Famous faces and leggy models flocked to Roberto Cavalli’s boat party in Cannes last week. Such shindigs generally encourage guests to attend barefoot, and this designer-hosted event was no exception. Luckily, we managed to snag some pictures of the shoes some of the celebrities wore before they took them off. Here’s a rundown of the heels that stood out that night:
Christian Louboutin T-Strap Pumps on Dita Von Teese
We spotted these sleek strappy pumps on Dita Von Teese last week. The burlesque queen wore the pair with a sheer blouse and embroidered cropped trousers. Naturally, she looked exceptional.

Dita’s pumps are the Christian Louboutin “T-Slick.” They feature 4-inch-tall heels and a rather unique t-strap, double-ankle-wrap silhouette.

Manolo Blahnik Ankle-Strap Sandals (?) on Kylie Minogue
These glam golden ankle-strap sandals were spotted on Kylie Minogue as she stepped on Cavalli’s boat ramp. As you can see, they’re quite simple but also very sexy. She used the pair to cap off matching separates consisting of silk shorts and a silk button-down top.

It took us a while to identify Kylie’s sandals. Based on the shape of the buckles and the inscription at the bottom, they seem to be a pair of “Chaos” from Manolo Blahnik. Did we guess it right?

Jimmy Choo Sandals on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
We certainly didn’t miss Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s crisscross high-heeled sandals that evening. She used the pair to cap off a stunning LBD detailed with cutouts.

Rosie’s sexy crisscross ‘Xenia’ sandals from Jimmy Choo feature towering 5-inch-tall stilettos that will literally make you teeter. Several renditions of the ‘Xenia’ are available online, from snakeskin to black suede.

If the heel height is a little too much for you to manage, you can try Xenia’s little sister instead. The “Lottie” features the same crisscross silhouette as the Xenia, but with slightly shorter heels at 4 inches.

Gold Studded Mules on Sharon Stone
It was difficult not to look at the studded mules Sharon Stone wore for the occasion. They were bedecked with gold paillettes from front to back. The seasoned-but-drop-dead-sexy actress wore the shoes with a beaded black dress that showcased her svelte figure and fabulous legs.

We’ve yet to ID Sharon’s lovely slip-ons, but if you fancy them, you can achieve the look for much less by grabbing a pair of gold slides. Once you’ve acquired those, work on decorating them with gold studs. Easy, right?

Satin Ankle-Wrap Sandals on Heidi Klum
Not as exciting as the other shoes but just as noticeable were the white ankle-wrap sandals worn by Heidi Klum. She had them cap off an equally pristine white gown. Truth be told, Heidi’s whole outfit looked more wedding-appropriate than boat-party-appropriate.

Knee-High Gladiator Sandals on Fiammetta Cicogna
Perhaps the most striking heels at the party were the knee-high gladiator sandals worn by Italian model, actress, and TV host Fiammetta Cicogna. She rocked her strappies with a short Baroque-inspired dress that looked a lot like a Valentino creation.

Fiammetta’s knee-high gladiator sandals have not been identified yet, but if you want to steal her look, you can easily do so with these sandals from Tildon. These shoes feature 4-inch-tall heels, 15-inch-tall shafts, and a silhouette that is guaranteed to steal the spotlight. And a pair will only cost you $100.
