Major congratulations are in order for footwear designer Nicholas Kirkwood. On Tuesday, Kirkwood took home the fourth annual British Fashion Council/ Vogue Designer Fashion Fund prize, beating out other talented nominees like Roksanda Ilincic, Mary Katrantzou, and Peter Pilotto as the first accessories designer to nab the honors — and it's well-deserved. Since launching his eponymous shoe label in 2005, you're most likely to spot Kirkwood's heels on the red carpet. The celebrity style set is perhaps the most obvious indicator of his fashion influence, with trendsetters like Diane Kruger, Alexa Chung, Miranda Kerr, and many, many more slipping into his whimsical, ultrasexy footwear for press appearances, premieres, and parties. We couldn't think of a better tribute to the designer than a look back at the A-list clients who've helped make his footwear so famous.
