Jimmy Choo at the Academy Awards and Golden Globe Awards 2007

For almost a decade, the magnificent creations of Malaysian shoemaker to the stars Jimmy Choo have graced the feet of Hollywood celebrities at all sorts of functions, be it a movie premier or award shows.

At the recent Academy Awards or more famously known as Oscars to the entire world, the Tinseltown residents and celebrities from all over the world were glamorously dressed in couture gowns and complemented their look with a pair of Jimmy Choo.

Actress Helen Mirren who won the best actress for Best Female Actress for her role in The Queen, a film that revolves around the loyalty of Queen Elizabeth 2's subjects post late Princess Diana’s tragic death on August 1997, were seen walking the red carpet in the metallic gold Cosmo sandals.

Other celebs that were spotted in Jimmy Choos at the Oscars are ex-Spice Girls Victoria Beckham wearing the Mae sandals, actress Naomi Watts in Hepsie sandals, and The Memoirs of Geisha’s lead actress Zhang Ziyi in Clue.

A month earlier, singer/actress/fashion designer Jennifer Lopez were seen at the Golden Globes 2007 Awards in an Indian sari-inspired Marchesa dress and a pair of Texas sandals with liquid gold straps and metallic framed heels while fellow actress Jennifer Garner wore Gloria shoes.

For Spring/Summer 2007, Jimmy Choo has recommended top four accessories and shoes that you should have within your collection. They are Ramona pony skin handbag in Zebra stripe print, Troy woven leather clutch bag in gold, Kennedy sandals in patent leather and heels half-dipped in gold and Tiz cork-soled wedges with with metallic straps in silver or gold. But if you prefer to remain in classic chic, then opt for the metallic open toe Juliet sandal with 3.5" heels and crossover at toes and ties.

Feeling daring or bolder? The Garland sandals in printed silk satin or Tudor silk satin sandals with jeweled accessories are the best picks of the crop. Don't forget to complete your look with the variety of evening bags from the brand itself. Last year, Jimmy Choo opened its first boutique in Singapore at the Takashimaya Department Store at the famous Orchard Road while the first Malaysian boutique is scheduled to open this year at an undisclosed location.

Jimmy Choo's Spring/Summer and Cruise 2007 collection is available now at all Jimmy Choo boutiques, multi-brand boutiques and selected departmental stores globally.
