I’m not a person who gravitates toward brights for my own wardrobe, and even if I were, I think I’d have long ago been worn down on the idea by all the “pop of color” nonsense that’s been pushed on fashion fans for what seems like an endless number of season. Just give me a black or silver shoe and let me be, ok? Read More…

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Daniela Pestova recently helped celebrate the magazine’s 50th Anniversary Issue and Barbie collaboration by wearing a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood ZigZag Pumps that perfectly reference the original Barbie’s iconic black and white swimsuit. Has a pink carpet ever been more appropriate, really? You can get Daniela’s exact pumps for $773 at MATCHESFASHION.COM.

In case you were unaware, Barbie got her own Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover this year (it’s an extremely limited edition), which of course has garnered considerable outrage from various bloggers, opinion columnists and feminist media, for reasons that should be pretty obvious. Read More…

With Fashion Week coming to a close after so many great collections, it’s a shame that we have to wait until the summer to see these collections hit retailers. Even thoguh you’ll still have to wait to receive your fall shoes, Moda Operandi has a trunk show for the Nicholas Kirkwood Fall/Winter 2014 collection that might soothe some of your shopping angst.

Legendary supermodel Rachel Hunter recently attended a party in LA celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The party, as you can probably guess, was absolutely chock full of supermodels, but Rachel easily had the most interesting shoes: these Nicholas Kirkwood Lace Up Booties. This signature style is what really put Kirkwood on the map with shoe lovers, but by all indications, it’s no longer in his lineup. Read More…

Like Louboutin is known for the red sole, is Nicholas Kirkwood establishing himself as a master of outsole ornamentation? We’ve seen this tactic previously with pearl embellished bootie, and now Kirkwood has swapped a pearl for a crystal ball with the Nicholas Kirkwood Swarovski-Embellished Suede and Satin Sandals.

After seeing these pumps on Moda Operandi, I immediately remembered the love and admiration I had for the pearl-embellished bootie. Read More…

The thought dawned on me after I created the image you see above that you can wear one pump on each foot and it migh look as though these Nicholas Kirkwood Zig Zag Crystal Pumps and these Nicholas Kirkwood Zig Zag Leather/Suede Pumps were designed that way – a slightly mismatched pair. While these pumps are very similar, the wearers that gravitate toward each version are probably very different, which only makes for an interesting brand-on-brand edition of Shoe Battles. Read More…

Being the planner that I am, I’m always thinking of was to revamp my winter wardrobe instead of always defaulting to an all-black everything ensemble. (Hey, a girl needs to start soon – in the fashion world, we are already planning for spring.) This was just the sprinkle of inspiration I needed to write this post. When browsing my favorite shopping sites, I couldn’t help but covet these Giuseppe Zannotti Peep Toe Chain Booties, as well as the Nicholas Kirkwood Embellished Point-Toe Pumps. Read More…

It’s easy to hate Gwyneth Paltrow simply because she has/does it all, but you really can’t hate her for her for dastardly good fashion sense. Here’s Gwyneth at the LA premiere of Thanks for Sharing (a rom com about sex addicts and those who love them) in Nicholas Kirkwood Stacked Heel Sandals. If you’d like to follow Gwyneth’s lead, you can score these exact sandals for $955 at Forward. Read More…
