The Brooklyn Museum’s Going Head Over Heels

-------

LouboutinWe’re the first to admit that heels are a powerful thing. Each season we manage to add a few (or a dozen) must-have pairs to our overstuffed wardrobes. And why? Is it because heels are sexy? Flattering? Outfit-making? Or just fun to wear? The Brooklyn Museum will explore these questions (and many more) with its upcoming exhibition Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe. On view from September 10, the exhibit will feature 160 heels from as early as the 17th century to today. A main focus will be the sculptural, architectural, and artistic qualities of high heels, which range from the wearable to the avant-garde. On one end of the spectrum will be designs by household names like Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin, Chanel, and Roger Vivier, on the other, conceptual styles by Iris van Herpen, Elsa Schiaparelli, Zaha Hadid, and many more.

Highlights from the exhibit include Marilyn Monroe’s Ferragamo stilettos from 1959; silk, metal, and glass mules by Vivier for House of Dior from 1960; Céline’s mink-covered pumps from Spring ’13; eight-inch platforms designed by Rem D. Koolhaas for Lady Gaga; and mind-bending 3-D-printed heels by Van Herpen.

In addition to the show, there will be a fully illustrated catalog with essays by Stefano Tonchi, Lisa Small, and Caroline Weber, as well as six short films inspired by high heels. The films were commissioned from artists including Steven Klein, Nick Knight, and Marilyn Minter. The full exhibition will also be traveling to other venues, which have yet to be announced.

Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe will run from September 10, 2014 through February 15, 2015 at the Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, NY 11238. For more information, visit brooklynmuseum.org.

Who Run The World?

Girls. Or at least that’s what Forbes‘ latest report suggests…about the modeling world. While 2013′s top-earning female super—Gisele Bündchen (who else?)—raked in a cool $42 million between September 2012 and September 2013, the world’s most money-making male model, Sean O’Pry (of Versace, H&M, Kenzo, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Spicebomb campaign fame) made only $1.5M in the same timeframe. Not that we’re terribly surprised—Beyoncé’s rarely wrong.

Ferragamo Takes Us To The Movies

Lauren Hutton is returning to the silver screen—or, rather, your computer screen—in Walking Stories, a romantic comedy created by Luca Guadagnino for Salvatore Ferragamo. The film captures a love story that unfolds in three cities near and dear to Mr. Ferragamo’s heart: Los Angeles, where his brand flourished; Shanghai, where the future of fashion lies; and Florence, his beloved hometown. Alongside Hutton, fresh faces such as Kaya Scodelario, Billy Magnussen, and Nathalie Buscombe bring the tale to life (and the rising stars look good doing it—decked out in Ferragamo, naturally). Walking Stories premieres October 8 on www.ferragamo.com, and will be followed by eight biweekly episodes and behind-the-scenes footage. A series of film stills debuts here, exclusively on Style.com.
