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?
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…
