The Hottest Celebrity Shoes of December 2013

The month of December decked the halls with spectacular shoes.

We saw fantastic footwear choices from some of our favorite stylish stars, such as Alexa Chung, Beyonce Knowles, Camila Alves, Olivia Wilde, Felicity Jones, Katy Perry, Leslie Mann, Gwen Stefani, Daisy Lowe, and Victoria’s Secret Angels Karlie Kloss and Adriana Lima. Celebrities showed up in gorgeous shoes for red carpet events such as the 2013 British Fashion Awards, Nylon magazine’s December Issue Party, and Billboard’s Annual Women in Music event. Paloma Faith picked up the Ultimate Style Icon award while wearing Giuseppe Zanotti, and Jennifer Lopez accepted the Grace Kelly award in Christian Louboutin heels. Some of our favorite actresses, including Julia Roberts, Juliette Lewis, and stylish newcomers Lupita Nyong’o and Margot Robbie, displayed their enviable sense of style during promotional tours for their films. We marveled at Alessandra Ambrosio’s model-off-duty looks, Fearne Cotton’s effortlessly cool work outfits, and Mandy Moore’s impressive street style. This month, we featured a rundown of Gabrielle Union’s shoe moments and took a peek at North West’s adorable shoe collection. December also introduced us to the latest shoe designs of Charlotte Olympia and Conspiracy by Gianluca Tamburini.

With the Christmas season, we offered ideas for festive shoes and holiday party heels. Celebrity siblings, such as the Hilton sisters and the Kardashian sisters, were spotted shopping for Christmas gifts in style. We also featured holiday-themed collections from Charlotte Olympia and De Siena.
