Leighton Meester is another actress who is helping to start off our celebrity shoe spots for September on the right foot. She was at the premiere of her latest film “The Oranges” at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival yesterday and looked white hot in a head-to-to Alexander McQueen Resort 2012 ensemble.

The white and brown clutch she carried might’ve matched her outfit’s color scheme but Leighton decided to contrast everything with a pair of leopard print platform pumps with curved wooden heels. Leopard print pumps are commonly seen on the red carpet but have you seen leopard print pumps as fierce as these?
As mentioned at the beginning of this post, everything Leighton Meester is wearing here is from the Alexander McQueen Resort 2012 collection. Her shoes are the leopard print + wooden heel version of these curved heel pumps:

As these shoes are from a collection which is two entire seasons away, these are not yet available for purchase anywhere. You can however shop for the current Alexander McQueen shoe collection at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and Zappos.
A handful of designers do have their own curved heel shoe designs and they’re ready and available if you want to get this look NOW. Here are 5 curved heel pumps we found.
1. KORS Michael Kors ‘Elgin’ Hair Calf Curved Heel Pumps, $295.00
2. KORS Michael Kors ‘Eden’ Metallic Curved Heel Slingbacks, $250.00
3. Proenza Schouler Lizard Heel Pumps, $595.00
4. Costume National Burnished Leather Curved Heel Mary Jane Pumps, $592.00
5. Proenza Schouler Perforated Lizard Heel Pumps, $695.00
Nothing leopard print yet (we know how you YNS readers love leopard print!) but we’ll gladly take the cobalt blue color or the camel + nude combo.
What’s your take on the curved stiletto heel — do you think it makes a shoe look sexy or do you think it makes a shoe look squat?
Two years earlier, we spotted the fashionable actress in a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti heels at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. She styled her cutout booties with a sequined Christian Cota Fall 2009 dress, a Bottega Veneta clutch, and jewelry by Cathy Waterman.
