Celebrities Love…Rupert Sanderson ‘Elba’ Heels

Further proof that Spring 2013 is all about the single sole: Rupert Sanderson’s ‘Elba’ pumps, the latest object of the red-carpet set’s affection.

These four-inch stilettos by the London-based cobbler have been spotted everywhere this fall, from Lea Michelle’s nude calfskin rendition at Marie Claire’s Hollywood Dinner to the nectarine shade picked by both Emma Stone and Bella Heathcote for press events in New York and Los Angeles in early December.

Leslie Mann and Zoe Saldana were also on the same wavelength when they went with a burnt gold version to accompany two standout looks—Pucci’s sheer black cutout dress for Leslie and, for Zoe, a royal blue frock by Preen—at awards season honors these past two weeks.

With its elegant, curvilinear sides and slightly rounded point toe, the Elba is a stylist’s dream—its classic shape makes it easy to pair with anything from a Jil Sander peplum skirt to racer-striped Rag & Bone jeans.

Plus, the simplicity of the Elba’s silhouette allows for more risk-taking for its surface; I’d love to see a fall-winter version in oxblood crushed velvet or a turquoise-tone lizard skin for resort.

After a few more seasons, could the Elba join the hallowed ranks of Chanel ballet flats, the Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps and Manolo Blahnik’s BB heels?

Celebrities Love…Prada Floral Tote

Prada bags are always a hit with celebrities, no matter what we think of the collection.

Miuccia Prada surprises us each season, and it looks like the bag of the moment is the eye-catching classic Prada black leather structured Spazzolato tote with a floral patchwork design, which was the most significant piece of the collection.

Miranda Kerr was the latest celeb to be spotted carrying this bag yesterday whilst running errands in New York City wearing a Balenciaga leather jacket, Nobody Denim jeans and Tabitha Simmons boots; she follows a pregnant Lily Cooper and Jessica Alba, who is always an earlier adopter when it comes to the latest It bags.

I’d be lying if I said I loved the bag as it’s not really my style.

Is this bag on your wish list?

Celebrities Love…Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ Pumps

Recently, celebs just can’t get enough of the Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps.

My first impression of this pump was that it’s a simple everyday heel, but Jimmy Choo have made them available in every colour so that they are now like eye candy for your feet.

The slick, feminine pointy pump just this week alone has been worn by Jessica Biel – twice, in two different colours – and Cheryl Cole.

Other celebs who have fallen in love with the classic, comfortable, stylish pumps include Brooklyn Decker, Thandie Newton, Amy Adams, Minka Kelly, Audrina Patridge, Rachel Adams and many more… the list is endless.

If you are looking to up your shoe game, check out Jimmy Choo UK or Jimmy Choo US for these lust-worthy heels, which are available in red, electric blue, navy, shocking pink, metallic green, nude, orange and a lace-covered pair created in collaboration with Rob Pruitt, all at a very reason price point.

Wear them to give casual weekend looks a shot of glamour, or as the fabulous partner to an evening look.

Celebrities Love…Floral Crowns

Back in September during New York Fashion Week, Alexa Chung and a group of FROWers took to their front row seats at Anna Sui’s Spring 2013 show wearing floral crowns.

This could have kick-started the recent celebrity crush for floral crowns.

In the last five days, we’ve seen three celebs work this look – which we usually associate with spring weddings – on the red carpet this fall.

Alexa’s crown helps give a girlie innocence to her look. Pixie Lott’s provides a pop of colour for her D&G black gown. Delta Goodrem’s complements her pretty pink Dior dress, while Kate Waterhouse’s floral crown just looks all kinds of awkward and not very well thought out.

While all these ladies are sporting flowing locks, floral crowns work just as well, if not better, on those with pixie cuts or braided updos.

Who gets this trend right?
