Valentino's Lace-Embroidered Peep-Toe Pump has been named the sexiest shoe of them all in a new poll.

It's amazing what a little leather and lace can do.

Just ask Valentino, which was announced as the 2011 winner of the Sexy Shoes contest from Saks Fifth Avenue and Footwear News thanks to its sultry little minx of a gray leather peep-toe heel featuring lace embroidery.

The hot heel faced some stiff competition from runners-up like a Swarovski crystal-studded strappy sandal from Jimmy Choo; knee-high platform boots from Prada; and suede, mesh, and stingray peep-toe ankle boots from Chrissie Morris.

More than 35,000 votes were cast online after FN narrowed the list down to 25 big-name finalists. But while Manolos may be the It shoe of the moment, voters just couldn't resist the power of the peep-toe. Can't say we blame them!
