When it comes to shoes, it would be unlikely to find a woman who would say she has enough of them. It would be also unlikely to find a woman who is able to think logically and pragmatically when she notices her dream shoes on a shop window or in an online shopping site.
And while we, ordinary women, dream of being able to add at least a pair of Jimmy Choo or Manolo Blahnik to our collection of shoes, let us have a look at the brands celebrities are fond of.
It is not a secret that there is a strong competition among designers and each one of them strives to attract a big celebrity to make their new fashion collections even more popular.
At the beginning of XX century, Salvatore Ferragamo made a revolution in the world of fashion by developing the basic models of designer shoes for women. After he started working in Hollywood, Ferragamo became the favourite of Hollywood celebrities, as among his clients he had some of the sex symbols of XX century like Merilyn Monroe, for whom the designer made shoes with very thin high heels, Audrey Hepburn (he made ballet shoes for her), and Ava Gardner, who immediately fell in love with the platform shoes especially made for her. Today, Jessica Alba, Eva Mendes, Anne Hathaway, Hilary Swank, Angelina Jolie are keen on Salvatore Ferragamo’s shoes.
Which girl does not want shoes by Manolo Blahnik?
The character from Sex and the City, Carrie Bradshaw, was fond of Manolo Blahnik, and Madonna once shared that Manolo’s shoes are even better than sex. Undoubtedly, the Spanish designer has managed to subdue the hearts of plenty of star girls, among which are Uma Thurman, Rihanna, Jennifer Gardner, Andie MacDowell, Nicole Kidman, Natalie Portman, Kim Cattrall.
Jimmy Choo, just like the legendary Blahnik, takes his place in the hearts of Hollywood stars. Carrie Bradshaw herself appeared with Jimmy Choo’s shoes on her wedding with Mr. Big (and this girl cannot be forgotten by any girl). Jimmy Choo’s shoes stand out with their comfort, which does not take from unique design at all, and this is one of the basic reasons for lots of celebrities to prefer his shoes for special occasions like first nights, etc. Among the fans of the brand are Nina Dobrev, Kate Middleton, Heidi Klum, Renée Zellweger, Katy Perry.
Louboutin makes fashion revolution with his red soles, which women all over the world are fond of. Some time ago, during a fashion show, Christian Louboutin decided that something was missing in his shoes, and he painted the soles of the models’ shoes with red nail polish before they went out to the catwalk. The red sole immediately caused a craze, and it is still Christian Louboutin’s trademark. Today lots of celebrities cannot imagine that they would not have at least several models of Christian Louboutin in their wardrobe. Among the designer’s fans are Emma Watson, Gillian Anderson, Elle Macpherson, Halle Berry, Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Giuseppe Zanotti’s shoes are exquisite work of art. The designer offers not only a number of extravagant models, but also classic models of women’s shoes; and the designer himself declares that his shoes are intended for women with strong character. Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Beckham openly state their love for the brand.
