Celebs Can’t Stop Wearing These Stuart Weitzman Strappy Heels

As ardent fashionistas, we believe a trend isn’t a trend until it’s spotted on (at least) three celebs. And, if PureWow’s Rule of Three is to be followed, then the new Stuart Weitzman Merinda heels ($395) certainly qualify as being a trend themselves. Spotted on everyone from Kylie Jenner to model Irina Shayk, these strappy sandals have been popping up everywhere. Here, we break down the trend from where it began to who wore it most recently.

Olivia Culpo On May 23

The 27-year-old fashion influencer and former Miss Universe was an early adopter of the Merinda heel. She attended the amfAR Cannes Gala 2019 at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d'Antibes, France, dressed in an ethereal silver Ermanno Scervino sheer-bottom gown, a sleek bun and the silver version of the Stuart Weitzman sandals earlier this year.

Irina Shayk On September 6

The 33-year-old model looked chic as can be while arriving at the Harper’s BazaarCelebrates “ICONS by Carine Roitfeld” event presented by Cartier at the Plaza Hotel in New York. She paired the sassy black heels with a black velvet H&M Conscious collection top and skirt, a side-parted low bun and a red and black handbag.

Kylie Jenner On September 30

The 22-year-old cosmetics mogul hit up Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin Bieber’s South Carolina Wedding in a Beauty and the Beast–esque gold lamé gown from Australian designer J’Aton Couture. Jenner accessorized with Goshwara jewels, a butterfly shaped Judith Leiber crystal encrusted bag and gold Merinda shoes.

It may be fall, but the strappy heel is still so in.
