In case you needed proof that kitten heels are back, the shoe popularized by Audrey Hepburn and often worn by Michelle Obama is now being reinvented by fashion-forward and eco-conscious brand Everlane (the label with the denim waitlist and the chunky heels we can't stop buying).

Referred to as The Editor Heel, the suede shoe features a 2-inch heel and comes in four shades: black, taupe, navy and dark green. They are flying off the shelves and, according to Vogue, even Angelina Jolie herself was seen sporting a pair while walking her dog in LA last weekend.
