Extra, extra! The shoe that seems to be in the most demand around these parts is this "replication" of a $2000 sold out shoe by Balmain. We have seen the original Balmain beauty rocked by Rihanna, Jennifer Connelly and Audrina Patridge (hey, how did she get a pair?). Then Zara designed this $168.00 shoe for all of us who can't even fathom spending more than $600 for a summer stiletto. Unfortunately they disappeared as quickly as the originals when they were all recalled back to Spain. That means a lot of broken hearts left on this side of the pond.

See more shoes Hollywood is lusting after.

On eBay, fashionistas are losing their s--t over this multi-diamante, studded and pearled sexy rock and roll/good girl gone bad shoe. I have to say I love the Zara version better because the pitch of the shoe and the heel is a little taller. They removed the thong at the toe and went a little sequin happy but who doesn't love that? Just beware: if Solange or Mariah get their diva feet in these shoes, obsession over!
