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.

Red Carpet Trend: Cap Toe Pumps

From Christian Louboutin to Salvatore Ferragamo, Prada and Givenchy – cap toe pumps are everywhere this fall and each designer has put their own twist on this classic style.

Celebrities such as Ashley Greene in Ferragamo plus Emma Stone and Mila Kunis both in Christian Louboutin, have picked up on this Fall trend early.

Check out these fabulous cap-toe designs:

Jimmy Choo uses unique textures combined with embellishment and a sleek patent black pointed toe. Choo’s pumps feature snakeskin with layered chains and the Binnis uses leopard print pony with plexi.

The Christian Louboutin Metallip pumps is a modern cap-toe heel featuring a rounded gunmetal toe and grey suede. This stiletto pin pump is already a favourite with Emma Stone and Mila Kunis.

Yves Saint Laurent took their popular Tribtoo and updated the style by added detail stitching and an almond-shaped cap-toe. The teal suede YSL Opyum pump is a beautiful monochromatic pump and one of the only colourful cap-toe pumps I’ve seen this season.

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: Emma Watson

Emma Watson was spotted outside the Ed Sullivan Theater before appearing on the “Late Show With David Letterman.”

Emma wore black patent Christian Louboutin Coroclic wedges with her Balmain Fall 2011 dress. These chunky cork wedges don’t work with her embellished dress.

If she wore this look in the fall, I would have definitely suggested going with the beautiful runway boots.

However, since it’s mid-July a simple black or metallic sandal is her best option.

Shoes Emma Should Have Worn:

Gucci’s new Kinga studded platform sandals are the perfect black sandal. They let the dress shine and complement her embellished dress.

The metallic Jimmy Choo Lance sandals are my favourite choice for Emma. The golden colour and strappy design look so good with her outfit.

I think Emma could pull off these Manolo Blahnik’s Netochka navy satin open toe lace-up sandals perfectly, as the navy blue complements the hem of her dress.

Remember Whitney Port’s beautiful red Manolo’s? His designs are more traditional and they’re refreshing in a sea of chunky platforms.

Pierre Hardy’s metallic buckle Spring/Summer 2011 sandal is a fabulous shoe. I really love this colour paired with her skin tone.

These Christian Louboutin Bianca leather platform pumps are the safest choice. If Emma wanted to stick with a Louboutin, these pumps are a much better option than the cork wedges.
