For Awards Season 2015 VIOLET GREY is documenting Hollywood’s red-carpet necessities. The industry’s leading stars and artists will be nominating who they deem the best in various categories, from dinner clutch touch-up essentials to the most coveted facialists in town, for the #VIOLETawards series. 

When attending a lavish soiree, one must always put their best foot forward. With that in mind, VIOLET GREY asked top Hollywood stylists like Karla Welch (who dresses Felicity Jones and Amy Poehler) and Erin Walsh (who counts Kerry Washington and Maggie Gyllenhaal as clients) to divulge the shoes they favor when shodding actresses for the red carpet. Their answers, below.
