Killer Heels, The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe… Part One

Killer Heels, The Art of the High Heeled Shoe, at the Palm Springs Art Museum through December 13, is a traveling exhibit organized by the Brooklyn Museum.

The shoes below were especially designed for Lady Gaga’s introduction of her perfume, FAME, at Macy’s.  I had to start with these because, well, they’re so Gaga…

      1. My heaven? A ladies shoe store. I am a freak for shoes shopping with spouse. I turned her into one as well. A win win situation.
