Sarah Jessica Parker in Jean Michel Cazabat

Inspired by independent, strong, fiery women with a touch of rock n roll, these shoes certainly stand out from the crowd and will add that final touch to any outfit. Using bright colours, exotic skins and glitter, combined with an ultra feminine aesthetic, shoe-guru Jean-Michel Cazabat has been gaining a following from some of Hollywood’s most stylish leading ladies, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson, Mary-Kate Olsen and Oprah Winfrey.

The man responsible for this gorgeous design began his career in footwear working under shoe designer Charles Jourdan as a buyer and store manager. In 1985 he moved to Stephane Kelian, a prestigious shoe brand based in New York City, serving as president and developing designs for the American Market.

Cazabat was sensing a gap in the market for flirty, whimsical yet fashionable shoes and he soon set out to create footwear encompassing all occasions, from stylish business-wear to flamboyant evening wear. Displaying a penchant for exotic skins and vibrant hues, his design also feature carefully considered detailing, such as braiding, piping and top-stitching to create wonderfully feminine shoes with an edge.

The Jean-Michel Cazabat flagship store opened in New York in 2011 and his shoes are available in the UK at, and You can emulate SJP-slash- Carrie B’s ever sophisticated look at Shopbop, available in aqua & coral for £170.51
