Actress Elizabeth Banks recently donned an artful pair of floral Stuart Weitzman Wildthing Sandals to a Venice Film Festival jury photocall. This brand new Stuart Weitzman style paired perfectly with her appliqued floral Dolce & Gabbana dress. These sandals aren’t available to non-celebs just yet, but you can shop a broad selection of Stuart Weitzman sandal styles at Shopbop.

The Wildthing makes its debut on the heels of yet another especially lucrative summer for Stuart Weitzman. Is it the new Nudist? Only time will tell. If you need a refresher on the brand’s other noteworthy, more widely available sandal styles (and there are many), check out The 6 Stuart Weitzman Sandals You Need to Know About.

Friends, it’s officially ankle boot season. Here’s Hailey Baldwin, ringing in the good news while doing a little shopping in downtown NYC. She’s wearing a gorgeous (yet potentially treacherous) pair of Saint Laurent Janis Ankle Boots. You can find Hailey’s exact boots for $1,495 at LUISAVIAROMA.

As it happens, Hailey’s also carrying a large shopping bag from Saint Laurent. Looks like someone’s a big SL fan. If you’re on the hunt for hot new ankle boots, you can expect to see a lot of new designer offerings trickling into stores in September. In the mean time, you can check out some of our choice picks from last fall, as well as our fave ankle boots under $500.

Rihanna recently donned a lacey, 80s-inspired mini-dress with a pair of color-matching patent leather pink Christian Louboutin Pigalle Follies Pumps to her perfume launch at the Macy’s in downtown Brooklyn on Monday night. You can find these Loubs in a slightly darker shade of patent leather pink for $675 at Barneys. Rihanna’s new perfume RiRi by Rihanna retails for $60 at Macy’s.

You’ll notice that Rihanna is also carrying a brand new pink Dior Mini Diorama from the brand’s Fall-Winter 2015 collection, which is available exclusively at Dior boutiques. Pink has been Rihanna’s preferred hue of the past few weeks. We recently spotted her in a pair of gorgeous hot pink Pierre Hardy Marjorelle Suede Tassel Sandals.

Here’s TV personality Rocsi Diaz, arriving at Sunday night’s MTV VMAs in one of Sophia Webster‘s statement-making signature styles. Rocsi has skillfully paired gorgeous black and neon Sophia Webster Chiara Butterfly Sandals with a simple yet daring LBD. You can currently find these exact sandals for $580 at Net-A-Porter.

We first saw the Chiaras on celeb feet during Summer 2014, but they took several months to make their way into stores. Now they’re available in a pleasing variety of colorways, and there’s even a stiletto-heeled ankle boot version of the Chiara in play if you prefer to wear your butterfly wings year-round.

Here’s model/actress Emily Ratajkowski, posing on the red carpet at the LA premiere of We Are Your Friends with her costar Zac Efron. She’s wearing a revealing Grecian-style gown by designer Maria Lucia Hohan and a pair of pale pink Jimmy Choo Lottie Sandals. You can find a similar pair for $695 at Jimmy Choo.

It’s been a busy week for Emily, we just saw her making the press rounds in NYC just a few days ago in a pair of metallic Sophia Webster Layla Metallic Sandals. She definitely seems to have a preferred color palette for this press tour. We Are Your Friends hit theaters last Friday.

[Editor’s Note: This week, the TalkShoes staff is out of the office to enjoy the last little bit of summer. We’ll return on Monday August 31st, but in the meantime, we’ll be running a few of our favorites from the past few months. We brought this one back from the archives to get us ready for the looming colder weather, and because, let’s face it, it’s hilarious!]

Pity the half-frozen actress with something to promote in February. Celebrities of every ilk seem to suffer from a shared delusion during winter; that’s the only way to explain the excess of short skirts, bare legs, and six-inch designer pumps during a blizzard. Or maybe the extreme societal pressure we place on celebrities to look beautiful and idyllic in less than idyllic conditions is to blame. Or maybe it’s the excess of early designer freebies from everyone’s spring collections. In any case, celebs, you have our sympathy. (Sort of.) (more…)

2015 has been an oddly consistent year for celeb shoe selections. Single-soled offerings from Louboutin, Sophia Webster and Stuart Weitzman have proved to be particularly enticing to celebs year-round, while your more traditional summer styles like wedges and espadrilles received precious little love this year, leaving the humble Birkenstock to fulfill the celebrity’s ongoing need for casual, comfortable footwear for the third consecutive summer.

Here’s actress Mena Suvari (who is now a brunette), arriving at the LA premiere of She’s Funny That Way. She looks particularly gorgeous in a brocaded floral dress that she’s paired with a multicolor pair of Bionda Castana Dekota Pumps. You can find a black leather and mesh version of these pumps for $820 at

We first saw Taylor Swift wearing this popular Bionda Castana style almost a year ago to the day. Mena does not appear in She’s Funny That Way, but you’ll soon be able to see her playing a demon hunter (who might also be a little possessed) in an upcoming We TV series called South of Hell that should make its premiere some time in 2015.
