25 Most Stylish New Yorkers: Brian Atwood
Name: Brian Atwood
Occupation: Shoe designer
Fancy footwork: Atwood, whose insanely sexy, leg-lengthening stilettos the serious shoe-styling celebs -- J.Lo! Madonna! Kate Hudson! -- can't seem to walk a carpet without, describes his own style from the ground up: "There's always a sporty side, because I do love my Stan Smiths. But then I love my crocodile loafers, too."
The shopping circuit: "Besides Tom Ford -- I always go to Tom Ford -- I also love going down to Uniqlo on Broadway, because they have really great basic pieces," says the designer, who will launch the B Brian Atwood line for Fall 2011, priced from $100 to $350.
Style advice: "Every man needs a great jacket, to wear with jeans or the complete suit." And, adds the Adonis of fabulous footwear, "Take care of your shoes, always."
"I have a private training gym. I do boot camp. It kicks your butt every time! Even after the Boom Boom Room, I'm there at 9:00 in the morning. You do the crime, you do the time!"
