Who Wore it Better? Brandy vs. Jennifer Hudson in YSL Red Suede Cap Toe Tribtoo Pumps

We’re only a few weeks into 2012 and it seems we already have a new ‘it’ shoe!
Jennifer Hudson recently made an appearance at Barnes & Noble wearing the same $839 YSL Red Sued Cap Toe Tribtoo Pumps Brandy wore for an appearance on the Wendy Williams show:

While JHud went the safe route, wearing the striking heels with a long sleeved black dress, Brandy opted for sass, rocking the pumps as an exclamation point to a Stella & jamie tweed short suit. I must admit, in the real world, I’d probably go for Jennifer’s simple yet classy style, though Brandy really makes the shoes shine thanks to her long legs and chic contrasting colors.

Fun fact: These shoes have a hotly controversial red sole. Christian Louboutin would not be happy…
At any rate, who do you think wore it better? Which look would you wear?


I still haven’t found an ‘acceptable’ dupe of the shoes for you guys. Until I do, get the real deal at www.mytheresa.com.
