Pièce de résistance from Pierre Hardy, and antidote to the chunky strapped heel… SUBLIME!
I’ve done a little survey among “it girls” around town and they’re sticking with their chunky heels.
The Italians like Sergio Rossi prefer more refined Fifties-chic pumps. And even though the whisperings around Versace say that the dresses look trampy and they’re ready to toss Donatella, the line put out a gorgeous, rounded red pump this season that spells sexy on a dance floor. My favorites among the refined include Christian Louboutin’s glitter infused black pump with electric blue tips and an equally stellar black mini sequined bootie with a gold nose. The pièce de résistance goes to Pierre Hardy with the sequined boot above. A STAR IS BORN.
Still gals like French Vogue daughter Julia Roitfeld stand by their black Balenciaga boots and gladiators. Love the fat platforms that YSL makes with the distorted curvy bottoms favored by social denizen Genevieve Jones. She also goes for fat Dolce platforms. More on the chunky tip, seen here on stylist Natasha Royt in YSL and in Rodarte’s latest, her pal Martin, a muse (yes, he’s a stunning platinum guy and best pal of designers threeASFOUR).
One chunk should stay in the closet — Tory Burch’s ugly buckle boot — displayed after the jump! REMEMBER THE CAT, PUSS IN BOOTS… WELL HERE IT IS! SO UGLY, IT SHOULD BE RECYCLED TO HELP HUMANITY, GIRLS WORLDWIDE. (Click after the break for visual)
