Joss Stone Trades Her Flip-Flops For Nine West Heels

At a slim five feet ten inches, British soul singer Joss Stone could easily pass for a model, but her laid-back attitude and easy approach to style reveal her to be anything but. “Whether or not something is in or out of fashion, I don’t care,” the leggy songstress said at an event in N.Y.C. last night, where she unveiled her Nine West Fall 2010 Vintage America shoe collection, set to launch exclusively in August at Nine West stores worldwide. While Joss cited Gwen Stefani as an occasional source of style inspiration, her fashion mantra is simple: “Wear whatever feels good to you at the time.” And for Joss–who teamed with Nine West to bring her bohemian-chic sensibility to its limited-edition shoe line, even incorporating her own tattoos into designs–this usually includes anything but high-heels. “I love heels, but I usually wear flip-flops because I’m kind of tall. You can’t look sexy if you look like you are going to fall over,” quipped Stone, who made exceptions for the height-boosting lace-up booties and heeled over-the-knee boots she conceived along with Nine West Creative Director Fred Allard. You can get a jump-start on nabbing Joss’s collection, priced from $70-$120, by pre-ordering your favorite styles beginning in late-July at ninewest.com/vintageamerica. –Gillian Koenig
