Huh. We didn't think it was possible to improve on a shoe worth $1 million, but Stuart Weitzman has proved us wrong.

It's been 10 years since actress Laura Harring hit the 2002 Oscars red carpet in his Million-Dollar Shoe sprinkled with 464 diamonds, and the footwear designer is celebrating the anniversary by creating a new version.

Modeled by a white underwear-clad Natalia Vodianova in Weitzman's black and white ad campaign lensed by Mario Testino, the 2012 update—dubbed the Millionairess—boasts straps studded with Swarovski crystals and an elegant tear-drop diamond.

Even more appealing is the fact that one needn't be a Facebook stockholder to buy a pair. The shoe is retailing for $595 at Stuart Weitzman boutiques beginning in February.

Watch out for puddles!
