René Caovilla’s high-glamour women’s shoes seem plucked from the closet of your favorite fairy tale princess. Lace T-strap platform sandals and sling-backs, crystal-embellished peep-toe booties, glitter-sole pumps, and stiletto boots with daring Lucite heels call to mind Cinderella’s destiny-making glass shoes, but feature top-quality buckles and clasps to avoid accidental slip-offs at midnight. Based in Venice, Italy, René Caovilla has collaborated with the fashion houses Christian Dior and Chanel and is noted for the stunning line of "jewel shoes" he co-created with Karl Lagerfeld. Let’s get one thing crystal-clear: his shoes are show-stoppers.

The legendary Giuseppe Zanotti famously draws inspiration from the women around him (think muses like Kate Moss and Salma Hayek), so it's easy to see why his designs make such an impact. Score a pair of undeniably sexy shoes for the season, from electric blue T-strap heels, leopard-print sandals, bejeweled stilettos, and more — from Italy, with love!
