About last night…

So last night was the infamous Met Ball aka the Vogue Prom aka Anna Wintour’s party.   Of course, I was watching the red carpet intently to see what shoes might make an appearance.  Here are a few of my favorites from my last night’s festivities.

Karolina Kurkova – Giuseppe Zanotti

These are hands down favorites of the night.  Of course, I have my people on with Karolina’s people about delivering these straight to my closet.

2015 Oscars’ Red Carpet Recap

The Oscars are the holy grail of the awards season and every red carpet leading up to the Oscars are basically practice.  The Oscars red carpet are all about the dresses which obviously is kind of disappointing for a shoe maven like myself.   I found last night to be the  night of the matching dress/shoe ensemble.  While I know that the matchy match look is a little reminiscent of the proms of yesterday it worked on the Oscar red carpet.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Best Shoe Looks from the 2015 Golden Globes

While I love to watch the Red Carpet and see all of the looks I am always dismayed at the inability to see shoes.  When I saw that E! News had a stiletto cam on the red carpet I had high hopes that I would get to see more shoes but alas not many of the celebs actually used it.  Here are some of my favorite shoe looks that I was able to see.

Jennifer Lopez – Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandals

Jennifer Lopez never disappoints on the red carpet.  Her Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandals were a perfect complement to her uber sexy Zuhair Murad cape gown.

Sienna Miller – Jimmy Choo “Claudette” Sandals

I loved Sienna Miller’s ethereal Miu Miu gown which was paired quite nicely with Jimmy Choo Claudette sandals.

Emma Stone – Christian Louboutin “Iriza” Pumps

Emma Stone bucked the red carpet trend and wore  a Lanvin jumpsuit instead of a gown. The jumpsuit paired with a pair of black Christian Louboutin “Iriza” pumps was fun, flirty and a reflection of Stone’s personality.

 Jessica Chastain – Jimmy Choo “Patsy” Sandals

Jessica Chastain brought the vixen last night.  She always looks great on the red carpet but last night was different to me for some reason.  Her plunging Versace gown paired with Jimmy Choo “Patsy” sandals and a dark eye makeup gave her an edgier look than we are used to seeing.

Kerry Washington – Christian Louboutin “Miss Rigidaine” Pumps

While I was not a fan of Kerry Washington’s Mary Kantranzou dress last night.  I did love the Christian Louboutin “Miss Rigidaine” pumps she paired with the dress.  The shoes are a perfect mix of patent leather and pink perspirex.

Coach to buy Luxury Footwear Brand Stuart Weitzman

On Monday, the rumor bill was buzzing that Coach, Inc. was going to acquire luxury footwear brand Stuart Weitzman. Coach formally announced the acquisition of Stuart Weitzman from Sycamore Partners in a deal valued up to $574 million yesterday.

The views from industry experts seem to be mixed as to whether this is actually a good deal or not but I think most are focusing on the deal from Coach’s perspective and the potential benefits to Coach.  And rightfully so, since the handbag maker has been struggling over the last few years to find its footing given increased competition from the likes of Michael Kors and Tory Burch.  Stuart Weitzman, most noted for its Nudist sandal that was a fixture on the red carpet in 2014, is a strong brand that has great potential to expand and improve its product line.  Stuart Weitzman may not be a savior for Coach but Coach’s footwear business will likely benefit from the knowledge it gains about Stuart Weitzman’s successful wholesale business.
