Michelle Yeoh has been doing quite a bit of red carpet walking, due to the premiere of her movie Crazy Rich Asians this past year.

Due to the fact that they must look presentable and fashionable at all times. No one knows footwear like the royals.

The alluring abbreviated top line, and open backing will allow you to slip from casual to dressy while still remaining comfortable.
Though she chose a low stiletto as opposed to a block heel, Nicole Kidman’s breathtaking style at the amazing age of 51 cannot go unnoticed. Since Nicole can 100% afford an expensive pair of comfortable yet stylish stilettos that she can wear all night, we decided to transform her heels to fit the trend that we know and love. If you loved her little, black pumps with pointed toe, and delicate bow at the ankle, you love these baby blue Steve Madden Pearl Pumps. You get the same pointed toe and beautiful bow, but with a comfortable block heel, so you can stay stylish, and possibly trendier than the movie star herself.

The multicolored crystals adorning the heel, atop a suede lining will have you glittering down the street, leaving a trail of envious onlookers like Sanya.
