IF CINDERELLA HAD HER GLASS SLIPPERS, Cinderthriller had its glass-encrusted Lipstick Heels. A treat from my fairy-god-Guardianis for wearing to the finale, the Lipstick Heel is Alberto Guardiani's first IT shoe before the Flutterby. Originally a solid pump with gold-cased lipstick heels, the shoe had been extended into a line of covetable versions since its launch. These ones, from the brand's Spring/Summer 2012 collection, come in a toe-capped black mesh upper with crystal-studded heels.
So how does a shoe which requires personality show off its own personality? By being able to change its colors as often as you do. Simply screw off the lipstick heel, choose a new lipstick shade and screw on tightly, keeping the base parallel with the sole. Do one, do both, up to you.
It's just like changing a light bulb but megawatts more glam.
There's red and a plummy pink as pictured, black, blue and gold. Which color would you wear out the most?
