Patricia Field for Payless shoes on the Oscars 07 Red Carpet

Is it a shock when it’s the stylist who put Sex and the City’s fashion on the map, as well as styling that fashion movie of 2006 – The Devil Wears Prada.

Well for Oscats red carpet walk, Patricia Field paired Payless shoes she personally designed with a red strapless silk gown adorned with Swarovski crystals and beads by David Dalrymple. The Patricia Field for Payless shoes shoes were platform heel with an ankle strap featuring an edgy mix of metallic and colored snake skin.

Oh right, did I forget to mention the Payless shoes were designed by Patricia and will be available to the general public as part of her capsule collection for Payless shoes?

Well they are – and they’re due in US stores for the 2007 holiday season with handbags also to be included. Prices are due to be $45 and under.

“I am really excited about what Payless is doing to make fashion more democratic and accessible by creating the latest on-trend shoes and offering them at a great price,” said Field. “I jumped at the chance to design my shoes for the Oscars, and to bring women nationwide my personal style through my forthcoming Red Carpet Collection expected at Payless for the 2007 holiday season.”

The Payless and Field partnership had been in the works for a while with the Oscar nominated stylist styling Payless TV and print ads for almost a year and a half.

– I wonder if the shoes will be available at Australian Payless stores…
