Yes, at first glance, it was those lovely ladies of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show that took center stage at the televised event. But, now that we've seen what the gals have to offer, it's clear: The undergarments were breathtaking, but it was the shoes — oh the shoes! — that clearly stole the night.
But wait, you exclaim, are you telling me I have to wait until December 4 to see exactly what kind of footwear graced the angels' feet? Au contraire, mon frère, because the custom Nicholas Kirkwood shoes have been sent out for a truly killer sneak peek. And, like everything the ultra-talented Brit touches, they are imaginative, fresh, and certainly incredible.
From holiday-ready glitter booties to slip-ons with leg-wrapping vine details, Kirkwood presents a world just as imaginative as the one VS created for its show. Embroidered knee-high boots bring drama, while a leopard-print, ankle-high platform might be something an editor would fawn over. (Case in point: us, right now.) Mega-heels are Kirkwood's trademark — and they certainly are a-plenty here — and this iteration is no different. Too bad these are custom; those brocade booties would certainly belong on our best of the year list!
