Elle magazine’s 2014 Women in Hollywood Celebration took place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills on Monday. In attendance were a lot of, well, famous women we’ve seen either on TV or on the big screen.
One thing we enjoyed about this event was the significant amount of shoe action involved, thanks to the kind of fashion the ladies put out for the night. Most of them came in short frocks, while others opted to wear pantsuits. At the end of it all, it was a lot of fun checking out the heels they used to go with their outfits.
Here are the 10 female celebrities whose shoe choices stood out at the event. Who do you think should get the award for Best in Footwear?
1. Renee Zellweger in Christian Louboutin
Renee Zellweger used a pair of gold-detailed “So Kate” pumps from Christian Louboutin to go with her black Carolina Herrera dress. The shoes feature towering 5-inch-tall heels, so they’re no joke to walk in. We couldn’t find the exact pair Renee wore, but you can get the classic So Kate pumps from stores, such as Barneys and Neiman Marcus.
2. Michelle Monaghan in Christian Louboutin
Actress Michelle Monaghan also wore Christian Louboutin for the occasion. Her choice, however, was a little more adventurous. She slipped on the “Impera” lace-up pumps, which were the perfect match to her very simple dress. This style is sold out everywhere.
3. Emmy Rossum in Christian Louboutin
Emmy Rossum channeled “lady boss” for the occasion by slipping into a Versace pantsuit. She styled the combo with smoky eye makeup and some fancy glitter pumps from Louboutin called the “Geo.” These shoes are detailed with spiked toe caps. Emmy’s pair isn’t available online, but a more classic rendition is available at Saks.
4. Doutzen Kroes in Block-Heel Sandals
Doutzen Kroes flaunted her very trim post-baby figure in a one-of-a-kind pair of block-heel, ankle-strap sandals on Monday. She used the shoes to cap off a simple white dress. The look was very understated but still elegant. If you fancy Doutzen’s sandals, try the pair from Tory Burch below.
5. Nikki Reed in Jimmy Choo
While we can’t say we were happy with Nikki’s outfit choice for the evening — as it was a tad unflattering — we were glad she at least paired the piece with fancy strappy sandals from Jimmy Choo. Nikki wore the “Lang” sandals in pewter gray. You can grab the Lang at Neiman Marcus. They retail at $775.
6. Kerry Washington in Christian Louboutin
New mom Kerry Washington also chose Christian Louboutin heels for the occasion. She used the “Miss Rigidaine” pumps to punctuate a very short dress from Calvin Klein.
The Miss Rigidaine feature PVC panels along the vamps and heel counters. While we agree that they’re dainty and exquisite, we feel Kerry should have chosen a more adventurous pair to go with her dress. What do you think?
7. Julianne Hough in Metallic Pumps
Julianne Hough channeled minimalism with her outfit choice for the event. She wore a simple blue Calvin Klein dress and finished the look with metallic silver pointy pumps — a pair from Casadei’s famous Blade collection. Below is a nude version.
8. Britt Robertson in Christian Louboutin (?)
Former Secret Circle star Britt Robertson graced the event looking like she was at a prom. Her dress was not the most flattering in terms of color and cut. Thankfully, her strappy heels made up for the lack in glamour. Britt slipped into a pair of mixed-metallic sandals that looked a lot like the “Mariniere” from Christian Louboutin.
9. Elizabeth Banks in Stuart Weitzman
Elizabeth Banks surprised a lot of people when she arrived at the event in a girly fuchsia frock detailed with a million floral appliques. It was a busy dress, no doubt, but she styled it perfectly with a simple ankle-strap sandals from Stuart Weitzman — the famous “Nudist.”
10. Amy Poehler in Ankle-Wrap Pumps
We weren’t too happy with Amy Poehler’s dress choice for the evening, but we did enjoy looking at her shiny ankle-wrap platform pumps. While platforms are no longer en vogue, hers were classic and elegant enough to withstand seasons. Perhaps you can help us ID her shoes?
