New Girl on the Block

Move over Christian, Manolo and Pierre. There is a new girl in town and she is going to knock your soles off.

Charlotte Olympia Dellal is a name that has been growing momentum for some time now. Her wonderfully quirky shoe label, Charlotte Olympia, is appearing on the perfectly pedicured feet of many a celebrity, It Girl and all those in between. I'm officially obsessed.

Charlotte is no stranger to celebrity-dom herself. Born into prominent London It-Family, the Dellals, her sister Alice is a model and her younger brother Alex is dating Monaco beauty Charlotte Casiraghi. Her wedding last June was attended by the likes of Margherita Missoni, Vito Schnabel and Tatiana Santo Domingo.

Charlotte started her shoe line in 2006. Inspired by the glamor of the 1940's and 50's, her shoes make bold statements with blocks of color, vertiginous, decorated heels and her signature leopard print. And every sole features her spiders web logo.

Her inspiration for the fall collection was stain glass windows.  And every pair of colored shoes come with a matching pair of colored stockings. How old school and brilliant is that!
