Not everyone is blessed with supermodel genes, so with warmer weather springing up, we're looking for ways to lengthen our stems before slipping into our cute shorts and Summer dresses. Our secret weapon to instantly longer legs? Nude sandals — and this season, the virtual shelves are stocked with covetable styles to complete your ensembles. The key to maximum leg-lengthening appeal is making sure your ankle straps are always nude-hued; it's also amazing what a nude-hued pedicure can do (we love Essie's Sand Tropez option) for an even more seamless look. From white dresses to bright prints, nude sandals work with just about any outfit (the power of neutrals!), so needless to say, they're worth the investment. Big budget or small, we've got you covered — click on to see and shop our favorite nude sandals on the market right now!
Nars has partnered up with shoe designer Pierre Hardy to create a makeup collection inspired by his colorful Summer 2013 line. Sexy stilettos in punchy colors translate seamlessly to polish pairings and printed blush palettes, making this an ace collection for the season. The polishes are housed in a tiny shoebox with a dust bag, a nod to Hardy's footwear heritage, and the blushes are embossed with his iconic cubic print. You can nab the designer colors on May 1 at narscosmetics.com. Until then, get a glimpse of the collection when you click on.

Miranda Kerr was on mommy duty in NYC, but that didn't stop her from sporting sky-high heels. The model showed off these Pierre Hardy colorblock suede sandals ($745) with a black coat and her black leather Givenchy Antigona tote. We love that she kept the rest of her outfit dark to really allow her shoes to shine. Score Miranda's exact black and blue sandals to work with everything from pencil skirts to cropped trousers to skinny jeans.
At Carnegie Hall's 2012-2013 Season Opening Night Gala in NYC last night, Sarah Jessica Parker got an opportunity to show off her always fabulous style sense in a blue printed Oscar de la Renta maxi dress, Manolo Blahnik pumps, and Fallon jewels: this bib necklace ($265), this collar necklace ($375), and this crystal bracelet ($200). Her dress and baubles are not available to buy, but we can get our hands on SJP's Pierre Hardy mini snakeskin clutch ($990), which also comes with a detachable silver chain strap. Pair it with your fancy gowns like Sarah Jessica did or use it to amp up your t-shirt and jeans. It would also look amazing against an all-black look: turtleneck, pencil skirt, and pointy pumps.

Leelee Sobieski stepped out at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC donning a chic and edgy look — structured leather jacket, neutral basics, and colorblock Pierre Hardy wedges — we can't wait to re-create. Leelee's classic black-and-white ensemble was sleek on its own, but her piped trench-meets-leather jacket and tricolor wedges took it to new heights. From red-carpet galas to running errands around town, we are smitten with Leelee's fashion-forward style. Take a cue from this trendsetter and layer a unique leather topper over a white top and black skinny jeans, then complete the look with her exact wedges, which transition perfectly from sunny days to cooler nights.
