Nicole Scherzinger has a fascination with booties. I think so, yes. We’ve seen her in so many pairs that you begin to lose count. She likes changing them up too.

During her album signing in London on Monday, the Pussycat Dolls vocalist wore a pair of red pointy studded booties with her sexy black-and-white skirtsuit. The shoes were very striking; kind of like a neon sign that you can’t help but notice. Only, hers were pointed to the hilt, and I felt like they didn’t suit the outfit too.

What do you think of the mix Nicole put together, hit or miss? Hot or not?

I say not. The boots are gorgeous, but probably with black pants and a white top — something simple, considering the pair is statement making. After the event, Nicole went out for dinner with her man, Lewis Hamilton. The stunning brunette wore the same outfit, but thankfully switched her booties to a more subdued pair, which I found more appropriate:

I don’t know where Nicole got her black booties, but the red ones are from Christian Louboutin. They’re called the “Snakilta”, a pair crafted from classic or patent leather and decorated with spikes all over. These shoes also feature heels that are a towering 5 inches tall. That basically means you have to be well-heeled to manage the pair.

If you like what you see, the Snakilta can be purchased online via Net-A-Porter. I have to warn you, though, they retail at a hefty $1975. For the gals on a budget, my recommendations are these studded red and black boots from London Trash and Boutique 9:
