Stars like Blake Lively, Jessica Alba and Ivanka Trump all towered over the red carpet in sky-high heels at the 24th Annual Footwear News Achievement Awards at MoMA last night in New York City. The man of the evening was Christian Louboutin, shoe designer to the stars, who was being honored as Person of the Year.
“He is just the man of my dreams,” the fashionable actress said, who presented the award. OK, sure, but what about the shoes?!
“They’re magical!” she said. “It’s like the same feeling you got when you watched ‘Cinderella’ as a child. Every time you slip on a pair of his shoes, they make you feel empowered and beautiful.”
What shoes did Alba sport?
Jessica Alba came with the co-founder of Toms Shoes, which donates footwear to children in developing countries. However, she too sported those famous red soles!
“They’re a classic punk, but the spikes make them a little bit hard core,” she said of her killer black heels.
Ivanka was there to promote her upcoming line of footwear which will be sold at Macy’s and Nordstrom’s starting next week. But she wasn’t feeling the Louboutin love. Her fave shoes?
“Now they’re all Ivanka Trump,” she said. “My days of supporting competitive brands are numbered.” Oh, don’t worry, I’m sure your shoes don’t even come close.
