Generally, we think Louboutins are overrated. Yes, the red sole carries all kinds of cache, but that label will never own us as long as Brian Atwood walks this earth.
Then again, there are always exceptions, as Nikki Reed so helpfully pointed out when she stepped onto the blue carpet at this week's Autism Speaks Ball.
Reed wore a Ted Baker dress to the event, made all the more refreshing with a set of structured sleeves. (Sleeves are way too rare on red carpet dresses, even in the winter. It's annoying.)
But it was the shoes that really won us over. Granted, they're nearly $1,000, but for shoe-a-holics like us, they just may be worth it.
