Celebrities put their best foot forward
Only a few weeks to go until our ‘Killer Heels to Kick out Killer Diseases’ campaign launches. Celebrities, designers and high street fashion brands are backing the appeal by donating their most iconic and show- stopping killer heels.
High profile, influential woman such as Samantha Cameron, Helena Bonham-Carter, Sienna Miller, Sadie Frost, Pixie Lott, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Nigella Lawson, Pearl Lowe (and even Jonathan Ross!) have put their best foot forward and have either sent in or confirmed that they will donate a pair of their favourite party shoes.
Donations have been pouring in this week. Sadie Frost donated a pair of brand new Beatrix Ong heels, Jonathan Ross – a pair of men’s Berluti brogues. New shoes by Alexander McQueen, Betty Jackson and Camilla Skovgaard have also been sent in.
Today a beautiful pair of unworn terracotta heels by Jimmy Choo arrived from Nigella Lawson. Called the ‘Lawson’ and signed by Nigella, the nations’ favourite foodie lady said we just had to have them.
The ‘Killer Heels’ appeal launches to coincide with World Pneumonia Day on the 12th November.
Sienna Miller said: “I am very happy to be able to help support such a brilliant cause.” Designer Camilla Stovgaard added: “Children are our future and it is an honour to contribute to a cause that works towards saving and protecting the health and well-being of children around the world.”
Betty Jackson said: “We are delighted to support the Killer Heels to Stamp Out Killer Diseases campaign. Save the Children’s work is so important, and we hope the auction is a huge success . ”
Finally, Sadie Frost sent in a handwritten note: “Beatrix Ong designed these shoes for me – I love them! They are original but classic. I hope you enjoy and love them as much as I do. By the way they are called ‘The Sadie’.”
