Designer/Project Runway alum Christian Siriano, 25, is obviously a feet man. Sure, the black, muted mauve and mossy green gowns he showed yesterday during his Fall 2011 runway show at New York Fashion Week were delish, but it was his INSANE shoes—studded, snake-skinned, fuzzy, embellished platforms—we couldn’t take our eyes off of. And we hear that these same platforms will act as Siriano’s inspiration for his next Payless line (we loved his last one). Take a number, ladies. Take a number!

Celebs, including Gabrielle Union, Mena Suvari, and Alexa Chung, sat front row to get a closer look at Christian’s fancy footwear. But take a look at their own towering heels. GOODNESS!
