London-based footwear brand Jimmy Choo is preparing for an initial public offering on the London Stock Exchange; multiple sources indicate that the company will offer 25 percent of its shares come October. This is exciting news for the Jimmy Choo brand, because an IPO sets the stage for an influx of cash that could spell growth for the popular shoemaker. The company is currently valued at $1 billion, according to WWD.

Generally, when brands raise capital from IPO, it helps to fund expansion in virtually ever sector, and it appears as though Choo is headed in that direction. WWD reported that the brand will essentially be looking to “triple its directly operated store presence to more than 300 units worldwide,” and we look forward to seeing what happens once the brand hits the floor of the London Stock Exchange.

Here’s Zoe Saldana, arriving at The Late Show studios in NYC to promote Guardians of the Galaxy, wearing a beautiful, navy blue pair of Jimmy Choo Anouk Lace Pumps. A slightly shorter version, the Amika, can be found for $695 at Net-A-Porter. Jimmy Choo fans can also preview the brand’s Fall 2014 shoe collection here.

Zoe has been on a PR warpath recently, we just saw her last week at the GMA studios in a pair of Christian Louboutin Apostrophy Slingback Pumps. Zoe has still not addressed her obvious baby bump, but I think we can jump the gun a little and confirm that it is indeed a baby, and not a day-old hoagie. You heard it here first.

Here’s Megan Fox, arriving at a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles press event at Comic Con in San Diego, wearing one of the most Comic Con-appropriate outfits I have ever seen on a celeb. Her sandals are the Jimmy Choo Vinyl Suede Sandals, and you can currently find a bedazzled pair on sale for $1,080 at Bluefly (down from $1,450).

Megan plays ace news reporter and platonic (?) turtle pal April in the new TMNT reboot. We actually saw her on set in NYC last year, rocking auburn locks and a dark brown suede pair of Rag & Bone Newbury Boots. Megan has been keeping a low profile since she became a mom twice over in a two year period. This is her first film since 2012.

Why It’s the Shoe of the Week: You might say that we’re tapping into our inner Carrie Bradshaws this week, because we’re starting on a very glamorous foot thanks to Jimmy Choo. The exquisite beading on this T-strap is reminiscent of old Hollywood, and these sandals should be your parter in crime for all your special nights!

Here’s one of our office faves, actress Emmy Rossum, running errands and being generally adorable in LA. Her beautiful teal blue, cutout suede shoes are the Jimmy Choo Talka Pumps, which are currently on sale for $690 via (down from $986). Her animal print bag is the Elizabeth & James Cynnie Haircalf Mini Bucket Bag, which you can grab for $545 at Shopbop.

Every woman can pick up a few tips from Emmy’s exquisitely curated designer ensembles. Consider this outfit, for example: a simple, two-tone shift dress paired with artful, color-matching heels, plus an animal print bucket bag thrown in, just so everything isn’t too matchy-matchy. You can browse through more of Emmy’s best looks, bags and shoes in “The Many Bags of Emmy Rossum” on PurseBlog.

When it comes to Jimmy Choo, you can always expect exquisite craftsmanship and innovative designs that hold true to the brand’s luxury status. Choo never disappoints with the debut of a new collection, and Jimmy Choo Fall 2014 is no different. This collection is about the unexpected details that give these shoes a seductively modern appeal.

It’s these unexpected details that make all the difference for fall. The Luther Ankle Boot, for example, features a cut-out upper that gives it the right amount of sexiness while remaining conservative and sophisticated. The brand also plays with side mesh detailing on a traditional pointy toe flat, which gives the Blanch a very modern feel. You can also expect to see architectural heels, like on the Derive and Diad boots, which gives a traditional stiletto a slight update with a curve.

Along with typical autumnal hues, the brand kicks up its color palette by featuring a collage-like floral pattern that will be dominant as the collection continues to roll out.

Overall, this Jimmy Choo collection will have have the brand’s fans rejoicing once again.

Actress Bellamy Young attended the Critics Choice Awards in Beverly Hills last Thursday in a gorgeous silver pair of the Jimmy Choo Malika Sandals, which paired especially well with her star-print Honor top and skirt combo. These shoes are no longer available, but you can shop the brand’s current sandal offerings at Jimmy Choo, of course.

Bellamy took home an award for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Drama for her work on ABC’s mega hit series Scandal. We recently saw Scandal’s leading lady Kerry Washington emerge briefly from her post-baby cocoon to pick up a Women in Film award for “Excellence in Television.” She wore a pair of bright orange Louboutins especially for the occasion.

There’s nothing I like better then coming into work and learning about a great sale that just launched. When I read about about this season’s Jimmy Choo sale, with prices up to 50% off, plus free shipping and returns, let’s just say that I, along with the rest of the TalkShoes team, was nothing less than ecstatic.
