It seems that every celebrity at one point or another is seen flaunting around in glamorous Louboutins. Whether it’s the sophisticated high heel or a classic flat, Christian Louboutin has become a staple in the closets of the A-listers. The “Pigalle Plato” Platform Pumps are no different as the design is impeccably exhibited with versatility, in an uptown or downtown manner. The platform adds further height to the elevated stature of the shoe contributing to the elegance. Unfortunately, I don’t have $795 to spend on these beautiful shoes, but the alternative below is quite dazzling.

Christian Louboutin makes some of the finest shoes in the world. Louboutins are a celebrity’s staple buys and no red carpet would be complete without at least one pair of the red-soled high heels. Louboutin’s “Pigalle” pump is timeless with its classic and sleek design. It’s probably Louboutin’s bestselling and most famous shoe ever. Not to mention expensive.

The Highest Heel “Hottie” Pumps

How great is this find? I recently stumbled upon these Louboutin knockoffs and was astounded by how similar to the originals they are. Just look at the extreme high heel or the pointed toe, it looks just like the real deal. And the best thing: they are on sale right now. But you better hurry and order fast as I’m sure they will sell out quickly.

The T-Strap classic just got much sexier thanks to Gucci and one of my favorite color combinations: black and gold. They have such a subtle platform and that playful peep-toe is like a little wink as you walk. The best part though is the sheer versatility. You can wear them with anything from a glamorous vintage dress to just jeans and a black tee for a night out. I absolutely adore them! Everything about these retro inspired beauties is extravagant, including the price tag. Even then, they still managed to sell out. Well, luckily for us, there is a designer out there that knew we needed beautiful shoes like these at a more affordable price, and they came through! Keep scrolling to find out more.

Steven by Steve Madden “Adalyn” T-Strap Platform Pumps

Yes, it is the fantastic Steven by Steve Madden. I haven’t been disappointed by a pair of these yet! Of course there are a couple of differences; the platform, gold details and chain are not exact. But from a distance, they are quite similar indeed. Try wearing your new heels with a jumpsuit or palazzo pants for a little seventies glamour, or perhaps with a pencil skirt and halterneck blouse for some instant sixties sophistication. You really can’t go wrong with this investment, they can definitely complete an incredible variety of fabulous looks to wear year round! Of course I’m a fan of classic black, but they are also available in nude, turquoise and purple.

Fine. I’ll just say it – this “Fine Bretelle” slingback by Christian Louboutin is not the finest heel to me. But then again what do I know; celebs and other deep pocket chicks snatched it up. For it is SOLD OUT! But have no fear of getting your hands on this heel. The great imitator, aka Ms. Ivanka Trump, has copied this heel to near perfection [really?]. See for yourself below.

Ivanka Trump “Taran” Slingback Pumps

Uh, wow! I don’t know how they get away with it. But Ivanka Trump‘s copy-from-the-rich/give-to-the-poor steal is our gain (I think). At only $144.95 this look-a-like can be yours in these colors: natural linen, blue suede and black leather.
