Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.
