Anna And Her Shoes

While perusing photos from London and New York Fashion Weeks, I couldn’t help but notice that Anna Wintour always seems to wear the same shoes.

Looking back, she has been gracing the front rows in, Manolo Blahnik’s nude kitten heel sandals for many years and they have become part of her signature style.

One can’t help but wonder why the queen of the fashion world wouldn’t try something new? Surely the editor of Vogue can have her pick?

Well it seems the journalist behind this article has been wondering the same.

It appears that Manolo Blahnik has a mould of Anna’s fashionable foot and crafts her shoes to fit her perfectly, so her tootsies are always comfy. Also, Anna apparently argues that nude goes with everything.  And as the journalist points out, our favorite style duchess, Kate Middleton, is a big fan of a nude shoe, but seems to prefer a court style, especially L K Bennett’s Sledge shoes.

Who are we to argue with such fashion royalty?

What do you think? Would you wear the same style if you had the fashion world at your feet?

Have a wonderful week, fashion friends. Rebecca x

Kanye makes a follow-up appearance…with some famous friends in tow…

Hi Fashion Friends

A quick update on my latest indulgent celeb spotting in my NYC ‘hood.

So, it seems Kanye can’t keep away. I mentioned in a previous post that he, along with his beau, and mother of his week old baby, Kim Kardashian, were spotted in my street not so long ago.

houstonWell, a couple of Saturdays ago (sorry for the slightly tardy post, it has been a fashion filled few weeks!) the tuxedo’d hunk and I were walking home from a delicious super at Cocette in Soho. As we were approaching our street, I looked up and spotted Jay-Z getting out of a car. I have to admit I had indulged in a glass of vino with dinner so I snatched a double take just to be sure, but I knew my uber accurate celebrity radar hadn’t let me down.

The Empire State star was swiftly followed by a very petite Beyonce who looked stunning in a cool black and white striped skirt and top, displaying her very toned tum.

A small crowd quickly gathered as they hurried into a ‘too cool for school’ Jamaican restaurant on the corner of our street.

The next morning, still basking in my celeb spotting glory, I scoured the gossip pages for proof of the previous night’s events and quickly discovered that the popular couple were heading into Kanye’s birthday party. Check out Beyonce’s outfit here.

Seems the world famous gold digger rap star likes this neck of the woods. Perhaps it will be the last time for a while, what with nappy changing duty and all.

Keeping up with Anna and Kim

Rumour has it that reality show guru, Kim Kardashian, has never been invited to the pinnacle fashion event of the showbiz calender – the Met Ball in New York City.

And the person who allegedly blacklisted her? Vogue Editor and fashion industry consort, Anna Wintour.

Well, until Monday night’s annual event.

Kim was on the arm of her boyfriend, Kanye West, in an unpalatable floral number, reminiscent of my great aunt’s curtains. It has been reported that Kim was allowed to go this year’s fashion parade because her music mystro beau and fashion insider fav, Kanye, was performing.

Apart from my serious guilty pleasure for showbiz goss, you may wonder why I am interested in this chitchat?

It just so happens that I live across the road from Miss Wintour in New York and Kimye were spotted in our street on Sunday. A day before this year’s uber glam punk themed event. They were reportedly on their merry way to dinner at the Wintour residence. I wonder who was buttering up who?

Perhaps Kim should have asked the Vogue queen for advice on which outfit to wear…or perhaps she did…
