Celebrity Shoe Swap: Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole was spotted wearing Marc by Marc Jacobs polka dot t-strap wedges to the X-Factor auditions in Chicago.

I completely agree with the Fashion Critic; these wedges were major overkill.

Her attempt to connect the dots from head to toe distracted the attention away from her beautiful Sonia by Sonia Rykiel dress.

Shoes Cheryl Should Have Worn:

Charlotte Olympia’s textured cotton Dolores platform pumps add the right pop of colour to Cheryl’s outfit. They also match the cuteness of her look and her red nail polish.

If Cheryl wanted to stick with a wedge, these black Chloé satin Amanda wooden wedges are a much better option. They’re beautiful and an unexpected choice.

I never thought these Yves Saint Laurent’s black suede and raffia heeled Gipsy sandals would make it on any of my posts. I personally have never been a huge fan of these heels; however, with Cheryl’s outfit they completely work.

Christian Louboutin’s Fine Bretelle slingbacks are a safe and easy fit for Cheryl. They’re a twist on the classic Mary Jane pump featuring a thin strap and slingback.

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: 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!

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley attended the 2011 Jameson Empire Awards in London this week wearing black Jimmy Choo satin pumps.

Keira tends to wear black pumps on the red carpet regardless of the type of dress she’s wearing.

Her black pumps are safe and boring.

Keira’s lovely Rodarte dress needed a blush coloured or dainty heel.

Shoes Keira Should Have Worn

Miu Miu’s crystal-heel satin sandals are embellished perfectly to complement the embellishments on Keira’s dress. I love mixing textures and these satin heels would’ve been ideal for her dress.

The Versace two-tone patent leather pumps are one of my favorite nude pumps this season. It’s hard to find this exact colour. The colour, shape and style make it a great option for Keira. You may remember that Michelle Monaghan wore these same heels this week.

Tabitha Simmons Dana suede sandals are my favorite heels for Keira. They were also the shoe choice for recent BDOTW winner Jennifer Aniston. Had Keira opted for these heels they may have carried the same luck for the British actress too.

The Nicholas Kirkwood suede and ruffle chiffon platform sandals would have complemented the ruching on Keira’s dress. This is a unique choice as Kirkwood’s and Rodarte’s designs work very well together.

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Miranda Cosgrove

Miranda Cosgrove attended the Points Of Light Institute Tribute to former President George H.W. Bush wearing dark grey Stuart Weitzman patent pumps. These heels are distracting and don’t work with her peachy/pink/nude dress.

She needed a nude, blush or pastel coloured shoe.

Shoes Miranda Should Have Worn:

Brian Atwood’s blush coloured Wagner satin peep-toe pumps blend perfectly with Miranda’s outfit. This heel works well because the satin texture on the pump contrasts with the fabric on her dress.

The lilac Pour La Victoire Irina pumps are beautiful and complement the tint of purple featured on Miranda’s dress. This heel is age and event appropriate for Miranda.

Miu Miu’s antique rose leather platform pumps would have saved the day. They’re a much better shoe choice and work with the overall pinkish hue.

The Chrisse Morris nude and metallic bronze tassel pumps are such a fun shoe. If Miranda would have removed her necklace (which doesn’t work either) these heels would have been a unique shoe choice. They’re completely different from her dress but still work since they feature pink, nude and bronze colors.

3 Hot Shoe Designers To Warm Up Your Spring

Sunday marked the first day of spring so that means you can pack your boots away and get ready for sun and sandals. I picked shoes from 3 designers that will create fresh fabulous styles for the season.

Tabitha Simmons shoes are a must-have for anyone’s spring footwear collection. Simmons heels were recently spotted on Teresa Palmer and Jennifer Aniston.

The Tabitha Simmons Drusilla antique rose wedge and the Tabitha Simmons Dyllis praline slingback feature barrel bows, wingtip detailing and long laces. Even with multiple embellishments, the Drusilla wedge still feels delicate and reminds me of an elaborate ballet slipper.

Wedges are a necessity for spring and both of these Yves Saint Laurent wedges were spotted on the Spring 2011 runway. The YSL Trybal suede wedge features three front knots and a knotted ankle cuff. Zoe Saldana was the first actress to debut these heels on the red carpet. Yves Saint Laurent also designed the beautiful gold t-strap YSL Totem leather wedge. I love the thick metallic angled edge on the back of the heel.

Even though Raphael Young follows traditional methods when creating shoes, like making each prototype from stitch to finish, there’s nothing conventional about his designs – they’re edgy and fierce. These eye-catching heels Raphael Young Habaki resin and suede peep-toes have been spotted on Ginnifer Goodwin. If it’s still too cold to make the switch to sandals, check out Young’s panther printed leather boot; it features an ombré acetate heel.
