It’s always interesting when stars walk into a courthouse. Luckily, in this instance, they were walking in for Vanity Fair’s 2013 Tribeca Film Festival kick-off party. New York’s State Supreme Courthouse was transformed into an elegantly lit venue for the party on April 17.
It’s a good thing we didn’t spot any criminal footwear at the party. We saw everything from cool and edgy to preppy and traditional. Here are our favorite shoe picks. Which one is your favorite?
Christine Baranski in Manolo Blahnik ‘BB’ Pumps
The star of ‘The Good Wife’ looked chic and age-appropriate in her knee-length red dress with Manolo Blahnik black patent leather pumps. We love that her pumps look metallic silver, so it is classic and trendy at the same time. Do you agree?

Gretchen Mol in Red Pumps
The actress from ‘Boardwalk Empire’ went the more traditional route. Mol opted for an LBD with hot red patent leather pumps. You can never go wrong with that combination. What do you think?

Vera Wang in Walter Steiger Platform Booties
Vera Wang, a renowned wedding designer, came in an edgy ensemble, wearing black pants, a hat, and Walter Steiger open-back booties with curved heels. We love these cool, stylish boots. What about you?
