The Ugliest Shoes You’ll Never Consider Spending $1,200 On

Despite an unceremonious fall from grace in 1992, '80s artist Rob Pruitt is making a name for himself once again in the contemporary art world, thanks in part to the chrome statue of Andy Warhol he erected on a high-traffic street corner in Manhattan's Union Square last year. One would think that, with his irreverent…

Jimmy Choo Honors 90-Year-Old Iris Apfel — With A Stiletto

Iris Apfel is the grand dame of quirky, eccentric style. And luxury shoe maker Jimmy Choo wanted to honor Apfel's signature look by designing a shoe after her.

Jimmy Choo Uggs: Adorable Or Fugs?

I'm on the fence about these blinged-out Jimmy Choo Uggs, which Nicky Hilton got an advance pair and tweeted a pic of yesterday. They're kinda cute — like I see them cheering me up on a glum winter day. But the "limited distribution" booties cash in at over $1,000. Um, what? That's crazy! How much…

When It Comes To Shoes, How Much Does Size Matter?

Today I spotted an item in The New York Post and could instantly feel her pain: Katy Perry attended some party this weekend and was so determined to wear her new Jimmy Choo Zap shoes, above (P.S. they're $2,495 -- if you manage to work your way up the waiting list), that she hobbled around…

How Much Would You Drop On A Pair Of Sneaks?

Sneakers are supposed to be less expensive than your fancy-schmancy heels, right? Well, it would depend on just how much you want your comfy kicks to make a statement. We already knew that Jimmy Choo was making sneakers, but did you know they were $600 a pop? We have no doubt that the wealthy and…

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. At least that's how the saying goes, right? Jimmy Choo once attempted to launch a fragrance, to no avail. But they're back at it.
