The heiress who was recently threatened by a crazy fan in her house was already seen out shopping with her GMC Yukon, as if no form of physical threat has happened to her. You can’t blame the crazy fans with that sundress and heavily exposed cleavage, it’s like she’s taunting potential harassers herself!

Anne Valérie Hash offers this cool shaped shoe in a variety of colors:
And from the Armani Privé show comes a number of variations on the super-high spike heeled, pointy toed, bow-embellished pump.
My fave shoe from the Armani Privé show, though, is this glitzy version, which accompanied one of the many gorgeous business suit inspired evening looks that came down the runway.
Paris Fashion Week has started off with a beautiful bang, and I can’t wait to see what other couture outfits we get, whether or not there’s an Oscar red carpet for them to show up on in a few weeks.

Gucci’s skintight, over-the-knee boots can easily pinch-hit as the world’s hottest leggings.
Tricked-out with mini mohawks and studded to a fare-thee-well, these pink Prada numbers were the most wildly inventive anti-recession shoes of the season.
Dries Van Noten ushered in a welcome return to the super-chic pump, but with a bit of plot twist: an exotic snakeskin heel and last.
Slightly slouchy and insanely sexy, these thigh-high boots by Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte were a perfect partner for sky-high hems.
Jet black wasn’t the only game in town. Yves Saint Laurent’s ruby red, spindly-heel stunner is an instant classic, the shoe you’ll want to wear every day come fall.
Peek-a-boo cutouts and a glam horn heel add extra sizzle to Christian Dior’s fashionable lace-up.
These boots were made for walking: paired with everything from floaty frocks to tweedy cropped trousers, Burberry served up the ultimate all-weather platform.
Lanvin’s racy red pumps are gussied-up with mirror accents and a beyond-artsy, curvilinear heel.
A pop of cobalt at the toe and grey suede ties add a dose of 80s cool to Balenciaga’s woven leather, ankle-high shoes.
Playful and tres Parisienne, Louis Vuitton’s glitter- and pearl-bedecked shoes added a flirty accent to the classic collection.

Jennifer Lopez at the Oscar de la Renta show. J Lo wore fall 2008 Alexander McQueen bejeweled pumps featuring a 4.5 inch heel and jeweled, silk vamp. The shoes are available at the Alexander McQueen online website for $995.
At Michael Kors Spring 2009, Blake Lively from Gossip Girls was decked in, what else, head to toe Michael Kors. The lattice A dress is available at Netaporter while Michael Kors’ patent ‘Candi’ double ankle strap pumps are at Zappos.
Lindsay Lohan arrived at the Samantha Ronson show in these hot blue Chloe peeptoes, which are selling at Saks (for forest green only) for $585.
Mary Kate Olsen loves the knee high, bondage, gladiator inspired look (seen in Chanel here). So it came as no surprise that Mary-Kate wore these Spring 2008 Givenchys at the DVF fashion show.
Finally, Nicole Richie was rocking these suede with zipper pull Pierre Hardy pumps. They are 675 euros at Luisaviaroma.

I'm just wondering if Celine has contacts or relation with other designers.. I found out this details..
Celine is a Paris-based concern founded in 1947 as a children's shoe store. In 1950's, it expanded it's product lines to leather goods and accessories including perfume and cologne. In the 1960's, Celine started offering womens ready-to-wear and established retail stores around the world during the 1970's.
Celine was purchased by LVMH and became part of it's luxury goods companies along with Dior, Givenchy, and others. In 1997, Michael Kors was hired as Chief Designer and promoted toCreative Director in 1999.
In 2000 Celine opened a 2400 square ft. store on Madison Avenue, in New York. In May 2001 it opened a super-chic store on Bond Street, in London. Kors brought a splash of ethnic colour and handwork from India. He chose a vibrant palette of hot pink and orange on white, green and spice colours. Michael Kors showed the Celine Fall/Winter 2003 collection during Paris Fashion Week in March 2003.
I was confused how did Fendi Shoes started and became famous... just found out some details.
Fendi began in 1918 when Adele Casagrande opened a leather and fur shop in Via del Plebiscito in central Rome. When Adele married Edoardo Fendi in1925, they made a decision to change the name to Fendi. The business prospered, and a new shop was opened in Via Piave in 1932. By 1946 Paola, 15, the eldest of the couple's five daughters, went to work for the firm, followed by her sisters Carla, Anna, Franca, and Alda.
In 1965 a marriage between the Fendis and German designer Karl Lagerfeld was sealed, and it proved to be fortuitous for both. Lagerfeld immediately created the inverted FF logo that joined the growing list of international status symbols, and then set about, aided and abetted by the sisters, to revolutionize the treatment of fur and other clothing.
What had once been a precious but stiff and heavy garment was transformed into a light, soft, easy-to-wear and above all flattering outfit. The team went on to invent new ways of working with fur, tanning, dying, and treating, and took previously unused skins and turned them into fashionable garments. By 1966 Fendi had presented its first couture fur collection, designed by Lagerfeld. It was an immediate success with foreign buyers. Marvin Traub, president of Bloomingdale's, discovered Fendi's leather goods and introduced them to the United States. Other outlets soon followed, and today Fendi is largely represented through high-end department stores.
In 1969 Fendi presented its first ready-to-wear fur collection at Palazzo Pitti in Florence, bringing continuously evolving techniques and imaginative designs to lower-priced furs without sacrificing quality. When the sisters could not find the fabric clothes they wanted to show under the furs their ready-to-wear line was born, again to great success.
The company's accessories are now found on the arm of many stars and signature bags such as the Spy, buckled B-bag, and embellished bucket bag are often in high demand sometimes creating long waiting lists.
