There’s no doubt about it, Kendall Jenner is rising to the top so fast that she has actually made other models that have been in the business much longer than her envious. You could say the leggy brunette took a short-cut route to fame, all thanks to Kim, Kanye, and a reality TV show.

Thankfully, close pal Gigi Hadid, who has also been modeling since she was five, doesn’t harbor any ill-feelings about Kendall’s recent accomplishments. Take note, Kendall just landed a contract with Estee Lauder — something a LOT of her peers would kill to have if they could.

On Thursday, however, the tables were turned and Gigi somehow managed to upstage Kendall at a party held in Los Angeles. For the evening, the Sports Illustrated model rocked a simple but sexy ensemble consisting of a crop-top and a leather skirt detailed with a thigh-high slight. What made Gigi’s outfit standout, however, were the fierce strappy booties she used to go with the look.

I agree, Kendall looks elegant and classy, but in terms of footwear, I prefer Gigi’s choice. They’re simply showstopping. Would you agree?

If you’re thinking the booties look familiar, that’s because you’ve seen them here on the blog before — specifically on Jennifer Lopez. They’re called the Mrs. Bouglione cutout booties. They’re crafted from suede material and detailed with lattice-like cutouts all over. These shoes also feature 4.5-inch-tall heels so they’re quite steep:

You can find the Mrs. Bouglione online if you wish to own a pair. They retail at $1595. Also, below are shoes that may interest you if you fancy cutouts. Sure, these don’t look anything like Gigi’s Louboutins, but their silhouettes are quite unique:
