Are you the sort of person who scrolls down to see what shoes celebrities are wearing when you see an outfit that interests you? Then this is the list for you. Even if you aren’t a shoe fanatic, this is still a fun exercise, to be honest. We’ve compiled together our list of the top 25 most drool-worthy heels, platforms and boots spotted on celebrities in 2012. And to make it even more interesting, when you visit the gallery below, we’ve put pictures of the shoes first, with the celebrity reveal right after, so you can have a go at guessing who the gorgeous heel, platform, pump, bootie or boot belongs to! The caption on each celebrity reveal will also tell you what brand the shoe is and where and when it was worn. All our favourite celebrities are in there: Beyonce, Kristen Stewart, Emma Stone and a whole host more.
A couple of spoilers, though. We won’t tell you the color of the shoes so you can still have a guess when you look through the pictures. We adore Mila Kunis‘ Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ and Miley Cyrus‘ Jimmy Choo ‘Tippi” pumps, respectively. Bella Thorne‘s Miu Miu platform booties are to die for, as are Rooney Mara‘s YSL ‘Tribtoo’ slingbacks. Have a blast figuring out which is which. We wish you a happy and well-heeled rest of 2012!
How quickly our sartorial tastes have to move in peak party seaon. Yesterday we had Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Jessica Biel as our current favorite fashion stories. Today, we’ve moved to Kristen Stewart, Alicia Keys and Liv Tyler. Kristen was at a special screening of On The Road yesterday at Sundance Cinema in L.A. and her face looked absolutely gorgeous. She wore an edgy Jason Wu Spring 2013 ensemble which involved black leather high-waisted shorts with lace inserts and Barbara Bui black oxfords. Can everyone pull this off? No, but Kristen can! Next up, we have Alicia at the Keep A Child Alive’s Black Ball “Redux” 2012 benefit at The Apollo Theater in New York City. She poured herself into a minimal, burgundy column, and we’re dying to know who designed it. Loving the simple black choker with the diamond design as well. Lastly, we have Liv Tyler at the New York premiere of The Hobbit and forget everything else — we have to get those shoes! The all-black outfit’s great but those shoes were absolute lust at first sight. Especially because she, very smartly, matched them to the shade of lipstick which looks completely stand-out on her. But enough of typing, we’re now going to make it our life’s mission to find out who made those heels or break into Liv’s closet.
We all get by with a little help from our friends, but celebs even more so. After all, Hollywood is a tough biz, and the only way to survive the ups and downs of Tinseltown is by surrounding yourself with a few true pals who will stick by your side in good times as well as during the bumps and slumps. We’ve long loved the enduring bond Oprah Winfrey and her BFF Gayle King share, and got teary-eyed this awards season watching Busy Phillips escort her nominated pal Michelle Williams to every event in town. And who can resist dudes like Tom Sturridge andRobert Pattinson and Jay-Z and Kanye West, who are always on hand to support each other’s personal and professional triumphs?
And then there are gals like Snooki and J-Woww, who have stuck by each other from day one in the Jersey Shore house. Through booze, bitch slaps, anonymous note-leaving, Vinny sex and drunken fights on the streets of Italy, they’ve never left each other’s side. The girls have a new reality show premiering tonight on MTV chronicling — what else? — the ups and downs of their friendship. In honor of their unbreakable bond, we’ve got 35 of the Most Adorable Celebrity Besties in the gallery below. Have a fave pair? Shout ‘em out in the comments.
We’re very relieved to see that most of the celebrities at Sundance this year have opted to leave their skimpy Los Angeles clothing in their fancy suitcases and don proper winter gear for their Park City romps. Some, like Liv Tyler, learned the hard way that fashion shouldn’t trump practicality, as she told VH1 News.
“It’s all about the shoes,” said the actress, who was there to promote Robot and Frank — a movie starring Frank Langella as an elderly ex-jewel thief and his robot. “Last year, I don’t know what I was thinking, I wore these little Lanvin flats with little white socks. Everything else was all warm and decked out, and I was walking through the slush with frozen toes. So this year I came prepared!”
And does “prepared” include some good long underwear? Read more…
We hope you’re ready for a good old fashioned celebrity mom fight, folks. Because it’s Friday afternoon and that’s what you’re gonna get. Liv Tyler’s mom, former model and 70s heartthrob Bebe Buell, went on a major rant in Steppin’ Out magazine about what she sees as the parental failings of Lindsay Lohan’s mom, Dina. “Dina Lohan’s relationship with her daughter Lindsay disturbs me,” she said. “I don’t see a mother and a daughter there. What her mother has done with Lindsay is morally wrong and disgusting. She should back off.”
Buell knows a thing or two about tricky relations with her kids; for years she told daughter Liv that rocker Todd Rundgren was her father, in order to sheild her from the growing substance problems of her real dad, Steven Tyler. Clearly that’s a tough call, but Bebe feels like Lindsay would benefit from her hands-on style. “If Lindsay spent a year with me I could turn her around. I could have her winning her first Oscar in two years!” Her unorthodox technique? Kidnapping, mainly. ”If my baby girl got that screwed up I would NOT allow to make her own decisions. I would abduct my child and I would make sure that I didn’t leave her side until she didn’t have those problems anymore.” Err, we hate to side with the Lohan’s on anything, but we’re not totally sure if that’s how “problems” of any size get solved. Regardless, you might wanna change the locks, Lindsay.
Here at The FAB Life, they don’t come much bigger than one of the original fabs, Paul McCartney! The legend added a new notch to his musical resume last night with the New York City premiere of his ballet composition, Ocean’s Kingdom. It was certainly a family affair, as Paul was joined in Lincoln Center by his fashionista daughter Stella, musician son James, and rumored fiancee Nancy Shevell. But even more stars turned out by the galaxy-load to watch the unveiling of the work for themselves. Sarah Jessica Parker turned up in what appeared to be a lace tablecloth, while the lovely Liv Tyler shown in a see-through black gown. A very trim Alec Baldwin kept things classy in a tux, while Jon Bon Jovi and Little Stevie Van Zandt kept the rock ‘n’ roll flag flying high. And Mickey Dolenz of the Monkees made an appearance to up the WTF factor. He’s had an opening in his calender since 1969.
On the way to the theater, the-still-pretty-cute Beatle admitted to feeling “quietly confident and nervous” about how his work would go down with the crowd of famous faces. “I’d seen the great traditional ballets like Swan Lake and The Nutcracker, but I had a very limited knowledge of ballet,” he told the Press Association. “Since this project I’ve obviously started to take notice.” But don’t except him to pirouette for us anytime soon. “I went to see Giselle recently in London and was bowled over by the sheer athleticism of the dancers,” he said. “The next day I tried to do one of the steps and failed dismally.” Although our idolization of him is so intense, we’d gladly pay big bucks for a show called Paul McCartney Fails At Dancing For Two Hours. Plus it would remind us of our prom. Check out more from last night in the gallery below!
The 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards took place last night at Lincoln Center in New York City. The show saw some serious fashionista traffic, but we have to admit we expected it to be a tad more A-List. Still, can’t complain with the likes of Alessandra Ambrosio in a red-hot Prabal Gurung dress and Liv Tyler in an unusual Proenza Schouler silk printed sheath. Both ladies showed a fair amount of back! We also loved Kerry Washington‘s simple white A-Line Calvin Klein dress and Lucy Liu‘s dramatic black Monique Lhuillier gown. Miranda Kerr looked heart-stoppingly sexy in her black Michael Kors skirt and cut-out body suit. But the big winner of the night was Lady Gaga who scooped up the Fashion Icon Award, bringing her sister Natali Germanotta as her date.
Unfortunately, there were a couple of fashion fails as well. Chloe Sevigny looked like she had forgotten to do up the top of her leather ruffle eyelet blouse from her own collection. Marcia Cross wore an inexplicable Pamella Roland blue sequined halter jumpsuit and Naomi Watts looked generically pretty but very blah in her Calvin Klein gold dress. We also love us some Ashley Greene but she just wasn’t working her two-tone Michael Kors dress, like a pregnant Jessica Alba worked the same trend in DVF. Perhaps it’s because Ashley’s clunky shoes were all wrong. One look at Gerard Butler in his snug, extremely well-cut suit, and all was well again. Get the full skinny by looking at our gallery below.
While Liv Tyler watches American Idol to support her father Steven (“I love it”) she admitted to Extra that her 6-year-old son Milo is not a fan. “You know what’s really funny? Milo does not want to watch it. and gets really grumpy with me, like, ‘We are NOT watching American Idol!’” she laughed. “And I’m like ‘excuse me, young man! We have to watch!’”
“It’s right at that time of, you know, bedtime and story time,” she explained, “well, that’s [Milo's] lame excuse.” We can’t blame her for being suspicious. A little boy who’d rather go to bed and have mom read a story than stay up late to watch TV? It probably has something to do with watching his goofball Grandpa strut and shriek at the drop of a hat. Milo probably gets enough of that on holidays.
We’re used to seeing Chloe Sevigny deck herself out in bizarro fashions on a regular basis, but she really outdid herself at the Go International Designer Collective launch party with her leopard-bow tie-garter ensemble. The things is, she seemed to take all the other normally trendy, stylish women in attendance down with her, which is unfortunate. Liv Tyler, Olivia Munn, and Lake Bell (pictured in our gallery below) all wore some weird variation of high-waisted mini-skirt and none of them really looked amazing, to tell the truth. Take out poll below and, in the grand tradition of American Idol, vote for the worst.
Though Nicole Richie displayed her “flower girl” aesthetic at the Jean-Paul Gaultier show the day before, she certainly didn’t look like any kind of hippie at Givenchy’s show at Paris Fashion Week earlier today. The socialite sat by the runway with Florence Welch in a tight, sleeveless leather dress that seemed to leave her a little chilly in the chestular region. Dig those snakeskin shoes! Fake or no, we’re pretty sure PETA would prefer she just wore a shirt with a painting of a dog on it like Liv Tyler did.
Get a good look at both Nicole and Liv’s looks in the gallery below.
