Stuart Weitzman teamed up with a few actresses for his charitable Young Hollywood Cares collection the proceeds of which go to go Dr. Marsha Moses who conducts research in ovarian cancer, at Folkman Institute in Boston. The last year’s collection included such stars as Michelle Trachtenberg, Scarlett Johansson, Olivia Palermo, and Hayden Panettiere. This year model and actress Brooklyn Decker, Twilight star Nikki Reed, singer and actress Julianne Hough, actress AnnaSophia Robb, and a teen actress Chloë Grace Moretz worked with the designer to create a pair of kicks for the collection.
Stuart Weitzman Young Hollywood Collection
The collection includes interesting takes on classic black shoes, ankle booties and Oxfords. All the shoes are named after their celebrity co-designers. The metallic cap-toe boots by The Brooklyn were co-designed with model/actress Brooklyn Decker. Made of Nappa leather the boots are finished with two straps and a gold metallic cap-toe detail. $495
The Julianne are the lacquered ankle booties co-designed with Julianne Hough. These Oxford style patent leather boots feature a high heel and a hidden platform. $425
The AnnaSophia are a black pony hair stilettos finished with burgundy satin piping co-designed with AnnaSophia Robb who sported her design during Fashion Week. The shoe is beautiful and versatile thanks to it’s classic design with a twist. $425
The Nikki co-designed with Nikki Reed are the black goose-bump calfskin pumps with burgundy platform and a very trendy burundy ankle strap. They also feature side cutouts. $425
Chloe Grace Moretz co-designed The Chloe Grace Oxford menswear inspired shoes in tan vachetta and navy lizette calfskin. The menswear inspired shoes are one of the Spring 2013 trends. $375
I really liked The AnnaSophia pumps. They are classic but that burgundy satin piping gives it a little new twist. It’s a great evening shoe while The Brooklyn boots are great for casual wear. The metal cap-toe trend is still ongoing it seems.
The shoes are available at Stuart Weitzman’s website as well as in stores.
