Blake Lively's Louboutins Gave Her Hairy Toes!

10 November 2011 by

So there we were looking through the latest photographs of Blake Lively from the set of Gossip Girl this morning (Grazia Daily always likes to stay abreast of the most important global news that's broken overnight), and our train of thought went something like this...

Ah, gorgeous Blake. Such a good look; brown leather jeans, great knit... ooh, bouffant ponytail; love. Nice take on the Sixties hair trends; must try...

...more Louboutins...Aww, cute dog! What kind of dog is that? It looks like a teddy bear! So sweeeet! Wonder if... WHAT THE...!?

What the hell are those shoes?

For the poor-sighted, and those who like things spelled out, the shoes in question, (which, from the distinctive red sole, are obvs from Blake's favourite shoe label Christian Louboutin) appear to be honey-coloured and furry with animal paw toes at the front with doggy-type scritchy black toenails (claws?) and everything. And just in case there were any doubt about the glamour factor, the five inch high skinny platform heels are studded with crystals. Hmm.

A little investigation reveals that the "Lion Paw" shoe, from Louboutin's current Autumn Winter 2011 collection, isn't even making its A-list debut on the Gossip Girl set. Louboutin's other No.1 fan, Sarah Jessica Parker, wore them on the red carpet at the Moscow premiere of I Don't Know How She Does It (above), teamed, improbably, with a red strapless gown and matching floor length cape, thereby turning herself into a one-woman reenactment of Little Red Riding Hood.

Anyway, these footsie beauties appear to be sold out everywhere; although perhaps you can persuade the luxury label to make you a pair to order.

Seems animal fashions are taking over right now - already the high street stores are full of furry-eared hats of various descriptions, so what with those, and the Paw shoes, and a very on-trend furry gilet, you could be rocking a head-to-toe look that could pull focus from even Blake's adorbs little teddy-bear-pup.

What do you think of Blake / Serena van der Woodsen's styling? And would you wear Christian Louboutin's Lion Paw shoes? Let us know below...
