Shoes: Shoe of the Week: Saint Laurent Paris Skinny Pointy Toe Pump

Price:$695 via Nordstrom

Why It’s the Shoe of the Week: Your basic black pump gets kicked up a notch with Saint Laurent’s cheeky, chic red lipstick pattern.

Here’s Chrissy Teigen, looking supermodel-perfect as she leaves her apartment on a particularly drizzly day in NYC. She’s wearing a gorgeous pair of black leather Saint Laurent Chain-Draped Ankle Boots, which you can currently purchase for $1,645 at Net-A-Porter, but hurry–stock appears to be limited.

Chrissy’s Saint Laurents look particularly on point with her matching moto jacket and snakeskin effect handbag. Like all supermodels, Chrissy has a busy 7 days ahead of her as New York Fashion Week shifts into full gear. She sat front row at her pal Lauren Conrad’s NYFW show Wednesday night, and I’m sure there are many more front row seats reserved in her name.

Friends, it’s officially ankle boot season. Here’s Hailey Baldwin, ringing in the good news while doing a little shopping in downtown NYC. She’s wearing a gorgeous (yet potentially treacherous) pair of Saint Laurent Janis Ankle Boots. You can find Hailey’s exact boots for $1,495 at LUISAVIAROMA.

As it happens, Hailey’s also carrying a large shopping bag from Saint Laurent. Looks like someone’s a big SL fan. If you’re on the hunt for hot new ankle boots, you can expect to see a lot of new designer offerings trickling into stores in September. In the mean time, you can check out some of our choice picks from last fall, as well as our fave ankle boots under $500.

Sofia Vergara was recently spotted running errands in LA in pair of leopard-print suede Saint Laurent Bianca Sandals, which seems like an extremely Sofia Vergara thing to do. Sofia’s exact sandals are currently (and somewhat shockingly) ON SALE for only $399 at Barneys. That’s almost 70% off of the original retail price of $995.

Fun fact: we have zero photographic evidence that Sofia Vergara ever wears flats, and to this day, we have only ever seen her wear sneakers once. She is far more likely to wear extremely high-heeled Louboutins, Saint Laurents and the like, even with her most casual ensembles. You can peruse Sofia’s extensive collection of designer pumps in “The Many Shoes of Sofia Vergara”.

Demi Lovato is having a tiny love affair with her Saint Laurent Bianca Sandals. Here she is, leaving the Greenwich Hotel in NYC wearing her new favorite Saint Laurents, which have been expertly paired with an amazing strapless floral jumpsuit. Demi’s exact sandals can currently be found for $945 at This is the second time we’ve seen her wearing these shoes in the last two weeks.

Demi is also carrying a beautiful, daffodil yellow Céline Tie Tote. When we last saw Demi in her Saint Laurent Biancas, she was wearing an entirely different jumpsuit and carrying a small black Saint Laurent Sac de Jour. I’m not sure if Demi has recently changed stylists, or if she’s just made a serious commitment to a more jumpsuit-centric summer look, but in any case, it’s working for her.

Here’s Demi Lovato, working the press circuit in NYC in a pair of white Saint Laurent Bianca Sandals. Demi’s exact sandals are currently on sale (!!!) for $661 (down from $945) at Bergdorf Goodman. Demi is also carrying a black, textured calfskin leather Saint Laurent Small Sac de Jour Bag, which can be had for $2,890 at Net-A-Porter.

Ms. Lovato has a fair bit to promote at the moment; she’s currently an advocate for the National Alliance for Mental Health’s “Be Vocal: Speak Up for Mental Health” campaign, which launched last week, and Demi also recently announced that she’s starting a record label with her pal Nick Jonas called Safehouse Records, which will be a division of Island Records.

Mariah Carey was seen “out and about” with her entourage in Soho on Wednesday afternoon. Her extremely diva-worthy all black ensemble includes a pair of black patent leather Saint Laurent Janis Pumps. You can currently find Mariah’s exact SL pumps for $795 at Saks.

Anyone who’s ever taken a passing glimpse at a Mariah Carey album cover should know that sky-high pumps have basically been Mariah’s jam since the dawn of time. She’s extremely partial to Louboutins (that’s why I have to assume that the woman in the Louboutin boots behind her is on her official payroll), but it’s not at all surprising to see her in a pair of these extremely popular Saint Laurents.

Ashley Tisdale was recently spotted heading into some kind of boutique fitness class in LA in a fabulous (but not exactly work-out appropriate) pair of Saint Laurent Gladiator Sandals. As you can see, she’s also carrying a black Céline Nano Luggage Tote. You can find Ashley’s exact sandals for $1,795 at Saks, but Céline handbags are only available from Céline boutiques.

Our regular readers will probably notice right away that these sandals look like a more upscale, overbuilt version of the extremely popular Stuart Weitzman Gladiator Sandals, which Ashley Tisdale also owns and loves. Since neither of these brands invented knee-high gladiator sandals, I doubt this will be cause for much dispute, but it’s worth noting that the Stuart Weitzmans cost a mere $398 at Nordstrom.
