Cody to wear million dollar shoes to OscarsFebruary 24th, 2008 - 4:31 pm ICT by admin
New York, Feb 24 (IANS) Diablo Cody, “Juno” writer and a former stripper, has been chosen to wear footwear designer Stuart Weitzman’s million dollar shoes for the Oscar awards. The “Retro Rose” shoes feature two Kwiat diamond roses, fixed to 1940s-style beige metallic T-strap high heels. Over 1,800 Kwiat diamonds, weighing 100 carats, were used to make the roses and 400 of them have been incorporated into the design of the shoes, which is worth over $1 million.
Shoe mogul Weitzman has also created a ballerina flat with a similar diamond-like design, which Oscar nominee Cody will change into after she walks the red carpet and kicks off her high heels, said imdb.com.
This is the first time Weitzman has created a changeover pair of shoes with a matching design element for use at the Academy Awards.
Weitzman said: “I think it is great and typically Diablo that she chose to be not just glamorous but also practical in her choice of shoes for this year’s Academy Awards.
