The man who is the master of the stiletto, Brian Atwood, and whose shoes have a cult-fan following — everyone from celebs to editors to you and me – has recently launched a capsule jewelry collection. Besides the man’s fab, extremely successful shoe line, he launched his first line of handbags in March which no surprise to anyone was a huge hit.
The sleek and sexy collection, which consists of 6 styles available in both hematite plated brass and 10K gold-plated, includes wrap bracelets, lustrous choker necklaces, and cuffs with an architectural slant. Velvet ties (on cuffs and wrap bracelets) are a fresh touch and a luxurious addition to a trend that is at the height of its popularity.
Not straying to far from his roots, Brian spoke with elle.com and explained,”I was inspired by the sexy shape of a stiletto heel–the same shape that is on the façade of my new store on Madison Avenue,” he told ELLE.com. “It’s an iconic shape that I think makes the jewelry powerful yet still feminine.”
The collection ($175–$495) is available now at Brian Atwood’s Madison Avenue store in NYC and on brianatwood.com.
Rachel McAdams, arriving at the BBC 1 studios in London to promote her new film The Vow, cuts a dapper figure in a collarless buckle-clasp wool coat by The Row. Underneath her divine coat Rachel wears a flirty black skater dress with a leather peter pan collar by Lover and nude Brian Atwood pumps with ankle straps.
Rachel’s personal style is casual (except for when on the red carpet) and her love of vintage pieces reflects her appreciation of the past. “Most of my fashion sense growing up was from my mum, who’s a beautiful lady, so I guess I have her to thank for any of those inclinations.” Her style tip for life is to always, “Wear what you love. I think clothes always look the best if you’re enjoying what you’re wearing and you feel good in it. That’s all that matters.”
The Vow, which opens February 10 and also stars Channing Tatum, is bound to be another romantic blockbuster for Rachel and who knows, may make Channing Tatum this generation’s next leading man.

Demi Moore looked glam yet rocker-chic in leather leggings, a sheer white tie blouse, black blazer, along with Brian Atwood black patent pumps and a metallic clutch.
To get Demi’s look, start with leather-like leggings, wear a loose white tunic, preferably one that’s a bit see-through and/or has a deep-V neckline. Underneath the slightly sheer top, wear a sexy black bra like Demi’s. Next, add a black blazer (this one actually has a slit opening in the back!) – it adds polish to the look and provides an extra layer of warmth. Finally, throw on some black patent pumps, and grab a metallic clutch, like this beautiful gold beaded one, and you are ready for a night out!

The best dressed list for this years Grammy’s contains ladies who have become quite the regulars: Nicole Kidman in John Paul Gaultier looked ravishing-no wonder Keith sings she’s his better half, Eva Longoria in Ashi Studio shows us she’s got legs and knows how to use them – with some help from her Brian Atwood pumps, and Lea Michele bringing sexy back and looking classic in Emilio Pucci.
Along with the faces we know, there were the new kids on the block-faces I am sure we will be seeing a lot more of: Selena Gomez rocked it in J Mendal-looking fresh and sophisticated at the same time, Dianna Argon brought a little edge to the ceremonies in her Vivienne Westwood, and Jennifer Hudson drove the men gaga with her new figure and Versace gown.
