The 10th Annual Style Awards kicked off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2014 the other day. As expected, a slew of fashionable stars graced the event, from celebrity designer Nicole Richie to stylist-at-large Rachel Zoe. We ended up shoe spotting, of course. There were a lot of pointy pumps at the event, but honestly, only a handful of heels were interesting enough to warrant serious attention.

Check out who and what caught our eye at the 10th Annual Style Awards below. And while your at it, might as well tell us who rocked the best look of the night in your opinion.

1. Bridget Malcolm in Gianvito Rossi

Aussie model Bridget Malcolm opted for a see-through mini dress and finished it with equally transparent pointy-toe PVC heels. From the looks of it, she was sweating in her shoes, too, given the “steam” on the plastic. Nonetheless, the cap-toe pumps were stunning enough to earn her a spot here.

Bridget’s pumps are from Gianvito Rossi. They’re made from black patent leather and transparent PVC. What you see is what you will get with these shoes, namely pointy cap toes and super slim heels that are 4 inches tall. Do you think it’s ever possible to rock a pair without sweating in them?

2. Kate Upton in Jimmy Choo

Kate Upton, who was named Model of the Year at the event, kept her look classy in a black Altuzarra dress and bordeaux-hued Jimmy Choo pumps. We couldn’t tell if the pair was the “Anouk” or the “Abel,” but we’re guessing it was the latter. Do you think our hunch is correct?

3. Lily Aldridge in Louis Vuitton

Lily Aldridge wore Louis Vuitton from head to toe. She finished a sporty-looking sequined tee dress with white bow-tip pumps that feature extra pointy toes. The pair also comes with really narrow block heels. Her shoes look vintage yet modern — the kind of shoes we here at YNS would love to grab and keep for the rest of our shoe-holic lives.

4. Lindsay Ellingson in Nude Peep-Toe Pumps

Victoria’s Secret angel, Lindsay Ellingson, was ravishing in a bright red frock that she finished with nude laser-cut-detailed peep-toe pumps. Truth be told, the first time we saw the pair, we were ready to turn away because it didn’t exactly look extra special from a distance. However, thank goodness we made an effort to do a close inspection because they’re gorgeous! Can you help us ID them?

5. Nicole Richie in Vivienne Westwood

Nicole Richie wore a well-decorated Antonio Berardi top-and-trousers set and finished the edgy look with triple-strap platform Mary Janes from Vivienne Westwood. The tastemaker was definitely ahead of the game with her fashion-forward style — a risky choice that reaped quite a good number of nods.

6. Julie Macklowe in Gold Sneakers

Who could miss socialite Julie Macklowe, who attended the event in head-to-toe gold?!

We’re talkin’ serious gold here — a gold strapless long layered frock paired with gold dangling earrings and gold sneakers. You probably will never find us in the same outfit, but we have to admit that she looked like she was having a really great time wearing those comfortable shoes.

Honestly, we have yet to find out where she scored the glimmering pair, but just in case you want her sneakers, here’s a neat option from Steve Madden that will easily give you the fix:
