When it comes to the red carpet, there is probably no one as updated as Catherine Kallon of Red Carpet Fashion Awards.
She started the blog in 2007 when she realized how many red carpet looks were being credited incorrectly. Today, she is one of the most respected bloggers in the industry for her up-to-the-minute coverage (with precise designer credits, naturally) and honest commentary.
The Cannes Film Festival is now fully underway and in collaboration with us, Catherine is posting her favorite looks of the day with the shoes to match from shoescribe.com. Starting next Monday, she will also be our Guest Curator for the week, choosing five red carpet-worthy Stars for each day of the week and her picks for a Riviera vacation.
Check back on Red Carpet Fashion Awards for her daily shoescribe.com posts and read our interview with her below on her life from the shoe point of view.
