Top 10 Shoes at the Oscars

There were plenty of great footwear moments during Hollywood’s biggest night.

The 84th annual Academy Awards, held Sunday night, brought out the biggest names in Hollywood — and designer footwear.

Brian Atwood, Jimmy Choo and Salvatore Ferragamo had major moments beneath the hems of Oscar’s elite, as did Christian Louboutin and Stuart Weitzman.  

Top looks ran the gamut from Melissa McCarthy’s custom Swarovski crystal peep-toes by Brian Atwood (complete with a personalized message on the soles from her longtime friend) to Angelina Jolie’s simple Salvatore Ferragamo pumps, all perfectly complementing glittery gowns, super slits and chic columns.

And McCarthy’s footwear was even front and center during a backstage skit with host Billy Crystal, when the actress reenacted her famous airplane scene from “Bridesmaids” by seducing Crystal and giving viewers a perfect view of the Atwood pumps.

Here, FN ranks the top 10 shoe styles from Hollywood’s biggest night of the year.
