I don’t think I’ve ever featured a pair of nude pumps before even though it’s something every woman should have in her closet. Mine are Lanvin but I think I need another pair, a stiletto. Plus, even nude comes in many different shades. At the moment, the front runners are Miu Miu and these by Brian Atwood. 
They are crazy high (oh, the joy of a hidden platform) and something about the seams in the front reminds me of a ballet pointe shoe. And Mr. Brian Atwood himself? This guy is like the Tom Ford of shoes: drop dead gorgeous! After graduation from F.I.T, he spent seven years working as a model, eventually ending up as an accessories designer for Gianni Versace. He started his namesake label in 2001, and also designs for Bally. Sorry ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Atwood is currently in a relationship with Nate Berkus. Yes, the Nate Berkus. Now, how do I get an invite to their dinner parties?
