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.

Which pair would you pick for Keira?

    It made me laugh that you started this segment. You really hate black pumps!
    I’d go the NK’s

  2. Saara March 31, 2011 at 07:21 #

    All the options are beautiful, but I would choose Miu Miu’s with this dress.

  3. Ayesha March 31, 2011 at 07:18 #

    i think, Miu Miu.

    I like the idea for this section too!

    The shoe and hair segments make thoughtful additions to the site.

    all of them are so beautiful! why we never get to see these little works of art? loving the feature 😉

    Miu Miu – def. best with this dress – would’ve complemented the embellishments on the dress without overloading it. Versace would’ve worked quite well. Tabitha S’s – too “strappy” for this dress. Kirkwoods – way too much/heavy – would’ve been a ruffle overload.

    • smolls March 31, 2011 at 00:35 #

      Completely agree on all counts.

  8. Tania March 30, 2011 at 19:18 #

    The Miu Mui’s!

  9. wilwarin March 30, 2011 at 18:25 #

    kirkwoods or tabithas both are perfect although i’m in love with kirkwoods 🙂

    God knows 90% of celebrities only wears Brian Atwood or YSL tribs or Loubotin. But I really like those Nicholas Kirkwoods. I’d trade my day being a woman to wear them.

  11. Kaylie March 30, 2011 at 15:26 #

    I like the Kirkwoods the best, but I think they would have been a bit “much” for this look. I would go with Miu Miu or Tabitha.

    • maria March 30, 2011 at 18:08 #

      totally agree.

  12. gopika March 30, 2011 at 15:02 #

    Miu Miu ones would have looked great

  13. samaira March 30, 2011 at 14:57 #

    Miu Miu !!!! I think the detailing on the heel of miu miu sandal would have picked up on the detailing on the dress.

  14. dee March 30, 2011 at 14:55 #

    I think the Tabitha Simmons or the Miu Miu goes with the dress.

  15. Iris March 30, 2011 at 14:55 #

    either the Miu Miu or the Tabitha. the Versace’d be boring and the Kirkwood’d be too fussy for this dress.

  16. Megan March 30, 2011 at 14:54 #

    Nicholas Kirkwood for sure! LOVE those shoes!

  17. ClaraAnne March 30, 2011 at 14:51 #

    I’ve been stalking those miu miu’s on net-a-porter so they’re my favourite! But the versace would have worked to give the outfit a modern edge too.

    • Clover March 30, 2011 at 21:47 #

      Agreed. I love this feature, long may it reign!

  19. Courteney March 30, 2011 at 14:27 #

    Nicholas Kirkwood for the win!

  20. Luis Santos March 30, 2011 at 14:16 #

    The most beautiful are the kirkwood ones but didn’t fit Keira style, so the right choice should be Tabitha.

    • Alina March 30, 2011 at 14:54 #

      100% agree.

    I don’t think any of those heels would have worked because all light pink would have washed her out. How about white or silver heels???
