Lindsay Lohan Designing Shoes for 6126 Collection

Lindsay Lohan 6126 ShoesLindsay Lohan has begun creating "timeless" shoes for her 6126 collection.

The 24-year-old actress, who was recently released from a three-month enforced stay at the Betty Ford rehab clinic in California, is working on a "glamorous" collection of footwear with business partner Kristi Kaylor, who reveals the actress is heavily involved in their design.

"I took inspiration from old Hollywood glamour and added a modern edge. It was key to make comfortable, timeless shoes that can easily go from day to night and feel cool, chic and glamorous," Lindsay said.

Kristi added, "She comes to meetings with tears, photos and fabrics. She brings her own shoes in to show specifics. She's ultra-prepared, all the time."

The troubled star hopes the shoes will be the kind women can wear from season to season and be hard-wearing. "They're timeless. You're buying an over-the-knee boot to wear for years," Kristi said.

Naked Christian Louboutin Shoe Test

Christian Louboutin measures how good his shoes are by what they look like on a naked woman. The footwear designer says any good shoe should be able to make a female body look sexy without the help of any clothes.

“The ultimate must still look good when a woman is naked. The design that encapsulates my career is the Pigalle, a low-cut, high-heeled pump. It’s so subtle in that it adds something sexy to the body, but you don’t immediately realize that it’s the shoe that is making the difference.”

Christian says his obsession with shoes came after seeing showgirls wear them: “My interest in shoes came from showgirls. Apart from feathers, there is nothing else to the outfit than their shoes. I thought about being a shoe designer when I was about 12-years-old, but it wasn’t until I was in my mid-teens that I realized it could be my real job.”

Christian - whose high-heeled designs have become a favorite among a host of celebrities including Sarah Jessica Parker, Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss - recently claimed a good pair of shoes help transform a woman’s attitude. “When women put on a pair of beautiful shoes they instantly hold themselves differently. Shoes transform your body language and attitude. They lift you physically and emotionally. I remember watching a Spanish woman in my shop try on some heels. She instantly stood up taller, her chest went out and her shoulders went back. She told her friend that they were better than a face lift.”


Jimmy Choo Says Shoes Affect Personality

Jimmy ChooJimmy Choo thinks shoes can change a woman’s personality.

The famous designer - whose creations are sought after by women across the globe - adores his work and believes footwear plays such an important role in people’s lives that he relishes the chance to improve their lifestyle.

“We all wear shoes, every day - we have to. So they are a very important part of your wardrobe. They say something about the way you hold your body. Shoes must be elegant, comfortable. They affect the person’s personality.”

The 40-year-old craftsman - who was born in Malaysia - has been designing shoes since he was just 11, but admits he still has battles with himself while trying to perfect his styles: “I’m a perfectionist. I get angry and I lose my tempter, but only over shoes. My temper is very quick but there’s never anything personal. If I lose my tempter with a member of staff, afterwards we’ll go for a drink. Maybe I just love my shoes too much!”

Jimmy recently revealed how it is never too late for people to start wearing heels, but can’t start off with skyscrapers. “You should start with two or two and a half inches, get used to that first. But a lot of men, when they’ve been married for ten years, they walk in front of their wives. When a woman is wearing heels they have to walk more slowly, but sometimes their husbands won’t wait for them.”

Madonna May Design Line for Macy’s

Madonna

Could we soon see in a commercial with Martha Stewart and Jessica Simpson?

According to Women’s Wear Daily, the singer may become the latest celebrity connected to a product line sold at Macy’s. The 51-year-old is reportedly nearing a deal that would have her name linked to contemporary women’s collection.

Potential items sold would include accessories, clothing, intimates and shoes. Brand names in contention for the new lines include “Material Girl” (that seems too easy a choice to me) and “Truth or Dare” (for the lingerie department).

Three years ago, Madonna also launched “M by Madonna,” which sold in H&M stores.

More Images of Jimmy Choo For H&M Leak

Jimmy Choo for H&M

Slowly but surely, more pictures of the Jimmy Choo for H&M collection emerge online, and to be frank, aside from the shoes, I’m not too impressed.

The suede and animal prints are a bit on the tacky side; as for the clothes, I could find the same pieces for most likely less than half the price at Forever 21. The sandals, over-the-knees boots, and men’s footwear, however, are killer.

Check out all 20 images after the jump.

DJ AM and his Nikes

The unexpected death of (a.k.a. Adam Goldstein) has left several projects in limbo.

In addition to working with MTV on Gone Too Far, a reality series about addiction, the disc jockey was also collaborating with Nike about a line bearing his logo.

The shoemaker, like the cable channel, is now having to reassess its plans. A company rep claims they plan to consult with Goldstein’s family about how to move forward with the limited-edition Nike Dunks.

Adam, who was once engaged to the fashionable , reportedly owned over 700 pairs of the brand’s shoes.

Pinksage Adidas Top Ten Kicks
@pinksage: Adidas



A couple of days ago, we hit up the Chic Dish Twitter account and asked our followers to send in a picture of the kicks that they were wearing at that very moment. It was an experiment, and if 20 responses came in, we would have given a $20 Zappos gift certificate away randomly to one of the submitters. Unforunately, we only got 17 submissions, so no giveaway on this one—however, we are going to do this regularly, so be on the lookout, and be sure to follow Chic Dish on Twitter.

That said, we had a great time checking out the submissions, all of which you can find after the jump, along with the Twitter user who sent it in. Go take a look, and let us know what you think - any favorites?

Edit: Okay, we are getting a few questions about the roll of toilet paper in the above photo—we checked with @pinksage, and apparently, she has “the sniffles” and was too lazy, or broke (have you seen the economy lately), to do it up right and grab a box of Kleenex.
