Last night Marion Cotillard attended a London award ceremony in a gorgeous strapless black dress with a tulle skirt from Dior's glorious spring 2013 collection, naturallement. She accessorised her ballgown with a diamond necklace by Tiffany & Co. but it's Marion's choice of white pointy Dior stilettos that caught our eye. You may tsk at the idea of donning white heels - they've had a lot of bad press in the past - but 2012 has been their year.
Hailed as the new black, a white court shoe has all of the same qualities of a nude version, but have that extra sex factor and a dollop of attitude to amp up your party look. Jessica Alba and Kim Kardashian have both been seen road testing a white stiletto and recently, we've seen an endless amount of A-listers from Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker and Emma Watson wearing the hot new shoe colour, proving that it isn't just for summer months.
Teaming a sharp white court shoe with an all-black tux can create a striking evening look. We recommend wearing them with a girly, longer-hem dress to really make an impact at your Christmas party. To trial this look which is white hot hot hot, check out our top 5 styles to buy below...
