This hot pink pair is a perfect example of that! "The black crystals across the front are like three bracelets laying across your toe," Shawna says. "If you have a black-tie event and all you have is a black dress, then you've got all your accessories in one place."
Oprah says she has a place for this shoe, but it's not on her feet. "I would take that shoe out of the box, and I would just sort of have it on the counter," she says. "I'm not kidding, y'all. I would put it on the shelf like a piece of sculpture to look at."
Shawna says these shoes accentuate the sexiness of the arch of the foot—one of Christian's favorite parts of the foot—but they're also made for a twirl around the dance floor. "The T-strap keeps your foot in place," she says.
But true beauty might come at a price—Oprah calls these "Hurt me, Mama!" shoes. "You look pretty when you first walk in the room, then go sit down. That's what you need to do," Oprah jokes. "Because you're not standing long."
In fact, that's exactly what inspired Christian to create these shoes. "Christian likes to play with iconic images. Every little girl going into womanhood dreams of the Cinderella shoe and the ruby slipper, and that's the personification of that," Shawna says.
Oprah says this is a shoe that can go with anything. "I've worn it with jeans on this show, and I've also worn it out with evening wear. It's fantastic," she says.
"[The shoe also says] 'Look at me from behind,'" Shawna says, "which is what Christian thinks about very much."
