Manushi Chhillar has discovered Priyanka Chopra’s favourite designer boots
And they're versatile AF
From being a studious, bespectacled girl to winning the Miss World 2017 title, Manushi Chhillar’s come a long way. What’s more, her latest looks are proving that the 21-year-old is inching closer to being a fashion insider (did you see the styling trick she used to appear taller and leaner?). Her recent ensemble especially holds true — seen at the airport while making her way back from Sri Lanka, Manushi styled her outfit with a pair of Stuart Weitzman’s Juniper 70 bootie. She teamed her pair with navy blue high waist trousers from Bhane and a classic white shirt. A bright yellow bag from Lulu and Sky rounded off her look.
The boots have a stamp of approval from another former Miss World — Priyanka Chopra. The Juniper 70 bootie are a favourite with the global style icon.
Priyanka proved the boots’ versatility by effortlessly styling them with a striped maxi dress as well as with a pair of denims and a matching top and jacket combo.
The Quantico actor wore them to the airport as well as on the red carpet.
Fancy being a style connoisseur? Then invest in this pair — the Stuart Weitzman Juniper 70 bootie will only set you back by Rs 42,000.
Famous designer shoes that live in your favourite celebrities’ wardrobes:
Whether it comes as a flat, a stiletto or a wedge, the intertwining straps of the Tribute sandal shoe from Saint Laurent are a brand signature, much loved by both Kareena and Karisma Kapoor. The iconic sandal debuted in 2004 under then-creative director Stefano Pilati. While many companies have tried to copy or reinterpret this design, the interlocked strap will always belong to YSL's Tribute Sandal.
These are to Valentino what the Tribute is to YSL. If you see the rockstud caged ankle strap, or those little pyramid-shaped studs on elegantly crafted leather footwear, it is safe to assume the shoe belongs to Valentino. If not their pointed toe pump, the rockstud range also features open toe gladiator heels and flats.
They could almost be mistaken for any other boot, if it was not for the subtle separation Maison Margiela puts between the toes. It's toe cleavage with full toe coverage... if only T-shirts could nail this. Maison Margiela makes the boots over-sized, knee length, in metallics, with a block heel and with a drawstring, but once you see the toe separation, there's no mistaking that Margiela is the genius house they originate from.
It doesn't matter whether you're looking at a woman's stiletto or a man's velvet smoking slipper — if it has a red sole, you know where it came from. "The shiny red colour of the soles has no function other than to identify to the public that they are mine. I selected the colour because it is engaging, flirtatious, memorable, and the colour of passion," Louboutin has said of his signature red soles.
The designer who claims to have invented the stiletto is better known for the massive decorative buckle that sits on the toe of his shoes. The key to spotting a pair of Roger Vivier pumps is the shape of the signature buckle — a horizontally-placed rectangular buckle over of a slightly tapered square toe. And while the way the buckle is presented may vary in terms of material or adornment, the shape is never altered.
You may recognise the pumps from Sex And The City 2, but did you know they were Manolo Blahnik's Hangisi before Carrie Bradshaw gushed about them? Sure, they may look an awful lot like Roger Vivier's buckle but the Monolo Blahnik buckle is always bejewelled, and has a different shape. The satin shoe with an almond-shaped toe, the Hangisi is finished off with the designer's globally-recognisable Swarovski crystal embellished buckle detailing.
