The Golden Globes are almost upon us! Designers have set up salons around town to showcase their wares for stylists and press alike; today we stopped by Alexandre Birman at the Chateau Marmont.
The Brazil-based designer is favored by starlets like Kate Hudson, Demi Moore, J Lo, Blake Lively and Jessica Alba for his vertiginous heels, many with hidden platforms. Birman's PR team told Racked that the styles most popular this awards season were a caged high-heel sandal in electric blue, black and nude, and a platform high-heel slingback in pewter or rose gold satin. For the non-celebrities among us, his footwear can be found at Neiman Marcus, Saks and Net-A-Porter.
