When going for a specific look, FN is of the mindset that it’s the shoes that complete the ensemble.
From red carpets to catwalks to after-parties, these stylish celebrities know how to work their shoe magic by choosing styles that are best for them (sometimes even repeating the same looks!) and by often sticking with their tried-and-true beloved designers. All season long, Alexa Chung has been spotted in a favorite pair of sleek black ankle booties, which she pairs with knee-length dresses in a variety of colors, while Julia Restoin Roitfeld has gone over the top (of the knee, that is) for winter with black thigh-highs.
Not to be outdone or out-shoed, actor Jared Leto remains consistently bold in his footwear choices.
The Oscar winner, who is a fan of YSL, is likely to show up to premieres in bright white brogues or sparkling or graphic-print smoker’s shoes, which he’s chosen on several occasions.
Actor Eddie Redmayne, in contrast, goes for a more subdued style, often getting his shoe shine on with a pair of patent oxfords.
