What: Christian Louboutin Daffodile Point-Toe Platform Pumps

Why it's hot: Christian Louboutin just keeps topping himself when it comes to noteworthy shoes that stand out in a crowd. Building on the success of last year's seen-everywhere 5" platform pump, this new shoe takes the trend a step further with a teetering 6" pencil-thin heel and a fresh point-toe. This is the shoe that every starlet will be wearing on the red carpet in the coming months.

What to wear it with: Unless you work in a very creative office -- fashion, PR, art, etc. -- or you own your own business, I'd keep this shoe away from the workplace. Although I've been known to sport a 5" heel in the workplace under special sartorial circumstances, even I'm going to admit that a 6" spike heel will be out of place in most work environments.

Now, that being said, there are still plenty of places where this amazing shoe will be welcome and celebrated. The Christian Louboutin Daffodile Pump is practically begging for a night out on the town -- pair it with cocktail dresses, pencil skirts, skinny pants or tuxedo trousers, just to name a few options. This shoe is also destined to be the It shoe for those occasions where your fashion sense is in the spotlight, such as gallery openings, trunk shows and charitable events planned by the local crew of ladies who lunch.

Loving the look, but feeling a little worried about how you'd keep this shoe on your foot? It's also being made in a Mary Jane -- exact same silhouette, but with a strap. The Christian Louboutin Lady Daf Platform Mary Jane Pumps are currently available for pre-order.
