Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez Drops, Fulfills Our Stiletto Fantasies
She may still just be Jenny from the block, but J. Lo has been on a serious hot streak these days—what with her on-fire look at the 2017 People's Choice Awards and steaming up are-they-or-aren't-they relationship with Drake, but also thanks to her brand-new shoe collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti. And as of Monday, Jan. 23, it has finally launched! Lopez announced the collaboration last July and last week the duo released a behind-the-scenes video of the partnership (watch it below). And now we have what everyone's been waiting for: images of the shoes themselves. From blinged out stiletto booties to sneaker wedges, this collection has something for everyone—even if you toward the conservative or love the full-on glam look, rhinestones and all. Video by Heather Sommerfield "Whether I'm walking the red carpet, performing on stage or meeting my girls for lunch on a day off, shoes pull a look together and literally and figuratively lift me up," said Lopez in a release from the brand. "With Giuseppe, we created an ultra-modern, feminine collection of killer heels, sexy flats, and fashion-forward sneakers. And as you would expect, there’s just the right amount of sparkle." "I've always loved how Jennifer wears my shoes and admired her innate sense of style," Zanotti stated. "More than a muse, Jennifer was a great design partner and this collection really represents a strong, sensual, sophisticated woman—just like Jennifer." Scroll down below to view the collection, which features a neutral and pastel modern color palette as well as suede, satin, printed leather, and crystals. The collection is available now in select Giuseppe Zanotti Design stores worldwide, on giuseppezanottidesign.com, as well as in top luxury department stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and Nordstrom.
Zayn Malik Launches His Giuseppe Zanotti Shoe Collection and It's Fire
We didn't think it was possible, but Zayn Malik just got even hotter. The former One Directioner-turned-sexy solo artist just launched a men's shoe collection with Giuseppe Zanotti and the pieces have us in awe of his designing talents. (And honestly, we've never been more jealous of Gigi Hadid.) The Giuseppe for Zayn capsule collection, available in stores late January, features two boot and two sneaker styles, all emblazoned with a "Giuseppe for Zayn" logo plate so you can literally wear your love for him on your feet. Hadid has already beat us to it: Back in October she wore a pair of his black "Zigi" booties and simultaneously proved that this line isn't just for men. [tiImage img-pos="2" image_style="684xflex" align="center"] "I really believe style comes from taking chances, being bold, and not being afraid to express yourself," Malik said in a release. "I feel Giuseppe does that with his collections—and I try to do that with my music. So when the idea came up to collaborate, I thought, 'Yes, this would work.'" [tiImage img-pos="1" image_style="684xflex" align="center"] The collection features green, brown, and black kicks in rich suede and leather, making them the perfect complement to an athleisure look—or a great gift for the man or woman in your life. According to the brand, the booties range in price from $795 to $1,295. The kicks will be available in select Giuseppe Zanotti Design stores, on giuseppezanottidesign.com, and in department stores (including Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom).

Fame and fortune may seem like enough from the outside, but these multi-tasking celebrities prove they can dip their toes in any pool (or shoe!) with their unique and impressive side jobs: footwear lines. The actors, singers, and celebrity children have shown off their design talents with best-selling collaborations and entire clothing and accessory labels. In fact, some of these stars have pushed so hard for their designs and stood by their brands for so long that their shoe lines are now one of the first associations people make with them.
