Jimmy Choo Taps Cara Delevingne To Model Unisex Shoes And The Sparkliest Boots You’ve Ever Seen 😍😍😍

Tom Craig

Cara Delevingne may be busy promoting her new book and starring in must-see movies, but the It Brit recently returned to her modeling roots for Jimmy Choo's latest campaign.
In a new editorial and short film, Delevingne sports what the brand touts as "unisex" flats and super-sparkly boots from its Cruise 2018 collection. The fur-lined, beaded and glitter-clad styles arrive just in time for the holidays.
The flat, androgynous designs are from Jimmy Choo's "Borrowed from the Boys" collection, which offers a range of men's loafers in women's sizes. The iteration Delevingne wears in the new campaign is the Tedi, which is accented with rabbit fur. There's also the velvet-covered Marti and crystal-encrusted Marlo styles.

Saint Laurent’s Roller-Skate Stilettos Are the Best Things You’ll See All Week

GETTY

They may not be practical, but you can't deny that they're stylish.

Every now and then, a product comes along that you know is wholly unsuitable for your lifestyle, but you happily splurge your entire paycheck on it. Saint Laurent's latest offering is one that could never be convincingly described as a sensible investment piece, but it's soooo pretty.
In the latest drop of new-season accessories — which helped to quickly fill up our autumn wish-list, alongside those sparkly boots — the fashion house has created a hybrid of two items that you would never expect to see together: meet the Saint Laurent roller-skate stilettos.

Now, the designer has come out with his most outrageous offering yet: one-of-a-kind fuschia boots valued at a casual $5,700. They were created in partnership with crystal supplier Preciosa and debuted at its flagship store in Prague, Czech Republic earlier this week.

It's Look Like A Fashion Person 101: Wear a pair of single-soled pumps with a pair of well-loved jeans, and you're set. It almost doesn't matter what you have on top; with a ratty T-shirt or a couture blouse, the combination of jeans and pumps gives your outfit a "on my way to a fashion show" verve.

And, while there are lots of ways to mix and match jeans with heels, there are a few rules to follow, too. The following six people have mastered the balance. Click through to soak in their secrets — and then give the style trick a spin for yourself.

This Surprising Shoe style is Taking Over

KITEEN-MAIN-620x492

Let’s get one thing straight; I’ve never met a shoe I didn’t like. Ok, so it might’ve taken Christopher Kane (and a cluster of crystals) to make me a Croc convert but my point still stands: even the most polarising style can be appreciated, if not for its form then for its function, by the most discerning shoe aficionado.

Saying that, I understand some shoes still divide opinion. Dr Martens are by no means for everyone. Neither are corset-laced, knee-high sandals. However, there’s no shoe that’s made headlines of late quite like the kitten heel.

Technology Is Making High Heels More Wearable Than Ever Before

landscape-1468938363-high-heel-mules
If there's ever a stagnant industry in need of some disrupting, look to a hero from the tech world. "It's this $40-billion industry, yet for 80 to 100 years there's been almost no innovation. That's crazy." The disruptee at hand is Dolly Singh, the stiletto-loving force behind Thesis Couture, a company she founded after working with Oculus VR and SpaceX. As an avowed high heel fan, she felt the pain that accompanies a career spent walking around concrete-floored Silicon Valley campuses. And as someone who'd held a front-row ticket to watching entire categories get a major shaking, she sensed a category ripe for disrupting. "When you work at a rocket company, you have to understand fundamental physics well enough to be conversant....
