Stylist extraordinaire and fab momma June Ambrose is trying her hand at everything these days. Outside of styling folks like Jay-Z and Mary J Blige, Ambrose had her Vh1 show, Styled By June (it hasn’t been renewed though), and now she’s getting her designer on. Teaming up with Home Shopping Network, Ambrose is trying to bring couture looks to the masses, and for some reasonable prices–$59-$119. The theme of the shoe styles is “In The Wild,” and the shoes are named after some of her favorite fashion icons, including the rock candy adorned sandal, the Diana (for Ross), the Tina (for Turner) and the Onassis (for Jackie O). In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Ambrose explained that the women she chose to name shoes after and design in a way that is similar to their fashion sense all broke style rules, and that’s what she’s all about. But the shoes are for everyday women just finding their niche and their style. “I want to get to that girl starting her career for the first time who wants to feel confident and make a statement without making a spectacle of herself.” She also wants the shoes to be comfortable, comfort being something that a lot of high- end shoes she buys can’t offer, so certain shoes are made with back zippers for easier entry, cushioning at the ball of the foot and more. If you’re feeling them, the shoes will be available starting March 22 on HSN and HSN.com.
So what do you think? Ambrose’s line has a few that are hot stuff indeed, like the sandal with the leopard heel in the above picture and the “Josephine” (Baker), which is the raffia wedge heel below. Most of her wedge looks are a win, while some other styles are a little too much for me, but I’m not going to knock June’s huge opportunity because she’s doing very big things. Let us know if you would pick up any of this eye candy when they drop next month!
