What celebrity doesn’t love their Louboutins? Especially when they’re bright, fun, and have lots of girly bows to make you feel extra feminine! I LOVE how Naya Rivera paired her Loubies with a pair of jeans and a cute striped blazer! Definitely puts a lot of pizazz to her outfit! Don’t want to dish out the $1.200 for these heels? No problem as we’ve got an excellent steal for you!

N.Y.L.A. “Daris” Platform Booties

Update (05/10/2011): Another great Louboutin look-a-like by N.Y.L.A.. These also have a wooden platform like the Steve Madden version and come in black, grey & bone.

Steve Madden “FANTTOM” Platform Booties

OK, first off, this shoe comes in black suede, blush and magenta! Second, this Steve Madden version has a great wooden platform that I’m a big fan of! Granted, I still think the Louboutins are FAB, but if you’re just not willing to dish out the necessary $1.200 to make them yours, at $129.95, I think these Maddens here are the next best thing.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll probably know that – apart from a few occasional exceptions – I’m a great fan of Giuseppe Zanotti‘s shoe designs. For example, I loved to see all the metal-plated heels (or flats for that matter) which were one of Zanotti’s key design elements in his S/S 2012 collection. It’s such a nice and interesting detail which instantly sexifies the shoe (just look at all the celebs below working it in these metal-plated Zanotti heels). I wish I had an inexhaustible shopping budget so I could show Signore Zanotti some love!

Steve Madden “ATENTION” Plated T-Strap Platform Sandals

If you’re a Zanotti fan and are looking for a similar design, Steve Madden‘s “ATENTION” heels are a good start. They’re not a spot-on dupe and I wish they hadn’t such a high platform, but they still look pretty similar to the designer version. Make sure to use the promo code above to save some bucks along the way!

One of the most distinctive shoe styles of 2011 have been Giuseppe Zanotti‘s extreme wedge styles for me. I’ve loved them the second I saw them online. They do scare me a lil’ bit with their crazy 6 inch heel, but I still want them in my closet so badly. Not convinced yet? Check out the celebs letting their Zanottis do all the talking and I’m pretty sure they’ll land on your wish list, too.
