Emily Blunt Hosts Holiday Shoe Launch Party


The holidays are approaching and what better way to ring in the New Year than with a sassy new pair of kicks? Credit celebrity stylist extraordinaire, Jessica Paster, who is launching her first holiday collection for the online shopping site, JustFab.com. ET caught up with Jessica at her launch party, which was hosted by Emily Blunt, to check out the collection.

"The Winter Collection" is a kaleidoscope of shoes and clutches in deep purples, hues of red and coral, and forest greens accented by leopard and lace patterns. In true holiday spirit, you'll also find a variety of gold, silver and black sparkle, satin straps, bejeweled bows and a clever mixture of textures to compliment any holiday look. "I think that designers are getting a little more crafty with their design," Jessica explained, which, in addition to "holiday" style, is part of the inspiration behind her frisky use of texture and color for this collection.

The hot item is the black velvet knee high "Angelina" boots. It being Jessica's favorite piece from the collection, she sure had no hesitation towards making sure it was the shoe to include. "I mean I fought for those boots to get them. We're selling them for $49.95, but I think they cost a lot more," Jessica giggled sheepishly. "I begged them to get it. They're actually our best sellers."

Emily Blunt, a longtime friend and client of Jessica's, hosted the launch party wearing a menswear inspired Tom Ford pant suit with the "Malika" shoe -- a fierce black satin peep toe pump embellished with a bejeweled bow. "What I love about [The Winter Collection] is that I think they represent her. Which is a person who generally likes to make people feel great, and beautiful, and elegant, and that's what the shoes represent," Emily explained. "They're really fun and flirty. There's a shoe for everyone, which I love."

Hilary Duff also came out to support Jessica's launch. "These shoes are great because they're all very sparkly so it adds a pop to your look, and I think that's really good," she said. Hilary and husband Mike Comrie are expecting a baby boy this winter and she feels lucky to still be wearing heels this far into her pregnancy: "My pregnancy has been super easy and my feet aren't swollen yet so I'm still rocking heels!" Hilary wore the silver "Carrigan" peep toe pump.

Jessica isn't just on the "cutting edge" of fashion, she is, in fact "cutting the edge" herself. Make sure to check out www.JustFab.com to find your perfect holiday shoe so you can start "cutting the edge" of fashion too!
