Jessica Alba looks young and playful wearing a Lanvin Resort 2012 strapless multicolour striped cocktail dress. Funny leather platform sandals completed this yummy look!
Freida Pinto looks just about equally delicious in a colorful Resort 2012 Michael Angel slip dress. Her Roger Vivier 1000 Brides blue and yellow sandals and a very fun and surprising twist to this already playful look.
I just saw the movie Immortals and boy did I fall in love! Isabel Lucas may simply be the most beautiful girl I ever saw. Her sexy yet young looking face is perfect! Plus, I just discovered that this Aussie actress has a very interesting style.
I’m not a big fan of hippie wear but Isabel’s style makes me appreciate it. By opting for simple, flowy pieces and pastel colors, she manages to look girly instead of filthy. Her pale peach full-length skirt (left) is simple heavenly!
If she looks girly and sweet on a daily basis, Isabel can still ooze a lot of sexiness. She is to die for in these blush coloured mini dresses. The pale colors make her dark tan pop.
The Australian actress shows that she has a very cool vide by wearing these trendy glasses. Hipster, gangster, Terry or nerdy, Isabel’s always trendy and oh-so-sexy!
The one in the middle may be a little too much, but the girl still pulls it off. She made headbands her signature look – and made me want to wear them too! They tone down any look (except for the middle one of course!) and give a playful, edgy twist to any normal outfit. Try it at home!
The LACMA’s Art and Film Gala definitely looked like a Gucci party since three looks from the house’s Spring 2012 collection were worn on the same night!
Evan Rachel Wood worked the 20s feel of the collection by paired her black and gold fringed frock with retro curled hair while Camilla Belle was ‘art deco meets tribal wear’ in her black, white and gold Gucci dress.
Both actresses looked great in these Gucci Resort 2012 numbers, but Zoe Saldana was definitely the evening’s winner – not that this is a surprise. The black and gold dress she donned has a beautiful gold chain detail draping down the open back. Her matching Gucci double chain ankle strap sandals from the same collection, loose updo and sexy makeup complete the look with effortless perfection.
Here are some celebrities who are falling head over heels with this beautiful, unexpected but still chic color :
Looking effortlessly cool as always, Rihanna stands out by topping her casuel jeans-and-a-white-tee outfit with an Acne Sini Fall 2011 mustard coat.
Georgeous Marisa Tomei lets her pearl embellished Marios Schwab Fall 2011 mustard gown take centerstage.
Lady Gaga acts crazy again by wearing a ‘normal’ out fit. The singer looks stunning in her Viktor & Rolf Resort 2012 yellow mustard pant suit. Love the way her black accessories echo the suit’s trims!
Frankie Sandford added some colors to her blue outfit by pairing it with a bright mustard jacket and orange open-toe pumps.
Beautiful Emma Stone looked flawless as always in a mustard Roland Mouret Maxim textured silk-gown from the Fall 2011 collection with black accessories.
Solange Knowles succeeded in following four great trends in a single outfit! She paired J. Crew mustard pants with a colorblocked INC top, finishing the look with leopard print YSL Tribute pumps and color-popping purple Emilio Pucci Marquise bag.
Now THAT’S some simple and effective style. Damn they’re hot.
YES, SHE DID IT AGAIN!
The eccentric star surprised us again by wearing something ‘normal’ at the iHeart Radio Music Festival, held last week in Las Vegas. She looked wonderfully normal and classy, challenging her inner Audrey Hepburn in a Moschino peplum dress. Love her stunning diamond jewels and leather gloves!
GaGa also surprised us back in August by wearing three not-so-over-the-top Versace dresses in the same week. It may look a little overdressed to any of us common mortals, but we must admit that seeing Lady GaGa like this is kinda like seeing Blair Waldorf step out in Uggs and joggings : definitely not what we’d expect!
What a nice trend!
It has a fun, summery feel but is still perfect for fall wear. I particularly love Gucci’s 2011 Fall Ready-to-wear collection, which is all basically made of color blocks looks.
Check out these celebs’ looks and take some inspiration for your work, school and / or week-end outfits!

#15 : DIOR SPRING 2009 READY-TO-WEAT ‘PAGAN FERTILITY GOD SANDALS’
There was no doubt that I’d put these shoes on the countdown. Even if their ‘wearability’ is definitely questionable, they look funny, unique and, well, awesome!
The mini goddess figurines sort of empower the women, like Mischa Barton here, wearing these shoes - even if they probably don’t need more confidence since they already have the guts to rock them at all! :o)
#14: GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI METALLIC FISHBONE SANDALS
These sandals, also worn by Samantha in Sex and the City : the Movie (remember that scene when she’s covered in sushis ?), take us back at the 2003 MTV VMAs - yes, on the same night Britney, Christina and Madonna kissed.
Beyoncé was already showing hey fun and risk-taking taste in fashion by wearing these I’m-certainly-not-taking-myself-so-seriously’ fish bones sandals.
Like US Magazine said at the time : ‘Sassy, not trashy!’
#13 : CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN ‘BRIDGET’S BACK’ GOLD SPIKY ANKLE BOOTS
Just earlier this year, at the 2011 Golden Globes Awards, Olivia Wilde showed us her wild side (I know, this one was so easy!) by pairing her gorgeous and glamorous Marchesa gown with some totally unexpected footwear.
Even if I’m not so fond of these peep toe Christian Louboutin booties, I must admit that they added a really fun twist to what was a very beautiful but still totally conventional ball gown.
#12 : CHANEL SPRING 2009 READY-TO-WEAR TULLE OPEN-TOE ANKLE BOOT WITH BOW DETAIL
These are like the shoe version of the classic Chanel tweed jacket!
Though I love the boots alone, but I’m not sure it looks good on the feet. Nonetheless, Diane Kruger paired them juste right : with a simple LBD so they would take center stage. Very classy.
#11 : CHANEL 2009 CRUISE COLLECTION ‘GUN HEELS’ SHOES
Chanel needed a killer lady to sport her funny yet sexy and dangerous platform Gun heels sandals – well, they got it.
I don’t think anybody could have rocked these shoes better than Madonna. Being funny yet sexy and dangerous herself, she clearly put this look off.
She’s stunning and looks powerful. BOOM BOOM POW!
#10 : APERLAI AQUA ‘JANE’ PUMPS
I love the fact that these shoes are eccentric and sophisticated at the same time, which also pretty much resume Kate Bosworth’s style, wearing the pumps above.
They give her neutral and simple Jonathan Saunders outfit a little kick without entirely stealing the spotlight.
This is the only pair shown in the countdown until now that you can really consider wearing on a normal day.
#9 : JIMMY CHOO ‘VIVIENNE’ BLACK, WHITE, RED AND PINK PLATFORM SANDALS
Even though I think Diane Kruger didn’t pair correctly – for once! – her gorgeous Jimmy Choo sandals with the right dress (with shoes like that, it certainly isn’t the other way ‘round!), this is still a great pair of fierce, fun and edgy shoes!
I’d wear them out on every single night. The seductive colors and many straps of the platforms make them look very, very sexy.
#8 : NICHOLAS KIRKWOOD FALL 2010 LACE-UP SPRAY PAINTED PLATFORM SANDALS
Living up to her alter ego’s Carrie Bradshaw style, Sarah Jessica Parker always has a great shoe trick upon her sleeve.
She impressed us many times by wearing Nicholas Kirkwood shoes.
Here are my two favorite styles, which differe from each other by the tint : the left and upper ones are aqua while the others (my favorites!) are blue with a touch of fuschia.
Funny and definitely on the cutting edge of fashion.
#7 : VALENTINO SPRING 2010 COUTURE NUDE, BLACK AND NEON GREEN SANDALS
Dree Hemingway clearly got everything right with this Valentino Couture outfit.
In fact, she got it right so much I just don’t know what to do or say about it… and I’m only supposed to comment the shoes here!
Well, I definitely love their matching-with-the-dress colors. But do I really have to mention that I’m sure they would look awesome with probably anything ?
Again, a sexy, classy and edgy pair of shoes – that totally fills me with neon green envy.
#6 : ROGER VIVIER PURPLE FEATHERED SANDALS
Talk about some sexy and funny statement making shoes! Purple, feathers and crystal are a totally winning combo for me here.
They have a glamorous and over-the-top feeling that flatters my inner Las Vegas dancer, but they’re still very wearable!
However, I certainly wouldn’t have paired them with this king of long multicoloured flowy dress like Selita Ebanks did.
A simple form-fitting black or white cocktail dress would have better showcased these flirty sandals.
#5 : BRIAN ATWOOD OPEN-TOE EMBROIDED BLACK, RED AND GOLD PLATFORM PUMPS
What a winning combo : the ultimate it-girl wearing the ultimate it-shoe designer!
These sandals were the perfect choice to complement Blake Lively’s young, sexy and flirty look.
Their fun feeling stopped the dress from looking too ‘vampish’ and made her outfit look fresh and unexpected instead.
Blake and Brian… I love you guys!
#4 : BRIAN ATWOOD ‘ALBA’ FUSCHIA PINK SANDALS
I hesitated for a while before putting these shoes on the 4th position. I mean, compared to the other ‘contestants’, these sandals look kinda plain.
However, I finally decided they deserve this high position especially since they’re not that fantasist (being worn by Zoe Saldana clearly helped them too).
I’m in love with the simple yet strong design, the bright candy pop color and the white apparent coutures. Yummy and flirty!
#3 : BURAK UYAN SPRING 2011 ARCHITECTURAL COLOR BLOCKED CORAL, BLACK AND WHITE HEELS
These playful sandals completely updated Cameron Diaz’s outfit at the 2011 Kids Choice Awards.
The sewed ‘straps’, the bold color mix, the cylindrical heel : everything about these shoes is original, fun and so edgy!
They totally deserve their 3rd position and commenting them makes me wonder what will I say about the two last ones. Simply perfect and breathtaking.
#2 : GIAMBATTISTA VALLI ‘VICTORIA’ ANKLE STRAP WHITE AND NEON PINK PEEP-TOE PLATFORM SANDALS
Okay, these shoes may not be as original as Burak Uyan’s ones, but I’va had a crush on them for a very long time! Indeed, these sandals, made by Valli in honnor of Victoria Beckham, are from the Spring 2008 collection.
Rihanna also sported the black and neon green version, but the white and pink combo definitely works better for me, especially since it’s part of one of Mary-Kate Olsen’s really rare outfits I like.
I’d volontarily wear these sandals on any friday night with my sexiest white mini! Ouch.
#1 : BRIAN ATWOOD ‘POIS’ KAKI, WHITE AND GOLD PUMPS
If you don’t know me, well you probably begin to : I’m an unconditinal fan of Zoe Saldana’s style AND of Brian Atwood shoes.
So it’s no surprise that the #1 of my most playful and sexy shoes ever is a Brian Atwood pair wore by no one else than, ta-da, Zoe Saldana!
Once again, I kinda am at a lost of words… The shoes are perfect alone, balancing sexyness and effortless swag, so paired with that bad-ass Balmain Resort 2012 ensemble that Zoe’s wearing, they leave me totally speechless.
This is like one of my favorite outfits ever : 10/10, if not more.

WHAT ABOUT YOU ?
Do you agree with this countdown ? Which pair of shoes would you have put as #1 ? Don’t hesitate to answer with other pictures. Thanks for sharing your opinion!
Here are some of the many, many stars who are falling for Mulberry handbags. And do we understand them! They look super chic, laidback and edgy - all at the same time!
From left to right : Mollie King, Sarah Jessica Parker, Emma Roberts, Katie Holmes, Fearne Cotton and Nicole Richie.
Take a look at some celebs who seem to just can’t live without these bags :
Mulberry probably noticed that she’s crazy over their bags because they designed the ‘Alexa’ one in her honor. Damn lucky girl!
Here’s another crazy-over-heels-for-Mulberry girl! She just can’t seem to get out of her house without her Mulberry bag. Too bad she’s always wearing the same. I’d like her to get a cream crocodile one, it would look great with her chic style!
The coolest mom on earth always steps out with, well, the coolest bag on earth. And she’s working out every damn hue sooo fine. Even at 40 or so she still looks sooo good!
GOSSIP GIRL’S BLAIR (LEIGHTON MEESTER) & SERENA (BLAKE LIVELY)
These always-following-the-latest-trend girls clearly got the memo when it came to Mulberry bags! Wether they wear them on the set or in real life, the gossip girls always look stunning with these perfect touch of finition.
KATE MOSS No one needed to tell this woman that Mulberry’s were the latest ‘it bags’… she probably started the trend herself! Anyway, she looks just flawless as usual and totally rocks the über elegant yet totally relax feel of these totes. KATE BOSWORTH Another cool and trendy girl wears these cool and trendy bags. Seems like the fashionable Kates of this world know that Mulberry bags are perfect for mixing chic and laidback looks! So pretty.

I love the fact that Rihanna takes these bags on a totally different level than what we’ve seen with the stars below. She wears them in a more edgy, less serious way. Love the way she reminded us of her native Barbados roots on the right picture by pairing this caramel Mulberry satchel with a busy and colorful printed flowy skirt.
CHIC, BUT NOT CHEAP
Haven’t got the money to offer yourself a splendid Mulberry bag ?
Take a look at Fossil’s handbags. They have the same old-chic feeling than the Mulberry ones - for a real fraction of the price. I got myself the one shown below in blue and I just love it! It’s good leather quality, really handy and it fits with everything I wear!
