Jessica Chastain in Hand-Embroidered Paul Andrew ‘Shakti Soir’ Pumps

We love bold shoes, and we love them even more when they’re paired with bold clothes. Jessica Chastain is the gal who dared to take that fashion risk at the photo call for her new film, ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby’, at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival yesterday. Shunning the usual black, nude, or white shoes, Jessica paired her velvet-leaf-patterned Honor dress with striking embroidered pink satin pumps and got excellent results.

It helped that Jessica’s dress was all black. Despite the busy leaf pattern, the details of the meticulously hand-applied embroidery on Jessica’s shoes still stood out against it.

Archaic fashion rules dictate that we should only let once piece of an outfit “talk,” but we think that rule doesn’t apply when the shoes are as beautiful as Jessica’s! Even Paul Andrew, the shoe designer himself, couldn’t resist featuring the pair here in its own special Instagram snap:

How would you wear the Paul Andrew “Shakti Soir” pumps? Would you pair them with a printed dress like Jessica Chastain did or would you opt for more neutral colors to let them take center stage?
