While there is usually a bit of overlap between NYFW, LFW, MFW and PFW, this year event organizers were careful mostly not to step on anyone’s toes. (With the exception of Paris of course, because Paris.) New York, London, and Milan are happening in quick succession, with no more than a day of space between all three. Paris, on the other hand, begins on the same day Milan ends. What does this mean for you, you ask? A non-stop international parade of It Girls showing us the best new shoes that designers have to offer.

When I see Blake Lively in outfits like this, I wonder if she gave up on her now defunct lifestyle website far too soon. Blake wore this gorgeous, poppy-appliqued Michael Kors dress with a a pair of black, spiked Louboutins to Manolo Blahnik in NYC. Just to reiterate: this is what Blake Lively wore to go shoe-shopping.

Gucci‘s latest celeb-approved shoe offerings include high-heeled clogs, high-heeled loafers (which we’ll see in just a sec) and these over-the-top platform pumps, as seen on the feet of Elizabeth Olsen heading into the Gucci show in Milan.

There’s so much to discuss here: Kerry’s extremely cordial relationship with the paps, the return of fringe-cuffed denim and, most importantly, these amazing Salvatore Ferragamo sandals, which make me pine for summer.
