The quickest way to hype up a look is by putting on a pair of knock-out heels. That’s a no-brainer and you all know it’s the best way to cheat a not-so-fabulous outfit. Well, that’s exactly what Minka Kelly did last Friday (April 13), while the Charlie’s Angels actress attended the opening of a Jenni Kayne store in Brentwood, California.
While Minka’s all white Jenni Kayne ensemble looked incredibly immaculate, her choice to use just a silver clutch and zero colorful bling made her look drab rather than fab. BUT we were quick to forgive. You see, to make up for the lack of color on top, Minka used a set of colorblock ankle wrap sandals that were simply toooo gorgeous to ignore:
A glance is all you need to actually make you forget about the ho-hum outfit. Those are the Christian Louboutin Summerissima Sandals – a suede on patent combination in Red, the barest of Nude, and Black, with sky high heels of about 5.5 inches. Below is a closer look at the shoe. It retails at a hefty $995 if you want it:
Do you like it?
It’s a bit sporty and very sophisticated. There’s a LOT you can use it with, and that will probably be more than enough reason for most to buy it. However, if spending $995 on shoes is simply too sinful to even consider, try Minka’s style with any of these colorful Nine West LookGlobal Ankle Wrap Sandals instead. A pair will only set you back $89:

Update: The following month Minka Kelly donned yet another amazing outfit that we want to share with you. She wore a Temperley London dress, H. Stern jewelry, and topped it all off with a pair of gold glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps:
