BIG FOOT: A giant pair of plastic shoes greeted guests at a party Thursday night in London to fete the collaboration between architect Zaha Hadid and the eco-friendly Brazilian shoe brand Melissa. “They’re so modern aren’t they? And the way that they don’t match, it’s just genius,” said designer Judy Blame, referring to the slightly mis-matched plastic shoes. Guests, including Mark Ronson, Roisin Murphy, Pam Hogg and Jefferson Hack, gathered at the Wapping Project, a former hydraulic power station, for the launch.
