ShoNews - SJP - New Collection 14

It's a double dose of SJP this week as we take a look at her new collection - 25 italian-made shoes that exude feminine elegance, exactly as you would expect from the fashion queen. 

Channeling the simplicity that was reflected in her debut collection, new colours and styles are introduced including lace-up booties, t-strap pumps and ballet flats, all very dainty and girly, coupled with a gorgeously romantic campaign.

ShoNews - Pour La Victoire - Cameron Diaz Debut Collection

ShoNews - Pour La Victoire - Cameron Diaz Debut Collection

She's funny, smart, gorgeous and one of Hollywood's most prized down-to-earth stars, so what could she possibly add to her already impressive repertoire which would make us love her that little bit more?

Yep, that's right... shoes! The actress has revealed her first full accessory collection for Pour La Victoire consisting of many swoon-worthy shoes balancing a perfect line between form and function.

Alice + Olivia - Stacey Face Pointy Pump Soft Pink

Alice + Olivia - Stacey Face Pointy Pump Soft Pink

Cute, quirky and oh so chic! These pumps and flats from Alice and Olivia are the epitome of fun meets fab for your feet with the super cool Stacey Face depiction on the toe. The sunnies and crystal red lips glam it up even further and the soft pink colour contrast with the black is sophisticated yet pretty.

While my preference is always going to be for the pump, these are an example of flats that can be equally fabulous; dress them up or down and flaunt them all over town!

Saint Laurent - Paris Metallic Courts

Saint Laurent - Paris Metallic Courts

We all need a few simple stilettos in our wardrobe, but if you're anything like me then simple still has a bit of sparkle, and in this case, this pair of stilettos from Saint Laurent is a perfect option! 

With a metallic, scaled leather finish, these are the perfect mix of glam and function (even though I hate that word when associated with heels!). Dress up for a night out, or try some skinny pants and rock these at your workplace too!

Jessica Simpson - Sachaa Ombre

Jessica Simpson - Sachaa Ombre

The ombre trend has hit the hair industry pretty significantly over the last couple years, and it's forever been around in the world of fashion but this Jessica Simpson pump brings a taste of it to the wonderland of shoes too! 

Available in two super chic colour palettes; powder nude, a gorgeous shade of soft tangerine, and monochromatic black/white, both with a perfect patent finish. A cutesy peep toe keeps the look suitably spring/summer.

Valentino - Rockstud Calf Hair Slingback Sandal Pink Leopard

Valentino - Rockstud Calf Hair Slingback Sandal Pink Leopard

Having recently seen a pair of Valentino's very similar to this pair in the flesh, on my cousin's flesh even, whilst I was the colour of Shrek with envy, I also could appreciate just how fabulous a pair of Valentino's really are! 

And when you have a name that contains words like 'rockstud', 'pink' and 'leopard', it's almost like you're speaking a special language... Shaz's Shoe language. Mmmhmm!

Sergio Rossi - Cutout Suede Ankle Boots

Sergio Rossi - Cutout Suede Ankle Boots

Another bootie in the shoe box today, and this one is a super chic heel from Sergio Rossi. Although a single colour palette of black, this bootie has intricate detailing that makes it much more than just a little black bootie. Notably one has to then mention the cut out patterning, as this is the aspect that is most striking about this heel, making it elegant, chic and interesting. 

The silhouette is super smooth and heel height comes in at 11.5cm (4.5 inches).  

Burak Uyan - Suede Cut Out Boots

Burak Uyan - Suede Cut Out Boots

Reminiscent of a Giuseppe Zanotti bootie, but this gorgeous bold burst of blue is from Burak Uyan, and if this is an indication of what to expect, then something else you might expect to see very soon is a ShoEducation on Mr Uyan so we can get to know and appreciate all he has to offer!

Don't let the colour fool you, this particular heel is not simplistic, relying on its palette to create the drama, like a transformer, it's more than meets the eye! 

Sophia Webster - Jessica Printed Leather and Vinyl Pumps

Sophia Webster - Jessica Printed Leather and Vinyl Pumps

As it chimes Shoe O'Clock in the Shoe Box, we are gifted with a glimpse of another fabulous pair from the quirky and creative brilliance of Sophia Webster.

This stiletto pump delivers a wonderful silhouette that is elegant, chic and, quite svelte and sexy at the same time - the kind of shoe you'd expect to see a woman wear who has as much style as power, and has well and truly kicked some serious corporate ass. MmmHmmmMmmm! Queue the finger snap.  

ShoNews - Jimmy Choo - AW13

ShoNews - Jimmy Choo - AW13

If you've picked up a high fashion magazine lately then chances are you've seen the foxy Nicole Kidman campaigning for the latest Jimmy Choo AW13 collection, and I tell ya what, she looks as stunning as the Jimmy Choo shoes she's wearing!

So despite being a bit slow off the mark, as I spotted her a few weeks back while perusing magazines during a ridiculously long but luxurious hair appointment, I felt it still necessary to share some snaps of the latest because as they say... better late than never!

 

Luichiny - Vest Ted

Luichiny - Vest Ted

Whilst I believe this shoe is from their A/W collection, I actually think this is one of those wonderful numbers which is fairly versatile across the seasons. Maybe not in forty degree heat when strutting the strip in Vegas, but otherwise the style and the colour palette for the Vest Ted from Luichiny will be a great addition to the wardrobe!

With a great panelled design of fabric paired up with faux crocodile, this boot is further embellished with strategically and tastefully placed buckles and touches of metallic such as the front toe panel and heel. 

 

Jennifer Chou - Cathrine

Jennifer Chou - Cathrine

If you've never been onto Solestruck.com before, then it is well worth a browse if you are into, what I would describe as "alternative" shoes, and this fabulous heel from Jennifer Chou is just one example of heel heaven you may stumble across. 

While it's relatively simple, following the classic chunky pump silhouette with a slightly pointed toe, the finish on this heel is what grabs the eye and if metallic pink isn't your thing (wash your mouth out!) then you have three other colours to choose from! 

Charlotte Olympia - She Wolf Embellished Leather Pumps

Charlotte Olympia - She Wolf Embellished Leather Pumps

I wish I knew how to type out a sound like the build up of a wolf howling because that's exactly what this pump makes me want to do! I've come to expect some pretty unique and eccentric designs from Charlotte Olympia, but this particular heel is one that definitely has instant appeal. 

With an amazing wolf design covering the entire body of the pump, the depiction of the wolf itself is actually quite subtle when you see the pump side on, but don't you worry! Just take a look at the toe of the pump and you'll see why I adore this shoe! 

Dukas - Suede Doll Heel Pumps

Dukas - Suede Doll Heel Pumps

There is something special about a purple heel, I'm not sure whether it's just the enchantment and mysteriousness that is associated with the colour purple in general, or if it's because they are usually statement shoes that will be guaranteed a glance just from the colour alone. 

Regardless, this Dukas pump has more than enough going on to deem it worthy of admiration beyond it's pretty colour palette!

Lucy Choi London - Tartan Print Court Shoe

Lucy Choi London - Tartan Print Court Shoe

Want to tart(an) up your look but still keep it chic and classy enough for a stroll around the office or workplace? Then this is your answer! Introducing a fabulous pair of stiletto heels from Lucy Choi London in a stylish Scottish tartan print balanced out with a four and a half inch black pin-thin (well not quite, but you get the point) stiletto heel. 

Keeping it elegant and out of the 'naughty school girl' zone, the silhouette is simply gorgeous.
