Kim Kardashian’s maternity style has turned heads and started conversations, as the reality star has not shied away from curve-hugging silhouettes and sky-high stilettos throughout her pregnancy. And her shopping jaunt in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood yesterday was no different: She strode across the downtown sidewalk in a black Stella McCartney dress and matching Valentino cardigan. However, it’s the footwear that’s our favorite part of this outfit because the sandals are a little ode to her boyfriend and father of her unborn baby Kanye West. The wing-covered heels are part of the collection Giuseppe Zanotti designed in honor of West’s Cruel Summer album last year—the white pair she’s wearing are from last season, but this spring they’re available in a black and gold version, shown here. Find them for $1,500 on colette.fr.

This dress is a true showstopper. It’s made by my friends [Connie Majoros and Fannie Chan] who run their own New York-based label, Femmes d’Armes. The first time I saw it on the hanger, my jaw dropped! I paired it with super cheap Zara studded heels that I’ve had in my closet for years, some plastic bracelets I got at the Valentino party last year, and a crazy ring from Topshop. I love to mix high and low. For the hair, we wanted to give it a messy boho vibe to balance out the glamorous feel of the dress, so for the first time ever, I tried a braid. At first we added a hair piece, but it made the braid so long and full it felt unnatural, so last minute right before I was due on stage, we whipped it out and threw together a new braid. I love how it turned out!

“New Yorkers for Children is such an amazing charity,” Nicky Hilton said as she arrived to the ballroom of the Mandarin Oriental wearing a dress by Valentino, who sponsored the organization’s 10th anniversary Spring Dinner Dance, after being the first sponsor a decade ago. Valentino’s presence—despite current designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli nowhere in sight—remained deeply felt, from the flutter of dresses that filled the 36th floor ballroom to the event design crafted by David Stark, who used Valentino’s latest collection as inspiration to use cherry blossoms (hauled in from North Carolina) and over 1,200 silver mirrored candles to “spring” the room to life. Emmy Rossum (in Dior) relaxed during the meal for only a moment before leaping to her feet when DJ D-Nice played the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back—just as the arctic char had been served—starting a vivacious and lively dance party that lasted through midnight, with Rebecca Minkoff, Erin Heatherton, and DJ Harley Viera Newton busting moves to classics by The Eurythmics and the Bee Gees, as well as and pop hits by Rihanna and Florence Welch. Olivia Palermo (in Katie Ermilio) kept her swaying to the sidelines with boyfriend Johannes Huebl, moving her Jimmy Choo shoes to Alicia Keys and Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind.” The event raised $625,000 for New Yorkers for Children—the most ever in the gala’s history—money that supports youth in foster care in New York City. “It’s important to bring everyone together to give back,” said Palermo, describing a feeling validated by each of the 450 guests in the room.

During Paris Fashion Week, the Valentino show offered a collection that was both demure and sexy all at once, enforced by the interplay between coverage and exposure, leather and lace, long and short. To that point, scalloped peek-a-boo dresses balanced sheer panels with long sleeves and dainty pastels. However, no matter how revealing the design, the accessories offered a touch of innocence, like headbands and pearl strands. See our favorite looks in the gallery.
