Celebrity stylist Dani Michelle is a pro at creating head-turning looks in SW shoes.

Day to day, she works with some of the chicest names in Hollywood, from Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian to Shanina Shaik, perfecting each of their ensembles down to the details. So, when it came time to style herself for her own big moment — her June nuptials to fashion photographer Ian Morrison at Casa del Mar in Santa Monica, California — she created a dreamy bridal universe all her own.

“I wanted to be incredibly classic, but keep fashion as present as possible,” she tells SW SPOTLIGHT. And, because one gown simply was not sufficient for this fashion obsessive, she chose four different dresses for the occasion. “I kept saying I wanted to be a cool bride and that is why my dresses had classic elements, yet were totally unique.”

For her bridal shoes, she turned to SW. “Stuart Weitzman has been a staple in my life even before I was a stylist,” she says. “It really wasn’t even a question. Whether a red carpet or wedding aisle, I've always looked to them for any occasion.” After a visit to our New York showroom, she decided to choose two looks for her bridal experience.

First, she slipped into the kitten-heel LULAH mule, which she wore during her pre-wedding photoshoot for Vogue. Then, for her big day, she customised a version of the classic ANNY pump to feature a lattice-like design on our signature V-cut vamp. “I loved our custom shoe so much, it was classic yet interesting,” she says. “I was so pleased with the shape, the woven fabric and the sizing. Never once did my feet hurt.”

Today, as a newlywed, Michelle is blissed out — and back to work. But her wedding day remains one of her favourite experiences of her lifetime. “I remember most walking down the aisle in shock, full of excitement and awe,” she says. “I wish I could do it all over again every day. The night was the best of my life, and I'll cherish every detail forever.”
