Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, and More Love Wearing Glitter Shoes

Originated by Dorothy Gale in The Wizard of Oz, glitter is the one thing no true shoe fanatic can resist. It is an especially popular style with pop-stars like Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, and Taylor Swift, who wore a pair of silver oxfords for the majority of her Red tour and even designed a similar style in collaboration with Ked’s. However, in recent years, glitter has gotten a cooler, much more polished look, thanks in large part to Miu Miu, who sent out a variety of candy-colored, open-toed booties covered in silver and gold glitter for their Fall 2011 collection, and Saint Laurent, who debuted the perfect sparkle Chelsea boot under the creative lead of Hedi Slimane. This season, glitter is back again in a big way, popping up everywhere from Chanel to Sonia Rykiel. Here, a look back at celebrities in glitter shoes just before the trend explodes again.
