In my last shoe-centric post about Chrissy Teigen, I pointed out several tricks supermodels use to look perma-fashionable. This exploration of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s designer shoe collection will give you even more ideas, such as “always wear suede.” It is now appropriate for all seasons, and it makes you look like you are one suede sandal-bootied-step ahead of everyone else. Also, you’ll notice that long layers are extremely forgiving, even when there’s absolutely nothing to forgive, because you’re a 10.
Alaïa Studded Suede Boots
Shop Alaïa via Net-a-Porter
Here’s Rosie leaving her NYC hotel in a gorgeous pair of black suede studded Alaïa boots. This is a style the brand particularly excels at, and Rosie’s pair is a fine example of Alaïa’s unrivaled craftsmanship in the detailing department.
Aquazzura Tulum Sandals
$359 via Barneys
Rosie wore these tasseled tan suede Aquazzuras while leaving that same NYC hotel on a separate occasion. I should stress that these sandals are currently on SALE. Rosie has a distinct preference for suede shoes, as you will notice again and again.
Étoile Isabel Marant Leyton Booties
Shop Isabel Marant via Net-a-Porter
Here’s Rosie arriving at LAX with fiancé Jason Statham (regrettably, not seen here). She’s wearing tasseled suede Isabel Marant booties and carrying one of her current favorites, the Céline Belt Bag, which she is carrying in almost all of these photos.
Étoile Isabel Marant Roxann Boots
$705 via Net-a-Porter
Rosie obviously loves Isabel Marant boots in every iteration. She wore these non-tasseled, black suede boots to La Conversation in West Hollywood. Like many supermodels, Rosie frequently dons all-black or mixed neutrals.
Gianvito Rossi Brooklyn Lace-Up Booties
$1,225 via mytheresa.com
This is another fave look of hers: white blouse, skinny denim, suede sandals or booties. (In this case, it’s both.) She wore this classic ensemble to her office in LA. This time her tan suede shoes are Gianvito Rossi.
Gianvito Rossi Lais Booties
$419 via Barneys
Rosie wore these stiletto-heeled Gianvito Rossi sandal-booties to the Ralph Lauren store prior to her arrival at this year’s Met Gala. The sandal-bootie is something Gianvito Rossi clearly excels at, and it may interest you to know that these are currently half off at Barneys. They also come in black leather, if suede is not your preference.
Gianvito Rossi Portofino Sandals
$815 via Saks
Here is our singular non-suede offering in this post, and guess what? It’s another pair of Gianvito Rossis! Rosie wore these minimal black leather GV sandals through LAX, as supermodels so often do. Even her minimal foot tattoo seems supermodel-appropriate.
Saint Laurent Studded Suede Boots
Shop Saint Laurent via Saks
And we’ve come full circle with another pair of studded suede boots. This time they’re by Saint Laurent. Rosie wore these while doing a little shopping at Fred Segal in West Hollywood. As you can see, she has briefly abandoned her Céline Belt Bag for a pale pink Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag.
