SHOE FETISH: For those fans of Manolo Blahniks and Sarah Jessica Parker, get ready to do the red carpet walk in the celeb’s personal shoes.
Parker, whose new movie “I Don’t Know How She Does It,” released Friday, has autographed three pairs of her favorite Manolo Blahniks — size 7 1/2 — to be auctioned off to benefit “Starry Nights,” the 15th anniversary of Children of Bellevue’s “Reach Out and Read” program. One pair, stilettos in matte metal-tone with faux diamond detail, were made exclusively for Parker by Blahnik, while a pair of reptile mules with a front bow treatment come from Parker’s personal closet. The third pair, multicolor woven leather stilettos that have a Missoni-inspired look, were made by Blahnik for a fashion shoot featuring Parker in Elle magazine. The shoes are being auctioned at charitybuzz.com beginning today.
The event, presented by Scholastic, will be staged Oct. 3. A part of this year’s festivities will be co-chairs Julianne Moore and Bart Freundlich, along with friends Brooke Shields, Ellen Barkin, Billy Crudup, Ana Gasteyer, and John C. Reilly, who will read specifically selected children’s books to an adult audience. Other sponsors include Tommy Hilfiger Group.
