Lily Collins stunned at the Rome Film Festival in an ombré Elie Saab Spring/Summer ’14 couture gown, but I was more taken by the understated pieces worn to complement the look. First off, there was only one jewel – Vita Fede’s delicate Ultra Mini V Pearl Ring (on Shopbop for $235). Lily’s other covetable accessories, Brian Atwood’s black satin Hamper pumps, spent most of the evening in hiding. Nevertheless, he is the undisputed king of red carpet shoes, and not just for their beauty (Really, though, is there anything more glam than a pair of satin heels?). Comfort is key for premieres and other events where you’re on your feet. And when you’re petite like Lily and me, the height of his platform pumps is SO appreciated. While they didn’t make much of an appearance, the extra inches ensured that her dress fell at just the right height and those few special peeks we got only amped up the sophistication of the ensemble more. Brian always looks out for us Snobs! Brian Atwood shoes available on NET-A-PORTER.
