The TNT channel celebrated a huge milestone on July 24 — its 25th anniversary. It was a star-studded affair held at the Aqua Star Pool of The Beverly Hilton hotel.

We guess the celebrities at the event wanted to honor the theme of the classic channel by keeping their ensembles equally simple and classic — that’s probably why most of the stars’ footwear were pretty traditional, too.

We spotted most of the guest celebrities in 5 timeless shoe trends. So, instead of our usual show and tell, we’re giving you 5 shoe showdowns, aka shoedowns, of the top 2 celebs in each style. Who do you think wore each style best?

Shoedown 1: Angie Harmon vs. Cara Santana in Wavy Strap Sandals

Angie Harmon, a model turned actress who plays detective Jane Rizzoli in ‘Rizzoli & Isles’, wore Jimmy Choo “Lang” sandals in metallic silver. She paired the shoes with a cool and edgy Azede Jean-Pierre mini dress in black leather. Angie also carried the Christian Louboutin “Marquise” spiked purse that matched her silver Jimmy Choos.

While Angie looked cool and edgy at the event, Cara Santana went the sophisticated and clean route with a Lorena Sabru turtleneck dress paired with Emilio Pucci multistrap sandal booties. Her shoes look a lot like the Jimmy Choo “Zinc” sandals.

Shoedown 3: Emma Bell vs. Sasha Alexander in T-Strap Sandals

You probably recognize Emma Bell from ‘Final Destination 5’ or ‘The Walking Dead’. She also stars in ‘Dallas’. The young actress looked very feminine in a floral-printed dress with quarter sleeves. She finished off her look by wearing metal-detailed sandals from Giuseppe Zanotti.

Do you recognize Sasha Alexander from ‘Dawson’s Creek’? She played Pacey’s sister, Gretchen Witter! It’s a far cry from her role as Dr. Maura Isles in ‘Rizzoli & Isles’. At the event, Sasha looked ultra-femme in a knee-length printed dress. She kept her footwear simple with Fendi laser-cut t-strap sandals.

Shoedown 4: Heather Locklear vs. Julie Gonzalo in Bedazzled Black Pumps

Heather Locklear is the newest addition to the TV show Franklin and Bash. She may be over 50, but she can still pull off a form-fitting sheer dress, which was exactly what she did at the event. The actress paired her outfit with Christian Louboutin “PIgalle Spikes” pumps. It gave her ensemble the right amount of edge.

Julie Gonzalo, another actress starring in ‘Dallas’, also went for all-black; she wore a sleeveless cropped top and cropped pants. She, too, opted for embellished shoes but steered away from the usual spikes and studs. She wore Kate Spade “Licorice” glitter pumps in black.

Shoedown 5: Mary McDonnell vs. Nadine Velazquez in Black Pumps

The ‘Major Crimes’ star, Mary McDonnell, was the epitome of classic beauty in a dark red dress and classic black pointy-toe pumps. Can you believe that she is 61 years old? She certainly pulls it off well, do you agree?

Nadine Velazquez, Mary’s ‘Major Crimes’ co-star, showed off her fabulous body and flawless skin very appropriately in a short bronze dress. She also wore black pumps, but ones with thicker heels. We can see why Nadine was Maxim’s hottest girl of 2007.
