gone wrong with these and Alaïa’s heels are amazing.

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel paired Christian Louboutin nude patent Simple pumps with an Alice + Olivia one shoulder black and white dress at the FOX All-Star Party.

I agree with many of the comments from the original post; why the nude shoes?

Shoes Zooey Should Have Worn:

Oscar de la Renta’s black satin slingback sandals are simple and elegant. This heel is from the Fall 2011 collection and would’ve been a lovely choice for Zooey.

If Zooey wanted to stick with a pump the satin Brian Atwood ‘Teodora’ is a fabulous alternative. These pumps would have worked much better than the nude Louboutin heels.

Christian Dior’s Spring 2011 heels complement the embroidered taffeta top on Zooey’s dress. These statement heels would have transformed her outfit from blah to Ooh la la.

Manolo Blahnik’s ‘Nipotta’ heels match Zooey’s personality and her dress. The ‘Nipotta’ is from Blahnik’s Fall 2011 collection and feature a metallic silver tie.

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Dannii Minogue

Danni Minogue was spotted backstage before taking her judges chair at ‘Australia’s Got Talent’ wearing a J’Aton Couture dress with nude Sergio Rossi ‘Cachet’ platform pumps.

We all adored her vintage French lace J’Aton Couture dress, but many of you weren’t so happy with her choice of heels.

Shoes Danni Should Have Worn:

If Danni wanted to wear a pump; these Nicholas Kirkwood satin heels are fabulous. The red signature island platform brings her look together.

Jimmy Choo’s Lance sandals have become the go-to evening heel – I also suggested them to Emma Watson. They’re elegant and look beautiful.

The Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2011 sandals feature navy satin cross-straps and black studs. The tri-colours paired with her dress make a unique shoe choice.

Viktor & Rolf’s Spring 2011 t-strap sandal is playful and perfect for Danni’s event. I love the zebra sequined heel.

The light grey Cesare Paciotti platform sandals complement the red lace. The crystal embellishment and diamante detailing match the beauty of her outfit.

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Carey Mulligan

Carey Mulligan was spotted on her way to the Junior Spring Benefit wearing Yves Saint Laurent “Trib too” platform pumps.

These pumps weighed her Valentino dress down. She really could have used a splash of colour; especially since it’s summer.

Shoes Carey Should Have Worn:

Nicholas Kirkwood’s suede peep-toe platform pumps would have worked with Carey’s entire look – even her pink lip colour. The details in Kirkwood’s latest Fall 2011 collection are exquisite and this pump features a kiltie fringe.

I love the wooden platform on these bright orange Casadei suede open toe pumps. They’re completely different from the boring heels Carey wore.

Rupert Sanderson’s Fabia multi-colour python pumps are stunning! These heels are my favourite choice as they add both colour and excitement to her outfit.

Alaïa’s metallic pewter leather sandals complement Carey’s metallic clutch. Even though they’re heavily embellished with studs, they match the level of detail on her laser cut Valentino dress.
