The People’s Choice awards took place this week, signalling that awards season has officially started! While many will be watching closely to see who wins what, fashion lovers will simply be watching for the year’s best red carpet eye candy. For many it’s the dress that takes center stage, but we at HHD have a particular yen for shoes – especially the high-heeled variety! Here’s our version of a best-dressed list: the top 10 best heeled for the 2011 People’s Choice Awards.

AnnaLynne McCord‘s Christian Louboutin slingbacks are the perfect pair for her bright blue dress.

Vanessa Williams also goes with the mighty Louboutin, but chooses the very glitzy “Marlena Flame” which are available at Bergdorf Goodman.

Lots of stars chose nude pumps for the evening, but Taylor Swift‘s choice stood out for their criss-crossed sandal design.

These peep toe pumps Selena Gomez wore have a surprise blinged-out heel. Get a closer look at these Giuseppe Zanotti heels at Yoox.com

Lyndsy Fonseca chose basic black pumps, but they have an adorable twist: a leather bow in the back that perfectly compliments the classic silhouette of her dress.

These sandals, worn by Lisa Edelstein, are the kind of versatile, but glamourous sandals that every woman should have. And they match her dress perfectly!

Laura Spencer is wearing one of YSL’s very popular “Iconic” heel. The gold color is the perfect bit of shine to go with her berry-colored dress.

The pink satin of these high heels is just the right amount of softness to lighten up Emma Roberts‘ black dress look. And they match her earrings!

Cat Deeley is yet another celeb wearing Louboutins on the red(blue) carpet. But she choice a spiked pair for her lady-like dress, adding a little edgy surprise on her feet.

If not for the shoes, Ashley Bell‘s look would have been a bit dull. She could have use some sparkle around her neck, but the gorgeous sparkle on her feet makes up for it.
