These shoes aren’t meant for long walks, but rather, to be candy for the feet. Slick and feminine, these heels by Jimmy Choo are definitely built for style. But aren’t there times in our lives when the Wow!-factor is exactly what we crave? Okay, there are many times – and for those instances, shoes like these were made. But is the price tag worth the amount of mileage they’ll get compared to the rest of your collection? We can relate, so keep an eye out for a copycat below.

Not only do these more affordable heels by Aldo fit our show-stopping needs, but just how amazing are they in bright fuchsia and tangerine?

Want to add even more allure? Pick up a lipgloss or nail polish (if you went for the black pair) in a similar shade.

So who’s up for some hot bootie action today? I know I am. Especially if it’s such a gorgeous little thing such as the Alexander McQueen buckled beauty below. Sophistication meets rocker chic – what a lovely symbiosis! But, oooh, have I mentioned these come with a price tag of $1.495 and are also nowhere to get hold of by now?

Christian Louboutin, you’ve done it again! Never have I ever seen a shoe as unique as this look so good on this many celebrities! While I’m partial to the yellow dress/black coat ensemble worn by Irina Shayk and Brandy’s crisp white pants and jacket duo, it looks absolutely stunning on every figure pictured below; and what is better than a platform that is incredibly stylish, eye-catching, and versatile? Not much! So what does this all mean? These will look amazing on you as well! Granted, this pair is sold out and priced well above most of our shoe budgets, but you can definitely get the same look with our help. Check out our fabulous steal further down the page and tell us what you think.

Boutique 9 “Nerissa” Suede Platform Sandals

Aren’t they sensational? This style by Boutique 9 is a mix of old Hollywood and a steamy Argentine tango. The peep-toe is a bit larger, and the color more red than plum when compared to the original version, but they would still look beautiful with any silhouette and match a variety of darker palettes. I’m thinking perhaps a dark grey suit would be just the thing. To channel an undoubtedly glamorous look, try pairing them with a beautiful shawl-collar jacket with a fabulous matching trumpet skirt. Then simply add a classic matte red lip and glossy hair and you’re all set. (For even more versatility, be sure to check them out in purple and blue suede as well!)

There’s something about YSL shoes that always keeps me fascinated. I think it’s how most of their shoes have this chunky, awfully impractical platform and the resulting ultra-high stiletto heel that comes with such a platform shape. Perfect examples are the Tribute sandals, the infamous YSL Trib Two pumps and also these black suede platform sandals below which I find myself being quite fond of.

Kylie Minogue has always been a dedicated fan of Yves Saint Laurent and can be often seen wearing something YSL like 2 days ago when she was papped at the airport in Lisbon, Portugal wearing the cutout platforms.

bebe “Maya” Leather Cutout Sandals

For weeks I was desperately trying to identify these bebe knockoffs. I think I already mentioned my knockoff intuition in a previous post. I knew that these platforms were designer knockoffs, but I just couldn’t put my finger on it. The mystery is now finally resolved. If you prefer a different color and want to cut off the price by more than 50%, there is also a tiger-printed suede version of the Maya sandal available which is on sale for $38.49.

Alexander Wang‘s Spring 2009 collection was not just all about the clothes, but also about the chunky badass heels. These black fringed ankle booties were my favorite. They haven’t hit the stores yet, but when they do, I’m pretty sure a hefty price tag will be attached to them.

Forever 21 Fringe Open Toe Boots

If you want the Alexander Wang fringed ankle booties, but don’t have a fat wallet to blow your cash on designer shoes, try these almost identical Wang look-a-like boots from Forever 21. The platform is not as high and the leather is faux, but it’s a great alternative if you want Alexander Wang for less.
