Sexy, Stunning Shoes

While shopping for my perfect pump, I ran across this stunning and oh-so-sexy pair by Giuseppe Zanotti - Jeweled Leather d'Orsay Pumps:

For a split second (or maybe more than a second) I wondered "Perhaps I don't need those work pumps. Hmm...I could get some pretty good use out of these shoes. I could wear them to...the mall...and...ummm...hanging out with my friends...and...oh yea, the grocery store..." Yea, needless to say I didn't get these babies...oh, if only I could wake up rich! These jeweled Zanotti pumps would so be in my shoe rack!

Any rich girls out there trying to fill their Spring 2007 metallic quota should snatch these pumps up asap! These shoes would fit the metallic trend with class!

Oh-So-Lovely Oscar Looks

The stars looked fab last night on the Academy Award red carpet. Here are some of my fave looks:

Cate Blanchett in Armani - just lovely!

Helen Mirren in Christian Lacroix - doesn't she look "regal"?

Nicole Kidman in Balenciaga - on anyone else this dress is goofy, on her - c'est chic!

Reese Witherspoon in Nina Ricci - every girl is going to go out and get bangs now - she looks great!

Beyonce - her dress was ok but her hair/makeup were faboo (the picture doesn't do the look justice - it looked much better on TV)

Rachel Weisz - slightly casual with a sexy twist - love it!

Another great night of fashion fun!

News From Nick

Here is the schedule of Nick's appearances! Will he be in your town? Please let us know if you are available to serve as a BPR field reporter!

Katy Checks In

One thing we've learned after three seasons of Project Runway is that the designers don't have to win in order to end up as winners. BPR regular Katherine Gerdes checks in with her latest:
I'm crazy busy getting ready for the DIVA fashion show this Saturday! I've got a whole new collection which is going to be "split" into 2 fashion shows coming up, DIVA this week and Voltage April 11th. Don't worry though... I've made the designs work as a whole collection and look good as two smaller shows (that was a tricky one to figure out!). I've also been invited by LVMH to show the entire collection out at Foxwoods CT on march 24th. I'll send you more info on that as I get it.
Click here for ticket information on this Saturday's event. Anyone in the Minneapolis area available to send in a field report? E-mail the team at BPR. Good luck Katy!

The Latest

The Seattle Times has an interview with Michael Knight.

Did anyone notice Rachael Ray at the Oscars last night? What was she wearing?
Chloe Dao was the featured speaker at this event in Houston.

Katy Gerdes is one of the featured designers here in Minneapolis. Also see post above.

Click here for an article about the success of Reality Shows.

Chloe Dao is featured in this TLC show called "The Greatest Fashion Icons in Film." Thanks Katie.

Here is a link to a podcast interview with Jeffrey Sebelia. (The sound is a little cluttered, but it's still fun!)
