Style mavens Nicole Richie, Kristin Cavallari and Katrina Bowden dish on their shoe closets and favorite fall trends at the QVC and Fashion Footwear Association of New York event in New York City.

The super hot starlets took over the red carpet at the QVC presents "FFANY Shoes on Sale” soiree, which sells designer shoes at half the manufacturer's suggested retail price to benefit breast cancer research and education.

“This is a great cause, and I was introduced to it last year,” said Richie. “The work and research they do is really important.” Over the last 19 years, this program has sold over one million pairs of shoes — which is essentially the number of heels Richie, Cavallari and Bowden collectively store in their closets.

Check out what these fashionistas told us about their shoe obsessions.

Nicole Richie

The designer and mother of two looked radiant in a red laser-cut gown, House of Harlow 1960 jewelry and black pumps, but who actually has the most pairs of shoes in her household? “My dogs,” she said.

Her favorite fall shoe trends?

“I don’t really focus on trends, but I love a great high boot for fall,” said Richie.

Kristin Cavallari

Cavallari rocked the red carpet in sky-high black heels. “This is the first night I’ve worn big heels like this,” Cavallari said after giving birth to her son last August. “My feet hurt!” 

With her new shoe collaboration with Chinese Laundry launching this January, the former Hills star is ready to get back into her five-inch heels. What inspired her new shoe line? “I did what I like and what I like to wear, plus it’s affordable, which I thought was important for girls,” she said.

Katrina Bowden

Known for her role as Cerie on 30 Rock, Bowden knows a thing or two about making a comedic statement. What’s her biggest (and funniest) shoe disaster? “I just got this pair of gold Prada shoes, and I was stepping out of a cab, and my heel went through one of those grates, and it completely tore up the back of the heel,” Bowden said. “Thankfully they were able to be repaired, but I was like, I just bought these!”

Don’t forget to watch “FFANY Shoes on Sale” on QVC Wednesday, Oct. 24 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. EST.
