Hollywood's Favorite Shoemaker

10/11/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Fittingly for an evening honoring legendary shoe maker Salvatore Ferragamo, host Eva Mendes (middle) went feet first when it came to picking out her outfit. “I let the shoes dictate everything — they’re replicas of the shoes that Ferragamo made for Marilyn Monroe and Sofia Loren. They’re my favorite shoes ever!” Her Ferragamo royal blue satin dress and dramatic updo enhanced her classic Hollywood look. If only presenting the Ferragamo family with the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Award was as easy as picking her outfit! “I am a little bit nervous this evening because I respect this family so much,” she confessed on stage. Mendes wasn’t the only guest who went ultra-glam for the night: Ginnifer Goodwin (left) said of her beaded bubble skirt dress: “It was hard to get on, but once I did, it was worth it. It’s so comfortable!” Other gorgeous attendees in Ferragamo included Molly Sims (right), Kristin Davis, and Rose McGowan. But Goodwin summed up the spirit of the evening best, “We all worship Ferragamo. We’ve got a lot of old Hollywood tradition here!”

I like Molly’s look the best – in a word, Chic.

I don’t know about Eva’s outfit..its a little too bright for me. I like Molly Sim’s better. She looks so pretty.

I really like Molly Sims style the most, Eva Mendes style is just repulsive really(perhaps if it was a different color, like gold it would’ve been much more glamorous).

I agree that Molly Simms outfit is the best. The shoes on all three women are very nice though.
