    I just saw one of those pictures – it’s Tyra Banks!

  2. Style Spy April 4, 2007 at 9:31 am #

    I’m guessing they are the shoes of La Lopez.

    I was thinking Miss Trya too… am I right???

    Whitney Houston?

    Look how big those feet are. Has to be Naomi Campbell.

    I think it’s Tyra Banks. The sandals with the blue gown look familiar.

  7. crabby April 4, 2007 at 10:12 am #

    Definitely Tyra. The shot of the boots gives it away!

    Iman – the dark blue dress looks like the one she wore that was designed in Season 2 of Project Rundway.

    Tranny Banks!

    I would have said Oprah – but I can’t see her doing the black calf-boots.

    janet jackson.

  13. dillene April 4, 2007 at 12:07 pm #

    I was thinking of Miss Jackson as well. You see her wearing tennis shoes from time to time.

  14. Andy Shoes April 4, 2007 at 1:03 pm #

    I was thinking either Naomi or Tyra becase of the catwalk-style shot in the lower right and the large feet hanging out over the ends of the sandals.

    Why does Miss J LOVE ths game SO MUCH? She is truly terrible at it, but delights in how great others are at it.

    How about Halle Berry

  17. magista April 4, 2007 at 1:26 pm #

    Whoever she is, she needs help in buying sandals of the right size so that her toes don’t look all prehensile, curling off the ends like that.

    Halle Berry

  19. nicole April 4, 2007 at 2:06 pm #

    i think it’s tyra banks.

    the black boots look like the ones that she was wearing on gofugyourself.com recently.

  20. SAHMmy April 4, 2007 at 2:38 pm #

    Nicole nails it.


    You’re GOOD, girl!

  21. Leah April 4, 2007 at 3:31 pm #

    Definitely Tyra.

  22. DivaLisa April 4, 2007 at 3:32 pm #

    Tyra in the fugly formal shorts and boots which accentuated her thunder thighs! Yikes.

  23. meimei April 4, 2007 at 3:40 pm #

    I was going to say Halle Berry, but after taking another look at the link to Go Fug Yourself, I’m going with Tyra Banks on this one as well.

    Dearest Manolo,

    Perhaps you’ve already addressed this but could you please inform your vast readership about the horrendous affliction scene in these photos. While this person has contracted a less severe case she none the less suffers from toe overhang! Her Ladyship cannot abide this hideous malady. Where does it come from, in fact? Is it vanity that leads one to buy a sandal 2 sizes smaller simply because it’s possible to cram ones hoof into it or is it the strain of a zaftig figure testing the limits of elasticity in tiny leather straps? Sandal time is upon us now would be the perfect time to do your part to stamp out this plague.

    i think its tyra banks… not cos i recognise her feet or anything but cosof the floor in one ofthe pictures… it looks like the floor in one of the judging rooms on americas next top model!!

  26. gemdiva April 4, 2007 at 4:21 pm #

    I agree with Lady Prisspott. Toe hang is not a good look for anyone. Also, those black sandals with the ankle bracelet strap will give me nightmares tonight. They look positively blue light special. Whoever this is (I’m thinking Tyra) I’m sure she can afford better.

  27. LaVida2 April 4, 2007 at 5:14 pm #

    Ty Ty Baby….Tyra Banks
    I know those baseball bat shaped legs anywhere!!!!!

  28. aimlessjoys April 4, 2007 at 5:36 pm #

    I really don’t know about Tyra Banks, but crowd mentality makes me say that’s whose shoes they are, even though my inner shoe muse says Halle Berry. Ha! Could it be the wonderful Iman? Where is Iman these days, anyway? Oh, well, I’ll say Tyra Banks.

  29. Katrina April 4, 2007 at 5:57 pm #

    Tyra Banks! I’m a bit late guessing, but definitely her. With all the evindence… Toe hang, horrendous, yes.

  30. nicole April 4, 2007 at 6:31 pm #

    thank you.

  31. asia April 4, 2007 at 6:56 pm #

    its gotta be tyra

  32. MeLizzard April 5, 2007 at 11:10 am #

    I agree Toe Hang is a bad look, and should be avoided. However, I can understand how it happens, not necessarily related to vanity. I’m unsure what size shoe Miss Tyra wears, but I’m sure it’s looong. Wearing an 11 myself, I can testify that it’s often difficult to find pretty shoes in 11 or 12. Naturally, she has access to EVERYTHING, and this should not be an issue, but one can often be tempted by the siren call of the sexy, one-size-down sandal, if it’s the only size available. As my feets are also super-narrow, I often resort to buying size 10 sandals*, all the while exercising great care to procure as proper a fit as possible. No pinching or Toe Hang is acceptable. We only get one pair of the feets and they should be well-cared-for.
    *Is there a commonly-held belief among shoemakers that, if one’s feets are longer than a size 10, they must also be WIDE? Maybe Miss Tyra suffers this woe, also?
