Katy Perry, young American singer at the top of the charts around the world, was first seen in the classic black leather version with its red lipstick heel during the promotions tour of award-winning album "Teenage Dream". She was recently seen, however, in Paris with a new variation, the ankle strap d'orsay sandal in pale pink patent leather with the lipstick heel in tone, while shopping at Colette, the celebrated Paris concept store, and go-karting with friends Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

The Lipstick Heel, symbol of unconventional femininity and already celebrated by fashion publications worldwide, has expanded its collection, with 5 different lipstick colours. The Spring Summer 2012 Lipstick Heel collection, just added to the Alberto Guardiani Web Store, offers 3 different styles, from a sensual sandal to a classic pump to this season's crown jewel, literally.

The NEW PUMP IN BLACK MESH offers the change-ability of the lipstick colours, exquisitely decorating the heel with baguette-cut SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS. The Alberto Guardiani Web Store also offers an online tutorial video for changing the shoe's heel.

Alberto Guardiani has also recently hosted CINDERTHRILLER, the international shoe design contest, in collaboration with i-D Magazine. The competition concluded during Milan Fashion Week to find the new "IT-SHOE," coined The Flutterby Shoe, capable of reaching the same iconic status as the Lipstick Heel. The Flutterby Shoe will be available for sale as part of the Fall Winter 2012-13 collection in Alberto Guardiani boutiques worldwide and in famed concept stores 10 Corso Como in Milan and Colette in Paris.

A leading Italian men's and women's luxury shoe brand, Alberto Guardiani is based in Marche, Italy. The designer footwear, known for hand-craftsmanship and iconic, personalised style in both its men's and women's collections, are a recognized expression of Italian excellence. The brand enjoys a strong position in the Italian market and is witnessing considerable international growth supported by the Alberto Guardiani online store, an increasing network of direct retail outlets and a global wholesale network.
