On Monday night, Tina Fey stepped out for the This Is Where I Leave You L.A. premiere at TCL Chinese Theatre, where she stunned in an asymmetrical strapless blue-and-red Osman dress and cobalt blue Christian Louboutin “Pigalle” stilettos in python. The almost five-inch heels are named after one of Louboutin’s favorite neighborhoods in Paris, the Pigalle cabaret district. The iconic shoe lent a similarly spirited effect to Fey’s ensemble and garnered many an accolade across the interwebs for nailing the fashion mark.

Meanwhile, across town at DTLA's Ace Hotel, powerhouse writer-creator-director Jill Soloway took the stage to introduce the premiere of new Amazon series Transparent, commenting that the project was not only a movement but an "act of love." On her feet? Maison Martin Margiela, of course — fierce begets fierce, after all. The black peep-toe chunky heel suede booties were the perfect complement to her Issey Miyake blouson pleated pencil dress. She chose them both for their beauty and their comfort but admits, “Once I got to the rooftop party and saw that pool — I ended up barefoot most of the night!”

Across the pond, Vivienne Westwood (one of THR's Top 25 Red-Carpet Designers) took to the runway after her spring 2015 presentation at London Fashion Week with her 17-year-old granddaughter, Cora Corre, in a draped gold and black dress of her own creation and a pair of red on red pointed elevated court shoes. The nearly six-inch-high platforms featured a bright red suede upper, brick red platform, and chunky slanted heel worn with black open-weave tights for maximum dramatic effect.

Julianne Hough taped a segment for Extra! in a floral Zimmermamn dress with strategic cutouts. Showing off her dancing gams, Hough paired her colorful outfit with gold metallic Monique Lhuillier stilettos with cutwork and lacing that tied back in to the silhouette of the dress. While Lhuillier is best known for her red carpet and bridal gowns, her Made in Italy shoe collection debuted last fall and we expect to see more of her footwear creations on the carpet this awards season. Stylist Anita Patrickson weighed in on the total ensemble, noting the shape interplay. "We loved the cutouts, and graphic yet summery feel to this look," says Patrickson. "When picking an outfit for a TV appearance, we try to choose something that is interesting on the upper body, as that's what shows most in interviews and the shoes were fun enough to balance out the business of the dress."

Performing at the iTunes Festival in London on Wednesday, Blondie's Debbie Harry took a page from Whoopi Goldberg’s shoe playbook and sported two different colors of the same shoe. Her black-and-white striped miniskirt-over-pants tuxedo look was styled with one black and one white flatform sandal with ankle straps. Her set was well reviewed, proving this 69-year-old celebrated rocker will not be slowing down on the pop front — or the fashion front — anytime soon.
