    It came down between the Au Hameau and the Demoisel for me–the first because of the embellishment and the second because of the color. I’ve decided to go with the Demoisel, I think it will be a great pop of color against the pale coral gown (also best to go with a simple shoe against a textured gown) and will complement your skintone as well.
    Very excited for this, FC! Much love <3

      Thank you..xx

    I had to choose the Au Hameau as it was the most delicate and I thought that would complement the color of your dress. I did like the Au Palace, but felt the heel was too clunky, and while I loved the aqua and purple shoes, I thought a sandle would be best. Soooo, by process of elimination and my 1st hunch, Au Hameau it was! LOL

    CORPUS <3 😀

  4. Aelita January 22, 2013 at 23:09 #

    I LOVE “Flo”…

  5. Marybeth January 22, 2013 at 22:55 #

    I like the Au Hameau or the Au Palace.
    Maybe somewhere in the back of my pea-brain I just can’t get over how fantastic your Berardi aqua and silver look was, so I am thinking silver-silver-silver!
    But I also like something that is very evening-wear festive and those fit that vision best.

  6. TeaAtTwo January 22, 2013 at 22:48 #

    Au Hameau and Au Palace are the only real contenders for me. They’re all amazing shoes but those two are the only ones that elegant and fancy enough to wear with a gown at the biggest annual ceremony of year.

  7. Rita January 22, 2013 at 21:45 #

    Au Palace, no competition. I myself love a pop of color but the more colorful shoes are very heavy looking and the colors don’t match with the light simple coral dress. The contrast between the colors of the shoes and the dress would be too much. Au Palace is a simple shoe with an interesting heel to bring some oscar glamour to the styling. The jewellery will bring the pop of color 🙂 so exited for you, Oscar day is my favorite day of the year!

  8. Faellie January 22, 2013 at 21:25 #

    Against the choice of the sharply-asymetric gown, I think any of the RM shoes except the Dedis white are the wrong shape (shame as I would otherwise rather like the green of Demoisel).

    As the Louboutins will all have that flash of red sole to contrast with the pink, and anything more would be overkill, the best choice from them is Au Palace.

    So I’d be happy with either Dedis white or Demoisel, and I think Dedis white fits the occasion, your fashion sense and your personality best – Au Palace is a safe choice, but you aren’t going to the Oscars just to fade into the background, are you?

    • Fashion Critic January 23, 2013 at 05:44 #

      Oh no is ain’t 😉

  9. Parvati January 22, 2013 at 21:15 #

    I voted for “Au Palace”!

  10. pixie January 22, 2013 at 21:07 #

    Au Hameau because it
    – is a pair of Louboutin, designed my the shoe master!
    – looks so elegant
    – feels so glam!

    Now my fingers are crossed for a gorgeous selection of Judith Leiber miniadiéres!!!

  11. Reverie January 22, 2013 at 20:57 #

    Corpus !

  12. Shari January 22, 2013 at 20:49 #

    Waah since when does Mouret design such fugly shoes! I really hope for you that a Louboutin will be chosen. I was torn between Corpus and Flo. The Corpus is a design unbeatable in glamour and sexyness. Whenever someone choses a shoe like this, reminding us of danceshoes from former decades, the look never fails. But at the end I voted for the Flo because the tan colour at the back of the Corpus just didn’t feel right. A few years back a matchy-matchy like with the Flo and the colour of your dress would have been a no-no but recently it gets a lot of faviour when done right. Just pair the ensemble with a jewel or metallic toned clutch and everything will be fine.

  13. Simon January 22, 2013 at 20:40 #

    Did you selected all of these ? do you like everything ? i don’t know lol ! 🙁
    i think i might go for Au Palace with white gold and diamonds jewelery !

    • Fashion Critic January 22, 2013 at 21:05 #

      I don’t want to influence the vote, so I will stay quiet 😉

      • Sara January 22, 2013 at 23:42 #

        will you tell us when the shoe has been selected??? Oh please do!

        • Fashion Critic January 23, 2013 at 05:40 #

          Yes will do

  14. Rashmi January 22, 2013 at 19:52 #

    Oops i meant that the right one ! (Seeee how tensed I am)

  15. Leo January 22, 2013 at 19:51 #

    Hard to pick. I’m torn between the sparkle and the glamazon. But I think the didis purple is the best choice because it will give it the right edge. You’ll rock that red carpet.

  16. Rashmi January 22, 2013 at 19:50 #

    To be honest, i really want FC to chose the accessories including the shoes. Shez probably the best stylist for herself and I am getting way tensed to select a wrong one 🙁

    • Fashion Critic January 22, 2013 at 21:06 #

      You won’t….that why I trust you 😉

      • Rashmi January 23, 2013 at 09:26 #

        Thanks FC 🙂
        Well after taking so much of time analyzing, re-analyzing , imagining the dress on you and after re thinking, finalllllllyyy landed on ‘Au Palace’, I think its perfect! 😉

  17. Natalie January 22, 2013 at 19:43 #

    My eye was immediately drawn to the Demoisel shoe for the colour which would look amazing against your dress, but for some reason I just love the Dolls White for something totally different and unexpected underneath your dress.
    I would definitely expect turquoise jewels and a handbag though so the shoe being white would be less matchy matchy.
    I’m doubly excited for The Oscars now!

  18. ajnos January 22, 2013 at 19:34 #

    I personally prefer Roland Mouret ones, but Louboutins would work better with the gown you chose. I think the other three Louboutins would be too obvious though with the pink theme, especially Flo and Au Palace, and I know you don’t like to play too safe, so I picked Corpus.

    And thank God for no black pumps. 😉

  19. Katey January 22, 2013 at 19:16 #

    I voted for Au Hameau, but I think Flo would be a great choice with the colour of the dress. And on third place I would choose Au Palace. I don’t like the colours of the others.

  20. robbie January 22, 2013 at 18:54 #

    au hameau for me. the louboutins are beautiful but i must admit the roland mouret shoes are UGLY! they look like something you would buy at topshop not something you would wear to a huge award show on the red carpet.

  21. Rashmi January 22, 2013 at 18:54 #

    I chose the ‘Au Palace’! On a sidenote, i think the Jimmy Choo suede sandals you have on display on the right will be a perfect choice. sad they are not one of the options!

  22. Dhppy January 22, 2013 at 18:40 #

    The Demoisel is perfect; it provides a nice color contrast, it’s delicately feminine without being stodgy, and it’s neither white nor black.

  23. goldfish January 22, 2013 at 18:24 #

    the louboutin au palace are absolutely beautiful! would love to own them. of course, my vote goes to them

  24. Amy January 22, 2013 at 17:58 #

    I like most of these, they’re great but i feel like the RM ones would be too overwhelming for the dress so you can pick any of the Loubis

  25. K January 22, 2013 at 17:57 #

    I’m torn between the Au Hameau and the Corpus!

    • Sila January 22, 2013 at 23:28 #

      I totally agree! It’s a hard choice!

  26. Nat39 January 22, 2013 at 17:50 #

    I don’t think it’s time for snakeskin, bold colour pops or cut-out booties. Keep it classy and elegant with a delicate pretty sandal like “Au Hameau”.

    • Nat39 January 22, 2013 at 19:21 #

      The gown is full-length, I don’t think it needs a statement shoe/any colour accidentally popping from under it, it will look awkward (like a burgundy shoe in Michelle Dockery case). It’s better to make a statement via a pretty clutch/jewellery.

      • Nishta January 23, 2013 at 12:22 #

        She could always match the clutch/jewels to the shoe. I think a pop of colour would be lovely. But then again I guess I’m not much of a fan of pastels…

        • Nat39 January 23, 2013 at 16:30 #

          That would be too much, too obvious and non-elegant, sorry, not a good idea in my book.

        • Nat39 January 23, 2013 at 16:52 #

          …if you punch up the look, let’s say, with coloured jewels, you don’t really need an excessive matching colour pop on your feet, this is not a classy styling (esp. for the event like Oscars) as far as I’m concerned.

  27. CeCe January 22, 2013 at 17:49 #

    FC I know you don’t like white shoes so I chose the ‘Didis purple’

  28. Prudence January 22, 2013 at 17:42 #

    I feel like we should choose the jewels first so then we can match it to the shoes. thank god there are no closed toe pumps!! I’m loving au palace so then you can do silver jewels, but youre so fashion forward so i feel like demoiselle would be such a nice complimentary statement shoe.

  29. Anne g January 22, 2013 at 17:00 #

    look 3 for me “the demoisel” is perfect. you need colour with your dress

  30. katchimo January 22, 2013 at 17:00 #

    Demoisel for RM, Au Palace for CL!

  31. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) January 22, 2013 at 16:52 #

    I chose the Louboutin Corpus. They are all divine but some see too casual for the dress to me. Will we get to choose your hairstyle too? This is sooo much fun!

  32. katie January 22, 2013 at 16:51 #

    Yes im the same its Oscar night am sorry FC it is only about glamour, Look 1 i choose also, no pain no gain!!i cannot wait to see you on the night, am so jealous!!!

  33. Yeliz January 22, 2013 at 16:50 #

    The Mouret shoes of course would add an edge to your look, but I don’t think any of them suits to the chosen gown. The Louboutins are better, since they’re more elegant and more appropriate, but only two of them would really work with your gown and those are either the ‘Au Hameau’s or the ‘Corpus’. The ‘Flo’s would be too one note and the heel of the ‘One Palace’ is too chunky IMO. I think I’ll vote for the ‘Au Hameau’ because they look beautiful and delicate and I don’t they’ll be very uncomfortable. ‘Corpus’ would be my runner up.

    • Sila January 22, 2013 at 23:31 #

      I totally agree with her. With every letter.

  34. Kasia January 22, 2013 at 16:49 #

    I’d go for an edgy look. ‘Didis Purple’ with ‘Demoisel’ as a very close runner up.

  35. Betelgeuze January 22, 2013 at 16:42 #

    The Demoisel all the way. They would provide a gorgeous pop of colour against the dress and your skintone. They work the best in my opinion, though I’m not sure about how comfortable they can be..

  36. GiGi January 22, 2013 at 16:36 #

    Wow. This depends on your tolerance for pain!! (And how often you parade around in 6″ heels)

    I am going to choose the one I would want to wear, which is the Demoisel because it has a lower heel and since you are already tall, you don’t need the extra height. Also, it won’t be very visible. Good luck!!

  37. P. January 22, 2013 at 16:35 #

    LOL.. No black pumps??? I must say I’m very surprised,FC.
    what a beautiful amount of shoes… despite that, I don’t think any of Mouret’s will harmonize nicely with your outfit cuz they’re too edgy in comparison to your sophisticated gown. “Flo” is a nice pair, but predictable. “Au hameau”, “Al palace” and “Corpus” will complementary very well the look, but in the end I chose “Au hameau” mostly because they’ll add a bit more dazzle to the amazing look.

    • Fashion Critic January 22, 2013 at 18:15 #

      lol…yep, no black pumps

  38. Violet January 22, 2013 at 16:35 #

    I totally agree with Vicky, the Demoisel colour will pop against the coral colour of the gown.

    The others aside from the ‘Didis Purple’ will only make the overall look very neutral.

    The ‘Didis Purple’ is rock chic sandal which should only go with similar ensemble; not with an evening gown.

    Just want to say this is my first time of commenting after 7 years of religiously visiting Good job, Cathy. Do keep it up.

    • Fashion Critic January 22, 2013 at 18:16 #

      thanks for your comment and your support over the years

  39. Laura January 22, 2013 at 16:34 #

    Au Palace 🙂

  40. Arina January 22, 2013 at 16:31 #

    Oh dear, I really wish the CL Peacock Blue Vampanodo would’ve been an option. They were what first popped into my head when the dress was decided. I went for Demoisel in this case.

  41. Ally January 22, 2013 at 16:23 #

    The ‘Didis Purple’ definitely gets my vote- I think the girly coral colour of the gown needs to have a fierce pair of heels to give it a bit of a ‘glamazon’ edge!! 🙂

  42. Alina January 22, 2013 at 16:18 #

    Look 1.

  43. Pablo January 22, 2013 at 16:07 #

    Gee! This is so exciting!

    Any of the Roland Mouret would be really cool, they add an edge.

    But I think Oscar night is time for classic elegance so I’m going for the “LOUBOUTIN AU HAMEAU”.

    You’re gonna be a knock-out! 🙂

  44. vicky January 22, 2013 at 16:05 #

    Only one option in my opinion, the Demoisel.
    It offers a pop of colour and I feel that’s the only shoe that works with the chosen gown.
    Although, it’s very hard to decide such things when you’ve only got small pictures to look at, it would surely be different seeing it all in real life.

    But based on these photos my thought was as follows: Silver, gold and white won’t work (which rules out Au Hameau, Au Palace, Corpus, Didis White and Dolls White) and Flo and Didis Purple feel too chunky = Hence my choice being Demoisel!

    • Lexa January 22, 2013 at 20:41 #

      Demoisel would look great with the dress 🙂

  45. justme January 22, 2013 at 16:00 #

    I wanted to vote for one pair of Roland Mouret because they definitely look like they’d be steadier.
    But the selection of Louboutins appeal to me more. Sorry in advance for your feet, FC lol.

    The Flos would be the obvious choice but the Au Palaces aren’t bad either.

    Let me think about that one.

  46. manja January 22, 2013 at 15:47 #

    voted for Didis Purple,with Au Palace as a runner must be so exited.looking fwd to seeing the final result,no doubt you’ll look great.

    • Carolina January 22, 2013 at 18:32 #

      Didis purple would be just right with the gown – balancing that soft coral with a little edge – while looking incredible against your skin color.

      • Nat39 January 22, 2013 at 19:14 #

        Didis purple would’ve been my choice if the fabric was heavier, the gown had a thigh-high slit (to show off the major statement shoe) and the event wasn’t as grand as Oscars, just my opinion 🙂

        • rashmi January 22, 2013 at 19:32 #

          agree with Nat39

    • manja January 23, 2013 at 08:19 #

      Corpus would be great as well if you rather go for elegance then edgy.

  47. Noemi (WBiS) January 22, 2013 at 15:45 #

    I voted Au Palace, because they’re beautiful of course, and they have a solid heel and the ankle strap, I think you will be comfortable with them. I also like Flo and Corpus. FC, what about the white shoes? Don’t you hate them? I don’t find them very appropriate for your delicate gown, anyway.

  48. Laura January 22, 2013 at 15:38 #

    Au Palace !! No hesitation
    1. You will wear a long coral silk dress with a light pattern that’s why you have to banish full grain leather shoes and satin shoes. To much and to “heavy” for the silhouette
    2. With a long dress when we can see the toes and the top of the feet it’s very sensual and no strass on the shoe upper otherwise it’s also too much
    3. You need something “poetic” with this dress
    But something glittering – on the heel it’s perfect
    Conclusion? The Au Palace shoe is for me the best choice ever

    • the (un?)social butterfly January 22, 2013 at 21:01 #

      Couldn´t agree more. Plus, I think Au Palace matches well the discrete geometry that´s going on the dress.

      If the Demoisel was more delicate, I´d pick it for the color, but it looks too casual for me and well, it´s the OSCARS, and full-on glamour applies.

    • Sammy C January 22, 2013 at 22:09 #

      I think I would have to see the dress at more detail to give a definite choice, but I can say that none of Mouret’s unfortunately… Even if they contrast well colourwise, they are not Oscar worthy in my humble opinion.

      And out of Louboutin’s, I agree with Laura, Au Palace, although the others could work too.

      Flo are the obvious choice, but on a positive note, being so matchy with the dress they allow for more interestingness in the accessories area, a la Beyonce with her black Pucci gown and emerald jewels, or Emily blunt in gold with the incredible touches of pink. So I guess Flo are the ones that come closer to a second choice out of the other three.

    • SkirtTheIssue January 22, 2013 at 23:03 #

      You have reflected my thoughts perfectly- the Au Palace are the only ones that come close to matching the style and fabric of this dress!

    • Beta January 23, 2013 at 09:17 #

      cool, my thoughts exactly 🙂
      for me this is a no brainer – ‘Au Palais’
      the other shoes dont fit in my opinion because of the colour or style
      still, Im very curious to see what everybody else thinks 🙂

      I have to add that I LOVE the Demoisel, and the Dolls White, just not for this dress.

  49. Leeann January 22, 2013 at 15:31 #

    Do remember that most actors are teeny tiny. I don t care for any of them sorry

  50. asherlev1 January 22, 2013 at 15:27 #

    I picked the Demoisel!

    • Linda January 22, 2013 at 19:01 #

      me too, for the colour

      • Christine January 22, 2013 at 20:17 #

        I voted that too! The pop of green would look gorgeous against your skintone and fabric!
