If you're a fan of footwear by Manolo Blahnik (and really, who isn't?), then you'll definitely be a fan of the Rachel Roy shoe collection. The fashion designer is launching her own line of covetable footwear, which offers a mix of polished ladylike pumps and chic stiletto booties in snakeskin, wool and suede, and features colors and prints ranging from cherry red and electric blue to polka dots and gingham.

Roy, whose mentor is Manolo Blahnik himself, has designed a shoe collection that she describes is for women who desire "strong and sexy" shoes. Says Roy, "My collection is just that — strong and sexy. It represents the woman I want to be." And with the line ranging in price from $195 for flats to $600 for boots, the Rachel Roy shoe collection represents the woman I want to be as well.
