I'm all about Yves Saint Laurent these days--- the sky high heels, classic go-to bags. For me, YSL is the epitome of class and sex appeal. In YSL's spring 09 runway collection, cage shoes were all the rage. Metallic and patent leather booties and boots with zip backs along with gladiator sandals graced the model's feet. Even the heels of these shoes are intricately caged. These creations are an architectural gem. I'm calling these the "sexy it shoe" of the season! These shoes allow you to be experimental when dressing up or down-- wear 'em with tailored cropped pants, a power suit, long cascading dresses. I'm most infatuated with the silver gladiators. They have a goddess feel. These styled with a flowing dress is a striking vision. Though these beauties are sadly out of my price-range, I have a feeling I'll be able to find a pair at least a fraction as hot.
