Alexis Bledel looks chic and sophisticated at the ELLE’s Fashion Next Runway Show at New York’s Fashion Week on Thursday. She rocked a simple, high-waist skirt with a slim white blouse. The best part of her outfit was her rocking red heals!

Autumn is the perfect time to wear bold, ‘look at me’ heels at work and then transition the outfit to night!

Try these Red Heels to jazz up your outfits:

Christian Louboutin Patent New Simple Pump $595.00

Steve Madden Kattrina $99.95

Gianni Bini Regal Pump $69.99

Je t'aime! A pair of Loubies is on my small list of designer items that I want to save up to get over the next decade. Don't know if I'm brazen enough to get a red pair (probably going for classic black or nude), though these do look hot!

On March 27, 2007, Christian Louboutin filed an application for U.S. trademark protection of this red sole design.

"Everybody applauded! And I thought, 'Well, at least if I regret it I'm going to be like the sister of Sophia Loren!"

Christian Louboutin helped bring stilettos back into fashion in the 1990s and 2000s, designing dozens of styles with heel heights of 120mm (4.72 inches) and higher. The designer's professed goal is to “make a woman ...
