Style It: Shoes and the City -- Samantha

Cosabella lingerie has issued the official undergarments for the new Sex and the City movie and our good friends over at Isabella Fine Lingerie are stocking them. Of course, we immediately set out to pair shoes to each. We're starting with the Samantha, described in the official literature as "designed in French Chantilly style lace with fine, micro-dot mesh."

So we chose some shoes that represented Samantha's confident sexuality -- womanly and worldy, aggressive, yet coy, with the faintest touch of feminine frills.

And now we want to know how you would style it. Take a look below, read up on the rules and start styling, you maven you!

Rae by Boutique 9 at Lori's Shoes
Feliciana by Modern Vintage at Lori's Shoes

Adriana by Caparros at Lori's Shoes
Hayes by Boutique 9 at Lori's Shoes

The rules: Find a shoe in our online store that best compliments the Samantha collection. Link to it in the comments of this post and describe why you chose what you chose. Style-a-thon ends Saturday, 17 May at midnight; we'll post the winning pairing the following week. Winner gets a private code for 20% off their next online purchase at Lori's. Happy styling!

Also, check out Fab Sugar's Who Wore It Better contest on the Balenciaga Blue and Green Gladiator Sandal, referencing Sex and the City and Sarah Jessica Parker.

UPDATE (05-19-08): We have a winner! We've picked Diana's red strappy number by Kenneth Cole as a perfect compliment to the sultry Samantha collection. We like the bold sass of these heels and the caged ankle. Mee-ow!

These super sexy Calvin Klein silver strappy platforms are just SO luciously over the top!. They'd be perfect on SJP with a tiny black tank top and shorts for an evening walk with Big to get ice cream (and a cigarette on the stoop!). Or they would be great with a slinky black minidress at a party (so long as you make the Ferry back!). Or even with Carrie's favorite beat up jeans and a Christian LaCroix tank top for a hot date (without Big). These are it - SJP would love em!

Reaction by Kenneth, Know Way_ Red

If this shoe does not SCREAM Samantha, I don't know what does! It's strapy, sexy and BOLD! The cagey strap around the ankle is a must for Samantha!! They will look sexy and stay on during any and all kinds of sex.
When Samantha wears this pair, she is ready to ROCK! Watch out boys!

These black strappy babies look quite SM and would fit Ms Samantha to a TEE(strap).

They'd be SO perfect for clubbing, the afterparty, and kind of play Samantha might be into that evening...well, unless it involves walking on his back ("in THESE shoes?!? I don't think so!")

Hot, hot, hot and BOLD too. Just like the darling girl herself!
