Shoes Seen On TV Part 1: Giuliana Rancic & Denise Richards get sparkly
As a shoe lover, I’m always checking out the shoes people wear on TV while I’m catching up with some of my fave shows. Of course, most people making an appearance on the small screen are wearing shoes of some kind, but there are definitely those that stand out way more than others. Here are a few designer styles that grabbed my attention in a big way while surfing the tube recently, plus I’ve also tracked down some alternatives that provide a similar look for less:
E!’s Giuliana Rancic stopped by Chelsea Lately with her hubbie Bill (pictured at very top) in some very hot and super-blingy shoes, just to prove that our obsession with sparkle isn’t going to fade anytime soon. She wore the Giuseppe Zanotti E10089 to chat it up with Chelsea and, I must say, being up on that stage seriously lit up the crystals all over this pair. I couldn’t find these for sale online in black, like she’s wearing, but I did find the above picture of them at Zappos. The blush pair on the right is available in a few sizes at Endless for $851.48 (regularly $1,495) and they also have a limited-time promotion that takes 25% off select sandals at checkout. If my calculations are correct, that would drop them to about $638.61 with free shipping, which is a pretty sweet price for this luxe style, but still quite a chunk of change. Here are some less expensive options:
If you like the blush color, this is an obvious choice for a lookalike version, although the studs clearly aren’t as shiny and bright. You can find the Wild Pair Glisten in light tan for $185 at Bakers.
The Jeffrey Campbell Rally is another option with similar qualities. Reflection has them for sale in black for $149.99 with free shipping.
Update: The Steve Madden Stonned is also a good choice for getting this look for less. It comes in black, blush or blue for $149.95.
Speaking of sparkle, Denise Richards showed off her glow in glitter while appearing on Watch What Happens Live. These appear to be Christian Louboutin Lady heels, although it may be the crystal-covered version rather than glitter. They’re totally Andy Cohen-approved (he complimented them on the show) and definitely drool-worthy (seriously, I’m drooling). They’re $895 in glitter, but I did find some less expensive options that still offer plenty of flash:
I’m loving the Badgley Mischka Humbie II, which looks extra sparkly to me. They’re $200 with free shipping at Endless.
There’s also the Lauren Jones Vicki silver glitter pump, which is $98.95 with free shipping at Endless.
