One of the most talked about moments from this past weekend’s Academy Awards show was not a musical number, not a gorgeous gown, not a misplaced expletive… it was Anne Hathaway’s Swarovski crystal encrusted Brian Atwood pumps worn with her Lanvin tuxedo. Twitter exploded with “who made Anne’s shoes?” and “I’ve got to get my hands on those pumps.” Certainly a victory for both Mr. Atwood, himself, as well as Anne’s stylist, Ms. Rachel Zoe.
For quite a while, the go to glamour girl pump was Christian Louboutin, but it looks like there’s a new “it” shoe in town. Basically, if you’ve heard of the actress, she’s worn the shoe. Everyone from Blake Lively to Cameron Diaz to Dianne Kruger has been spotted strutting her stuff in these sexy stilettos.
So has Hollywood traded in the flash of a red sole for the styling and simplicity of just a great shoe?
