Jimmy Choo, Stuart Weitzman & More Are Re-Making Cinderella’s Glass Slipper
Have you ever wondered if Cinderella lost her glass slipper on purpose? Maybe it didn't just fall off when she was rushing to get home before the midnight. Maybe she just thought they were ugly or uncomfortable (because, you know, they're GLASS). Well, clearly I'm not the only one who thinks things like this, because some of the best shoe designers in the game are coming to her aid and designing glass slippers of their own, in honor of the upcoming live-action Cinderella movie, in theaters this March. According to Vogue UK, designers like Jimmy Choo, Stuart Weitzman, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia and more have designed ranges of shoes, from pumps to sandals, made from glamorous materials such as Perspex and Swarovski crystals, inspired by the fairy-tale nature of Cinderella's glass slippers. The shoes, which are set to be sold at key retailers like Harrods, Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC and Beverly Hills, and Galeries Lafayette in Paris, will be unveiled just before Valentine's Day, in case you were still looking for the perfect gift.

Jimmy Choo’s Best-Selling Pump Is Sold Out Everywhere Except The U.S.
Imagine if a something you posted on social media spread around the globe so fast that it became popular in Asia, Europe and the U.S. Sounds scary, but not for Jimmy Choo. When Jimmy Choo's Abel Anthracite Lamé Glitter Pointy Toe Pumps ($595) appeared in the new Korean soap opera, "My Love From the Star," it began to disappear from the shelves in Shanghai, Bejing and Seoul. People were going into stores with screenshots and pictures on social media of the shoe's appearance on TV, and since then, the shoe's popularity spread to Europe and then to the U.S. making it a global best-seller. It was actually selling so fast that manufacturers couldn't produce the shoe as fast as it was selling. Not only does this show how much Asia influences the rest of the world's consumers, but it also shows just how important social media has become to retailers. The pump is part of Jimmy Choo's "Anouk" family from the Choo 24:7 collection, which was already in stores for four months before it became popular. The Abel pump in anthracite sold out in Asia in December and was sold out in the U.S. by February, but it looks like the shoe has been restocked online, because it is available in one size! So if you're a size 11 you're in luck and you should grab the Anthracite Abel pump NOW before it sells out again. But if you're interested in the Able pump in a less popular color like bronze or black, you can shop for them at Nordstrom. Jimmy Choo Abel Anthracite Lamé Glitter Pointy Toe Pumps ($595) For more shoes, check out: gladiator sandals, slide sandals, and white sneakers.

Rob Pruitt x Jimmy Choo Will Satisfy The Lisa Frank-Obsessed Fifth Grader In You
Rob Pruitt isn't your ordinary 1980s pop-artist, what with his signature glitter zebra, dégradé color and, well, everything neon, so when we heard he'd be collaborating with Sandra Choi and Simon Holloway of the ultra-glamorous Jimmy Choo label, we just kind of cocked our heads and waited for the beauty. But as it turns out, the iconoclastic humor of Pruitt melded quite nicely with the label's already festive sensibilities. Case in point: a confetti patent-and-zebra-print glitter wedges, which retail for $1,095 and are sure to make you the center of attention in any room, Anna Dello Russo and her headpieces be damned. "I think about birds and bees and how they’re attracted to the colourful and architectural audacity of flowers," Pruitt said of his inspiration for the limited-edition collection. "I use glitter in my artwork in hopes that the viewer will experience the same magnetism toward my artwork that birds and bees experience toward flowers." Glitter, indeed. The trippy 18-piece range, which feels a little bit like heaven according to Lisa Frank, is available for pre-order today and it includes everything from a $1,225 jacquard panda bear-motif tote bag to $895 leopard-print boudoir mules with a zebra-print heel, finished with a marabou feather pom-pom, because why the hell not? But the most-wanted piece of the entire limited-edition capsule comes in the form of a devil-panda-shaped minaudière clutch, made with more than 11,000 hand-applied Swarovski crystals. The devil, as well as his angelic counterpart, both retail for a hot $15,000 each. Only 12 were made for the collection, and each is signed by the artist so you better scoop yours up quickly. The entire collection will be in Jimmy Choo boutiques and online in November, if there's any neon-and-leopard inventory left. For now, click through the slideshow to see our favorite Rob Pruitt x Jimmy Choo picks! Want more collaboration news?

Jimmy Choo Plans Collaboration With Pop Artist Rob Pruitt
Pop artist Rob Pruitt is the latest in a string of contemporary artists and photographers to collaborate with high-end shoe line Jimmy Choo. In an interview with WWD Choo creative directors Sandra Choi and Simon Holloway said they were "captivated by Pruitt’s energy, his computer-screen use of color and the festive exuberance of his prints and materials." Past Choo collaborators have included Nan Goldin, for the 2012 cruise Icons collection; Marilyn Minter for the 2011 Crystal collection; and Richard Phillips for the spring 2008 collection. Pruitt's line will debut as part of the brand's 2013 cruise collection and will include shoes, handbags, and small leather goods, all no doubt infused with the artist's playful pop sensibility (his latest work is a giant chrome Andy Warhol statue on display in Union Square).

Real Housewives Of NJ Grab Your Credit Cards: Jimmy Choo UGG Collection On Pre-Sale
Thanks to a little tweet by Nicky Hilton, the first fringed boot from the Jimmy Choo for UGG Australia collection hit the web a little earlier than planned. At the time, we called the gaudy, studded black boot something only a Hilton sister could love. Now that we've seen the full collection, which includes leopard styles like the Kaia ($595), we realized it is also suited for the Real Housewives casts of New Jersey and California, like Teresa Giudice. Who else could afford $600 lounge boots and has this taste level of leopard studding?

At that price, and with cheesy star studding, this gaudy leisure boot is truly one that only a Hilton sister could love. Nicky's been a fashion victim before, and with this ugly pair in her arsenal, she's sure to be a subject of our red carpet re-do's all fall. Now check out some black flat boots for fall that we can get behind: Over the knee boots are hands-down our favorite fall shoe trend this year, and these Jeffrey Campbell Lubbock Black Suede ($156, down from $240) are super sexy and already marked. You cannot beat that. Pair these Cole Haan 'Air Liberty' Flat Boot ($298) with skinny jeans and you are good to go for outdoor events, shopping, brunch - you name it. These Steve Madden Bonanza ($79.95) slip on easily, are made of a super-soft slouchy suede, and have a rounded toe and heel that make them super comfortable and all-day wearable.

Jimmy Choo’s New $600 Sneakers Are Actually Selling Out Fast
Stiletto brand Jimmy Choo is branching out into comfortable shoe territory--but it doesn't come cheap. While Choo's upcoming collaboration with Ugg boots (!) is slated for October, the Daily Mail reports the brand has created six sneaker designs-three hi-tops and three low-tops--available for pre-order now. The kicks, made of leather, suede, and exotic skins, range from $465-$595, are (oddly) selling out fast and already have a waiting list for new stock shipping next month.

What To Wear With A Lace Dress
We’re pretty pumped to see summer’s lace trend gain momentum for fall in new and creative ways. Great for striking that magical balance between innocent girly girl and sultry temptress, much to our chagrin, the fabric formerly got a bad rep as a result of over-exposure via early 90s pop stars. Now it’s back (and better than ever). Wearing lace is definitely a delicate matter, which is why we’ve put together a useful guide for all your lace-buying needs. The key with lace is finding equilibrium – dress down a sexy dress with a pair of stomach-flattening solid black tights and instead of heels, slip on some knee-high suede boots. To offset the ultra-feminine fabric you’ve got on, we recommend an oversized boyfriend blazer. As for accessories, keep it simple and let your lace do the talking – try a black bag with a long chain strap, but leave the jewelry at home ladies. Topshop Gold Lace Bodycon Dress, $80 SPANX High-Waisted Tight-End Tights, $38 SMYTHE Tweed Slouchy Boyfriend Blazer, $550 Steve Madden Tyller Boot, $79.90 Urban Renewal Remade Leather Cinch Bag, $38 Looking for more items to accompany a lightweight dress?
