Celebrities often have access to scores of top luxury designers for red carpet appearances, so when they choose an affordable brand, it's probably not a coincidence. Kerry Washington recently made an appearance at the premiere of Sylvie's Love wearing Chinese Laundry's Krafty Knee-High Boots ($130), which we imagine she chose for their classic shape and comfortable block heels. (Oh, and the very reasonable price tag certainly doesn't hurt, either.)
Washington's leather red carpet boots are available at Nordstrom and also come in suede in three colors. While designer shoes are always tempting, it's necessary to own pairs that you can stomp around in all kinds of weather without worrying about keeping your investment in pristine condition. Given her A-list stamp of approval, we have a feeling these boots will sell like crazy at Nordstrom, and we're generally right about these kinds of things. Scroll down to see how Kerry Washington styled her $130 boots and shop them for yourself.
