He doesn’t live in a house, he lives in a “shoe museum.”
Shiny (but not too shiny) new details about SJP’s impending shoe line.
15 years ago today, a tutu-clad Sarah Jessica Parker endured her first splash from a city bus, thus beginning her tenure as Carrie Bradshaw, she of the $40,000 worth of shoes and nowhere to live. Today, Parker is finally dipping her (very squashed) toe into the footwear business herself. And, naturally, she’s doing it with the help of Manolo Blahnik‘s longtime CEO.
J.Crew’s printed Manolo Blahnik pumps were easily the most talked about collaboration of New York Fashion Week, but at least one party had no idea it was even happening.
In totally mindblowing news, a drug smuggling ring was just busted for trafficking cocaine sculpted into Manolo Blahniks.
This was the week Kim Kardashian wedding details leaked, a lady had Damien Hirst tattoo her vagina, and the Muppets became super relevant. Also, Marc Jacobs might be headed to Dior, and Iris Apfel is getting the documentary treatment.
This year has seen two royal weddings, both with brides named Kate. (Sorry, Kim.) And because everyone had/has/will continue to have thoughts on both of the British nuptials, let’s hear what master cobbler Manolo Blahnik has to say about Kates Middleton and Moss.
Thanks to snapshot-happy Terry Richardson, we don’t have to wait until Vogue‘s September issue drops to see pictures of Kate Moss‘s epic wedding festivities. This may be the first and only time we ever say this: thanks, Terry!
Prince William and Kate Middleton officially departed for their Canadian tour this morning wearing a pair of matching suits. Okay, so they’re not identical, but they’re both navy! And though certainly classy, also kind of boring. More interesting, however, is the fact that Middleton appears to be following in Michelle Obama’s footsteps and paying sartorial homage to her country of destination.
While everyone has been talking about the dress (and, tangentially, the jewels) that Kate Middleton will wear when she walks down the aisle, we haven’t heard much about her shoes. We’re guessing that might be because they’ll be hidden underneath a waterfall of white silk or cream tulle or cloudy lace or something of that stripe. But that doesn’t make them any less important, so Regina Popp Smith, fashion editor at Footwear News, reached out to shoe designers to see what they’d make for the queen-to-be.
Andre Leon Talley might be the biggest walking iconoclast in the fashion industry — and not just because he’s really, really tall. Talley is one of the fashion industry’s most visible power players, has a wardrobe full of high-end designer labels and knows fashion like the back of his hand. He also lives in the suburbs, shops at Target and will help you pick out shoes if you happen to be next to him in a store.
We’d heard these things called Silly Bandz were all the rage, but until we stumbled upon US Magazine’s blurb on the growing craze of Silly Bandz among celebrities like alpha mom Sarah Jessica Parker — who wore a lime green one in the shape of who-knows-what — we had no idea how big they really were. And we’re all familiar with the domino effect that stems from a little bit of subliminal trend endorsements by celebrity moms.
Isabella Blow were the best of friends. She loved his creative designs and he loved her eccentric personality and corresponding style. The two were like brother and sister, and whispers that Blow’s suicide contributed to McQueen’s circulated early on after his death. Now, their names will once again be paired with one another in a Christie’s auction this September.
