Don’t tell anyone, but I’m a Kim Kardashian style stalker. It’s one of my (few) guilty pleasures. For some reason I have this weird fascination with whatever Kim K. wears; I need to identify it, recreate it or simply gush about it. Yup, you can call me strange. I guess Monica Rose, Kim’s stylist, does a very good job because I know I’m not the only one digging Kim’s newly evolved style.

Black leather. A screamingly hot stiletto. Buckles. How do I love thee, Givenchy? Let me count the ways. One of my favorite trends of the last several years is the reintroduction and reinterpretation of the bootie. And Givenchy’s Slouchy Thong Ankle Boots are a winning pair, I must say.

Jessica Simpson “Dakee” Ankle Boots

UPDATE (08/31/2010): Woohoo! Here’s another fantastic Givenchy alternative which is only about half the price of the Marciano booties by Jessica Simpson. Available in black, camel & dark brown.

Marciano “Milap” Booties

I’m sure there are thousands of working-class fashionistas who regularly fantasize about being able to plunk $1.150 down on a pair of booties, at-whim. Even if that fantasy never comes to fruition, you can still indulge your inner diva with the “Milap” Booties by Marciano. Like the Givenchy pair, they’re black, buckled, and bold—and while they’re no steal deal, $119 beats the hell out of more than a grand, don’t you think?

Brian Atwood shoes – one day I am going to buy me a pair. Definitely! Whatever he comes up with each season, I find myself loving it obsessively. Brian Atwood sure is one of the most talented and most promising shoe designers right now. The platform ankle below boots are one of the many, many reasons you gotta love him. They are perfection! So high, but oh so delicate.

Pour La Victoire “Asas” Ankle Boots

UPDATE (08/31/2010): Woohoo! Just in time for fall I’ve stumbled upon these Brian Atwood Miri look-a-likes by Pour La Victoire. Not really a steal, but so close to the orignals, aren’t they? Available in taupe or black.

Faith “Sorena” Platform Ankle Booties

These ankle boots by Faith instantly reminded me of the above Brian Atwood platforms and I think they would serve as a great alternative for British/European Brian Atwood lovers who you can’t spend that mush cash on the real deal. They are a little bit pricey at £120, but still a lot cheaper than the Brian Atwood booties. If you prefer a different color, the ankle boots also come in black and purple.

Drew Barrymore‘s outfit choices are as unpredictable as is her personality. And while she’s probably not the first who’d come to mind when thinking of a style icon, this outfit here I L.O.V.E. The actress made an appearance on Letterman to promote her newest film “Going The Distance“. Drew looked absolutely amazing in a bronze sequin top by Richard Chai with navy high-waisted Camilla and Marc pants and grey suede Yves Saint Laurent Trib Too pumps. I love how relaxed and glamourous she looks at the same time.

Taylor Swift‘s style can be defined as 100% girly-girl. Whenever I see pictures of Taylor she’s either wearing something frilly, sparkling, ruffled or anything with a bow on top. Take this outfit for example which she recently wore while being at a church in Maine. Curly hair? Check. Girly dress? Check. Cute shoes? Check. Et voilà – a typical Taylor Swift look. Bonus: To recreate Taylor’s exact look, you won’t have to spend more than $200.
