Surging around Net-a-Porter.com I found the CUTEST collection of children’s ballet flats and booties by Bottega Veneta. Ohhh I wish I knew someone who’s child needed expensive designer shoes. Come to think of it, a girl I went to high school with did email me pictures of her baby girl recently… But I think I need designer shoes more than she does.
Did you know that Manolo Blahnik designed the shoes for the Sophia Coppola directed movie, Marie Antoinette, staring Kirsten Dunst as the young queen?“When the producers called, I dropped everything,” he says. “When I was a boy, my mother read a Marie-Antoinette biography, and I have read Antonia Fraser’s version. I can’t wait to see it. They said ‘make them sexy’, but I wanted to do something very academic.” So he began by studying original 18th-century shoes in Paris and at the V&A Museum.
