Stylist Micaela Erlanger is a major Paul Andrew fan. The stylist to the stars, who touts big names like Lupita Nyong’o as a top client, has been dressing a handful of celebrities in custom looks by the designer.
Here, Erlanger shares shoe secrets from dressing the stars in Paul Andrew.
What do you enjoy most about working with Paul Andrew?
“I will never forget the first time I met Paul and walked through his collection. The shoes were so feminine, so luxe and yet still so classic.”
What do you love most about his designs?
“Paul’s shoes are without question a client favorite. The designs are beautiful and they are incredibly comfortable – making them shoes that we all look forward to wearing!”
Top standout celebrity moments?
“Paul has made custom shoes for me a number of times – they have always been absolutely perfect for the occasion. A few favorites are: the Zenadia red shoes Lupita wore to the Golden Globes (with the Ralph Lauren gown); the Leros white suede custom sandals Lupita wore to the Critics Choice Awards (Calvin Klein cutout gown), and the custom Noho red pumps Olivia Munn wore to the Met Ball this year.”
Any client or celebrity feedback to share?
“I have to say that the shape and silhouette of his designs are so unique and look beautiful on the foot. His use of color or fabric or skin is forward thinking and fresh, and very importantly, you don’t have to compromise on the style for the comfort!”
