Reese Witherspoon recently donned a chic black suede pair of Christian Louboutin Leonor Fini Sandals to attend the Independent Spirit Awards. Her cocktail dress is actually a Giambattista Valli top and skirt from his Spring 2014 collection, and her clutch is Christian Dior. These wavy Christian Louboutin sandals are also from Spring 2014, and per usual, Reese is getting her hands on them way before the rest of us. The Finis haven’t hit stores just yet, but in the meantime, you can shop an extensive selection of Louboutins at Saks.

Reese is understandably a huge fan of Louboutins, Jimmy Choos and Manolos. But while single-soled designer pumps jive particularly well with her classic, slightly preppy sense of style, she seems to be avoiding CL celeb standards like the Pigalles and the So Kates as of late. Here she is in a pair of Christian Louboutin Iriza Pumps earlier this year. Is it possible that the ever-popular Pigalles and So Kates can actually dilute a fashion-forward A-lister’s profile?

Here’s Entertainment Tonight correspondent Rocsi Diaz, attending ESSENCE’s 7th Annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon in Beverly Hills. She’s paired her pale pink Christian Louboutin Pigalle Spikes Pumps with a pitch-perfect graphic print dress. If you know the designer behind this classy little frock, please let us know in the comments! You can snatch up Rocsi’s pumps in muted metallic gold for $1,295 at Neiman Marcus.

Pale hues have been a big Spring 2014 trend for handbags, and now it seems they’re infiltrating footwear trends as well. Bea warned us about the advent of rose-colored everything back in August, so if you’re planning to shop your way through all things pale, you can start there. You can also get your pale fix in the handbag department from this PurseBlog post on the 15 hottest pale bags for spring.

Shoe: Christian Louboutin Mariniere Multi-Strap Red Sole Cage Booties

Price:$1,295 via Neiman Marcus

Why it’s the Shoe of the Week: This ankle strap bootie is the perfect balance of boldness and sophistication, and it’s the perfect shoe for summer nights and weekends.

Here’s Michelle Dockery (or Lady Mary, as she’s known to most) at the premiere of her latest flick, the action thriller Non-Stop. She’s paired a beautiful Christian Dior lurex dress from the Spring 2014 collection with what we’re going to call the Christian Louboutin PVC d’Orsay Pumps and a delightful Edie Parker Jean Confetti Box Clutch. These multi-tone PVC pumps are not available in stores just yet, but in the meantime, you can shop an extensive selection of Louboutins for every occasion at Saks. You can also find an Edie Parker clutch much like Michelle’s for $895 at Barneys.

As Downton Abbey fans already know, the show just wrapped up its fourth season here in the US on PBS. (No spoilers, please! I’m two episodes behind.) The US run of Downton is delayed by several months, and the cast has already begun filming the fifth season, as of two weeks ago. (Huzzah!) Michelle also has another film in development, a sci-fi thriller with Ryan Reynolds and Matthew Goode called Selfless, which will be out in 2015.

Where I’m from, boat shoes are all-weather, all-season staples. The preppy ideal lives on in the American South, and when you combine that with mild winters, I’ve known plenty of people, both men and women who never send their Sperrys to the back of their closets to rest. Some of those people may or may not be blood relatives of mine. At least one of them would enjoy the Christian Louboutin Steckel Calf Hair Boat Shoe. That person may or may not be my mother. (more…)

Here’s the gorgeous Lupita Nyong’o, exiting the Late Show with David Letterman studios after making an appearance on the show Wednesday night, wearing a fantastic pair of black suede and gold studded cap-toe Christian Louboutin Geotistrap Pumps. These Louboutins are particularly hard to find online, but you can currently purchase them from MyTheresa.com for €645 (that’s $885 American, as of this posting). If you’d prefer to shop a slightly more domestic selection of Louboutins, we recommend Saks.

Lupita is an obvious front-runner in this year’s Oscar race, so I was surprised to find out that her acting resume only has four entries! Lupita jumped from a single short film to an MTV mini-series to the Oscar-nominated 12 Years a Slave in three moves. (It’s worth noting she only finished her degree at the Yale School of Drama in 2012.) Her next move? The Liam Neeson action thriller Non-Stop, which actually hits theaters today!

If you haven’t been able to tell from my Want It Wednesday picks, I’m always one for a great white pump. They’re on-trend, classy, and most of all, sexy, all wrapped into one pump. However, when I look at the Christian Louboutin Pigalle Spikes Red Sole Pumps, “classy” and “sexy” are not the first words that come to mind.

The Louboutin-favorite Pigalle Pumps definitely underwent a drastic makeover with this entire white shoe getting covered in what the brand is calling “candy-colored spikes.” I put the word candy in quotations in the title because, to my knowledge, this decoration wasn’t directly inspired by the dot candies we use to eat off wax paper as kids, but that’s exactly what it reminds me of.

If you can believe it, this candy spike motif has even extended itself to a backpack, which we covered over on PurseBlog. Compared to the candy spiked backpack, the shoes are much more justifiable and can potentially offer a playful element to an outfit.

While a perfectly sexy white pump may have been tarnished, Louboutin’s sense of fun is still present. What are your thoughts on this Pigalle pump makeover? If this form of nostalgia is just what you are looking for, then buy your pump through Neiman Marcus for $1,295.

Mariah Carey recently donned a lovely silver pair of Christian Louboutin So Kate Glitter Pumps while overseeing the ceremonial lighting of the Empire State Building on Valentine’s Day, as well as the special weddings of the winners of RedEnvelope’s and ProFlowers’ “Love Above All” promotion. The three couples who won received a prize which included a lavishly decorated “private” wedding ceremony at the top of the ESB, with special guest Mariah Carey in attendance, and special gifts from both websites. (But no special cash or honeymoon prize. I checked.) So Kates are sold out everywhere, but you can shop an extensive selection of Louboutins at Saks.

I feel obliged to point out that Mariah is blatantly disregarding the “only the bride(s) wears white” rule, but then again, of course she’s wearing white to someone else’s wedding, she’s Mariah Carey. You can’t invite a true diva to your wedding and not expect her to wear something white, combined with something furry, AND showing a lot of cleavage. Please don’t delude yourself into thinking otherwise, future hapless contest winners! In other Mariah Carey-related news, her latest single “You’re Mine (Eternal)” was just released last week! If you’ve completely tired of your battered CD copies of Butterfly and Daydream, maybe you should check it out?
