The upcoming season of True Blood is set to air on June 16, and with only a few days left before its kickoff, the stars and some other celebrities have gathered together at the ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome on June 11 for the sixth season premiere of the HBO series.
There were a lot of pretty and stunning looks on the red carpet, but we’ll only feature those celebs whose heels caught our attention. Check them out below, and share your favorite(s) with us.
1. Anna Paquin in Saint Laurent “Tribtoo” Pumps
Let’s start with Anna Paquin, who is top-billed in the series. She captured a lot of attention in a sexy black dress from David Koma’s fall 2013 collection. It’s a sporty crepe dress with leather trimming and a modern-looking hoop skirt. Her black Saint Laurent pumps matched the boldness of her dress. They have 5 1/4-inch sky-high stiletto heels and 1 1/4-inch hidden platforms, which added more height and sexiness to the 30-year-old actress.
Looks like these pumps are making a comeback in the red carpet scene, huh?

2. Rutina Wesley in Casadei Spring/Summer 2013 Sandals
Rutina Wesley, who plays Tara Thornton in the series, wore a cleavage-baring sweetheart dress in white, which she then styled with a pair of black-and-gold Casadei sandals. They’re made of satin with metallic gold nappa trimming, and they feature vamps with intricate straps in loops. Completing these sandals are 1-inch platforms and about 6-inch stiletto heels.

3. Lucy Griffiths in Proenza Schouler Spring 2012 Wedges
Lucy Griffiths clearly wanted all eyes either on her pretty face or on her wedges. Her v-neck, long-sleeved jumpsuit is plain but sexy; still, it’s her heels that captured our attention. Her Proenza Schouler spring 2012 wedges showcase retro and vintage pieces. The shoes’ details include smooth and pebbled leather, color blocking in black and brown, snipped peep toes, and cutouts. They also have adjustable slingback straps and 4 1/2-inch platform wood wedges in stripes and with a raised arch. These shoes obviously carry an architectural design!

4. Anna Camp in Christian Louboutin “Summerissima” Sandals
Anna Camp was also on hand at the premiere because she is reprising her role as Sarah Newlin in the show’s 6th season. Anna looked very pretty in a red Zac Posen dress, which she matched with Louboutins. We’ve first seen these sandals a year ago, and we are not surprised to see them again today. They’re just so chic with their color-blocked, mixed-media style. These sandals’ crisscross black patent straps go up the ankle, plus they also feature blush suede platforms, straps across the toes, and red suede heels.

5. Jurnee Smollett in Sam Edelman “Scarlett” Pumps
Friday Night Lights‘ Jurnee Smollett showed off her curves in a body-hugging black leather dress. We’re not fans of this piece, though, and it even looked like the actress had a hard time moving in it. Anyway, her heels did complement her fierce dress. They’re from Sam Edelman, and they feature metallic textured vamps with t-straps and peep-toes plus contrast black ankle straps and heel counters with tonal spiked studs. These glam-meets-punk pumps are finished with 5-inch metal pin heels that are sure to add not only height but also extra luxe.

6. Kelly Overton in Zara Sandals
We’ve seen Kelly Overton in Season 5, and it looks like we will be seeing her again in True Blood Season 6. The 34-year-old actress was elegant in a simple black dress. This piece definitely needed some bold heels, and it’s great that her pair of Zara caged sandals perfected her look. These suede sandals feature strappy uppers that create sexy cutouts. They also have zipper fastening at the back and about 4.25-inch heels.
