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 😀

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:

“I’m going to treat this like any sale at Barneys,” Ripa, who wore 3-inch, T-strap LaDuca dance shoes, joked before the race. “I’ve never worn a heel less than 6 inches [high, so] essentially, I’m running in a sneaker.”

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 😀

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

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

Bye-bye boots, part 1

20 May

During the following weeks, I’m going to have a few posts dedicated to boots, in which I show many kinds of boots that have been worn this winter/spring. To kick off this series, in this post – mostly unidentified – boots worn back in January this year are on display.

What kind of boots did you wear? Anything close to these?

I have to say I’m not a big fan of the pink pair, but I do like the rest:

(How about Collien’s shirt? Cool right?)

Looking at this collage, you might think again “Okay, I’ve never heard of her!” 🙂

(Even Kanye West knows about Ms Debreczeni…)

Badass girls do it like Fiona and especially Kat von D:

You really thought Kim would be axed from a post?

If you didn’t know how to wear red boots…

(…you won’t see a good example here either, but basically I like the colors)

Sometimes Miley can mess up big time!

The last collage, with Malin showing how it’s done:

Too So many Germans, I know, I know – I just can’t ignore them!

A retrospection can’t be always inspirational, but I hope it confirms that you’ve made the right decision when you’ve bought new boots this winter. You did, right? 🙂

Zee Germans

13 Aug

After a couple of days of absence [there’s so much work and travelling to do these days :S ] I’m back again to make a mega-post again, with a subject that will surprise many of you.

Mainly, because I bet you don’t know the people you’ll see in a few moments 🙂 Since I live in Europe, the German influence is massive in many parts of our everyday life. However, in the case of the shoes, shoe design, it’s a bit different.

It looks like the most famous ladies in the country that gave us Karl Lagerfeld, Jil Sander, Hugo Boss and Escada wouldn’t care that much about high-fashion, especially not about shoes, unlike their colleagues do in France, Britain or even in Italy. Of course, you can see some well-known pair every now and then, but I wonder what the reason behind this phenomenon is.

Now I’m going to show you a lot of German – even if some names don’t sound sooo German – ladies: TV hosts, singers, actresses, models, athletes, society chicks (aka useless people), bands.

I’m really interested in your opinions! How do you like what you see? Did you know any of them?

I have some unposted pictures that might get too old  if I don’t do it now. I have no choice but to post them right now:)

Let’s start with “Mom”:

Next, ther was the newcomer of 2008:

Back in April, one could see Mena Suvari in this outfit:

Let’s not forget about the woman who‘s been the worst actress of the OC crew has become a style icon:

Last but not least, a German TV-presenter, and these pictures were actually made in May!

As you’ve seen, I had no time to post or comment on your blogs, sorry ’bout that. The next 30 days might go like this because of the exams I have, but I’ll try to save some time to live in the fashion world as well:)
