By now, you’re all familiar with one of the brands we included among 2015‘s shoe designers to watch, Malone Souliers. It’ll soon be a year since I had the chance to chat with the London-based designer Mary Alice Malone about her first collection when it arrived at Bergdorf Goodman, and ever since, I’ve been following the brand with interest. For Fall 2015 Malone Souliers captivates us with luscious suede, more contrasting color, and the return of interesting mules.

The brand loves to play with juxtaposing colors, and the results feel much more sophisticated and natural than other colorblocked shoes I’ve seen on the market. The rich contrasting colors are sleek and look ultra luxurious, especially in suede. The brand continues to reinvent the controversial mule, and its signature lace-up sandal makes another seasonal appearance. The ankle boot is a new style being added for Fall 2015, and it is one of my all-time favorites from the brand. It’s modern, innovative and sleek, which perfectly captivates the Malone Souliers brand.

Check out the newest collection from Malone Souliers below.

Here’s Mom star Anna Faris, walking the red carpet at the LA premiere of Jurassic World with hubby Chris Pratt. Anna is wearing a metallic silver pair of Stuart Weitzman Myslide Sandals, which really pop with her textured silver minidress. A very similar pair is currently available for $415 at Neiman Marcus.

The mule-style Stuart Weitzman Myslide is stylistically very similar to the Stuart Weitzman Showgirl Sandal, which has also been popular with celebs in recent months. If you’re curious as to what other covetable sandal styles the brand might be hiding, you should definitely check out The 6 Stuart Weitzman Sandals You Need to Know About.

Actress Grace Gealey (aka Anika on Empire) recently donned a gorgeous pair of gilded PVC and leather Tamara Mellon Frontline Sandals to the Television Academy’s public Empire cast performance and Q & A event at The Grove in LA. You can find Grace’s exact sandals for a mere $595 at Saks.

If you’re an ardent fan of Empire (and who isn’t, at this point?) you may be relieved to know that Season 2 will make its debut on FOX on September 23rd. Empire fans may also be interested to know that Grace and her Chanel-loving Empire costar Taraji P. Henson are both frequent fliers on our bi-weekly celebrity handbag round-ups on our sister site, PurseBlog.

Like mother, like daughter! Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with matching mother-daughter shoes? Whether you’re an expectant mom, a new mom or a mom with grown kids (or not even close to being a mom, like myself), there’s no denying the cuteness of these doppelgänger itty-bitty baby shoes!

The arrival of Princess Charlotte had me thinking about how they will be dressing the newest member of the royal family (and if Princess Charlotte will be twinning with momma Kate–my mind tends to wander). In honor of Mother’s Day, check out all our favorite matchy-matchy mother-daughter shoes!

Our moms taught us everything we know, especially when it comes to shoes. Mom’s a shoe connoisseur, and her knowledge has been passed down to you. She taught you how to tie our shoes, how to try on shoes and how to score that awesome shoe deal. Throughout the years, you’ve probably noticed your mom has her favorite go-to shoes, and we looked into what your mom’s shoes says about her!

Here’s Kate Upton, making her way to a fashion panel at the Vogue Festival in London in a gorgeous pair of black lace Kurt Geiger Britton Pumps with gilded pin heels. You can own the exact same pair and strut like a supermodel for $330 via Lord & Taylor, reduced from $550.

Kate sat on a panel with Bobbi Brown cosmetics creator Bobbi Brown on Sunday afternoon to discuss how Bobbi created her vast make-up empire. (Kate happens to be the current face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics.) Christian Louboutin and Jean Paul Gaultier also did panels over the course of the weekend.

[Editor’s Note: As we spend some quality time with our family and friends this holiday, we are scaling back our editorial and will be back to our regular schedule after the New Year. Also, we’re in the midst of trying something new: from now on, our biggest features will appear on PurseBlog. Until the New Year, we will be running both new content along with some of these features that were posted on PurseBlog.]
