High heel-a-thon NYC and boots

26 Sep

Let me start with this: the high heel-a-thon is – as far as I know – a charity event and is basically all about having fun and breaking your ankle. Of course, the podium finishers get great prizes, like a new VW Jetta+$10.000 for the winner, $5000 for the runner-up and $2500 for the lady who finishes third.

This years event has been held on the 22nd September, hosted by Kelly Ripa, as usual. This time, also Kristin Chenoweth and AnnaLynne McCord were there, just like Johnny Weir, who participated in the men’s heat (!). 150 yards of fun ๐Ÿ˜€

Let’s say what some of the participants tweeted about this event:

  • Tomorrow I’m on regis/kelly. Then kelly and I and annalynne do a high heel race. I’m scared.
  • Did high heel (hell) run with Ripa. She is awesome. I came in 190th. Out 500 I think. CERAMI GIRLS saved me
  • Cerami Grils thank you! We were a great team and u held me UP in my Louboutins!
  • I came in last of the celebs! At least I won something! LAST! Hahahahha
  • all I saw was Kelly Ripa’s butt! She is FASt!
  • so glad I didn’t break my neck.

Johnny Weir had the following to say about it:

  • I didn’t win the heel-a-thon but I tried my best! So proud that so many came out to run and support a great cause!
  • I looked pretty! I so can’t run in five inch Louboutins. But my calves looked stellar while trotting! Xoxo

About the host, Kelly Ripa:

โ€œIโ€™m going to treat this like any sale at Barneys,โ€ Ripa, who wore 3-inch, T-strap LaDuca dance shoes, joked before the race. โ€œIโ€™ve never worn a heel less than 6 inches [high, so] essentially, Iโ€™m running in a sneaker.โ€

A video about the race:

A similar event has been held in Leeds, UK, today, but that was a 1.5 mile route! If you’re interested, you can read more about that here.

So much about this topic, now I have a few collages about boots for you. These kind of boots have been worn by celebrities in September so far – there are a few ugly ones but thanks Lord nobody wore the Yeti-boots by Chanel so far ๐Ÿ˜€

Meanwhile, in Germany at Fashion’s Night Out in Berlin (top row):

I hope you’ve had a nice weekend, see you tomorrow!

New York Fashion Week – we all attended!

17 Sep

New York Fashion Week is over, London Fashion Week has already started.

Let’s take a look at famous ladies who attended various shows in the Big Apple.

(The Romantics After Party is not strictly FW related)

(Sorry NickY)

Which show did you enjoy the most?

The next post show appear on Sunday, but this weekend will be crazy for, I’m not sure if I’ll have the time to post. Until then, goodbye! ๐Ÿ™‚

Fashion’s Night Out; NYFW begins!

9 Sep

After all the long days of waiting, finally it has begun. One of the most anticipated events of the year, the New York Fashion Week has begun, and thanks to online streams, even I, living thousands of kilometers away from NYC, can enjoy most of the shows live.

I can’t chat neither with Anna Wintour nor with Emmanuelle Alt while sitting in the front row, but thanks to Twitter I can chat with many fashion lovers. However, I wouldn’t say “no” next year if I happened to be invited to one or two shows ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s start with the pictures, shall we?

A few days before NYFW’s kick-off, Fashion’s Night Out was the event to attend (for example both in NY and in London). The following pictures are from the location in New York:

(Anna W can’t get rid of these shoes despite her toes don’t fitting in.)

Blake Lively wore Christian Louboutin heels.

Ashley Tisdale gets invited to a fashion event. Okay, I shut up.

Part of my daily dose of models:

Oh dear Lord, how did you create her? You’ve done an awesome job!

She wore Louboutin heels, of course.

My other favorite of the night, Ms Blair…

…who happened to wearย – guess what – Christian Louboutin.

One of the first shows of NYFW was streamed, it was the one by Christian Siriano. I had pretty high expectations regarding the shoes, mainly because he has amazed us previously with many marvelous creations. He did not disappoint me – and though I don’t know much about dresses (I can decide whether I like it or not, nothing else), I have to say I like what I saw.

What have I seen? Luckily for you, I have a few pictures from the show ๐Ÿ˜‰

That’s all for now! My weekend is pretty much full of programs, I’m not sure when I can post again but I’ll do my best.

I don’t know if it’s appropriate to say Happy Fashion Week! or not ๐Ÿ™‚

PS.: As there won’t be many more votes about the question whether it’s okay to wear boots in summer or not, I tell you that the results so far are 53% yes and 47% no. Looks like my readers are basically undecided on this topic! I didn’t expect the results to be so close! Now we know: you can’t go wrong with boots in summer! ๐Ÿ˜€
