Here’s Jennifer Lopez, walking the streets of New York City with real estate broker Fredrik Eklund, a prominent player on Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing New York. It seems that J.Lo is contemplating a move to the city and has her eye on a $20 million apartment in Chelsea. Anyway, she’s doing her real estate shopping in a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti Wedge Sneakers, which the brand confirms are customized to her liking. The normal version of this sneaker is currently on sale for $995 at

We saw Jennifer wearing a non-wedge, animal print version of this sneaker just a couple weeks ago on the set of a music video, and those were also customized with an extra metallic band just like the sneaks seen here. The Jennifer Lopez-Giuseppe Zanotti adoration is clearly mutual, and you can see a lot more of the brand’s shoes on J-Lo in “The Many Shoes of Jennifer Lopez”.

Here’s Jennifer Lopez on the set of a music video she recently filmed with Fat Joe and French Montana in NYC, wearing a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti Leopard Hi-Top Sneakers. You can find an extremely similar pair for $1,016 at J-Lo’s pair seems to have extra gold metallic bands, but we’re guessing hers were customized for maximum bling factor. Jennifer is a big fan of the Giuseppe Zanotti brand, and you can find more of her favorite GZ styles in “The Many Shoes of Jennifer Lopez”.

These particular GZ sneaks have been around for forever – and by “forever”, I obviously mean since 2011. Three years is a really long time for a high-end brand like Giuseppe Zanotti to stick with a hi-top, side-zip sneaker, but for a couple of years they updated this style to include the then-massively popular hidden wedge trend (seen here on Selena Gomez). Thankfully, I think we can all say with complete confidence that that trend is now well dead, and good riddance.

Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti Booties

Why They’re the Shoes of the Week: While we are all sad to leave summer behind, cutout booties are a must for the start of September. We can thank Giuseppe Zanotti for these jewel-toned booties to help make the transition into fall more pleasurable!

When listing the biggest names in the footwear industry, Giuseppe Zanotti is one of the first to come to mind. Zanotti isn’t just loved greatly by celebrities like Chrissy Teigen andKhloe Kardashian – his luxurious, ornate designs are beloved by fashion fans of all stripes.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Zanotti’s eponymous line, and his Fall 2014 collection reflects the designer’s long history and enormous experience in luxury footwear.

The Zanotti Fall 2014 collection includes the brand’s staple sneakers and sneaker wedges, along with new patent leather slingbacks and snakeskin mules. The true beauty of the collection lies in the details, with splashes of color and crystal appliqués, luxe materials like snakeskin and velvety suede, and sculpted gold ornamentation. Together, these details make this line classically Giuseppe.

Fur on shoes is nothing new; Celine was one of the first brands to put all-fur shoes on our radars several seasons ago. The brand’s all-fur shoes from Celine Spring 2013 weren’t particularly well-received by anyone but crazy fashion people; I wasn’t a fan then, and now, I’m not a fan of the Giuseppe Zanotti Fur-Trim Wedge Zip Sneaker.

The amount of fur that consumes the front of this shoe is hard to get past, and with the added gold hardware across the center (and if you look close there’s also gold hardware going across the vamp), it makes this sneaker look gaudy. If the fur was kept to just trim at the top of this high top, as opposed to a ball of fur that we’ve got going on, I think it would be a more practical sneaker in terms of styling. Aesthetically speaking, this fur frontal is not pleasing. Although, I think if anyone will be seen wearing these sneaker and could possibly make me eat my words for disliking these shoes, it would probably be Rihanna.

Is anyone else sick of designers trying to make fur shoes happen?

Buy your Giuseppe Zanotti Fur-Trim Wedge Zip Sneaker through Barneys for $1,395.

Here’s model Chrissy Teigen, walking her French Bulldog Pippa in NYC’s East Village. She’s wearing an edgy pair of Giuseppe Zanotti Spiked Flat Sandals with a casual outfit that includes, yes, the bottom half of a highly fashionable-looking pair of overalls. (Who knew such a thing existed?) These sandals are nowhere to be found online, but you can find a similar style of GZs for $730 at SSENSE.

Chrissy and husband John Legend also have an English Bulldog named Puddy, but Puddy is also nowhere to be found in these pics! English bulldogs aren’t exactly renowned for their athleticism and stamina, however. Puddy and Pippa pop up quite frequently on Chrissy’s Instagram account, so you can get your bulldog fix there, if necessary. Stars, they’re just like us! They can’t stop taking random pet portraits!

Here’s actress Lucy Liu arriving at the Late Show with David Letterman to promote her hit CBS show Elementary. She’s wearing an intimidating pair of black, gladiator-inspired Giuseppe Zanotti Cutout Booties. These booties appear to be from a previous season, and have likely been sitting in Liu’s closet (or her stylist’s) for some time; Zanotti doesn’t currently make many platforms. You can shop an extensive selection of Zanotti’s current offerings at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Giuseppe Zanotti recently celebrated 20 years in business with the release of the first of four anniversary capsule collections.

To celebrate his brand’s 20th anniversary, Giuseppe Zanotti has revealed the first of four capsule collections, entitled “Jewel,” which will arrive in select Zanotti boutiques in June. The designs in this first collection are a selection of flat, gold sandals, embellished with jewels, which pay tribute to many of the jewels used in Zanotti’s past designs.
