I first saw Balmain’s exquisite Mesh Strap Sandals on Celine Dion’s feet, when she attended the 2010 Grammys a few months ago. She paired the shoes with a bejeweled dress by Aquilano Rimondi.

For some reason, although the Aquilano.Rimondi dress was really stunning, what I noticed were her shoes!
Celine’s Balmain sandals will cost you $1,395. It IS truly expensive; but it is also truly divine.
Here’s another Balmain pair with mesh on it:
Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain Mesh Stud Sandals, $1,195 (Sold Out)
With these mesh strap sandals, Balmain will no doubt set another trend, much like the way it popularized the sequin on jackets, tees, and tank dresses.
Of course, let’s not forget that the brain behind these shoes is none other than Giuseppe Zanotti!
If you can afford to buy these fine Balmain creations, you may shop for it at Shopbop.
