There's always an 'It' shoe of the season, and it usually comes courtesy of shoe designer extraordinaire Christian Louboutin.
Last spring, it was the ‘Bis Un Bout’ style with its unusual transparent panels that were spotted on everyone from Emma Stone and Kristen Stewart to Rihanna and Kim Kardashian in an array of colours – think hot pink, neon yellow, shimmering silver and classic black. (Not to mention, that it’s been much copied by other famous fashion labels. We’re not mentioning any names!).
Well, it seems that the French designer has done it again for spring 2013 with the new must-have shoe of the season, that we’ve spotted on not one, not two, but three well-groomed stars in the past couple of weeks.
The new design in question? It’s the ‘Pivichic’, which carries on with the transparent shoe trend but features diagonal stripes across the front of the shoe. In one of her best looks for years, trend-setter Sarah Jessica Parker was the first star to wear the hot pink style, when she attended the New York City Ballet’s annual benefit gala in a sexy black dress and fluffy blue Misha Nonoo coat.
Next up was doe-eyed actress Mila Kunis, who wore the same pair to add a pop of zingy colour to her midnight blue trouser suit at a press conference for her new film, Oz the Great and Powerful. Last but not least, Hollywood golden girl Kate Hudson was also spotted in the design as she accompanied Muse rocker fiancé Matt Bellamy to a Brit Awards after-party on Wednesday night.
Other notable wearers include teen actress Chloe Moretz, Django Unchained star Kerry Washington and pop songstress Katy Perry – who all opted for the black version.
Want to get in on the Pivichic action? The shoe will set you back £475 and will be available to buy in spring through the CL website, as well as the Mount Street boutique in London. We’ll race you there…
