With lashings of rock and roll attitude, the YSL Janis boots are everything we want in hot-to-trot footwear. There’s the uber cool python finish which adds a totally textural, 1970s vibe. The deep, inky goes-with-everything black. The so cool it hurts dramatic arch. The skyscraper 5 inch heel and 1 inch platform. Not to mention the silver buckle and bondage-inspired strap. At £1360 they do come under the heading of an investment piece but, with YSL’s design heritage they’re an instant classic that you’ll wear again and again. £1,360 from Net-a-Porter.com.
A certain TV star wore these bubblegum pink pumps to the launch of a new collection for Devon clothing in Los Angeles this month. Not only did this someone where the daring color, she boldly paired the shoes with black – making them standout a mile away. So who was it that wore this pair of “Lobster Palais” pumps by YSL?
That’s Nicollette Sheridan – British actress best known for her roles on Knots Landing and Desperate Housewives. She must have had the inside scoop (as many celebs do), because these shoes are hard to find in that color. They are available in red for $775 here.
As a part of pop sensation group Sugababes, singer Heidi Range is familiar with the glamorous lifestyle. But the star says that glamor can come in a few easy steps. “My one-minute trick to instant glamour is a pair of heels, earrings and a blast of dry shampoo,” she said.
We tend to agree with Heidi – especially when it comes to the high heels! Even a casual top and jeans can be transformed into an amazing outfit with the right shoes to punctuate the look. See an example below, featuring Tribtoo suede pumps by YSL.
Yves Saint Laurent is a well-respected brand today, but in the ’70s it was the absolute tippy top of the fashion food chain. So maybe the label is trying to recapture it’s former glory with the “Woodstock” platform high heel. These aren’t just retro, they are practically vintage replicas! They are riding the wave of platform popularity with a whopping 2¾” (70mm) platform. These Italian made darlings are available at Saks.
