ReneIf anyone's going to steal Manolo Blahnik crown, it'll be Rene Caovilla. Blahnik may think that Georgina Goodman is the future of shoe fashion, but for the purists, Caovilla knows classic cobbling. The current collection of pointed-toe slingbacks in exotic fabrics with delicate embellishment bear more than a striking resemblance to Blahnik's styles, and come with the same hefty price tag. These silver, gold and pearl pumps are $870.
