OMG, shoez. As if you need another reason to build up your footwear collection, I'm here to introduce you to the serious fierceness that is printed pumps. Kind of like the anti-nude pump that became everyone's shoe staple over the year, these heels are all about standing out, not elongating your legs or coordinating with your outfit. We're talkin' abstract prints, candy-cane stripes, funky leopard, and even florals -- these pumps are not about blending in! While pretty much anyone can rock the more expected (yet still fun!) snake print pumps by Kate Spade, it takes a little more confidence (and a bigger budget!) to rock something bright and geometric like these ridiculously stylish Alexander McQueens. Check out the slideshow for the 10 hottest (and wackiest!) printed pumps for the season!
For the launch of the Victoria's Secret Beauty Love Rocks fragrance collection, Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen was her usual rocker-chic self. While Taylor usually wears teeny dresses that come up to there, at this event she went in the opposite direction, sporting a long, slip-like ivory dress. Never one to go the ethereal route, Taylor toughened up the look with a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti motorcycle boots, a black cuff reminiscent of Madonna circa 1980, her signature rosary beaded necklace, the Victoria's Secret Love Rocks lip gloss ring, and of course, tons and tons of black eye liner. I was drawn to this look because it's a lot more accessible and wearable than some of her other ensembles. Edgy extras, like the boots and jewelry pieces she chose are definite must-haves and I am really feeling that long, gauzy dress.
