As much as I love watching the Oscars, there really isn’t much for us at that posh Hollywood awards show in terms of boots. You can expect to see gorgeous shoes and even more gorgeous dresses, but boots as a celeb’s choice of footwear is probably the last thing you’d see at a glamorous event like the Oscars.
However, there WAS one solitary shining exception among the classic pump, strappy sandal and open-toe shoe styles that walked the red carpet that Sunday. Forever California girl Cameron Diaz shunned the traditional Oscars fashion fare and bravely attended the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in this leopard print mini dress and a pair of Jimmy Choo Glint satin ankle booties:

Cam D. is just killing me with those toned, mile-long legs of hers. And though I find her Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2011 leopard print dress a tad bit too short, it’s still refreshing to see a celebrity at an Oscars after party in an actual ready-to-party frock than in a dazzling yet dragging ball gown.
Cameron’s Jimmy Choo ankle booties also add just the right touch of “glam with an edge” to her look. Among all the celebrities at the Oscars and the Oscar after parties, Cameron Diaz was the only one who treaded into boot territory for her footwear choice that night.
As mentioned, Cameron Diaz’s shoes are the Jimmy Choo Glint satin ankle booties. You can get this suede version of it for $950.00 at Nordstrom:

For another option, this super similar Pour La Victoire Forsa suede peep toe bootie gives you the same look for much, much less:
