>A big chunk of my job revolves around award season and everything that leads up to the red carpet arrivals. From spotting the perfect gown on the runway to squeezing in last-minute appointments with my celebrity clients, it all comes down to that last fitting. Dresses and jewels aside, today I’m sharing the shoe trend that will be huge this red carpet season. When it comes to heels, it’s all about a novelty embellished option. Whether it’s an embellished heel or subtle sparkly detail, everyone will be wearing flashy heels. The shoe matters more than ever because dress hemlines are short, slits are higher, and it’s really about showing the heel. Get ready to see lots of glitz this year!
