Diamond Shoes of the Oscars

Manolo says, once again the Stuart Weitzman has produced the most super fantastic shoes for tonight’s ceremony of the Oscars, and they are to be worn by the Anika Non-i Rose.

She has been overshadowed by Beyoncé Knowles and Oscar nominee Jennifer Hudson. But Sunday night, Anika Non-i Rose, the third songbird in the Dreamgirls trio, gets her chance to glitter on the Oscars red carpet in Stuart Weitzman’s Diamond Dream shoe.

Rose digs Weitzman’s heels because “they’re so comfortable, so when they asked me if I wanted to do it, I said absolutely.” Her silver stiletto, worth $500,000, is adorned with 30 carats’ worth of Kwiat diamonds.

Rose says she’s not nervous about losing any of the rocks. “I’m sure someone will be standing next to me with a net and a metal detector in case one falls off,” she says with a laugh.

Only half the million dollars? Last year the shoes were worth $3,000,000! Here is the picture of the last year’s shoes.

Manolo the Pamphleteer

Manolo says, here is the podcast from the Pajamas Media.

About three-quarters of the way through the podcast you will hear the Manolo mentioned. Why? Because he is is writing the pamphlet for the New Pamphleteers, which is headed by the Manolo’s internet friend, the Adam Bellow.

The pamphlet shall be entitled “The Consolation of the Shoes” and it shall appear in perhaps three weeks or so.
