The spiked and studded shoe isn't necessarily the newest trend on the block, but it certainly has made its embellished presence known as of late. Taking a spin via Diane Kruger, Emma Stone, Marion Cotillard, and more, we've spotted Christian Louboutin's spiked Pigalle flats, as well as the designer's metallic spiked Bis Un Bout pumps, and a pair of sparkly Giuseppe Zanotti sandals to start. The tougher-looking silhouette isn't just a quick way to edge up an outfit; it's actually evolved into its own brand of ladylike style — with a "we mean business" undertone. Now, all you have to do is look to Ginnifer Goodwin's red scalloped Valentino dress and spiked red Christian Louboutin heels to know that this embellished shoe has certainly surpassed its initial bad-girl roots. To see how Jaime King, Rose Byrne, Olivia Palermo, and others are putting their own spin on the trend, keep clicking — then, shop your favorite spiked and studded iterations at the end of the slideshow.
