While Second City Style editor-in-chief Lauren Dimet Waters may have just sung the praises of mid-heel pumps, it looks like celebrities are turning to the round-toe heel to make their classy shoe statement.
In an array of colors (and embellishments), A-listers are adding a pair of pretty round-toe platforms to give their ensembles some extra oomph.
The Brian Atwood pump, like this nude suede one worn by Emma Stone, is very popular among celebs like Kerry Washington and Rachel Bilson, who counts Atwood as her close friend.
Carey Mulligan steps ups her elegant Old Hollywood glam with debonair, classy, and chic beaded top and over-the-knee A-line skirt. But what she's always known for is adding something fresh and modern to her vintage-inspired looks and she does it here with $720 YSL Palais Pumps in a bright blue.
Ever the fashionista, Rhianna goes for a sculpted tulip skirt, a feather bow, and heather-colored round toe pumps to match her stone gray bustier and accentuate her red locks.
The queen of debonair and mismatched, Keira Knightley plays up the risky trend well, blending an embroidered tan blouse with blue and cream print skirt and interesting brown round toe pumps that just seem to go well with the whole ensemble, even though they look nothing like the rest of the outfit.
Ashley Tisdale always goes for urban but I like how she plays off the tough black and white with interestingly patterned round toes that give her a funky edge.
Catherine Zeta-Jones opts for a different kind of round-toe pumps–one that's just a wee-bit pointed as she wears sky-high scarlet red heels with her black strapless dress.
Kim Kardashian constantly throws on a winning body con formula that makes her look spot-on every time even though she may have just rolled out of bed. Adding round toe pumps to every look adds that extra little kick (no pun intended) especially when they're in a cool nude color.
One Tree Hill's Sophia Bush gracefully waltzes in a BCBG Max Azria dress that are enhanced, but not overtaken by her beautiful nude pumps as she films a segment for Extra at The Grove in Los Angeles.
Kourtney Kardashian is looking even more fashionable than fashionista sister Kim! And why not? After all, the New York opening of the Dash boutique in Soho is her baby! The A-line skirt, cropped jacket with exaggerated bow, and black matte tights are utterly divine, but its the cool leopard print pumps that round out the whole classy combination.
Menswear-inspired gets a feminine kick with super sexy round toe pumps in burgundy which AnnaLynne McCord effortlessly adds to her plaid tie, crisp white shirt and pants attire.
Nothing says twentysomething and taken like sweet pink pumps, which were worn by the recently married Hilary Duff. She paired her sweetness with a black one-shouldered minidress, a chain necklace made of circular links and a beaded clutch that went against her otherwise wholesome vibe.
At the Hollywood Awards gala, where Hilary Swank presented an award to a co-star, she lets her bright red, embroidered Giorgio Armani dress do the talking while her champagne colored Jimmy Choo pumps added just a small but noticeable oomph.
Round Toe Pumps With Embellishments
Adding elements and embellishments to round toe pumps like Jenna Uskowitz's studded pumps or Jessica Simpson's round toe heels with bows oomphs up the look even when the rest of the outfit is black and basic.
