Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Whilst shopping in Brent Cross during the holidays I was shocked to see these Topshop Supreme Extreme platform heels.

The 6.5 inch heels are clearly inspired by the Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ pumps which were the celebrity shoe of 2011, as they were much loved by Victoria Beckham, Lady Gaga and Fan Bingbing.

Now you can try your hand at navigating the streets in these scary looking pumps.

The Daffodile’s would set you back $1,095, but the Supreme Extreme platform pumps only cost $176 from Topshop US and £88 from Topshop International.

I look these pumps and immediately picture long queues at A&E for ankle related injuries.

Would you buy these heels?

The award for most the brand that has most inspired the high-street definitely goes to Miu Miu.

On this occasion it was Topshop who were inspired to create these two-tone black and gold glitter toe-cap pumps.

They are almost identical, but the Miu Miu pumps have a high heel and a gold inside trim to the black on the Topshop pumps.

You can get the Miu Miu heels from Net-A-Porter International, reduced in the sale, for £280 or the Topshop ‘Jamaica’ curved heel frome Topshop US for $110 or Topshop International for £55.

ASOS are known for recreating runway styles at affordable prices.

On this occasion they’ve taken inspiration from Miu Miu’s 40s-inspired collection to create their own midi dress with embellished sleeves.

The dress even has an open back like the runway version we saw on Diane Kruger back in July.

Miu Miu’s dress will set you back $4,105 whereas the ASOS dress cost a mere $154.53.

Whilst browsing Topshop.com I came across a bright pink long-sleeve with a thigh-high dress which looked very familiar.

The dress made me think of Brooklyn Decker as she wore a very similar Michael Kors Resort 2012 dress to the Met Gala back in May.

What are the differences?

Price: The Michael Kors slash gown costs $3,995 from Neiman Marcus whereas the high-street version from Topshop US cost $100 and £50 from Topshop International.

Colour: I prefer the striking neon-pink colour of the Kors gown to the soft pink Topshop version.

The Topshop version also has a crease around the waist, whereas the Michael Kors dress is more appealing with its clean lines.

Walter Steiger’s signature curved heel ‘Oscar’ ankle boots have been worn by the likes of Victoria Beckham, Anna Dello Russo and Linsday Lohan.

Due to celebrities making this these heels so popular that they instantly sold-out, Topshop have created their own version.

Their ‘Pisa’ banana- heeled platforms have the same curved heels, the same suede fabric and the same elasticated side panel.

The Walter Steiger boots would’ve set you back $950, but the Topshop version are available from Topshop US for $245 and Topshop International for £120.

These heels shoes are such a simple design, but it’s the heel which that makes them stand out.
