The Look Of Lipstick Jungle: Nico’s Impressive Platforms (And Look-Alikes We Can Afford)

November 13, 2008 by Rebekah

It wouldn’t seem like Kim Raver – who stands at a model-esque 5’8” – needs towering platforms with every outfit. But if this is what it takes to look as amazing as she does in every frame, we’ll look into it.

Here’s what we found, thanks to SeenON: In last night’s episode, Raver (as Nico Reilly) wears these Brian Atwood sandals ($680) in on-trend purple, and Dior’s calfskin peep-toes ($590). They’re both gorgeous, but the upwards-of-$500 shoe market isn’t where we usually fall.

To get the look of Nico’s purple patent platforms without the price tag, try these Chinese Laundry sandals ($80). They're chunkier than the Brian Atwood ones, but that really just means you’ll be able to walk in these.

These Nine West slingbacks ($56) provide the luxe textured look of Nico’s Dior pumps, along with a 4” lift and that same peep toe to show off your pedicure.

One pair whose price tag doesn't send us running: Nico’s Calvin Klein platform pumps , available on Amazon for $104 – a pretty good deal for a pair of interesting but staple-worthy, walkable work shoes.
