Fit for a Duchess? Jimmy Choo Giovanna wedges
After we spotted Kate Middleton wearing a pair of rather fabulous Jimmy Choos last week, the name has been on everyone's lips once again - and talking of which, these fabulously lipstick-red shoes are truly a sight for sore eyes. They're a wedge style, which is an unusual choice for the generally classic-leaning Choo, but 2012 is the year of the wedge, after all...
The shape of these shoes is certainly an interesting variation on what we're used to at JC, and we love the way the wedge is incorporated into a traditional Mary Jane style, with that wonderful built-up look, held in place by three slender straps. There is also a peep toe section at the front, making them ideal summer party footwear. They're £450 at Net-a-Porter if you'd like to invest in a pair of your own.
These shoes could be dressed up or down, worn with a pair of half-mast blue denim jeans or a stiff and formal frock in the evening. The wedge heel lends them a friendliness and easy-wearing quality that we think will make them a really worthwhile buy.
