Lanvin is on a roll. Day in and day out, we see the label churn out shoes that could make any woman sigh with wanting. Just the other day, we obsessed about Hilary Duff’s Lanvin Puzzle Ankle Wrap Wedge Pumps. Today, our fixation is set on another Lanvin pair – the Lanvin Ankle Cuff Plexi Wedge Sandals.
It was spotted on tall and leggy Cameron Diaz last Wednesday (March 30), while the Bad Teacher star attended the CinemaCon event. And while it may be worth mentioning that she bagged the Female Star of the Year award at the convention, what truly made our shoe headlines were those cuffed sandals on her feet.

From afar, they look like your normal stiletto heels, right? But check it out up close and be surprised:

It’s actually a pair of wedge sandals! As you can see, the inner part of the wedge is all made of plexiglass, while the visible “heel” part is a steel bracket that supports the whole shoe.

Very interesting, right? It’s actually not our first time to see this type of wedge from Lanvin. We saw it on Rachel McAdams and Gwyneth Paltrow last year, when they wore Lanvin’s Spring 2011 Mesh Ankle Strap Wedge Pumps.
Of course, aside from the wedge, we also didn’t miss the interesting criss-cross decorated cuff, as well as the extended and curved platform. Altogether, we think this pair from Lanvin is undeniably sexy. If you like it as much as we do, and you can afford its $1487 designer price tag, then feel free to pre-order it in your size at LuisaViaRoma (April 30 arrival).
