Usually, celebrities sport classic pumps or comfortable high-heeled sandals on the red carpet. But sometimes, actresses and singers decide to add some variety to their look and choose extravagant shoes with unusual heels. And some, like Lucy Liu, even challenge gravity.

At Enlighten, we decided to take a look at the extravagant shoes celebrities have worn to social events.

It seems like children aren’t the only ones that love the yellow minions from Despicable Me. Sandra Bullock came to the animated movie’s premiere wearing bright custom-made minion pumps.

But she didn’t come to the premier just to show off her new shoes. Bullock conducted a charity auction and sold 10 autographed pairs. She managed to bring in a total of $84,850.

Shoe designer Christian Louboutin created shoes that were inspired by Jolie’s character in Maleficent. The heels were made in the shape of the fairy’s horns. The actress sported these shoes at a photo session in London.

In 2013, the French actress posed for photographers wearing Christian Dior’s shoes. At first glance, it seems like there’s nothing unusual about this elegant footwear. But pay attention to the curved heels. We hope that the actress felt comfortable walking on the red carpet in these.
