Fashion Week trend alert: lug soles

The lug-soled look kicked off at Milan Fashion Week with Prada's collection, but several shows at Paris Fashion Week, which wrapped up this week, also rocked the trend. 

Here's how three designers employed the utility boot trend in their Fall-Winter 2013 shows.

Carven 

At Carven, Guillaume Henry showed lug-soled boots in a few variations to match the industrial meets pretty-in-pink vibe of his collection. Delicate ankle strap shoes with a chunky sole were also matched by patent shoes with more of a hiking boot feel, and the colors matched the clothes, along with a marbled inverted zebra print. Another variation came with a contrasted upper of satin, bandaging the foot.

Stella McCartney 

Stella's models tottered on super-chunky platform heels with a lug sole. The shoes came in black, white and beige faux leather finishes in two models, one with a zip up the back, the other a slip-on.

Miu Miu  

Miuccia Prada's lug-soled boots came either in all black or with a splash of color in the form of a bright faux-spats detail. Utility soles also appeared on thicker ankle strap heels worn with striped socks.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
