Miley Cyrus

We couldn't decide between her custom Versace thigh-high, platform, silver space boots with crystal-encrusted platform heels or her Sophia Webster six-inch, bright pink, jewel-embellished platforms, so we picked both.


Styled with her fringe-cut Herve Leger by Max Azria outfit, the gray cage lattice peep-toe ankle booties had us at hello.

Helen Lasichanh and Pharrell Williams

The denim-clad couple stood out with high-end crocodile work boots with three out of four shoes laced up in fluorescent laces.

Taylor Swift

The evening's winner rocked a pair of custom bedazzled Stuart Weitzman "Gran" platform open-ankle booties with red crystals for her performance with Nicki Minaj.

Demi Lovato

Lovato signaled that she's all grown up in a pair of nude classic patent Christian Louboutin So Kate's.

Karlie Kloss

Kloss opted for comfort on the carpet in the Giuseppe Zanotti golden flat Grecian goddess sandals. Even in flats, the supermodel towered over her BFFs from the "Bad Blood" crew. 

Emily Ratajkowski

We're guessing these have a zip up in the back, otherwise it looks like hours of lacing to get into these thigh-high, lace-up, studded stiletto beauties with a leather ruffle. These are, by far, the most adventurous shoes she's worn on the carpet and we love the statement.

Baddie Winkle

Another day, another pair of platform sneakers: Baddie is a badass when it comes to footwear.

Arielle Vandenberg

The Ugly Truth actress tapped Chelsea Paris to complete her velvet ensemble with distinctive platinum, butterfly, single-strap, scallop-cutout ankle stilettos.
