Keds for Madewell Spring 2012 Footwear.

It's no surprise that Keds are making a serious comeback. Proof: Alexis Krauss of the supercool Brooklyn duo Sleigh Bells religiously rocks Keds (um, have you seen their latest music video?) and the canvas tie-ups are even featured on the band's new album cover, Reign of Terror, which hits stores today. We're so excited to announce that Keds are teaming up with Madewell for a limited-edition sneaker collection, so Lex Krauss (as we affectionately call her) and every sneaker lover worldwide can rejoice at the endless possibilities these colorful kicks can bring to their ensembles.

Nicholas Kirkwood's spring collection at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City.

To say we're bananas about shoes is an understatement. Give us sky-high platforms, wooden clod-hoppers, sparkle oxfords, or neon yellow heel warriors and we're beaming with everlasting joy. Give us a pair designed by Nicholas Kirkwood, however, and we're gone. Finito. Passed out under the table. You guys, Nicholas Kirkwood's heels, nay works of art, are so bazonkers amazing, we need to break out the smelling salts when a new collection debuts. And once you see them in person and/or feel their gloriousness on your feet—like we did last night at Saks Fifth Avenue in Manhattan (*squee*)—their beauty becomes three-dimensional yet still totally unreal. Mr. Kirkwood himself was in attendance from his native Britain to debut the spring collection, and from the lines of well-heeled ladies waiting to get a moment of his time to the oohing and ahhhing over a pair of scribbled flower color block platforms, we knew we died and went to shoe heaven.

Beyoncé, Katy Perry, and Rooney Mara have great shoes.

Shoes, y'all. They cradle your feetsies. They keep you balanced. They're your pedestrian chariot to and from home/office/class/gym/every place. They do a lot of hard work. But they're not all function and brass tacks, nor should they be regarded as such, a refrain evidently held true by footwear fashionistas Beyoncé, Katy Perry, and Rooney Mara. Shoes are the one accessory you absolutely HAVE to wear each day, no excuses, and they quite literally finish off an outfit—the cherry on top to your ice cream sundae of an ensemble. Granted, sometimes circumstances call for more subdued/conservative fare, but when the situation allows for it, we're all about some peeper-popping footwear. That's why, each week, we gladly applaud the good work of the ladies who do it right (e.g., Miss Knowles, Perry, and Mara). LEGO!

Kristen Stewart's custom Vans.

What's there not to love about Vans slip-ons? They're easy to slide on like *cringe* flip-flops or Crocs but look a bajillion times better. Plus, they go with everything! Take Kristen Stewart, for example. She sported a Marios Schwab nude and black minidress with checkered Vans back in November (above) AND slipped on the sneaks during the 2011 Movie Awards, proving that these shoes can, in fact, be worn with anything. But that's just the beginning! Vans is bringing back its third annual Custom Culture art project, where high schools around the United States can show off their creativity on their own pair of kicks. Joining teens from coast to coast are celebs like Conan O'Brien, Lucy Hale, and (you guessed it!) K Stew to help raise money for educational art programs. But, um, can we get real for a second and look at Kristen's "designed" sneaks?

Chloë Moretz, Selena Gomez, and Katy Perry wear the week's most eye-catching shoes.

There are garments so fabulous you need simple footwear to balance them out, to complement but not compete with the rest of the ensemble. And then there are outfits that, while beautiful and could certainly stand alone, are kicked up that extra notch by the perfect jaw-dropping pair of shoes. Shoe Update veterans Chloë Moretz, Selena Gomez, and Katy Perry know a thing or two about show-stopping footwear, and their shoe game during this week's host of red carpet soirees was exceptional.

Kelly Osbourne, Elizabeth Banks, and Jessica Hart wear the week's best shoes.

Just because this week offered scant the awards show action of last week, doesn't mean fashionistas and their glitzy feetsies went on hiatus. This Shoe Update features Kelly Osbourne turning it out another week in a row alongside the exemplary heels of Elizabeth Banks and model Jessica Hart. Though nary an award was doled out this week (though, that will change come Sunday's Screen Actors' Guild Awards), we're serving up some style kudos to these ladies for keeping the bar high, even on a bye week.

It's a big day for the citizens of Panem (and all of us people here in the real world). For those of us who rabidly follow anything and everything related to the book series turned film franchise, The Hunger Games, we have much to celebrate as the Capitol Couture fashion site is ZOMG FINALLY LIVE! This is mayjah news, and not just for fans of the book and the upcoming film, but for anyone interested in marketing. Turning the out-there, post-apocalyptic fashion that is so integral to the story of The Hunger Games into a real, living/breathing Tumblr street style site is a work of genius. With one click, you've entered the world of the film and are rewarded with a profile on "Capitol-born style icon" Effie Trinket, aka Elizabeth Banks in all her pink-pastel Chinoiserie gloriousness. And beyond that, we're treated to nail art tips, street style shots of shoes (including TO DIE gold "vintage" Alexander McQueen heeled booties), and some sort of contest involving District Stylists. Holy Mockingjay, people, we are SO INTO THIS.

Shailene Woodley, Solange Knowles, and Kelly Osbourne wear shocking shoes.
Photo: Getty Images

Shailene Woodley, Solange Knowles, and Kelly Osbourne all pulled out some eyebrow-raising footwear decisions this week, and we're using this week's Shoe Update to shed some light on them. We've definitely heard of people making fashion statements at red carpet events (*cough* meat dress *cough* egg arrival), but this is a breed of shock factor we're not as familiar with. We're talking about the style choices that aren't necessarily as outrageous as Lady Gaga's awards show theatrics but are shocking enough to drop a jaw or two. I'ts a mysterious purgatorial category, so let's dissect these three ladies and their shoes a little furthur.

Jessica Simpson, Christina Milian, and Rashida Jones sport great shoes on the TCA Winter Press Tour.

Looks like the lovely ladies of NBC aren't just repping their shows on this year's TCA Winter Press Tour. Fashion Star's Jessica Simpson, new Social Media Correspondent for The Voice Christina Milian, and Rashida Jones of Parks and Rec turned it out with stellar shoe game for the NBC Universal All-Star party. As sleeping bag coats become more prevalent, footwear choices tend to grow more sensible, more weather-appropriate, more zzzzzz, but not for these ladies. Jessica, Christina, and Rashida say buck convention, serving up some of the wildest pairs of heels this side of Lady Gaga!

Sneaker Nail Art

Nails inspired by Air Jordan 1 Phat sneakers.

Last time we dove into the world of cray cray nail art, we got a tiny peek into the lives of lady sneakerheads who match their decked out nails to their even more amazing shoes. From the colors to the patterns to even the logo, these girls SERIOUSLY nailed it (and judging by the reaction over the new Air Jordans, sneakerheads don't mess around). But, hey, we're busybodies! We need to know MOAR. We had absolutely no problem searching the internetz for hours for our favorite sneaker-inspired designs, and our first find was some KILLER hot pink, black, and neon green Air Jordan 1 Phat sneakers. Whew, we need to get our hands on these! Eileen over at The Sneakerette used Essie Mod Squad, Wet n Wild French White Creme, China Glaze Electric Pineapple, and CM Nail Art in Black to create this neon French mani with a pebbled accent finger. We love how the white tips with the pink emulate the white sole paired with the shiny patent leather, and the accent from the inside of the shoe on her ring finger is just PERFECT. Jealz.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
