When I came across this Jimmy Choo pump, I was surprised to see stud ornamentation. The brand’s aesthetic is known more for their glamorous, ladylike silhouettes, especially when it comes to the Abel pump. The Abel silhouette is a Jimmy Choo classic that’s clean and refined. These mixed-finish studs are a bit edgy for the brand, and it’s a nice change-up. After looking at this design, I instantly thought of Christian Louboutin’s signature studded designs.

When I think of a brand that frequently incorporates studs, I can’t help but think of Louboutin; he has used everything from solid-color to mixed-finish studs on his shoes for years. While Choo may not use studs as frequently, I’m having a hard time choosing which designer did it best. Let’s hear your vote in the comments!

Julianna Margulies walked the red carpet at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards this past weekend in a pair of minimal black Jimmy Choo Lucille Sandals and a bold, high-slit Giambattista Valli gown. These exact sandals don’t appear to be available online, but you can shop a broad selection of Jimmy Choo at Neiman Marcus.

Jimmy Choo sandals have been popular with celebs in recent weeks, despite the fact that it is still January. We’ll be bringing you even more of our favorite shoe picks from the SAG Awards earlier today, and you can check out our faves from last year in “The Best Shoes of the 2013 SAG Awards.”

Shoes: Shoe of the Week: Jimmy Choo Trace Leather Cutout Bootie

Price: $1,575 via Neiman Marcus

Why It’s the Shoe of the Week: Laces and cutouts never looked so good! Jimmy Choo redefines the little black bootie with this new design. Finish your look with these boots and you’ll be chic as can be.

Here’s Jessica Chastain, walking into the Jimmy Kimmel Live studios in a purple suede pair of Jimmy Choo Xenia Sandals. If you’re thinking that those heels look a little high, you’re not wrong; this is one of the highest heels Jimmy Choo makes. You can currently find a slightly shorter-heeled, black version of the Xenia for $695 at Net-A-Porter.

Oscar nominations were announced yesterday morning, and shockingly, Jessica wasn’t nominated for anything this year, despite the fact that she appeared in leading or supporting roles in at least three extremely Oscar-buzz-worthy films in 2014. Awards season just won’t feel the same this February.

Here’s tennis star Maria Sharapova, shopping in Beverly Hills with boyfriend Grigor Dimitrov, a fellow pro tennis player from Bulgaria. She’s styled a simple navy shift dress with a dramatic black statement necklace and a pair of low-key, Jimmy Choo Demi Slip-On Sneakers. You can currently find a pair of these artsy, black and gold slip-ons for $420 at Bluefly.com.

Slip-ons have had something of a fashion moment in 2014, and if you don’t believe me, you should check out some of our preferred designer slip-ons of the year. If you have a hard time spending a month’s salary on a shoe that is functionally and structurally identical to something you can buy at the mall for $40, well, we sympathize. Here are our 5 favorite slip-ons that retail for under $500.

Shoes: Jimmy Choo Dwyer Boot

Price: $1,395 via Jimmy Choo

Why It’s the Shoe of the Week: It’s the first day of December, so that means we’ll be wearing all kinds of boots for the foreseeable future. Luckily, boots don’t have to be a drag, as you can see from these Jimmy Choos. This architectural boot features that fun pop of color you need as you trek through whatever weather winter throws our way.

Just like Manolo Blahnik, Stuart Weitzman and Prada have done in the past, Jimmy Choo will now offer a Made-to-Order option on its e-commerce site. As more brands begin to roll out bespoke options, brands continue to up the ante; the options at Jimmy Choo are some of the most elaborate we’ve seen so far.

When you begin the customization process at Jimmy Choo, first you must choose from four signature styles: the Anouk, Xenia, Lance and Tite. From here, you can choose various heel options, which range from 2 to 4.8 inches. Next, you choose a material, which is one of the most impressive parts of Choo’s process. While other made-to-order options from other brands offer basics like leather, suede and satin, Jimmy Choo’s customization offers up to seven options that include various leathers, exotics and metallic glitter. To finish your shoe, you can monogram the sole with up to four letters.

To demonstrate, I’ve gone ahead and created a few customized heels to peruse before you make your own at Jimmy Choo. Unfortunately, shipping is not yet available for Made-to-order shoes in the US and Canada; you’ll have to create your own shoe and bring it to a Jimmy Choo boutique, where they can place the order for you.

Jimmy Choo’s Vices capsule collection is full of exotics, crystals and many other specialized materials. The collection, which is part of Cruise 2015, was inspired by creative director Sandra Choi’s loves for gems and jewels, and the brand collaborated with artist Mat Collishaw to shoot the campaign.

This opulent, 18-piece collection features ten pairs of shoes and eight clutches. Each shoe features different textures and materials, but all are statement pieces. Check out the collection below.
