Spiderweb Heels

Recently several shoe designers have been inspired by spiderwebs.

Arachnophobia or not, these beautiful heels will ensnare major attention.

Christian Louboutin created a crystal embellished web d’Orsay pump in his latest Fall 2011 collection.

Mr Louboutin describes his fascination with spiderwebs in a video interview with CNN saying that his design was influenced by a scientific study on spiders.

Yves Saint Laurent has also been bitten by the spider trend and created a dramatic web wedge.

This heel features many thin suede straps, a metallic gold leather covered wedge and an adorable buckle charm.

Roger Vivier has designed a very original ‘Spider’ sandal in his Fall 2011 collection.

This satin heel is available in two color combinations; pink or black & gold.

Even though we will have to wait for the ‘Spider’ to be available in retail, model Jessica Stam has already worn these heel to the MET Gala.

Kirsten Dunst was spotted at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival wearing Jimmy Choo ‘Ontario’ strappy suede sandals. These sandals have web-like straps that wrap around the ankle.

Charlize Theron was also spotted recently wearing Dior Paradis sandals with a spiderweb-like detail.

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Kirsten Dunst

Kirsten Dunst was spotted at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival closing ceremony wearing vintage Valentino black pumps.

Your response from Kirsten’s last post overwhelming agreed that she picked the wrong heels.

Kirsten’s dress already had enough going; her heels should have been minimal and/or metallic.

Shoes Kirsten Should Have Worn:

Jimmy Choo’s Lotus slingback sandals are perfection and they are my favorite choice. The Swarovski crystal appliqué compliments her dress and her jewels.

The metallic silver Jimmy Choo India sandals are the safest choice for Kirsten. They’re classic and simple. Blake Lively understands when a simple shoe is need; she paired a very similar Louboutin heel with her glamourous Chanel dress at the MET Gala.

Manolo Blahnik’s Hangisi satin pumps are so decadent. These dark grey heels feature a crystal buckle and contrast beautifully with her outfit.

If Kirsten wanted to stay with a pump, these Brian Atwood Debra slingbacks are a much better option. Emma Roberts paired Atwood metallic pumps with her Chanel dress which kept her look young and fresh.

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Astrid Berges-Frisbey

Astrid Berges-Frisbey was spotted at the “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” London Premiere wearing black Rupert Sanderson ‘New’ Estelle platform sandals.

I agree with the majority of the readers’ comments from the earlier post that these heels look horrible with her outfit!

Astrid should get a new stylist.

Shoes Astrid Should Have Worn:

Alexandre Birman’s cut-out python sandals are a nice contrast to Astrid’s dress. The taupe leather trim ties the pink accent colours together.

A nude or pastel coloured heel would have worked best and these Versace patent leather sandals are my favourite choice for Astrid. They’re simple, beautiful and a perfect match.

Jimmy Choo’s metallic rose ‘Lance’ sandals are another fabulous option. These sandals feature multiple straps but look delicate on the red carpet as displayed by Jennifer Lawrence.

If Astrid wanted to stick to a Rupert Sanderson shoe, the ‘Seville’ pumps are a lovely pink shoe. These were the first pumps that came to mind when I saw her outfit.

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Ashley Tisdale

Ashley Tisdale was spotted at the “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” World Premiere wearing a Brian Lichtenberg one shoulder red lace dress with suede Yves Saint Laurent Tribtoo platform pumps.

These heels are too bulky for her bright red lace dress.

Shoes Ashley Should Have Worn

Acne’s Sunset braid-detailed brushed-leather sandals feature two red acetate straps and are possibly the perfect heels for Ashley. They’re completely different from the bland Tribtoo’s she wore.

Black heels would have been too heavy with Ashley’s dress but these brown Nicholas Kirkwood peep-toe platform pumps work quite well. The exposed red peep-toe help tie her whole look together.

Christian Louboutin Marechale champagne satin sandals are a beautiful shoe choice. The lace-up detail and crossover straps are lovely and don’t detract from the rest of her outfit.

These Giambattista Valli leather ankle cuff sandals heels have leather laces and a metal plaque on the ankle cuff. Even with the multiple embellishments it’s still a unique and fun shoe for Ashley.

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick was spotted at the Time 100 Gala last night in safe and boring black patent platform pumps.

Her sexy Zac Posen dress needed to be worn with a playful and colourful heel.

Shoes Anna Should Have Worn

These bright pink Miu Miu lace-up booties would have completely changed Anna’s look. These heels are a risky choice, but I think it’s the kind of risk Anna needs to take to stand out when sharing the red carpet with bombshell Blake Lively.

The bold Pierre Hardy ostrich blue peep-toe pumps are a beautiful shoe choice. They perfectly contrast with the metallic sheen on her dress.

Chloé’s suede-trimmed transparent acetate pumps are some of the most darling pumps this season and my favourite choice for Anna. Ever since the adorable Elle Fanning was spotted wearing them for a feature in Interview Magazine they’ve been on my wish list!

The Jimmy Choo Quiet patent-leather pumps are a perfect match. These pumps are one of Choo’s classic styles and the colour makes them an exceptionally hot shoe.

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson was spotted at ITV Studio’s for her guest performance on The Alan Titchmarsh Show. She wore Christian Louboutin 4A python-suede platform booties. These booties are fabulous, but make her look a bit stumpy. Given the length of Jennifer’s dress a pump or cutout sandal would have elongated her legs.

Shoes Jennifer Should Have Worn

I normally wouldn’t suggest this heel because I think certain Yves Saint Laurent styles (like the Tribtoo) have been been overworn. However with Jennifer’s dress, I think these suede YSLTribute platform sandals would have worked perfectly.

The Alexander McQueen Russet tan pumps would have been a safe and ideal choice. This is a beautiful pump and a go-to staple for spring.

Camilla Skovgaard’s cutout sandal is a fun & fabulous taupe heel. They feature buckles, studs and tubular straps. They’re also one of Skovgaard’s most popular designs from the spring collection and such a show-stopper.

The metallic Jimmy Choo Cosmic platform pumps are my favorite alternative shoes for Jennifer. The patent finish is unique and this heel is overall a perfect match!
