You would think that access to endless designer goodies would make it near impossible for celebrities to choose favourites. But stars ( they’re just like us!) can’t resist tried-and-trued accessories, especially when it comes to footwear.

Her obsession may have started on the set of Sex and the City, Sarah Jessica Parker’s love for Manolo Blahnik is everlasting. Sure, SJP has dabbled in other designer heels from time to time, but she ends up reaching for her Manolos so often that she even collaborated on her own collection with the brand.

Christian Louboutin is a celebrated go-to shoe designer for celebs as well. High profile fans include Angelina Jolie and Kristen Stewart, but if we were to name one famous fan that isn’t shy about her red sole shoe obsession, it’s Blake Lively. (Honestly, just count the times she’s stepped out in them!) And you know the feelings are mutual when the designer himself (who also happens to be her shoe consultant?!?), names a shoe after her. #nbd

And there’s no need to question the fact that royals play favourites too. If you’re a regular viewer of our Kate Middleton gallery, you know that the Duchess is a queen when it comes to repeating outfits—shoes included. Jimmy Choo and Alexander McQueen make their rounds, but it’s her neutral L.K. Bennett Sledge pumps that makes it on the top of her list.

From Rihanna’s heeled sandals to Victoria Beckham’s killer black pumps, we present you the guide to A-list stars’ favourite shoes. You know, just in case you plan to channel one of these leading ladies on your next shoe-shopping spree.
