Shoe Buzz: Random little bits of shoe news, just for fun
I don’t know if you catched the Real Housewives of Atlanta tonight but, I have to say, super-fab Dwight was insanely hilarious and fierce wearing heels and running around in them for NeNe’s “Heel the Soul” event, which benefits NeNe’s charity for women in abusive relationships. Dwight went all out for this event and looked like a graceful gazelle taking off from the finish line! Honestly, he did better in those ankle boots than I could have done, I’m quite sure, and this is from a man who claims to have only worn heels twice. I haven’t actually tried running in heels, but just walking in them can be quite a challenge, so kudos to him. Dwight and NeNe are both so out there, particularly together, so they crack me up. I was also so surprised to hear this evening about the passing of Kandi’s fiance, AJ. I find Kandi amazingly talented and so real and my heart goes out to her.
In other shoe news, I heard today on The Cut that Dina Lohan (mom of Lindsay Lohan, in case you weren’t aware) is planning to launch a shoe line called Shoe-han, which will be sold on Love My Shoes. Ok, this should be interesting. Would you buy shoes from this woman? I mean, it’s hard enough for a bonafide celeb to start a shoe line successfully, but I’m having trouble imagining things working out for Dina in this particular realm. We’ll have to see what she comes up with…maybe shoes for the ageing party gal?
Alexander McQueen showed his new spring 2010 shoes on the runway in Paris and, I have to say, I just can’t stop looking at these shoes (seen here on Shoe Blog). Totally unwearable in real life, but absolutely mesmerizing. I mean, they look like a cross between some crazy-valuable vase and some exotic wild creature you just discovered out in the wild. In-SANE!
