One is famous for designing clothes, one is famous for the chic, ethical choices she makes in clothes (oh yeah, and being an A-list actress); but both Diane von Furstenberg and Natalie Portman are trying their hands for the first time at creating full lines of shoes for spring.

First up, on the left, is Diane von Furstenberg’s gold Provence heel. The wide, ribbon-like straps are one of my favorite things on evening shoes right now. They seem to take strappy heels to a more modern place.
