“I love a heel; I’m not a flat girl,” said Elizabeth Chambers Hammer, who was in good company with shoe designer Mary Alice Malone at the launch of her red carpet collection.
The red carpet fixture celebrated the Malone Souliers founder’s line for the 2020 awards season on Thursday in Los Angeles wearing the creative director’s Marguerite mules featuring flattering curves on the side and bow embellishments that coordinated with the bows on her dress straps.
Elizabeth has been a fan of the luxury label’s footwear for nearly six years. The TV personality said it was love at first sight when she wore the Maury pump, describing it as “different and edgy and still classic.”
“I feel like with every dress, you choose an amazing gown, you choose an amazing look and then everybody just chooses a really basic strappy style or a pump,” she added. “Her designs are so extensive, she doesn’t stop with one.”
Elizabeth knows plenty about the importance of a standout shoe and style moment. She shared that alongside her husband, actor Armie Hammer. They used to purposely coordinate their looks, but over the years their synchronicity became intuitive.
“We used to kind of coordinate, and then I was really focused on what I was doing and [Armie] was focused on what he was doing, and then it weirdly always works — it’s so strange,” she explained. “I guess that’s what happens when you’re together for 13 years. You have some subconscious thing; if we’re not matching, then we strangely complement each other still. It’s freaky how it works.”
In addition to the red carpet collection, Malone also debuted her men’s line, which featured refined loafers done in woven patterns and crystal embellishments.
Malone launched her line in 2014 with Roy Luwolt, former co-founder and CEO. Malone left the company in July 2018 and returned last December. Sales for spring ’19 were up 176 percent compared with fall ’18, according to the company.
