For years when you thought of celebrities and high heel shoes there was one brand that immediately came to mind - Christian Louboutin and his infamous royal red sole. His shoes were always worn on the red carpet without fail.

That said, it looks like Christian Louboutin has involuntarily taken a step back because this season, and in particular in the week that Cannes kicks off, another shoe brand has taken limelight.

With a shoe height measuring 4.5 inches, a stick skinny heel and two thin straps,
the Jimmy Choo ‘Minny’ has taken centre stage. It’s a “barely there” type of shoe rather than a kick ass kind of stiletto – probably better described as a sandal.

As Cannes starts this week this new shoe on the block is a top contender to become the shoe of the red carpet this year.

Just about seen below the long gowns on the red carpet at the Golden Globes and the Oscars, this shoe is the most popular design worn by celebrities from Jimmy Choo’s range.

Take the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Charlize Theron and Lily James as just some of the celebrities who have worn the Minny several times!

This is the type of heel that will look classic and timeless for years to come. However if your thinking to get your hands on a pair then think again as the Minny is exclusively made for the red carpet only!

Jimmy Choo does make a version for the likes of the rest of us - the Daisy, priced at £695 and available from July 2015.
