The new creative director of YSL, Hedi Slimane, may have ruffled some feathers for changing the brand’s name to Saint Laurent–but here’s one thing he definitely did right in his first year with the company: these ‘Janis’ pumps. The t-strap platform pumps have clocked a lot of mileage this season; pretty young things like Carey Mulligan, Lena Dunham, Michelle Williams, Rita Ora, Nicole Richie, plus veterans like Kate Moss and Salma Hayek have all worn them to various red carpet events, premieres, etc. The shoe is so in demand, it has many YSL fans forgetting about the longtime favorite, the Tribute pump. Tribute who?
Get ’em: Saint Laurent Janis T-strap pumps ($875).
Or the cheaper look-alike: Adrienne Vittadini Cecelia pumps ($99).
