Love the Sales, a leading online source for shopping designer sales surveyed British women on their thoughts about celebrities’ fashion choices from the past decade, and they made their opinions known about which duchess has the best style.
Even though it’s been over 2 years since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their engagement, the people have not forgotten about her slight faux-pas on that day. Markle was seen in photos wearing shoes that were considered too big by some observers, and it landed her on the final spot in the survey’s “Top Five Fashion Fails of the Twentyteens.”
For the announcement in November 2017, the Duchess of Sussex wore Aquazzura’s Matilde suede nude sandals that retail for $695. Royal fans were quick to notice that the shoes were too big on her feet and gaped at the heel; though the oversized fit is a styling hack to avoid blisters on the back of the foot, it was still viewed as a faux pas on the British survey.
Meghan’s sister-in-law Kate Middleton also made the list, but for her fashion successes. The Duchess of Cambridge’s Alexander McQueen wedding dress from her 2011 nuptials to Prince William nabbed the top spot for the “Top Five Fashion Wins of the Twentyteens.” She also earned the No.2 spot for the top fashion icons of the decade behind British television presenter Holly Willoughby.

The Nike Kyrie 6 was designed for “fast and quick-cutting playmakers” and features a ton of tech from the brand such as a large articulated Air Zoom Turbo bag that’s flexible and responsive, Traction 360 grip to keep the wearer feeling connected to the court, a mid foot strap for stability and a plush foam for optimum cushion and a smooth underfoot feel.

For footwear, he stepped into New Balance’s 997Hs — lifestyle sneakers with roots in the cult-classic 997s. The sneakers came in a bold shade of eggplant purple and green on a white base.
The Miami spotting followed Hailey Bieber’s Thanksgiving Day appearance, where she was also decked out in the Swoosh. Yesterday, she wore a pair of the sportswear giant’s versatile Free TR8 shoes, featuring a mesh construction, deep grooves and a sock-like fit.
For Thanksgiving, Rihanna debuted the Fenty puffer boots 115, the brand’s latest shoe release, giving us another reason to be thankful for the entertainer-designer.

Rihanna launched her luxury label this year with the backing of LVMH. As the first female-founded brand backed by the conglomerate, Fenty is known for its refreshed approach to retail.

Black Friday is on track to be the biggest online shopping day of the holiday season for the third year in a row.
That’s according to Salesforce, which projects online sales in the United States today to grow 16% year over year to $7.4 billion. Around the world, the software firm forecasts an even larger 24% gain for digital revenues to hit a whopping $40 billion.
“Digital commerce continues to grow overseas this holiday as retailers and consumers adopt traditions like Black Friday and Cyber Monday that create spikes in deals and demand,” said VP of strategy and insights Rob Garf. “This year, international buyers will be the No. 1 driver of digital spend.”
Due to a later-than-usual start to the holiday and six fewer days between Thanksgiving and Christmas, Salesforce observed that some businesses have turned to innovative marketing strategies to lure in online shoppers. One such tactic includes the release of limited-edition merchandise, as brands and retailers seek to capitalize on millennials’ and Generation Zers’ appetite for one-of-a-kind pieces.
“Brands and retailers will feel the effects of a [millennial and] Gen Z [demographic] with even greater purchasing power,” Garf added. “Not only are these shoppers more likely to get inspiration on emerging digital platforms, but they are also pushing the boundaries of where actual purchases will happen.”
The predictions follow a strong kickoff to the holiday weekend, with Thanksgiving’s digital sales in the U.S. climbing 17% to $4.1 billion and global online revenues surging 24% to $20 billion.
Further, Salesforce found that 60% of digital orders on Thanksgiving were placed on mobile devices, with mobile conversion rising to 4% as consumers not only browsed but also bought on the platform during the holiday.
“No matter what direction brands and retailers chose to take this year, the season has already shaped up to be one of the most unique yet,” said Garf.
Sofia Richie wore a pair of sparkling Manolo Blahnik mules yesterday to celebrate Thanksgiving in Miami. The brand’s Lurum black satin mules feature a pointed toe on a 3.5-inch heel. The shoes are embellished with crystals along the front and strap that crosses over the middle of the foot. The mule is constructed of viscose and silk.
The daughter of Lionel Richie paired the luxury label’s shoes with a pair of boyfriend jeans, a brown halter tank top and gold jewelry. On Instagram, she shared a photo of the look, writing, “Day of thanks.”
Manolo Blahnik recently revealed its spring 2020 line featuring the mules in two new colorways, pale yellow and royal blue. The latest collection is inspired by Parisian Brocades, Pastel Macaroons and the designer’s “reckless youth,” according to the brand.
Nike is undoubtedly one of the most popular sportswear brands in the market right now, and that’s mostly due to its long-lasting history of innovative footwear designs that have continued to stand the test of time.
Now, let’s explore 15 of the most notable Nike sneakers of all time while readers can also add a few of these models to your closet.
Nike Air Force 1
Originally introduced in 1982 as a basketball sneaker, the Nike Air Force 1 remains a classic in the modern day, but is more recognizable as a streetwear icon while retaining its roots thanks to its leather upper with springy Air cushioning in the midsole.
The Nike Air Max 1 is a trailblazer in the footwear sector thanks to the Air Max-cushioning featured on the midsole revealing the first-ever visible air unit seen in a sneaker and jumpstarting the Air Max line that has lasted for decades.
Another classic shoe from the Nike Air Max line is the Air Max 90 designed by Tinker Hatfield and was introduced in 1990 and it stays true to its original running roots with a breathable low-cut upper complemented by the iconic Waffle outsole.
Continuing the Air Max lineage is the Nike Air Max 95 designed to represent the human body with the mesh upper represented by the skin; panels are the muscles; the lace loops for the ribs; and the midsole for the spine.
Inspired by Japan’s high-speed Bullet Trains, the Nike Air Max 97 shook up the running world with its innovative full-length Nike Air unit featured on the midsole that takes comfort to a whole new level.
First debuted in the film “Back to the Future Part II,” the Nike Air Mag remains one of the most sought-after sneakers ever released. Only a limited quantity was available in 2011 and 2016 when pairs were auctioned off to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research.
Similar to the aforementioned Nike Dunk, the Swoosh has also created an alternate version of the sneaker that features modifications specifically for skateboarding, including a thicker padded tongue and Zoom Air cushioning in the midsole.
Back in 2012, Nike and artist Tom Sachs partnered to create the Nike Mars Yard shoe inspired by Sachs’ interactions with NASA scientists, which saw a re-release in 2017 with pairs only available to those that completed his unique “Space Camp” consumer experience. The shoe is currently fetching over $3,000 on resell sites.
Released in 1991, the Nike Air Huarache remains one of the most popular offerings from the brand. The shoe’s standout feature is the lining of the shoe, which is created to act as an exoskeleton for the wearer, molding to the shape of the foot and ankle.
Before forming an ongoing partnership with Adidas, Kanye West released the Nike Air Yeezy in 2009, which was the first-ever shoe to bear the Yeezy name and shook up the sneaker world with its groundbreaking design.
Kanye West and Nike followed up its inaugural Air Yeezy model with the Air Yeezy 2 in 2012. Many sneaker fans still regard it as the best sneaker model that West has ever released and it’s evident with the model’s high resell prices.
Kourtney Kardashian, 40, posted a slideshow yesterday on Instagram that’s dedicated to her sister Kim Kardashian and her children to show gratitude for her family. For the photoshoot in Armenia, all of the members of the family wore all-black outfits paired with black slip-on shoes and distinctive red soles.
The eldest Kardashian sister captioned the Instagram post: “Overwhelmed with thankfulness, words cannot express.”
The first photo features Kourtney alongside her children Mason, 9, Penelope, 7, and Reign, 4. The second photo features all of Kourtney’s children alongside Kim’s children North, 6, Saint, 3, and Chicago, 1. Kourtney and the girls accessorized with chic gold necklaces.
Kourtney has been an avid lover of wearing head-to-toe black. On Nov. 22, the founder of Poosh wore a pair of pointed-toe, slouchy over-the-knee Saint Laurent boots with a similarly dark, monochrome ensemble. Earlier this month, the E! star wore a pair of strappy black sandals styled with a sleeveless, shiny black dress, which featured a plunging neckline.
This past summer, Kourtney added a few colorful accents to her ensembles, such as when she styled a black bra-top and pants with blue feather detailing along with black and red strappy sandals.
Newlyweds Joe Jonas, 30, and Sophie Turner, 23, know how to complement each other’s style. They entertainers enjoyed an outing today in New York wearing chunky sneakers with insulated coats on a stroll. As we’ve seen from past street style and event photos, this couple has mastered the art of coordinating their outfits, down to their footwear choices.
Jonas sported a pair of black athletic shoes with fluorescent green side detailing and a lace-up front. The musician styled his sneakers with dark, loose-fitting jeans, a neutral-colored knit sweater, and a puffer jacket with knit detailing. He accessorized his ensemble with a pair of simple black shades and Dior saddlebag.
Turner wore a pair of gray-toned dad shoes with high white socks. She styled the shoes with loose-fitting dark pants, a high-neck sweater and a black Moncler puffer jacket. The actress accessorized the ensemble with a pair of square-framed sunglasses, a small Louis Vuitton handbag and a baby pink reusable water bottle.
The “Game of Thrones” star is known to transform conventionally “ugly” fashion trends and make them surprisingly chic. Recently, Turner has shown her ability to make nearly any shoe choice stylish and put-together looking, from wearing socks and sandals with denim cutoffs this summer to her styling a pair of Bermuda shorts with combat boots.
