Siobhan Magnus shoes from American Idol Elvis week
Siobhan Magnus is definitely one of the most unique and talented contestants on American Idol this year and, although Crystal is my current fave, I think Siobhan is fun to watch. Even if her performances don’t always hit the mark for me, she certainly knows how to stand out. In addition to her singing (and infamous “screaming”), she also distinguishes herself from the crowd through fashion. Siobhan’s style on the show is quirky and eclectic – she definitely has an 80’s vibe going on and it’s mixed up with a little urban edge (she wore Missy Elliot boots on a previous show) and a bit of geek-chic with her Molly Ringwald-esque glasses and hair. This past week, during the Elvis show, I definitely took notice of her super-strappy white wedge shoes (pictured above) and I had set out to find them. My first thought was Jeffrey Campbell, but I couldn’t locate the exact pair. However, I did find one that is very similar:
It’s called the Jeffrey Campbell Polish and it’s on sale for $119.95 (originally $169.95) at Solestruck. I’m not sure if this shoe was ever made in white and I noticed Siobhan’s pair had rhinestones (or something similarly shiny) across a few of the straps, so it could be a totally different shoe. Then again, it could be a version of the Polish that will be available for sale in the future. After all, you never know what kind of pre-sale hookups the American Idol stylists have, but we’ll have to wait and see.

On a related note, you can read more about the American Idol women’s stylist, Soyon An – and how she works with a $400 per contestant per week budget – over at StyleList. Soyon often finds items from affordable stores like Aldo, Bebe and Forever 21 for the outfits you see on the show.
Update: I found out in the American Idol style section that the pair Siobhan wore on the show was originally black, but it was customized to white with a lightning bolt to complete her look, so it appears the shoe may have been the Polish after all!
