Katy Perry with pumps from her namesake collectoin
We're used to seeing celebrities strut down red carpets in the most elegant and glamorous outfits, and although we covet their designer wear, much of it comes with a hefty price tag that might make us think twice. But that's not always the case - some stars step out in pieces that are seriously within our budgets!
Read on to see a selection of celebrity-endorsed affordable footwear, from pumps with a very unusual design to perfect 'nudist' sandals to match your favorite party dresses.
Katy Perry’s blue pumps
Katy Perry’s bold and visual outfits never fail to surprise, but what really caught our attention this time are the pointed-toe pumps with a heel outlined in a metal silhouette of a face. These artistic kicks are called The Celina and are part of her footwear collection. Amazon ($111.20).
Emma Roberts is a bigtime shoe fan and a great style inspiration. Check out her yellow suede mules with a block heel and a retro vibe. The Churen model belongs to Nine West’s 40th anniversary collection and is the perfect pop of color for spring and summer. Nine West ($109).
Bella Hadid with Mango boots
Bella Hadid’s snakeskin boots
Bella Hadid confirms what street style has been hinting at for a long time: snakeskin boots will be everywhere in 2019. The boots she chose are from one of the most affordable retailers par excellence. If they are endorsed by Bella… what are we waiting for? Mango ($79.99).
Jennifer López in Stuart Weitzman heels
Jennifer Lopez’s 'nudist' sandals
If you’re looking for the perfect sandals to match your monochrome outfit, or to break the monotony of your wardrobe, pay attention to the timeless and minimalist design by Stuart Weitzman that Jennifer Lopez wore for her guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! - completely satin with an ankle strap. Revolve ($211).
Vanessa Hudgens with over-the-knee Ugg boots
Vanessa Hudgens’ over-the-knee boots
Vanessa Hudgens' over-the-knee boots are all that you need to complement an outfit with a skirt, pants, shorts or even a dress. Why? Not only are they timeless, but they’re comfortable and so versatile that you can take your outfit from day tonight with confidence and ease. Ugg ($132.99).
Queen Letizia with Steve Madden pumps
Queen Letizia’s vinyl 'pumps'
There isn’t the slightest doubt that vinyl is fashionable. Not only on handbags or jackets, but also on footwear. The best thing about the Steve Madden Plaza design that Queen Letizia is wearing is that they go with almost everything. They have a suede effect with stiletto heels. Yoox ($121).
During the premiere of A Wrinkle in Time, Janelle Monae rocked a vibrant pink ensemble with a bold pair of boots that have taken this fashion season by storm and will continue to reign: the white ankle boots, in the Ellina model. Asos ($83).
Lupita Nyong´o with Aldo sandals
Lupita Nyong’o’s platform sandals
Red carpets are always adorned with lots of sparkles, long lines and a whole lot of glamor. But there is also room for nice complementary pieces that are relatively inexpensive, like the platform Leventer stiletto sandals that Lupita Nyong'o wore to this year's Golden Globes. Aldo ($44.98).
Jessica Alba in Via Spiga sandals
Jessica Alba’s square-toed sandals
Jessica Alba struts in the sandals that you’ll want to wear with everything from jeans to skirts to dresses. They are the Faxon model by Via Spiga in a color that pairs perfectly with all color combinations, made in patent leather with a hook and loop strap closure. They also have a heel that is as comfortable as it is elegant. DSW ($84.98).
