1.Alexandre VauthierMuch like Alexandre Vauthier’s fall 2012 couture gowns, his footwear favoured a palette of gold and white. Some shoes were accented by clear plastic, but it was the full gold lace booties, which looked like they could be a feature in the interior of the palace of Versaille, that wowed most.

Jean Paul Gaultier couture is nothing if not theatrical, and his thigh-high leather cage shoes – worn especially with flapper-esque fringed dresses – looked like they belonged as much on a stage as on the runway.
