Last night many integral players and fabulous femmes of the stylish set crowded the brand new AZZA boutique in The Shops at North Bridge on Michigan Avenue. Celebrating its opening, there were hors d'oeuvres, Magnolia Cupcakes, Vosges truffles and ample Champagne. But who was looking at the shoes when there were so many beautiful faces in the crowd? We were. And now we want to know whose shoes did it better?
We spotted Mel Muoio, stylist and marketing manager at Element Collective, Ms Rennaissance, blogger and pastry chef, and Erica Strama, reining champion of 'Whose Shoes Did it Better' and senior marketing manager for The Shops at North Bridge. They were all wearing shoes.
We're not going to tell you whose shoes belong to who, but we'll tell you what the the feet were wearing - then we vote. Results come tomorrow.
Someone was wearing iridescent nude pumps from Prada with a heel so high she was practically six feet tall.
And someone else was wearing felt-covered Givenchy pumps in black with a gold tone pointed toe.
And finally, someone else was wearing silver woven leather Alejandro Ingelmo wedge sandals.
Now vote for the men: JP Anderson, Mario Tricoci or D.C. Crenshaw.
