I’m still not cool with “Yves” being stripped from Saint Laurent, but I am definitely cool with the creative direction Hedi Slimane is taking the French fashion house. The shoes are especially fabulous. I really like the angular design of these black ankle boots. So chic! And expensive. Le sigh!

Tony Bianco “Fontana” High Heeled Ankle Boots

UPDATE (03/11/2014): Stumbled upon this nearly identical Saint Laurent dupe by Tony Bianco and had to share it with you. A little pricey, but so similar to the original. Also available in various other colors and uppers.

MANGO Elasticated Panel Leather Ankle Boots

UPDATE (09/27/2013): Just came across these fab ankle booties by MANGO which would be a great alternative to the pricey Saint Laurent originals, don’t you agree?

Steve Madden “DEVIL” High Heel Ankle Boots

Oh, Steve Madden – you are a “DEVIL” indeed! The description of these pointed-toe booties says “So sexy it’s just plain evil!” – well, I say “So close to the original, it’s just plain copying!“. Not that I mind too much though since the price tag of these $129.95 black booties is much easier to handle than the $950 one of the original Saint Laurent heels. Pre-order these beauties now if you want your Saint Laurent fix for less and have them ready when Fall comes around the corner!

When I first laid my eyes on these uber-hot spiked peep-toe slouchy booties by the one and only, Monsieur Christian Louboutin, I have been eagerly waiting for some look-a-likes to pop up. For some reason though it has taken a while… but now we found some nice Louboutin dupes that’ll help you get the look of these sexy glam punk Louboutins!

Nine West “Robyn” Peep-Toe Studded Booties

Let’s start with my favorite: the “Robyn” by Nine West. While not exactly a steal at $169 (now on sale for $79.99!) it is an almost spot-on dupe of the spiked Louboutin heels above. Absolutely adore these! Just wish they’d come in other colors, too.

So while I usually love anthing Camilla Skovgaard, these “Saw Tooth” wedge ankle boots aren’t exactly my cup of tea. I’d never wear these booties with a bare leg as seen on Whitney Port because my legs would look hoof-like and stumpy. But with a pair of black opaque tights I think these are quite rockable. However, laying down more than $500 for these booties? Thank you, but no thank you.

This fabulous pyramid stud peep-toe bootie by Giuseppe Zanotti is my absolute favorite shoe style from his Fall/Winter 2013 Collection. I think the shape, peep-toe and studs create such a sexy leg. I’d love to call them mine, but at $899 (sale price!) this isn’t going to happen. Oh, Italian designer shoes, why do you have to be so super expensive?

Christian Louboutin has done a lot of extreme and fetish-like shoes in the last couple years, but my favorites would have to be Louboutin’s “simpler”, more classic creations. Just like the “Alta Rita” pictured below. A paramount example for a perfect evening shoe: sparkly and glamorous yet not too distracting and with a feminine and elegant shape and a heel that is high but not impossibly so. I absolutely love how Kate Bosworth paired hers with a beautiful white Chanel frock. Such a classy look!

Ivanka Trump “Galantz” Slingback Sandals

Clearly, not everyone can afford to buy Louboutins, so here you go with an almost just as fabulous alternative by Ivanka Trump which will cost you roughly a fifth of the original Louboutin heels. Apart from a few minor details and minus the red luscious sole that Christian Louboutin is so famous for, the look of our budget-friendly Loubie version is pretty much identical. You like?
