WALK OF FAME: Stuart Weitzman has joined forces with young Hollywood to raise money for ovarian cancer. Scarlett Johansson, Hayden Panettiere, Olivia Palermo and Michelle Trachtenberg each worked with Weitzman to co-design a footwear style in which all proceeds will benefit Marsha Moses’ research in ovarian cancer at the Folkman Institute in Boston. The collection will be available in September at stuartweitzman.com, as well as Weitzman’s flagship stores in New York, Beverly Hills and Chicago.
Trachtenberg co-designed a denim crystal-snake calfskin extreme platform pump with stud detailing down the back of the heel, which will retail for $425; Palermo’s shoe is a satin strappy ankle-wrap sandal embedded with fuchsia feathers, retailing for $425.; Johansson co-designed a red patent man-tailored cut-out oxford platform with contrast burgundy lacing, retailing for $425, and Panettiere’s shoe is a black suede extreme platform ankle boot with metal hardware accent, retailing for $498.
BEAUTIFUL shoes benefiting a worthy cause.
