In the race to declare best-dressed-worst-dressed at Sunday's Academy Awards, we feel that footwear was a sorely neglected category. Save the shoes!
No, seriously. We adored Up in the Air star Anna Kendrick's satin sandals, Carey Mulligan's bold strappy black shoes, Zoe Saldana's purple peep-toes, and Mariah Carey's classic nude Louboutins. Check out some shoe-porn lookalikes we found on Endless.com. We're not convinced we'd be able to walk on any of these, but we're considering ordering the Pura Lopez pair (above) just to put them on a shelf and look at them.
