Culpo, a brand ambassador to Nine West, shares that it “has always been a go-to shoe brand for me — the price is point is great and they’re always the first to have every single trend you could ever want. I love the shoe that I have on,” Culpo told PEOPLE at Nine West’s celebration for their 40th Anniversary Collection. “This kitten heel is amazing and also all of the styles are based on the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s – they’re throwback themed.” The “faith”, the style that she wore for the occasion, also comes in “an amazing brown” – along with red, black and white. “The shoe itself looks so high-end and on-trend and it’s an exact replica from a shoe of 1970s that they put out, so it really is like a super throwback.” she says.

When asked what other trend she’s really excited for this spring, Culpo told us that “the lilac/lavender hue is another color I have been seeing everywhere, on the runway and on the streets. It’s the perfect pop of color for springtime.” Culpo’s fave? “Nine West’s Gabelle strappy sandal is really fun and feminine.”
