When the holiday party invitation calls for “festive attire,” Miu Miu’s peep-toe ankle booties ($890) more than fit the bill—and they’re infinitely more stylish than a seasonal sweater. Gold-glitter-dipped and cocooned in pink suede, the boots take their cue from the disco floor (with a dash of The Wizard of Oz thrown in for good measure). Whowhatwear.com cofounder and editorial director Hillary Kerr likens them to “little works of incredibly chic art.” Indeed, with their perfectly rounded heels and suede fans that extend like the sails of a Chinese junk boat, the booties possess a certain sculptural quality. But we suspect it’s their sheer razzle-dazzle that’s making them a mainstay on many a fashion insider’s shoe rack this season. “Let’s just say that if these shoes were under my tree, I’d start shouting Rachel Zoe-isms uncontrollably (“I die, I die!”), and then I might actually keel over on the spot due to obscene amounts of joy,” says Kerr.
