Shoes Adrienne & Lisa wore on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 2 Premiere
Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiered this week and I know a lot of people, including myself, were really looking forward to it after the popularity of the first season. The opening episode, which aired Monday night, was definitely hard to watch given the recent tragedy of cast member Taylor Armstrong’s husband, Russell, taking his life after the season filmed. That whole situation is incredibly sad and Bravo is now re-editing the show, but I’m sure it’ll still be pretty surreal for viewers to watch Taylor knowing what the future holds. Plus, we have other serious situations, like the bitter ongoing fued between sisters Kim and Kyle, Camille getting some of her personal belongings unceremoniously shipped to her from estranged ex-husband Kelsey Grammer, and the addition of the Brandi Glanville, the scorned ex of actor Eddie Cibrian, in future episodes (judging from the previews, her arrival isn’t going to be sugar and spice and everything nice). All in all, it’s hard to say where this season will to take us, but I have to say it’s looking a little bit dark so far. However, there is something that may have lightened the mood, even if just a bit: The pretty shoes they featured worn by Adrienne Maloof and Lisa Vanderpump. I know there are some people looking for these shoes, so here’s a rundown of some of the styles seen on the premiere, plus some options for getting a similar look for less:
We’ll start out with Lisa Vanderpump’s pink heels, which were shown near the beginning of the episode. To be honest, I can’t see the shoes well enough to be absolutely certain on what they are, but I did find out that Lisa has shoe design aspirations and it involves something pink: Her Vander “Pump” (yes, she does have a perfect last name for this) is a style she created with designer Ryan Haber:
This glam pair comes in pink or black and it’s made in suede with Swarovski crystal detail. For those of you that can handle the $902.10 price tag, it’s on preorder at ryanhabercollection.com (Update: No longer available on pre-order). If that’s totally out of your price range, but you’d still like to find a pretty pink pump with decorative detail, here are some alternatives:
The Steve Madden Party-R for $129 with free shipping at Shoes.com. Coupon code 15OFF takes 15% off (limited time) and drops the total to $109.65.
Lisa also wore these black pumps with large rhinestones on the top of the shoe and around the ankle strap. We do see a red sole, indicating that these are likely Louboutins (plus, Lisa is known to be a huge fan of the brand), but I haven’t seen this particular style before — perhaps they were never available online or they might be custom made (or maybe I just totally missed them!). If you like the look of the oversized rhinstones around the ankle, you might like this more affordable style:
The Nina Garima in black, ivory or silver for $114.95 at Shoebuy.com. Use coupon code SHOEBUY to get 10% off (limited time) or get a better price in gold or silver at Endless, where they are on sale for $74.74 with free shipping.
On to Adrienne Maloof, who made a big splash last season when she wore sparkly Gianmarco Lorenzi heels. For the dinner party she hosted on the premiere, this lucky lady got to reach into her highly enviable shoe closet for another amazing pair:
This, of course, is the $1,195 Christian Louboutin Lady Clou Spike (seen at Nordstrom), which now appears to be completely unavailable online. But, I think this next pair is a super-hot — and totally available — option for less:
The Sam Edelman Lorna with spiked bow for $136 at Karmaloop. Coupon code 15FALL takes 15% off $75 (exp. 9/30). In addition to the Aged Metal color pictured, it also comes in nude and leopard.
That’s all for the shoes I spied in the first episode, but I also wanted to note that Adrienne Maloof just launched her shoe line and the collection is currently available for preorder. You can find Adrienne Maloof by Charles Jourdan shoes at Isaay.com and they are priced from $195 for flats to $295 for crystal-adorned heels. I definitely noticed some Giuseppe Zanotti inspiration going on; for instance, the Ivy Sandal is very much like the Giuseppe Zanotti E10079. All of the options are really very pretty, but my personal favorite is the Veronica Platform (pictured above) in turquoise – love that color!
