5 Outrageous Celebrity Shoes

This was the year of killer high heels and outrageous shoes so it shouldn't be any surprise that we saw some celebrities go over the top with some of their fashion picks. Some fashion icons managed to work the shoe with tons of confidence while others ended up having the shoe wear them.

Designers are not just creating shoes as some accessory to complete a style but instead, are working on shoes as if they are a garment with all the intricate details and embellishments that go into a design. Big name designer brands like Balenciaga and Christian Louboutin gave celebrities the chance to make a huge statement with their shoes rather than their clothes. But with all the outrageous designs out there, there was bound to be one that would prove to be disastrous.

The number 1 outrageous shoes worn by a celebrity has to go to Malin Akerman's Prada shoes. The actress looked like she was ready to go to battle with Russell Crowe in Gladiator rather than a walk on the red carpet. With those studs, leather fringe and spiky back, Malin aptly described the "shoes business in front, party in the back".

But with her simple blue dress, the shoes added that much needed statement to have all eyes go to Malin. This is the perfect example of wearing outrageous shoes with confidence and it looked like Malin really had fun in them.

Next on my list is Victoria Beckham in her Louis Vuitton Spicy sandals. The shoes that the entrepreneur wore have a lot going on with them with all those colorful embellishments so Victoria was right in keeping the outfit she paired the shoes with ultra simple.

Michelle Monaghan actually also wore the same pair of shoes at an event last year. The actress chose to wear the shoes with a playful red dress. While she looks great and all, I think it was too much and proved to be too distracting.

Next on my list is Kim Kardashian in Martin Margiela boots that are somewhat confusing to me. The reality TV star wore the cut-out boots with spandex leggings, purple tunic, silver scarf and a matching blazer.

The shoes are quite confusing but with Kim's choice in outfits, I think they worked. If she had decided to wear this with a dress however, it would have been an epic fail in style.

Here's one that I think falls into the category of a fashion mishap, Gwyneth Paltrow in Christian Louboutin booties. I always thought that the actresses style was very sophisticated but easy. But the shoes she decided to wear with her simple gray dress were anything but.

The strapped booties make her feet look caged in and completely overwhelmed the dress. I also think that her skin tone and the color of the shoes she decided to wear that night were just wrong to put together.

Last but definitely not least is Lady Gaga in 10-inch Alexander McQueen platform shoes. I can't really talk about outrageous styles without mentioning the princess of pop in any way, shape or form. She's the epitome of outrageous and confident. We've seen Lady Gaga rock these shoes on a music video and on the red carpet. I doubt anyone else could wear them and work it as amazingly as she has.

If you're planning to wear an outrageous style, whether it be your clothes or your shoes, make sure that you don't overdo it. Too much of a statement may just seem silly so choose your fashions wisely.
