Here’s Jennifer Lopez, leaving the HuffPo Live studios in NYC in a pair of colorfully striped Christian Louboutin Bandy Pumps. The Bandys are essentially a So Kate with multicolor PVC insets. You can find J-Lo’s exact pumps right now for $1,045 at Nordstrom. (That certainly doesn’t happen every day. J-Lo’s designer wares are frequently too new or too exclusive to find online.)

Ms. Lopez is currently making the press rounds to promote her steamy new flick, The Boy Next Door, which is her first new film in two years. As it happens, this is our second J-Lo sighting in so many days. We saw her in a much more casual ensemble and a pair of customized Giuseppe Zanotti Leopard Sneakers earlier this week.

As longtime readers probably know, I’m not a heel-wearer. While TalkShoes editor Katherine is all about a stiletto pump, I have a nagging injury from youth soccer that keeps me firmly planted on the ground. That doesn’t prevent me from dreaming, though, and I’ve been dreaming about these Christian Louboutin So Kate Python Pumps since I first saw them in December. (more…)

We have plenty to look forward to in Spring 2015 from Christian Louboutin. Sexy leopard prints and a new front double design are just some of things to expect from his spring collection, and we couldn’t let this intriguing Jolly Squiggle-Heel pass under the radar.

Louboutin isn’t playing any tricks on us with this optical-illusion heel. It’s a masterful creation that gives an ordinary peep-toe pump an invigorating twist. This new 120mm sculpted heel gives an ordinary, vertiginous stiletto heel some competition. It’s a very of-the-moment design that’s innovative while still appearing elegant and ladylike. I have a feeling this heel will live on for future seasons with minor tweaks, and I also wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes a red carpet favorite.

Actress Kristen Bell walked the red carpet at the 2015 People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday night wearing a pair of beautiful, metallic silver Christian Louboutin So Kate Pumps and a tulle-tastic pink confection by Monique Lhuillier. Silver So Kates aren’t currently available online, but you can find them in basic black for $675 at Net-a-Porter.

Kristen and her husband Dax Shepard were nominated for their work on Showtime’s House of Lies and NBC’s Parenthood, respectively. Speaking of parenthood, Dax and Kristen just welcomed a new daughter named Delta into the world a mere three weeks ago. Little Delta is their second child in two years’ time; their son Lincoln is only 21 months old.

Actress Sophia Bush recently attended the Girls season 4 premiere in NYC in a pair of colorful, studded-PVC Christian Louboutin Bille Et Boule Pumps, which seem most appropriate for an event that celebrates a show and a cast with such a playful aesthetic. You can still find Sophia’s pumps in select sizes for $1,295 at Net-A-Porter.

As you can see, Sophia’s pumps were perfectly paired with a color-matching dress from Lela Rose’s Spring 2015 line. If you’re wondering whether Sophia is guesting on season 4 of Girls, the answer is no, but you can currently catch her on NBC’s sophomore series Chicago P.D., a Chicago Fire spin-off which airs on Wednesdays at 10 pm/9 pm Central.

Shoes: Christian Louboutin Follies Spike-Studded Glitter Red Sole Pump

Price: $1,295 via Bergdorf Goodman

Why It’s the Shoe of the Week: Let’s kick off the new year on the right foot, shall we? These Christian Louboutin pumps are a little bit of sugar, a little bit of spice and definitely very, very nice. Glitter mixed with the Louboutin’s signature spikes is a strong statement for the year to come.

Khloé Kardashian was recently seen heading to lunch at Chin Chin restaurant in LA after a quick pop-in a cosmetic laser center. (She does have a few Lamar-related tats that may mysteriously vanish in the near future.) She’s wearing a beige patent leather pair of Christian Louboutin So Kate Pumps, and her bag is, of course, a black Hermès Birkin. You can find Khloé’s exact pumps for $675 at Bergdorf Goodman.

As you might suspect, Khloé owns more than one pair of this popular Louboutin style. We saw her teetering around NYC earlier this year in a pair of black suede So Kates. While the entire Kardashian family practically lives in high heels, Khloé recently gave her feet a day off and shoved them into a pair of black UGG Classic Tall Boots.
