Welcome to the new school of low-heeled heels. Here you'll find a slick range of sexy slingback kitten heels (in brocade finishes and floral prints), polished ankle-strap pumps with crystal embellishments, and classic nude iterations, too. The common denominator? Despite the "under three inches" rule, these shoes pack a just-as-cool punch. And if you're worried about not fully maximizing the leggy look (yes, we know a killer pair of sky-high stilettos does wonders for lengthening your frame), then have a little fun with it. Go for a thigh-skimming skirt instead. All the convincing you'll need to take the low-heel plunge — aside from the obvious comfort perk — is just a click, or 32, ahead.
Jaime King channeled her inner Lemon Breeland (her Hart of Dixie character) in a pastel-tinged Peter Som ensemble at a Rembrandt beauty event in Hollywood last night. She started off with a baby-blue bustier, which she tucked into a tweed pencil skirt, for a simultaneously sweet yet flirty pairing. She then added a light peach collarless coat, bow kitten heels, and a black bag. In the jewelry department, Jaime went with these Graziela rose pizza earrings ($3,900), this Melinda Maria pyramid bangle ($98), and a matching pyramid ring.

Holly was the ultimate glamorous girl-about-town, and she always dressed the part. Get her glam look with a long black sheath dress ($80), shiny kitten heels, and elbow-length gloves. Make the look modern with a crystal headband and sequin clutch — and don't forget the pearls.

We think Michelle Obama may have something to do with the resurgence of kitten heels. After all, they're her modus operandi and look amazing with almost every outfit. The best part? They're comfy as heck, so don't be afraid to walk the streets, shop 'til you drop, or even dance the night away in these small-heeled wonders. I would do unspeakable things for this Givenchy Studded Sandal ($878) . . .
