Forget trimming the tree. This week was all about decking out your FEET. With a mix of textures and heavy-handed doses of sparkle and shine, Whitney Port, Willow Smith, and Jessica Alba turned it out with some of the most dazzling displays of footwear of this past week. Due to the unseasonably warm weather we’ve been lucky enough to experience lately (haaayyy, bare-legged December!), these ladies’ tootsies are clad in the gamut of shoe silhouettes from peep toes to combat boots but all unified in their unabashed ornamentation.
Hosting Crest’s ’2 Hours To Sparkling Smiles and Holiday Styles’ Soiree in NYC, Whitney wore an Asian-inspired floral print satin blazer over a white draped slipdress with a flattering sweetheart neckline. Port finished off the silky combination with a pair of ballerina pink peep toe Valentino pumps. The heels were complementarily feminine and understated but far from boring. The mesh and subtle studding both helped to un-pretty the ensemble and kept the look from looking too sugary sweet.
Willow Smith is well-known for her bold, adventurous personal style, and this week’s winter white ensemble for the KIISFM Jingle Bell Ball in Los Angeles. Her multi-layered outfit of printed leggings, a tailored jacket, leather details, a diaphanous white button-up top, and one seriously chunky marled wool scarf came to a rousing crux at her feet. The pint-sized style star stepped out for the festive event in a pair of pearl-encrusted combat boots with white laces and fluffy white fur on the tongue. And believe us when we say “encrusted” – from the toe box to the mid-calf tops, every inch of these kicks, save the soles because well, (a) useless, and (b) what a waste, is COVERED in the frosty round gemstones.
Jessica Alba made a splash this week at the March of Dimes 6th Annual Celebration of Babies Luncheon in her reportedly altered Thakoon frock, but we’re dying over her forest green Brian Atwood pumps. Not only is the color simultaneously unexpected AND season-appropriate, but the shoe also features a perforated suede upper and two-tone metallic platform sole sprinkled with itty bitty spikes, and the shiniest magpie frenzy inducing gold heel. YUM.
