It’s not only Cinderella, Snow White or Sleeping Beauty that inspire designers to create their masterpieces. Today, even villains prove they can also be a source of inspiration! Why do I say that? It’s because Footwear designer Kobi Levi was inspired by them!
Levi, who was born in Israel, took a different path and used fairy tale villains like Ursula, Maleficent and the Evil Queen as inspirations for his new and unique footwear line.
Selena Gomez wowed everyone with her all-black outfit during the taping with David Letterman last Wednesday. Many were taken in by her dress but for me, what captured my interest most was her knee-high boots! They look perfect on Selena’s slim legs!
It turns out the boots were a Brian Atwood creation. It is the Electra Leather Cutout Knee-High Boots. This footwear is designed with a leather upper, back zip for easy wear and removal. The open toe is just right for showing off those perfectly manicured toes. The leather lining and sole of this pair gives it a premium finish and the padded insole makes it comfy to wear.
Flame shoes, glass slippers, fur shoes there are lots of them I know so if you want something rare try looking for skull shoes like the one worn by Jodie Marsh during her ITV appearance the other week. The model and body-builder chose a pair of white shoes with very high platforms and skull heels making everyone take notice.
This pair of shoes can be worn and removed easily because it features a back zip closure. The skull heels look quite fierce and could not be ignored. The pair looks very high it’s a wonder she could walk in them!
Heidi Klum’s new fitness collection for her New Balance line will no doubt be a huge success like any of her endeavors.

Heidi’s already a tall woman but she’s made taller by her black and white Christian Louboutin Pigalle Plato pumps!
The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is no doubt one of the fashion icons worth emulating these days. A lot of people, especially women, look up to her that they even want to look like her. But of course they can’t actually look like her so they just copy her style.
Since it’s winter why not wear the same kind of boots she wear? Kate has a favorite pair too and it’s the Aquatalia by Marvin K. Rhumba Boots! Kate has worn it to several occasions already. It’s stylish and probably comfy so she likes it so much.
Stacy Keibler was one of the fabulously-dressed celebrities at the American Music Awards. But aside from her dress another noticeable thing on her were her shoes! Turns out she was wearing the glittery gold Abel pumps by Jimmy Choo!

Just recently Adidas had to cancel one of Jeremy Scott’s designs for the brand amidst the uproar that the design depicts racism and slavery. The particular design was the JS Roundhouse Mid “Handcuff” sneakers.
The pair wouldn’t have caused such as uproar had it not been for the bright orange ankle cuffs attached to the shoes. And I think the fact that the cuffs were attached by a chain didn’t help matters either. After Adidas put up the shoe in their Facebook page, a storm of negative reactions immediately came.
Talk about fashion coordination! Cheryl Cole definitely did that when she went out to promote her new album in Paris yesterday. She looked really stylish in her black mini dress with leopard-print detailing on the bodice.
