From “can you walk in those?” to “why would you want to?” – Hollywood stepped out in puzzling and truly outrageous footwear this year. By Melissa Liebling-Goldberg
Never one to shy away from tough fashion choices, the Reservation Road star set tongues wagging with her braided black and white Balenciaga sandals at the film’s Los Angeles premiere.
The singer showed off her vocal prowess and went Rainbow Brite in her athletic-inspired Balenciaga sandals at the American Music Awards.
The star needed help walking into designer Giambattista Valli’s February fashion show in his jaw-dropping six-inch platform heels.
Leave it to the cutting-edge star to take the gladiator sandal trend to new heights with these knee-high Chanels.
Call it two of a kind – Mary-Kate’s sister showed off her own over-the-calf Azzedine Alaia gladiator sandals at an event in August.
Always up for trying out the latest trend, the star trotted out in open-toed ankle booties at a salon opening in Los Angeles in the spring.
Usually one for classic style choices, the Good Luck Chuck star tied on these dominatrix-inspired Versace platforms at a Madrid photocall in July.
The singer took on a punk edge with her studded DSquared boots while dining out in N.Y.C. in October.
Perhaps taking “moon boots” a little too literally, the actress hit the streets of Manhattan in celestial vintage boots in April.
Carrie’s rosettes made a comeback when the Sex and the City star showed off these flower-bedecked Alexander McQueen heels in March.
The actress referred to her sky-high gold Versace platforms as “stripper shoes” on the Golden Globes red carpet – maybe a thought that should have made her rethink the metallic shoes before arriving?
The Pussycat Dolls frontwoman rocked out in her studded Christian Louboutin ankle boots at TRL in August.
Always one to add extra sex appeal to any outfit, the singer headed to dinner in L.A. in five-and-a-half inch Giambattista Valli platform sandals.
The heiress mixed multiple bold patterns, pairing her striped Christian Louboutin pumps with a zig-zag Nieves Lavi wrap dress while shopping in L.A. in September.
