Prada Spring 2012 Shoes

Posted on April 16, 2012

Another round of pretend stylist, anyone? Sure, these shoes have already been showing up on the feet of the famous, but pesky reality has never stopped us from expressing an opinion. Don’t forget to play along at home, kids! Simply blurt out the first celeb you think of when you see each shoe.

Ready? GO!



Emma Stone

Elle Fanning

Dita Von Teese


Jennifer Lopez

Scarlett Johansson

Charlize Theron

Paz de la Huerta

      Elle Fanning is a little young for these come-fuck-me shoes.

      • VicD

        Charlize Theron’s should be Reese Witherspoon’s. Then Elle Fanning’s can be Charlize’s, and everyone is happy.  Except Elle.  Who is now shoeless…

        • JDreesen

          that’s okay – goes with her granola tree hugging vibe!

          (wait, what’s a granola tree…and why is everybody hugging it?!?!)

    • G

      Paz de la Huerta – YES!!!  Perfection.  

      • Stella Zawistowski

        If not Paz, then Taylor Momsen — though she’s fallen off the radar enough that she’ll never get them lent to her for free.

        • sleah_in_norcal

          i thought courteney love, probably just cause that looks like her mouth.  not too many people want cigarettes on their feet.

        • spooki C

           You’ll need to put a 3 inch lucite platform on these before Momsen will touch ’em.

        • filmcricket

          I was thinking LiLo, but Paz is a great choice too.

      • MissAnnieRN

        Or LiLo or Courtney Love.  Could also see Kelly Osbourne in them.  Angelina Jolie circa 1999 could have worn these, too.

      • StillGary

        I shouted Lohan — but I guess only the dog agrees with me!

    • twocee

      I thought Katy Perry for the last ones, but that might be a bit too obvious.

      • MilaXX

         Reminded me of Rhi Rhi trailer trash moment.

      • Sara Munoz

        I think she wore a pair from the top photo already? Or are they not pictured? I can’t see Katy endorsing smoking. Sure, she can sing about all kinds of dangerous things for kids to do, but I think her PR guys would draw the line at wearing cigarettes.

    • guest2visits

      Liked the flames on the Prada coats and other garments and accessories; not so much on their shoes.
      In fact; it makes the shoes look alittle junky.

    • PeaceBang

      Too many of these designs go beyond fun and into Stupid territory, instantly lowering the IQ of anyone who wears them. No one above the age of 23 should be wearing those set pieces on their feet. 

      • Mary Nease

        Good thing I’m 21. 😀

      • kimmeister

        And no one who doesn’t want to get maimed should walk behind people wearing these shoes!

      • holdmewhileimnaked

        i dunno, i’m about twice that & i would wear the wedge ones tomorrow. never did like skinny heels. also: never was known as a conservative dresser [not hardly]. & i look a little more than half my age. so gotta add all that in. still, i love the tail light business just to death.

        • girliecue

          Love the tiny tail  lights and mufflers!

    • ccm800

      Hahah on the obvious Paz! LOL 

    • Paola Thomas

      With the exception of Charlize and Scarlett’s shoes (which are gorgeous), these are all so crass…

    • kimmeister

      The ones earmarked for JLo made me think of Kylie Minogue’s recent tour wardrobe.

    • Ana Ced

      those aw not JLO, way too classy and pretty

    • MilaXX

      Ciara, Nicki Minaj, Eve,  Dita Von Teese, Emma Stone,  January Jones, Gwen Stefani, Christina Hendrix, Rhianna

    • crash1212

      Man, I hate these shoes with the white hot heat of a thousand suns – having said that, Paz de la Huerta…indeed! Maybe exceptions to the white hot heat…etc. are Elle Fanning and Charlize Theron. 

      • MissAnnieRN

        ME TOO.  I am so glad we are all using fire metaphors to describe just how much we hate them.  Just because they say “Prada” on them does not make them fabulous.  Sorta like Stella McCartney or Marchesa.

    • rainwood1

      These are suited only for comic book characters except maybe the ScarJo and Charlize shoes.   

    • Kathryn

      Those cigarette shows are “I’ve been fucked, and now I’m having a cigarette!”

    • cmb92191

      Hasn’t Katy Perry worn one of these already?   Either Dita’s or Emma Stones?

    • TheOtherChristina

      Katy Perry, Katy Perry, Katy Perry, etc.

      I actually like the ones you assigned to JLo, though. I appreciate that they’re referential but not literal.

      • NC_Meg

        Same here. I saw Katy Perry and/or Nicki Minaj in almost all of them.

    • alyce1213

      I’m the polar opposite of Paz de la Huerta, but I love how funny the cigarette shoes are, and if I were much younger, would wear them as a tribute to myself for quitting.

    • NC_Meg

      I can also see SJP rocking the ones you picked for ScarJo.

    • Lisa

      I could have sworn the first pair was Katy Perry – didn’t she have those on at some point?

    • janedonuts

      The continued existence of mules never fails to mystify me. Awful, awful, awful stuff.

    • cmb92191

      Being the Tlo nerd that I am, I actually looked up Katy Perry’s shoes.  On the March 8th Miu Miu ladies post, she is wearing a similar flame out  shoe but it is not the same collection. 

    • judybrowni

      Ah, I thank the blogging gods for the Paz reference!

      I can only wonder if she’s still applying lip wear by dipping her face into a can of chocolate frosting.

    • siao

      Me, me, me, me, me…

    • Linderella

      The lips and cigarette are SO Lindsey Lohan, c’mon.  I think she was the inspiration…

    • girliecue

      The Paz shoes were made for Courtney Love. In both the J Lo and Scar Jo I can also see Angelina Jolie (Ange Jo?). And Chloe Sevigny should buy the entire collection for her and her personae.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      Joan Rivers, Katy Perry, Mae Whitman, Eva Mendes, Uma Thurman, Emmy Rossum, Dakota Fanning, Helen Mirren, Lindsey Lohan

    • Nikki

      I WANT THEM ALL (save for the last pair- can’t stand even fake smoke…)

    • YayaGurl

      Is it Ok if I play with characters from Grease?
      3.Cha cha
      5. Sandy
      6. I don’t know, that Pink Lady with the black hair
      9..Sandy post makeover

    • filmcricket

      I don’t see Miss Dita wearing these somehow; too modern for her aesthetic. The yellow ones are Reese Witherspoon, the ones with the lips are LiLo or Nicki Minaj (although I love Paz as a choice as well), the pink and green ones are Katy Perry, the plain-ish red and beige slingbacks are Nicole Kidman, the wedges are Ru Paul, and that’s all I got.

    • Brendan Schulze

      Honestly, I got Sharon Needles vibes from the last pair.

    • hape_dex

      Most of these shoes look ridiculous and shouldn’t be worn by anyone, it looks like a bunch of children played designer by glueing crap on. The Scarlett and Kristen Stewart models are acceptable, everything else gets a big fat NO!

    • korilian

      Kirsten Steward is going to have to fight me for those shoes.

    • fursa_saida

      Please god, don’t let this be The Return of the Strappy Mule. I went through it once during the Year of the Bat Mitzvahs, I am not doing it again.

    • foodycatAlicia

      I’m just seeing the tail lights as dog erections and that is concerning both for fashion and my state of mind.

    • Nancer

      I hate these shoes. And I usually can laugh at and enjoy silliness, but please! These are ridiculous looking shoes. Anyone think of Peewee’s playhouse when you saw them? And I DON’T mean in a good way!

      • Sara Munoz

        Oh! That just made me think of Cyndi Lauper and she could totally rock any of these! I’d love to see her in one of the tail light styles.

    • In_Stitches

      Bobby Trendy for all of them?  

    • MarissaLG

      You got the names right (as always) but these shoes are GROSS.

    • BazoDee

      Hmmm –
      1. Not sure on Emma Stone
      2. Katy Perry
      Replace Scarlett with Reese
      Charlize is Lea Thompson
      Kirsten is Christina Hendrix 
      Paz should be Krysten ­Ritter

    • Deborah Lipp

      I WANT the cig shoes!!

    • poggi

      The problem for me with the shoes for Paz is it would be terribly matchy-matchy if her feet and her face were doing the same thing.

    • Aurumgirl

      Looks like Betsey Johnson has an envious admirer.  That said, I also think they lower the IQ of the wearer.  And maybe of the observer, as well.  Heck, I think I feel dumber already.

    • Eileen Duffy

      I would put Elle’s on Kristen Chenoweth.

      WANT EVERY PAIR!!!!!

    • Little_Olive

      Not enough platform for Rihanna. 

      The JLos are dead on.

    • MissAnnieRN

      I really.  really.  really.  REALLY! hate all of these shoes.  With a burning passion.  Ha.

    • Frank


    • lilazander

      Ok… I would put Hellen Mirren in Scar.Jo’s shoes, what the hell, an Charlize in Lopez’s shoes, and K.Stewart in the last pair.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      OMG, as an ex=smoker, I absolutely LOVE the cigarette shoes.  I don’t know where or how I would wear them, but I.Want.Them.

    • Ros Clarke

      All of them: ME.

    • Pamela

      Ugh.  No thanks.  Someone has a fifties car fixation.  It’s prettier on the cars; this is just fugly & gaudy.

    • bubbles_brule

      You guys are so good. 

    • ballerinawithagun


    • FashionShowAtLunch

      Oh, Prada.  I love you so.  Never change.

    • kim i

      most of those shoes would be a real bitch to drive in.
