Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Shoes – Red heels on Brandi, Gold glitter heels on Adrienne & more

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

We’re right in the midst of an extra juicy reunion for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 2, having finished two parts of the three part special.  The drama on the show was on a rolling boil all season long and, I must say, it was pretty riveting.  After all is said and done, the ladies have plenty of serious issues to hash out on the reunion but I, for one, am here to talk about the shoes.  Yes, there’s never a shortage of hot designer heels on a Housewives reunion, that’s for sure.  That’s why we’re going to check out what they wore and, if your feeling inspired by something you see, but not by an out-of-range price tag, I also found some similar, but much more affordable styles as options for getting the look for less.  Let’s check it out:

On one side of the room at the reunion, we have (from left) Brandi Glanville, Camille Grammar, and Lisa Vanderpump.  They all really brought it in the shoe department, but I have to give props to Brandi for her royal blue strapless dress with bright red pumps – I love the color combination.  I mean, Eddie Cibrian, who?  Looking gorgeous on a hot TV show is the best revenge, I must say.

It’s hard to go wrong with a spicy red heel and it looks like she is wearing this YSL Trib Too in red patent, which can be found at ysl.com for $795.

For a less expensive alternative, try the Audrey Brooke Samantha for $89.95 at DSW.

If you like the combo of red and blue, you’ll appreciate the blue sole on these.

Another option is the Chinese Laundry Whistle in red patent for $69 with free shipping at Endless.  Spend over $100 on eligible styles, including this one, and get 20% off your order in-cart through 2/14/12.

Camille Grammar is going through a situation similar to Brandi’s after ex Kelsey Grammar left her for another woman, but she seems to be doing just fine.  It was said at the reunion that her show got higher ratings than Kelsey’s show (ooh, burn), she has a younger new man in her life, and she looks fab in her red dress and sparkly Christian Louboutin Lady Peep pumps.  The shoes pictured above are the $4,195 crystal version offered at the official Christian Louboutin site.

For something similar, try the Enzo Angiolini Show You for $160 at Bloomingdales.

On to Lisa Vanderpump, who said she was wearing Giuseppe Zanotti when asked about her shoes at the reunion.  She is wearing the Giuseppe Zanotti Crystallized Suede Platform Slingback, available for $1,370 at Neiman Marcus.  These are AH-mazing, but for something less expensive with a similar look, see the Enzos above or this slingback style:

Perugia 12643 for $69.30 with free shipping at Endless.  Spend over $100 on qualifying styles, including this pair, and save 20% at checkout through 2/14/12.

If you love the ultra happy multi-color version of the Zanottis (pictured left) as much as I do, I came across a closer look-alike for that particular style.  The Sole Obsession Berne (pictured right) isn’t dripping in Swarovski and doesn’t have the coveted Giuseppe Zanotti name, but it does have a similar mix of colors with added sparkle via rhinestones and it’s much more affordably priced at $89.95 at DSW.  There is a black/turquoise/purple version available as well.

On to the other side of the room with (from right) Adrienne Maloof, Taylor Armstrong, and Kyle Richards.

Adrienne Maloof is wearing a style from her Adrienne Maloof by Charles Jourdan shoe line.  Adrienne’s shoes were once available only at Issay.com, but they are also now available at Belk, where this particular style is exclusively sold.   It’s the Adrienne Maloof Shaun Pump and you can get it for $235 in gold or black.

 

Of course, you may also be wondering about the Vander Pump, a style Lisa Vanderpump created with shoe designer Ryan Haber and the pink heels her daughter Pandora wore on her wedding day.  They were available for pre-order back when the season premiered, as discussed here, but I don’t see them available for sale online right now.  However, those interested in this shoe can see the Ryan Haber site for more info.

There was a little controversy at the reunion over Adrienne and Lisa’s respective shoes when it was brought up that Lisa had previously referred to Adrienne’s shoes as “Maloof Hoof” and then she went on to say it meant “fat little shoe”.  Now, perhaps she was trying to be funny and there are certainly bigger issues going on with the cast than this, but I can see why Adrienne would be a bit miffed about it.

Now, if it were these shoes, I’d totally get it.

Ok, moving on to Taylor Armstrong, who is wearing lovely nude mary jane platform pumps that definitely look YSL, but I couldn’t find a pic of the exact pair.  I do, however, have some look-alikes:

Patent Mary Jane Platform Pump at Charlotte Russe for $30, but on sale for $25 for a limited time.

Sergio Zelcer Wood Platform Pump in tan with red sole for $121.88 with free shipping at Endless.  Spend over $100 on qualifying styles, including this pair, and save 20% at checkout through 2/14/12.

Promise Goodness tan mary jane with blue sole for $37 at LuLus.

Finally, we have Kyle Richards wearing those signature studs on the Valentino Rockmance, which is available at Neiman Marcus for $895.  I couldn’t find anything that looks all that close to this pair, but these more affordable shoes have some similar features:

Jeffrey Campbell Midler for $112.95 at Loris Shoes.

Betsey Johnson Majestee for $110.99 with free shipping at Endless.  Spend over $100 on eligible styles, including this one, and get 20% off your order in-cart through 2/14/12.

That’s all I have for now, but looking forward to part 3: Andy’s big talk with Kim.

Shoes Adrienne & Lisa wore on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 2 Premiere

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

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.

The Paris Hilton Sarina on sale for $80.75 at Shoes.com with an extra 15% off using the code mentioned above.  Few sizes are left, but you can also get it at Heels.com for $94.99 with free shipping.

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!

Happy Wednesday!

Shoes Seen On TV Part 2: Rose Byrne on Chelsea Lately & Jill Zarin on Real Housewives reunion

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

As I mentioned in Part 1 of my Shoes Seen On TV posts, I have even more hot shoes from the small screen to talk about, so let’s just jump right into Part 2, shall we?  Pictured above, we have Rose Byrne, who went on Chelsea Lately wearing some statement-making stunners that Chelsea Handler complimented right away when Rose walked out.  I most definitely recognized the Kirkwood aesthetic going on:

Rose wore the Nicholas Kirkwood Lace-Up Lace Platform Sandal, which can be found at Bergdorf for a whopping $1,195.  These are ah-mazing, but definitely not a viable option for every budget.  To get a style that’s comparable, but much less expensive, check out this pair:

The Sole Boutique Sydney is certainly Kirkwood-inspired with the similar silhouette and crisscross lace detail in the front, but it differs with its trendy cutout platform and even higher heel: 6 inches (wowza) compared to the 5 1/3 inches on the Kirkwoods.  You can find these at Karmaloop for $50 and coupon code 10OFF takes $10 off for a limited time.

Moving right along to The Real Housewives, where my little eye can always spy some fab footwear — the New York reunion show was no exception.  Now, these reunions are all about stirring up a little controversy but, I must say, some of the “mean girl” behavior went a little far this time (I’m looking at you brunettes! Yeah, ok, Ramona too).  However, the ladies always play it nice when it comes to their reunion fashion and I particularly liked Jill Zarin’s look, which included gorgeous lace bow heels.  They appear to be this pair:

The Valentino Bow Trim Lace Pump is $885 at Nordstrom, but here are some similarly lacey options that come in at much less:

The Chinese Laundry Hotline in black, which is $70 at Bakers.

The Paris Hilton Senorita in lace for $94.99 with free shipping at Heels.com.

Now a final question: Have you seen any shoes on TV lately that made you swoon?  Do share!

Gretchen Rossi shoes on The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

It was reunion time again this week for The Real Housewives of Orange County, which always means getting dolled up and totally breaking out the claws.  That’s exactly what the OC ladies did for the 2-part special, which included finger pointing, name calling, accusations, walking off the stage — basically everything we’ve come to expect from these get togethers.  Even host Andy was particularly on his game, asking all of the hard-hitting questions and totally calling the Housewives out when they tried to pull a non-answer on him.  He’s so tough.  Love Andy.

The Housewives all donned high heels to dish out the theatrics, but it was Gretchen Rossi’s sparkly ankle cuff sandals that probably stood out the most.  She wore them with a gorgeous pink Lipsy one shoulder dress and, I must say, this seems to be one of her favorite pairs of shoes because she also wore them for a Watch What Happens Live appearance, which I posted about after finding the shoes by request.  The Report Signature Vanderbuilt (pictured above from Endless, also listed in a different spelling as the Report Signature Vanderbilt at Bluefly) appears to be silver, but it’s actually covered in ivory beads.  Definitely a super-hot heel, but also completely sold out online.  If you like the black version, I noticed a few pairs for sale on eBay.  You can also check out my previous post on Gretchen’s reunion shoes for some similar alternatives.

Teresa Giudice shoes on Watch What Happens Live: Black heels with sparkling platform

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Teresa and Jacqueline from Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on 5/23/11 to dish on the latest gossip from the new season with Andy Cohen.  Both ladies looked extra glam on the show, but it was Teresa’s black heels with sparkly platform that, in particular, generated a lot of interest amongst viewers.  I posted some info on my Facebook page yesterday after receiving some requests for info on these shoes, but I’m still seeing more people searching for them, so I thought I would add something here as well.  Teresa’s rhinestone pumps are custom made from a company called The Dazzle Diva and you can see them here:

The Dazzle Diva takes a pair of satin Steve Madden slingbacks and completely blings out the platform and heel in “thousands” of genuine Swarovski crystals.  They’re a bit pricey at $399, but that generally comes with the territory if you prefer Swarovski over regular rhinstones (the differences between the two are discussed on the site here).  They also come in champagne, another gorgeous choice.

If you can’t shell out $399 for these, a few less expensive options include the Menbur Narya in black, the Guess Hondola 2 in black with silver glitter platform, the Lauren Jones Zandra in black and the Beverly Feldman Glitz N Glam in black, each from Endless with free shipping.

Gretchen wears Report Signature shoes on Watch What Happens Live

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

I’ve had some questions on Facebook about the sparkly silver ankle cuff heels that Gretchen Rossi of The Real Housewives of Orange County wore while making an appearance with boyfriend Slade on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Sunday night (3/13/11).  Gretchen wore these shoes with a form-fitting purple dress and they definitely add a nice dose of shine to her look, almost like they could be glitter.  But, they are actually these “ivory” bead-covered shoes:

Gretchen wore the Report Signature Vanderbuilt and, despite the brand name of the shoes being mentioned on the show, they were tough to track down because, unfortunately, they are now sold out everywhere.  You can see them listed at Endless or Bluefly, but there are also some sellers offering this pair on eBay as well.  Otherwise, here are some styles with similar details that are worth checking out as alternatives:

Steve Madden Glitsi for $109.95 at Steve Madden.  Coupon code rmn15f takes 15% off and gives free shipping, making them $93.46 (expiration unknown).  If they have your size, get them for $69.99 with free shipping instead at PiperlimeUpdate: Now priced at $76.95.

Dolce Vita Misty for $104.47 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Dolce Vita Vanni for $146.90 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.  Update: Out of stock at Endless, but Last Call by Neiman Marcus has them for $159.

Miss Me Diva-17 in silver for $26.09 with free shipping at Amazon.  Update: Now $16.73 in silver, but only one size left.

Naughty Monkey Shinner for $84.95 at Shoemall.  Get 20% off $20 with coupon code LUCKY20 until 3/17/11.  You can also get this style at ZapposUpdate: Now $67.99 at Shoemall, but also available at DSW for $49.95.

Chinese Laundry Miranda for $67.98 – $119.99 depending on size and color selection at Amazon.

Real Housewives Tamra Barney wears Jessica Simpson brand shoes on Watch What Happens Live

Monday, March 7th, 2011

A new season of The Real Houswives of Orange County made its debut last night and OC housewife Tamra Barney was on hand with fellow castmate Vicki to chat it up on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen after the show.  While most of the Housewives get their kicks in Louboutins and other ultra-pricey designer shoes, this time around Tamra admitted she’s currently a babe on a budget and, as such, she donned a much more affordable pair from Jessica Simpson:

This is the Jessica Simpson Brinna in black and you can get this sexy style for yourself at Endless or Zappos for $89 with free shipping.  Endless also has a taupe version available for the same price.

If you liked Vicki’s spike Christian Louboutin heels, see this previous post for more info.  She wore the same shoes Kim wore during the Atlanta reunion show.
