It’s been almost 15 years since Sex and the City‘s Carrie Bradshaw made Jimmy Choo a household name, kicking off a glamorous international obsession with the luxe shoe label. And to celebrate this special anniversary, Jimmy Choo founder and chief creative officer Tamara Mellon is launching an updated collection of the brand’s signature jeweled heels, tapping famed photographer Marilyn Minter to create a striking ad campaign for the vintage-inspired shoes. “I wanted to create a modern glamour that stands for the style and imagination of Jimmy Choo,” said Mellon in a statement. “I was inspired by vintage jewelery to add sparkling and luminous details to iconic Jimmy Choo shapes. But these are not the jeweled shoes of the past and instead show jewels in a modern and edgy way,” Tamara said of the collection, which is the first of a series of new initiatives to be revealed throughout the year. And the high-fashion images speak for themselves. The crystal—adorned Marine leather shoe, pictured above and part of the 2011 cruise collection, is just one of the fabulous ways the brand is celebrating. Happy Birthday Jimmy Choo!

That black shoe is calling my name. I need to buy stock…a closet full of them….one of my guilty pleasures.
