Kate Beckinsale Tackles Falls Most Daring Trend in a Cutout Jumpsuit & Teetering Heels

Kate Beckinsale gave her twist on falls boldest trend this week as she promoted her new series, Guilty Party.


Taking to Instagram on Monday to preview her press day attire, the leading actress modeled a bright green and white jumpsuit from Roland Mouret. The $1,810 design features a crepe fabric with a sweetheart neckline and cutout panels across the torso and back.


Amongst a revitalization of 1990s and early 2000s silhouettes, cutout designs as well are making a triumphant return to the celebrity style scene this season from Cult Gaias beloved twisted dress to Monôts peek a boo designs. Stars like Saweetie, Kim Kardashian, Katie Holmes and more are major fans of the trend for summer.
When it came down to footwear, Beckinsale herself elevated her cutout look further with heels from Jimmy Choo. The lifted metallic sandals came with securing straps across the toes and ankle, all balanced atop a platform base and 5 inch heel.
For Beckinsale, the look this week falls in line with her typical everyday styles. The British actress oftentimes favors this particular set of black heeled boots, which she wears for everything from relaxed hangouts to outdoor excursions. In May, she even opted for the style for a dog walk in Los Angeles to top off her usual skinny jeans and embellished jacket look. Every now and then when the weather is right, too, the Pearl Harbor actress also taps Saint Laurent for towering sandals to match her triangle bikinis. Most recently, her go to pick of footwear has been Naked Wolfes platform sneakers, too.


When she is not enjoying her time at home or out for a stroll, Beckinsale opts for glam style on the red carpet with pieces from the likes of Jimmy Choo, Moschino and Julien Macdonald, amongst others.

Walmart Argues That it is Shielded From Yeezy, Kanye West Lookalike Shoe Case by Section 230

Amid an existing battle over lookalike logos, Walmart and Yeezy are facing off in court, as well, after Yeezy and its founder Kanye West filed suit against Walmart and a handful of unnamed third party Walmart sellers over the sale of copycat Yeezy foam runner footwear on the retail behemoths third party marketplace site. On the heels of Yeezy and West naming Walmart and co. in an unfair competition complaint in California state court in June, Walmart is looking to get the case tossed out of court on the basis that it is shielded from liability by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. 


According to the notice of demurrer that it filed on September 22, counsel for Walmart argues that West and Yeezy have failed to make their case on the unfair competition front, as they have not stated facts  sufficient to constitute a cause of action as a matter of law because the complaint fails to allege any unlawful, fraudulent or unfair conduct under the Unfair Competition Law  (namely, California Business and Professions Code s. 17200, which prohibits  any unlawful, unfair or fraudulent business act or practice and unfair, deceptive, untrue or misleading advertising,  and any acts that fall within a catch all provision). Specifically, Walmart argues that they fail to  plead actual misconduct by [Walmart] and fail to allege grounds for vicarious or secondary liability for conduct of the actual seller of the subject shoes.  


Walmart argues that  it is utterly unclear as to what  allegedly constitutes an unfair business practice  in the situation at hand, as Yeezy and Wests complaint  obscures all facts regarding the nature of the seller [of the lookalike footwear], fails to allege that [Walmart] participated in the creation or development of the product listings at issue, declines to identify a single representation made about the shoes by anybody, and fails to allege any facts related to [Walmarts] relationship with or control of third party sellers on its platform.

Tips To Wear High Heels Without Pain

Story: Heels are fantastic. They make you feel all glamorous and beautiful instantly, but there is no point of all this   if what follows is excruciating pain. More than two and a half decades of  heel wearing experience  have taught me a few things to keep in mind.




Moisturise Your Feet Well


There will be less friction as you move and you will not get blisters and burns.


Get Your Foot Size Right


Getting the foot size right is really important. Before buying a pair, ask the person helping you in the store to tell you the right foot size. Also, foot size changes, and not just while you are growing up, but also when you are all grown up. Check it at least twice a year.


Pay Attention To The Shape Of Your Feet


Some of us have narrow feet, some have wide; some have smaller toes, while some might have long fingers  There are so many variations.  If you have wide feet, I would advise not to wear closed tapered shoes. Wear wide front closed ones or open toe ones. Even those with smaller toes should opt for closed wide front shoes. The pointed front shoes will pinch your toes and make it very uncomfortable. Unfortunately, besides taking them off after an hour or so, there will be no other solution.
Block Heels Or Platforms


Block heels and platforms are way more comfortable than pointed heels. I know nothing can match up to pencil heels, but with the whole creativity boom happening in the design industry, you will find styles and shapes that would catch your fancy. They are as trendy as any!




Extra Cushions For Thin Soles


Shoes that have a thin sole, will cause pain at the bottom of your feet. Get a foot/cushion as that acts like a shock absorber. Rest your feet


Take a little rest every now and then while wearing heels. Stretch your feet a little. Your feet will get the break it needs 




Shoes With More Support


Wearing heels with more top coverage or an ankle strap or both will be a lot more comfortable. It provides additional support to the feet.




Precautions


Always do foot stretches after you take off the shoes (ask your doctor or simply search the web).
Ice pack on the ankles and back of the foot will take away the soreness.
Foot massage once in a while is a very good idea.

A MOMENT FOR THE SHOES AT THE LOEWE SPRING 2022 SHOW

Jonathan Anderson's runways for Loewe always attract an audience. But because the house's strong suit has historically been in accessories, there tends to be a sharper focus on the shoes and handbags that the designer unveils each season, which have a track record of becoming it items among the fashion crowd. 


In the days leading up to its Spring 2022 debut, Loewe (and Anderson) began teasing some of what we would see during its Paris Fashion Week show, particularly when it came to the accessories: close ups of black leather sandals with pink birthday candle and red nail polish bottle for heels, of a rose getting crushed under the weight of someone's step. Indeed, these playful, Dadaist shoes play a key role in a collection that the brand itself characterized as neurotic, psychedelic, completely hysterical. 
 The Loewe Spring 2022 collection is an experimental statement that marks a point of departure, and opens a new chapter, the show notes read. Provocation, sensuality, movement and amusement break up the Loewe mould. 
The apparel  with its draping, sculptural elements, movement and play with proportion  is inspired by the mannerist, hysterical world of Renaissance painter Pontormo, per the show notes. Then, there's the shoe reveal: a series of sandals and pumps where, in lieu of traditional heels, are ready made objects, including a cracked egg, rose and previously teased candle and nail polish, among other things. 
These shoes suggest fragility and spontaneity, the brand explains, and speak to the other underlying themes and feelings that inform the Spring 2022 collection. Elsewhere in the footwear assortment, Loewe's Flow Runner sneakers have been reissued in a translucent compostable plastic, and appear alongside Ugg like boots covered in a soft teddy fabric.


With this collection, new archetypes are defined, the show notes suggest. A collection that asks to be seen flowing in movement, as experimentation unfolds on living bodies in a real space. 


So  who will be the first to wear these ready made heels off the runway?

Balenciaga reveals a new Crocs collaboration for Spring/Summer 2022

The Crocs craze isn t going anywhere soon, and Balenciaga pretty much confirmed it for its Spring/Summer 2022 fashion show.


Well, it was actually more of a red carpet event than a runway: models and celebrities made their grand entrance outside the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris dressed in the new Balenciaga ensembles, feverishly captured by the paparazzi. It was all very reminiscent of the 2021 Met Gala, for which the French luxury brand dressed countless stars, including Kim Kardashian.
All this hoo ha was for the premiere of a special Balenciaga themed episode of The Simpsons  yes, the American satirical cartoon series featuring yellow hued characters like Homer and Marge.


The comical episode may have distracted from the actual clothes, or in this case, the Crocs: actor Elliot Page walked Balenciaga s red carpet in a pair of black, chunky soled rubber sandals embellished with metallic silver rivets and a Balenciaga nameplate on the front.
The new Balenciaga x Crocs shoes appeared on a slew of models (and Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton) after that, completing outfits that included impenetrable, dark sunglasses, oversized jackets and baggy, ripped jeans that have all become street ready signatures of Balenciaga s creative director, Demna Gvasalia.


The new shoes are a far cry from the monstrous green stiletto boots hybrid that the French luxury brand unveiled earlier this year, or the viral bubblegum pink platforms that were part of its first ever Crocs collaboration back in 2017. This season, Gvasalia has made the Crocs a lot easier to walk in, and much more wearable as far as Balenciaga s meme worthy shoes go.

Kill all inferior collabs Fendace (Fendi X Versace, duh) is here

Last night, at a much anticipated secret salon style show mounted within the courtyard of Versace s Via Gesu headquarters in Milan, a collaboration to end all collaborations   a super collaboration, if you will (a cluster collaboration!)   was spawned at the hands of three of the fashion industry s top dahlinks. 


Kim Jones and Silvia Venturini Fendi, of the house of the latter s name, joined forces with Donatella Versace to produce and showcase a (presumably) one off, 50 look strong collection, dubbed with the portmanteau  Fendace". As much a super collaboration as a super swap, 25 Versace looks were designed by Jones and Fendi, while 25 Fendi looks were cooked up by Versace, with each creative powerhouse taking a bow for their work at separate points in the show. 


A high octane, co ed mash up of both brand s distinctive house codes, Fendi s classic  FF  logo (which was first introduced by the late Karl Lagerfeld in 1965 as an acronym for  Fun Fur ) came plastered on to cagoules and suits, while Versace s equally iconic Medusa head and new Greca monogram adorned shirts and shoes. Simple suits, cut with a Fendi shoulder, came furnished with oversized gold safety pins, while Fendi s black and tobacco  FF  caps were emblazoned with the  Versace  insignia   a peak post pandemic turn of unabashed brashness. 
Ultra commercial, totally logo centric and designed as much to carve deep into the fashion world s column inches and Insta pixels as to instantly sell out when it hits the stores next autumn, the collection marked a bold new age for high fashion collaboration.


Indeed, the original point of inter label link ups was to imbue two very disparate brands with a dose of each other s so called secret sauce. Louis Vuitton s partnership with Supreme in 2015, for instance, helped level up the skate brand into true  Fashion with a capital F  territory, while in turn imbuing the former luxury leather goods brand with a much needed dose of hype worthiness; likewise, Gucci s collaboration with North Face, which hit the stores in a limited run earlier this year. 


Versace and Fendi s new collaboration, on the other hand, marks a head on meeting between two of the fashion world s most important megaliths; less a mutual marination in respective secret sauces, more two shots of testosterone to the necks of two prize stallions, and the whole thing   in all its fur to the floor, extra expensive sexiness   was incredibly compelling to watch. 
This isn t the first time that two such powerful fashion houses have joined forces to produce a collaborative collection, of course   back in April, Kering stablemates Gucci and Balenciaga showed their so called SS22  hacking"   but this is the first time that two major fashion players, owned by entirely different uber conglomerates (Fendi sits under the umbrella of LVMH, while Versace was bought two years ago by Capri Holdings), have come together to produce a joint seasonal offering. 


And although it would be easy to look at the partnership as little more than an incredibly slick marketing exercise, the truth is that the appeal of the thing lies in its overarching sense of fun   a mood conjured as much by the brilliantly bright and bold clothes as by the fact that everyone involved seemed to be having a really great time. Jones and Versace are famously close, while the supermodels who walked the runway (Naomi Campbell, Amber Valetta, Kate Moss, to name a few) all reside within the design trio s immediate social circle.


Playful, witty, ultra desirable and impossible to look away from, Fendace   in our humble opinion   is the stuff of which true fashion dreams are made and, what s more, it may well mark the end of the fashion collaboration as we once knew it. Next up, Rolex and Celine (please).

Kiko Kostadinov's Harkman Shoe Is Multifunctional Footwear at Its Finest

By taking the top off the Jehtra boot, Kostadinov s Harkman combines a sneaker with a boot s sensibilities.
Aside from his work with ASICS and CamperLab, the London based, Bulgaria born fashion designer Kiko Kostadinov knows how to make a sneaker. Following on from this season s Jehtra boot comes a new silhouette titled the Harkman shoe, sharing a similar design language to the boot while also serving a more daily wear aesthetic thanks to its low top approach.


Comparisons to the Jehtra start with the tadpole esque rubber plate that graces the lateral and medial front quarter panels, which appear in black across both the  Carbon Black/Sleet  and  Mosstone/Castlerock  colorways on offer. Additionally, the Harkman utilizes the same fastening strap as the Jehtra, wrapping over the shoe s tongue and securing towards the collar with help from velcro.


A combination of mesh, suede, and leather work the shoe s upper, with the paneling also resembling the aforementioned boot. So, we find a thick piece of suede on the toe, a toe box made from mesh, and leather constructing the majority of the shoe s structural integrity near the mid panel and collar, while more mesh and leather hit up the heel section for a comfortable and supportive fit.
Lastly, the same sole unit from the Jehtra graces the Harkman, meaning you get a full length array of teeth that dig into the ground to offer traction. However, unlike the Jehtra, the Harkman is already selling out fast in multiple sizes   head over to The Broken Arm to pick up both colorways while stocks last. Kiko Kostadinov s latest pair retails for $788 USD.

Meghan Markle Wore This Surprising Shoe Style Around New York City and We Found Lookalikes at Nordstrom

Last week, Meghan Markle spent a long weekend in New York City meeting with Mayor Bill de Blasio, reading to school children in Harlem, and speaking at the Global Citizen Live concert. If you thought she d be running around the city in her favorite flats or comfortable sneakers, you d be wrong. Meghan opted for an unexpected option that is reminiscent of her London style.


For all of her public appearances, she wore several different pointed toe heels from designers like Giorgio Armani, Manolo Blahnik, and Aquazzura. Crafted with clean lines and elongated pointed toes, each pair added a sleek and stylish level of sophistication to her ensembles. Their timeless silhouette means business, so it makes sense why Meghan packed a few pairs for her and Prince Harry s cross-country trip  they were in the city to discuss important matters.


Meghan has been a longtime fan of pointed toe pumps. She s worn various versions during royal tours and engagements over the years, including satin pumps with crystal embellishments and cutout stilettos decorated with bows.


Designer heels can cost upwards of $700, making them quite the investment. But if you re looking for an affordable alternative, we found a few budget-friendly lookalikes at Nordstrom. The department store recently launched a Work Revival section to help customers discover office-ready pieces that are both trendy and professional, and it s chock-full of similar styles that ll help you mimic Meghan s look.
First up are these 4-inch pumps for $100. With cushioned footbeds for comfort, they come in a variety of colors and textures, like grey suede and black leather. If stilettos aren t for you, this pair has the same silhouette but with a structured block heel. There s also this pair of Sam Edelman heels with hundreds of five-star ratings for $150, which is still significantly cheaper (and worth the price if you plan to wear them often, especially according to one happy reviewer).


 As someone who wears heels almost daily to work (not to mention to dinners, social outings, etc.), I tend to always need to have pretty classic heels at the ready,  the customer wrote.  For the price, these can t be beat. They are so versatile  pretty enough to wear with dresses or jeans. And every time I order a new pair, I know I will get the same good quality I ve become accustomed to. If you want a good shoe to get you from the boardroom to brunch, you won t be disappointed with these. 


Whether you re working from home or in the office, take a page out of Meghan s style guide and add a pair of pointed toe heels to your rotation. Keep scrolling to shop more lookalikes from Nordstrom.
