I am a shoe girl – always been, always will. I could spend an entire day browsing online shops for the perfect pair. Givenchy happens to make some really great shoes and I’ve always been a fan of their designs. If I had a few hundred dollars on hand, I would easily spend them on these absolutely gorgeous cut-out heels.

Vanessa Hudgens Loves Givenchy

High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens has a pair of her own Givenchy booties and apparently likes them a lot. She first sported these with an LBD to the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party in Septemer 2008 and then re-wore them with a casual outfit when she was shopping later in November. I’m not too fond of pairing these booties with a dress, but Vanessa certainly looked very chic in her black getups. What do you think?

bebe “Vixen” Caged Leather Boots

Update (09/03/2009): bebe‘s version definitely has its differences compared to the original Givenchys as bebe’s is made of patent leather and has a platform, but I still prefer their knockoffs out of all I have seen yet. They are certainly not the cheapest option, but the quality of the shoes looks really good. These knockoffs have also been recently worn by Lindsay Lohan. I wonder if she was aware they were designer-inspired?
