Describe your styling philosophy in one word.
We loved seeing Dakota Johnson in the Madonna for the Today Show! What was the inspiration for that look?
We loved that that look felt business-y but also summery, fun and sexy. The shoes had the same vibe.
What's your current favorite Larroudé shoe? How would you style it on a client?
I love the one that Dakota wore — the color and shape feel just right.
What's one footwear styling tip you think everyone should know?
Make sure you can walk in them! Nothing kills a look more than a hobbling walk. Shoes should make you feel good!
