Here’s Angelina Jolie, pausing to comfort/take selfies of healing with an overwhelmed fan outside of The Daily Show studios in NYC. Her humanitarian reflexes just won’t quit. Angelina just happens to be wearing a beautiful pair of black suede Saint Laurent Paris d’Orsay Pumps while performing her requisite daily random acts of charity, a factoid which most other media outlets will probably fail to mention. You can currently find these exact Saint Laurents for $645 at Nordstrom.

Angelina is very particular about her designer wares. She does not seem to own a single Chanel bag, which makes her an extreme rarity amongst A-list celebs. In the last year, we’ve only seen her carrying the latest bags from Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton. Angelina doesn’t have her own edition of “The Many Shoes of…” just yet, but you can browse through her carefully curated handbag collection in “The Many Bags of Angelina Jolie” on PurseBlog.

Here’s Ariana Grande (who is apparently a pint-sized superhuman resistant to the UK’s frigid temps), greeting fans outside of BBC Radio 1 in London. She’s wearing a pair of the ever-popular Saint Laurent Janis Pumps, which you can currently find in both black and barely-there pink hues for $795 at Saks.

These pumps are super popular with extra petite celebs like Ariana and Scarlett Johansson. We actually saw Ariana wearing these exact same pumps, and traveling with the exact same body guard, in London just a little over a year ago. Her then-boyfriend didn’t survive the transition to 2014, unlike her gorgeous Saint Laurents.

This weekend, I bought a gorgeous white coat in the style of Olivia Pope, and I’m swooning! I wore it yesterday for the first time and realized I had to avoid a lot more dirty surfaces on my way to work than I would if I had worn my usual black coat. My love for this coat is so strong, though, that I’m willing to take my chances. If I were this careful wearing a white coat, would I be able to survive wearing pristine white shoes in the dead of winter?

As much as I love everything and anything white, white shoes can be tricky because the faintest backsplash from a puddle will leave a hard-to-clean mark. You may be able to get away with white boots in winter if they have a lug sole to walk through slushy streets, but otherwise you’ll likely be looking more at your feet than what’s in front of you. If New York wasn’t such a dirty place, I would definitely wear an all-white boot in the winter.

If I wore my white coat with these Saint Laurent boots, I’d look as glamorous as a Kardashian. If you’re inclined to wear this Saint Laurent Paris Leather Boot, buy yours through Net-a-Porter for $995.

Here’s Kris Jenner, wearing a pair of Saint Laurent Patent Knee Boots with an unusual sort of couture-Catholic school girl ensemble while frolicking around Paris with her daughter Kendall. Kris’ boots are new for fall, and they are currently available for $1,495 at Net-A-Porter. Kendall is wearing the fan-favorite Alexander Wang Anouck Boots, which you can pick up for $595 at Barneys.

Kris, Kendall, Kim, Kanye and North have all rolled into town for Paris Fashion Week, natch. The Kardashian clan seemed to keep their distance from NYFW this year, so as not to detract attention from their sister Kendall, who is making her mark on runways all over the world this season. It seems such courtesy does not extend to Paris Fashion Week, or probably any Fashion Week held on foreign soil.

Luxury brands are the start of a larger domino effect when you’re looking for emerging market trends. When new styles and fads emerge from luxury fashion, the biggest trends often ripple down to contemporary fashion, followed by the mass market. With that in mind, I felt a little worried after seeing some of the new fall shoes from Saint Laurent, available at Net-a-Porter and MATCHESFASHION. It leaves me wondering if Hedi Slimane may be giving glitter its fifteen minutes of shoe fame.

Anyone familiar with me knows I love all things that sparkle and shine, but this abundance of glitter cheapens the allure of the shoe. Last fall, Miu Miu placed crystals on the heels of their shoes, and swapping glitter for crystals made all the difference. If we see more glittery shoes emerging in the upcoming months, we know where to point our finger.

Heidi Klum recently hit the America’s Got Talent post-show red carpet wearing a dazzling pair of solid white Saint Laurent Janis Pumps. If you’re shopping for a similar pair, you can find Janis pumps in ivory for $795 at Saks. To browse through more of Heidi’s best looks, bags, and shoes (and a few that we find…questionable), click over to “The Many Bags of Heidi Klum.”

This is exactly the Heidi we like to see. All supermodels have their particular strengths, but Heidi has great shoulders and great legs (and a “whimsical Viking goddess” vibe that she should be legally allowed to trademark); this outfit shows both off resplendently. I don’t even mind the gold, military-style shoulder fringe! It all seems most appropriate for Ms. Klum.

Unfortunately, fur-covered boots are nothing new. Somehow, they seem to have snuck their way back into fall deliveries, despite your thoughts on fur. After some time spent in the fashion industry, things startle me, but occasionally I see something so bad that I can’t help but stare at it. As frightening as these Saint Laurent Goat Hair Ankle Boots are, I couldn’t look away from my computer screen when I found them.

This sheepdog look will startle innocent bystanders and leave them thinking that you possibly have small animals tied to your ankles. (And you do, sort of.) In addition to that, one of my many concerns with this boot is cleanliness. No matter the street, sidewalk or floor upon which you want to wear these boots, they will be ruined in a matter of seconds. My next concern is the studded, wraparound embellishment. It’s half covered by the goat hair, and because some hair is peeking over, it basically looks like my hair when I wake up in the morning: a disheveled mess. On top of that, I can’t think of a single thing in my closet (or in my endless Internet closet) that I could pair with these boots to justify them. No jeans, leather pants or leggings could make these boots work for me.

But don’t let my feelings stop you! If you wish to scare young children away, definitely grab a pair at Net-a-Porter for $1,995.
