Stuart Weitzman on shoes!

Every year Stuart Weitzman hosts a pre-Oscar party to celebrate the shoes he has specially designed for the event.  Inspired by Cinderella, this year's $2 million dollar diamond "Fantasy" sandals outbid last year's "Ruby Slippers" worth only $1.25 million.   While Alison Krauss' Oscar nominated song from "Cold Mountain" didn't win for Best Song, her lucky feet got the opportunity to wear the starring shoes of the evening.  

The event was held on Friday, February 27 at Christie's in Beverly Hills and while the fabulous shoes were not on display, some of their equally amazing jeweled creations were there for all to drool over.  Of course Mr. Weitzman was there to pose to with nominee Patricia Clarkson and "Big Fish" twins, Ada and Arlene Tai to name a few of the Weitzman groupies in attendance.   Patricia Clarkson and fellow nominated actress 13  year old Keisha Castle-Hughes gave their glittery Weitzman's red carpet honors.  

Mr. Weitzman himself is a very personable, unassuming designer.  More mench than chic shoe couturier, he makes it clear, he just loves designing shoes.  The son of a shoemaker, he feels that all women can look sexy wearing great shoes. 

Drawing on a variety of sources for inspiration, the names of Weitzman's shoes are as fun as the designs themselves.  "Bling Bling" features a panda-esque toe decoration, "Tan Lines" are, of course, brown strappy sandals, "Bimbo" is a coquettish flat, while "Fatale" is destined for any femme ready to vamp in red patent leather boots. 

While chatting during dinner, Mr. Weitzman shared one of his favorite movie quotes, "There's an awful lot you can tell about a person by their shoes….where they're goin' and where they've been" from the film "Forrest Gump". And at Christie's on Friday night, the crowd was definitely coming and going in Weitzmans!
