GUCCI 'Sevigny' Ankle Strap Sandal Ad


We were all of us a-dither over this Gucci toggle-strap sandal after the Spring 2008 Shoe Trends post. Of course when I saw the ad on the back cover of Harper's Bazaar, I had to post it to share with you. What I love particularly about this ad is that here she is, a pretty girl in a girly pink dress, but she's got on these domina spikes, she's perched on a rooftop, and the shadows on her face and her scowl turn her from a fairy princess to a gargoyle on a Paris rooftop. It's brilliant art direction!

The Gucci "Sevigny" sandal is available for pre-order through Gucci.com, Saks, and Neiman Marcus.

I love the shoes although the ad makes me wonder if she's not wearing a shoe on the other foot, because I certainly wouldn't be able to balance that well.
