Miss Meghan, Fashion Advice

October 19, 2006


Before we went into this amazing event (1200 people at the Waldorf for sit-down dinner!) Big shout out to Robin and Nicole and the whole team who organized this major event and QVC and FFANY for raising so much money year after year for Breast Cancer treatment and research. I chatted with the nice WireImage man about his shoes (he needed just a bit of polish) in the picture to the left.

Even in my fierce Giuseppe Zanotti four-inch plum patent suede satin bejeweled peep-toe pumps (see first pic above) i was terrified to walk that press line. there were about 500 photographers and truthfully when i saw it, i just wanted to hide behind bebe and slink in quietly! jade helped me, and i ended up having fun with pam from bagtrends, the wireimage videographer, and few other fun people, then we ducked into the event to have a seat and a drink before dinner.

june ambrose looked gorgeous in her bottega gown and giuseppe stiletto sandals--i so admire her elegance and self-possession (see pic above). bebe wore some amaaazing peter fox velvet mules (see pic above) and cracked us all up with her commentary. we chilled for a few then hit the dining room for a fab awards ceremony -- christian louboutin! michael atmore! bebe! fran drescher! carson kressley! nina garcia! -- and a delicious dinner which i got to barely eat because then we whipped into the back to judge the shoe contest.

Fran Drescher, Carson Kressely, Bebe Neuwirth and Michael Atmore and I--were in charge of judging the Most Elegant, Most Sexy and Most Amusing shoes of the eve. We had a blast bantering about who was the mostest and quickly came together with who won what.

Stephen Schwartz was a unanimous winner for Most Amusing, which I got to present. He wore customised Cole Haan black patent slippers with a pink bow and pink diamante. As the publisher of Footwear Plus, he made some lovely comments about how much Shoes on Sale helps people with cancer, a topic close to his heart. And ours. Hi Grandma!

Then Mya came out and sang four songs--she is amazing. i think she was wearing four inch stilettos too and she was dancing up a storm quite effortlessly. i want to learn to do that!

By the end of the night, I was reclining in a big puffy chair in the coat check area, and falling asleep in the car on the way home. a delicious night of shoe i must say.
