Best know for celebrity bashing, gossip columnist Perez Hilton is one of many celebrities that was recently tapped by ShoeDazzle to design charity shoes. Among Hilton’s “Celebrity Shoe Design Program for Charity” peers are Kim Kardashian, Kristin Cavallari, and Jenny McCarthy — just to name a few.
The fashion-forward media mogul designed not one but TWO shoes for ShoeDazzle (always trying to top the celebrities). Hilton chose to donate 100% of the profits from both shoes to GLSEN: Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, which addresses LGBT issues in K-12 schools.
According to Look to the Stars, “the first shoe Hilton designed, named “Sparkle,” is a black faux suede pump with silver stud detailing on the heel, platform and dual ankle straps. The second is a casual unisex silver metallic sneaker with stud embellishments and zipper detailing, named “Shine.” The pump and sneaker will be available on November 11th, exclusively in ShoeDazzle showrooms.”
In discussing the charity collaboration, Perez remarked, “I designed one amazing shoe that Carrie Bradshaw would drool over. But I also wanted to make a unisex and sophisticated sneaker that I could wear too! ”
As if Hilton was not charitable enough (never thought I’d be saying that), ShoeDazzle is presenting a further fundraising opportunity to first time clients, Perez Hilton fans and GLSEN supporters: $5 from any first time purchase on ShoeDazzle.com using the code PEREZ at checkout, beginning October 24 – November 15, will be donated to GLSEN as well.
