Margot Silk ForrestAccording to the industry publication Footwear NewsOprah Winfrey shucked her black peep-toe Christian Louboutin heels Monday night after attending a benefit in NYC for the Robin Hood Foundation. In the car on the way back to her hotel, she slipped into a pair of beige suede moccasins. Press photographers caught her mid-moccasin (click the Oprah link above to see them), and I have to say, they weren’t the most flattering shoes she’s ever worn….

Mocs needn’t be so bland, though. Take a look at some of ours!

To read how I created these, go take a look at Glittered Moccasins: Liberace Meets Pocahontas. These would have looked great with the dress Oprah was wearing Monday night.
