Red Carpet

So who wouldn’t feel like a total star while wearing these star-studded high heels by Giuseppe Zanotti? I know I would. These gorgeous suede stiletto sandals are from Zanotti’s Fall/Winter collection 2013 and definitely belonged to my top 5 Zanotti heels from that season. But OH.MY.LORD! $2.495? What an astronomical price for a pair of heels! There’s absolutely no way I could afford these!

Chinese Laundry “Juggernaut” Star-Embellished Caged High Heel Sandals

Luckily, Chinese Laundry comes to the rescue by bringing us the starred Giuseppe Zanotti designer look for roughly 5% of the originals’ price. Woot, woot, absolute steal alert! The arch on these Chinese Laundry high heels differs slightly (and therefore is probably also way more comfortable to wear I’d guess), but the rest of the design is pretty much identical. Available in black and blush suede leather for $128.

When it comes to shoes, Azzedine Alaïa has yet to disappoint me. I’ve loved every single of his shoes and I think this isn’t going to change soon. Just look at these fabulous strappy high heels sandals with the stingray leather straps. I love the bondage-y vibe they give off, it makes such a sexy look, don’t you agree? But whoah, have you seen the price?

Stella McCartney has a way of making a simple black dress as eye-catching as any other dress in the room. And this dress is no exception. It’s a classic silhouette, but the way it’s cut in at the sides and belted is very modern and unexpected. Brooklyn and Gwyneth both wear this dress spectacularly, but as a brunette, I’d wear it with a sleek ponytail, smokey eyes, nude lips, and very little jewelry. You only need a beautiful cuff or cocktail ring and perhaps some sleek drop earrings. If you can’t afford this designer gown, but really love the style, consider the pieces we’ve put together below to create a similar look.

McBerry Optical Illusion Gown & Mettle “The Bold & The Beautiful” Belt

Up close, the look may seem different; but when you wear it in a darkened room, the optical illusion is just fantastic. This dress by McBerry does work better on fairer skin, but it’s just an idea of how you can create the same strong shape with a design that covers more skin (makes you look super toned) and pay a lot less. You can wear it as is, or add this gold belt by Mettle to kick up the glam factor. The belt is also a versatile accessory you can wear with a solid-colored cocktail dress and instantly make it look both luxurious and unique.

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!

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.

So we’re back to Alaïa! These shoes might seem familiar because we’ve already written about the lace-up version of this hot mesh cut-out bootie a few months ago. And surprise, surprise, I’m totally in love with this Alaïa style as well! But as usual there’s no way I could afford it. Boohoo!

I also stumbled upon these platform mesh ankle booties by Chinese Laundry which are also obviously inspired by the Alaïa heels above. They’re a bit more expensive than the Audrey Brooke shooties but still waaaaaay cheaper than the real deal. Available in black, nude, rose and red suede.
