Prada flame shoes a hit with stars

They're flamboyant, unique and eccentric; Prada’s Spring 2012 flame stilettos are fast becoming the talk of the town in celebrity circuits.

First Katy Perry created a stir by sporting a red and yellow version of the Flame sandals - worth around £820 - at the Miu Miu show at Paris Fashion Week.

Then this weekend, Black Eyed Peas' Fergie followed suit, flaunting a St. Patrick's Day-themed emerald green pair at a launch party in Beverly Hills.

"Happy St. Patrick’s Day lovers!!!!" the singer later tweeted.

Fantasy shoes are a big trend for this spring, with bold colours and cut-out embellishments competing for attention. But such a major style statement won't be to everyone's taste.
