Katie Holmes Livens Up a Black Outfit with Michael Kors Pumps

Katie Holmes Michael Kors Avra Paisley Pumps

Here’s Katie Holmes, attending the Lexus Short Films ‘Life is Amazing’ New York premiere in head-to-toe Michael Kors, including the Michael Kors Avra Paisley Pumps. Katie is practically drowning in all that volume, and I do not like this outfit one bit, least of all those pumps.

The Michael Kors brand has produced some great, comparatively affordable bags in the last few years, but I can’t say I particularly care for any of MK’s apparel or shoes. The brand frequently dresses celebs in beautiful formalwear for the red carpet, but I think its ready-to-wear line is rather cheap-looking and severely overpriced. If you’d like to see some of Katie’s far, far better fashion ensembles, you can check out “The Many Bags of Katie Holmes” on PurseBlog.

Friday Morning Pretty: Ralph Lauren Soft Ricky Alligator Bags

Other Brands

Ralph Lauren Soft Ricky Alligator Blue

Fashion is a complicated topic, for sure. It sits at the intersection of art and commerce, of high and low culture, of aesthetic and functional design. Sometimes, though, when something is beautiful enough, fashion feels incredibly simple; it’s just about owning something beautiful. That’s what it felt like when I first set eyes on the Ralph Lauren Alligator Soft Ricky Bags.

Handbag lovers are all well familiar with the Birkin-reminiscent Ricky by now, as well as with all kinds of exotics, but something about these bags stands out. Perhaps its the color choices, which are all soft, powdery pastels that give the alligator an almost porcelain quality. Its an extra element of delicacy to an already fragile material, and it’s easy to get the idea of the kind of women who would potentially carry one of these. Suffice it to say that her life probably doesn’t suck.

How to Wear it: The Multicolored Valentino Rockstud Sandal

Other Brands

Feature Image

Add a little bit of pink, a little bit of red, a splash of green and loads of Rockstuds, and what do you get? The Valentino Multicolor Rockstud Pump, that’s what. We first got a glimpse of this multicolor design a few months ago when Emma Stone stepped out wearing a pair. As much as I love anything and everything Rockstud-related, I wondered how I would wear this shoe if it somehow magically appeared in my closet.

If someone placed these beauties in my closet, I would make them the focal point of my ensemble, because this autumnal shoe makes a statement all on its own. I chose to keep my outfit slouchy and sleek, just adding a simple necklace to jazz things up. Since the Internet is now my closet, why not throw in the matching Rockstud shopper for some extra arm candy to match whats going on at my feet? Now to get my hands on a pair of these shoes, and I’ll be all set!

To Buy or Not to Buy: A Pair of Tom Ford Shoes

Designer Shoes

Tom Ford Python Lock High Heel Pointed Toe Pump

Tom Ford is a regular household name in fashion (and in popular culture thanks to Jay-Z). When I talk about my line of work with friends who aren’t in the fashion industry, the issue of prices often comes up, and the raised eyebrows come right along with it. While I may be somewhat immune to the rising prices in footwear, but Tom Ford’s prices consistently blow my mind.

The brand identity of Tom Ford is very specific, and not just aesthetically. Ford, more than most, is known for his extravagant prices. Dangling astronomical (even by fashion standards) price tags off all Tom Ford products, is one way the brand distinguishes itself from other fashion brands in the market. Everything from a $50 lipstick, to a $25,000 handbag, to a pair of $1,800 pair of pumps – the brand knows it they can slap these kind of prices on their product and have confidence that they will sell, or even sell out, simply because the Tom Ford name is associated with the product.

I can’t deny my love for Tom Ford NIke shoes; the man knows the way to a shoe-lover’s heart. However, can I see myself spending money on Tom Ford shoes? I’m sad to say that I can’t, at least not at these prices.

Taylor Swift Goes Out to Lunch in Towering Louboutin Pumps

Designer Shoes

Taylor Swift Christian Louboutin Lady Peep Pumps

Here’s Taylor Swift, heading into lunch at Angelica in Soho, wearing a dazzling fuchsia pair of sky-high Christian Louboutin Lady Peep Pumps. Taylor is already tall, so in these, she’s probably a head above everyone she passes on the street. (Both literally and figuratively.) You can currently find a pair of these in glossy black patent leather.

Just to recap: We’ve recently seen Taylor on the streets of NYC wearing nude Prada Suede Mary Jane Slingback Pumps and bright yellow Gucci Suede Pumps. (That’s a pretty bold shoe game, T-Swift.) Taylor seems to be adapting well to city life, and by “city life,” I mean “being followed from your apartment to brunch/your gym/the bodega by paparazzi on a daily basis.”
