We love the crop as an accessory. [WWD]

2009′s other unconventional accessory of choice, Alexander McQueen‘s aquatic-fang/disco-lobster shoes were apparently not such a hot commodity with Abbey Lee Kershaw, Natasha Poly, and Sasha Pivovarova. The trio refused to walk the runway in the 10-inchers, citing hazards to their health. [Grazia]
