Good Taste With Alessandra Ambrosio

Schutz doesn’t need a show at fashion week.

The Brazilian footwear brand invited the style crowd to its Madison Avenue location to meet the face of its fall ’14 campaign: Alessandra Ambrosio.

The model arrived in a colorful corseted dress by Emilio Pucci and lace-up Schutz Buthayna patent pumps just in time to check out Jeremy Penn’s red and blue painting of her Ambrosio’s footwear ad.

Here, the model talks to Footwear News about her love of travel and style icons.

How does it feel being painted? Jeremy’s a great artist — I look at it, and it was really the way he does it.

Style Icon: I get inspired by movies, Sophia Loren, Brigitte Bardot. I get inspired by the classic icons when I get dressed.

Movie you can watch on repeat:
I always love that movie “Stealing Beauty,” by Bernardo Bertolucci with Liv Tyler. I used to watch it when I was younger.

Favorite pair of shoes? My Schutz espadrilles — I wear them all the time, so comfortable.

Your Style In 3 Words: Forever on vacation.

Favorite Vacation Spot: Everywhere: I love Hawaii, St. Barts, Bali, St. Tropez, Ibiza. Where there’s beautiful blue water, where the sun is, that’s what I like.
