Jamie Chung was spotted celebrating New York Fashion Week with Nine West Wednesday. The actress was a special guest at the brand’s New York City event, to fete fall fashion and Nine West’s latest fall ’15 campaign.
“It’s a brand that I’m quite familiar with. They are always on trend and always make comfortable [styles],” she told FN. “It’s all about women in heels and how much confidence they give you. It’s so true — when you put on a pair of shoes, you feel better.”
Chung also stars in a video, in collaboration with In Style, that will launch on the Nine West site Sept. 17. The spot showcases Chung in her favorite pumps and provides a sneak peek at her “fashionable life on the go.”
Also on-hand at the event were Natalie Alyn Lind from “The Goldberg’s,” Bryan Greenberg and Cara Santana.
Here, Chung shares some shoe secrets and fun facts.
1. She owns a lot of pairs of shoes in her personal collection.
“Between New York City and L.A., I would say over 100.”
2. Her celebrity crushes include Rihanna and Beyonce.

3. She prefers heels over flats.
“It depends on the mood, but the majority [of the time] I’m in high heels. It’s fun to wear a super-crazy pair of high heels.”
4. Chung’s first designer purchase was Stuart Weitzman.
