If landing a “Vogue” cover isn’t enough to convince you of Kim Kardashian’s power in the fashion world, maybe a pair of designer shoes named after her will.
In December, luxury shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti will release the “Mrs. West” shoe, a peep-toe bootie, custom-made in 2012 for the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star. The sexy shoe, topped with a killer silver metal piece in the middle, is part of Giuseppe’s “Rock ‘n’ Roll” shoe collection that will celebrate the designer’s 20th anniversary. The collection, which pulls styles from his archives going back to 2002, also features a black strappy “MJ” shoe, named after the late icon Michael Jackson.
“Mrs. West” is a friend of the designer, thanks in part to her husband who has built a relationship with him in the past. Naturally, the reality star has been spotted in several Giuseppes, including the pair that the designer created with her hubby Kanye West for his first (and only) fashion line. She first rocked Kanye’s creation front row at his Paris show and also notably wore an ivory pair while she was pregnant. The designer praised Kanye in Elle.com as a “brilliant poet and artist,” calling him “a constant source of inspiration for me.” Not to mention, the Zanotti, himself, was a guest at her wedding to Kanye this year.
Fashionista’s hoping to step into Kim’s new shoes will have to wait until December when the collection hits shelves. Aside from Kim and Kanye, many of our fave celebs, from Rihanna and Nicki Minaj to Gwen Stefani, are obsessed with their Giuseppe shoe collection. So, Kim might not be the only one strutting in her “Mrs. Wests” next year.
Would you rock them, beauties?
