The amfAR New York Gala took place yesterday, and as expected, famous celebrities, “it” girls, and leggy supermodels were in attendance. We didn’t see much shoe action. However, the one pair that took our breath away was enough to make our day. The heels in focus were worn by none other than Lily Aldridge. And much like her standout stilettos, the supermodel was also a vision to behold at the event.
Lily stole the show last night when she sashayed into the arrival area in a white off-shoulder gown detailed with capelike sleeves and a fluted yet flowy skirt that simply begged attention. The neckline of her dress was cut low to a sweetheart shape, and she decorated it well with a perfectly appointed accessory — a small gold serpent necklace draped over her nape and collarbone.
Her makeup was also as immaculate as her gown. It was pristine yet dark, and it offered a beautiful contrast to the lightness of the Rossie Assoulin creation she was wearing. Lily was as regal as a queen that night, and she certainly was the best dressed.

Now, let’s go back to Lily’s gorgeous footwear. She paired the dress with these nude crystallized satin ‘Bailey’ sandals from Tabitha Simmons. Besides the obvious dazzling add-ons, these shoes also feature lace-up details on the back, double buckled straps at the ankles, cutouts on the vamps, and slim 4.25-inch-tall heels.

The Bailey sandals come in several renditions, from classic suede to leopard print. Lily’s nude pair is actually perfect because it goes with practically any outfit. It’s very neutral, yet also feminine and dainty. Dying to grab yourself a pair? They’re yours for a hefty $1,345 at Neiman Marcus.
