Every now and again, there’s a style starlet that comes along and fills everyone’s closet with the desire to be just a little better. Today, the apple of our shoe envy eyes, Angela Simmons, celebrates her 26th year of life, and what better way to ring it in than by toasting with some of her favorite things: SHOES!
Following a whirlwind successful year launching a multitude of business ventures, Angela kicked off her birthday week with a fashion show as a part of Con-air 360’s New York Fashion Week lineup, proving she is no longer the same “Daddy’s Little Girl,” she’s a budding entrepreneur who happens to have impeccable taste in shoes.
Now that the big day is here, the best way to celebrate is by taking the time to bask in 26 of Angela’s best shoe moments, as told by everything from Instagrams to red carpets.
Let’s kick off the countdown with these yellow platforms front row at Vivienne Tam’s NYFW show:
