Tuesday Shoesday – Ruby slippers

| 1 Comment

In the spotlight this Tuesday Shoesday are lipstick-pillar-box-dorothy-scarlet-red shoes of all shapes and finishes. Rihanna is a massive fan of all things red (such as her recent hair colour!) and she is regularly spotted sporting bright red heels. Just check out her homage to the famous Dorothy ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz below!

         

  

Other die-hard fans of bright cherry red shoes are Kelly Osbourne (photographed here in a pair of glittery court shoes) and Lily Allen in chunky red suede peeptoes.

Even Jennifer Garner’s daughter Violet Affleck is wearing her sparkly ruby pumps as she skips down her yellow brick road! Here’s the original ruby slippers from the film and some similar kiddies shoes from intrigueboutique.com.

I think that red shoes, especially when teamed with a casual outfit, make a real style statement and are definitely not for shy-retiring-wallflower types. Personally, I really love all things red and would wear any of these shoes anyday! And when I attended a wedding last weekend, guess what shoes I wore? …Patent red wedges! To be honest, they were quite painful but fun!

 

Lookey-likey versions of Rihanna’s patent shoes from Next and her satin heels from New Look. Plus Kelly Osbourne’s sparkly dorothy shoes from ASOS and Lily’s Suede courts from Marks & Spencer.
