Dubbed "the queen of the kitten heel," L.K. Bennett's signature mini-stilettos are nowhere to be seen in the brand's spring '12 lookbook. Not that we're complaining — we gladly welcome the new platforms and four-inches stilettos that perfectly compliment the collection's classic pieces, all jazzed up with fun and flirty prints.

And, with Pippa in mind, no doubt, the London-based line also provides plenty choices for outside the 9-to-5 world, too — sexy enough for a night out at Guy Pelham's latest boite. You know what they say about all work and no play, don't you?
