The ultimate boot sale at Gwyneth's?
Gwyneth Paltrow has cleared out the wardrobe and her cast-offs are now set to be put
up for sale in aid of a children's charity. According to Marie Claire, the Hollywood
star will donate the proceeds of the ultimate
sale to the London-based KIDS Company. It is believed that many of her
designer pieces will be put up for sale but it remains to be seen if any of her
fabulous footwear will be available to purchase. In the last year, Gwyneth has made
the headlines with a selection of skyscraper heels that reignited the fashion
world's love for not-so-sensible shoes. And in recent weeks, the actress was spotted
stepping out in a particularly striking pair. While attending the launch party of
her new TV cookery and travel show Spain ... On The Road Again, Gwyneth dressed up
her simple blazer, skirt and t-shirt combo with a pair of black, bow piping slim
stiletto heels which were encrusted with sparking diamonds. According to the Mirror,
the shoes were worth a staggering GBP15,000.
Shoes give inspiration to SATC writer
The creator of Sex and the City has admitted that when it came to inspiration, she
often used shoes as a muse. Candace Bushnell, who wrote the book that was later to
be transformed into the hit TV show and movie starring Sarah Jessica Parker, made
the comments while promoting her latest work One Fifth Avenue in New York. According
to the Miami Herald, the 49-year-old was decked out in glamorous leopard-print heels
after a year that has seen Sex and the City The Movie storm the box office and the
take-off of Lipstick Jungle - a new show based on one of her books. When asked about
her inspiration, Ms Bushnell said: "I think the easiest way to approach it is to try
to capture the times we live in - the shoes, the clothes." However, she added that
self-esteem was the biggest issue facing women today. "There's a lot of waxing,
plucking and manicuring involved in being [female]," Ms Bushnell joked. It was
recently reported that the writer is to begin work on the Carrie Diaries, a new work
detailing the Sex and the City character's time at high school.
Celebs go low-key
With high-profile weddings from UK stars such as Coleen and Wayne Rooney in vogue at
the moment, celebs on the other side of the pond are having decidedly more low key
affairs. First up is Scarlett Johansson who, according to Glamour magazine, recently
married actor Ryan Reynolds at a secret ceremony in Vancouver in front of only their
family and friends. This came as something of a turnaround, as the actress was
recently quoted as saying: "(There's) no big plan yet. But it's a good time and
we're just ... enjoying our time to be young and engaged. I mean, I'm 23. There's no
reason to rush into it. Everything feels very natural and relaxed." Meanwhile,
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are believed to be the next starry couple to take
a trip up the aisle. The pair recently enjoyed a romantic break together in Italy to
attend a friend's wedding, however, the two have been secretive about their own
relationship. Could another secret ceremony be on the cards?
