While we all still crave Christian Louboutin’s iconic red sole, Casadei’s sleek Blade pumps, Jimmy Choo’s strappy sandals and Manolo Blahnik’s ornate designs, many celebs are now looking to Aldo for dynamic footwear. The international brand has partnered with fashion houses like Preen and Christian Cota for its truly covetable Aldo Rise line and several stars are even wearing the affordable options on the red carpet. Both Holland Roden as well as Abbie Cornish just sported Aldo at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego and Kate Bosworth was spotted wearing her white Musilova pumps in Los Angeles earlier this month. Katy Perry, Anne Hathaway and Julianne Hough are also fans of the brand.
This trend has been building for the past few years. Last summer, Chelsea Kane capped off her French Connection blouse and colorful patchwork Alice + Olivia shorts with a pair of Aldo electric blue pumps at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards. At this year’s annual Kids’ Choice Awards, Victoria Justice combined her vivid Pia Pauro printed dress with equally bold Alvara sandals. Rebel Wilson stood out the following month at the Los Angeles Pain & Gain premiere in a red Theia embellished creation accented by silver Aldo sandals.
We love the sheer range of footwear options available though Aldo and its impressive designer collaborations. Of course, the reasonable prices don’t hurt either.
