She's famous for her love of Manolo Blahnik heels but unlike her Sex and the City character, Carrie Bradshaw, you won't see Sarah Jessica Parker wearing them at weekends. While the actress has no intention of ending her love affair with fashion, she has revealed that her passion for high heels has caused permanent damage to her feet --and she's having to go cold turkey as a result. "For ten or so years, I literally ran in heels," Parker told e-tailer Net-a-Porter's digital fashion magazine. "I worked 18-hour days and never took them off. I wore beautiful shoes, some better made than others, and never complained."
"So I got shoes from there and the bottom of the shoes aren't leather, they are plastic, so I slipped a couple times, twisted my ankle." I went to a foot doctor and he said, "Your foot does things it shouldn't be able to do. That bone there... you've created that bone. It doesn't belong there."The moral of the story is, the chickens are coming home to roost. It's sad, because my feet took me all over the world, but eventually they were like, 'You know what, we are really tired, can you just stop - and don't put cheap shoes on us?'"
Prince Harry backs cause close to Diana's heart
His late mother sparked an international outcry 13 years ago when she walked through a minefield to highlight the shocking legacy of anti-personnel landmines. Now Prince Harry has taken on Princess Diana's mantle by becoming patron of the 25th anniversary appeal of the organisation she championed, the Halo Trust. The 28-year-old prince will support the Dumfriesshire-based charity, which has cleared 1.4 million mines since being set up in 1988, throughout its landmark year. Diana highlighted the work of the Halo Trust less than eight months before she died, when she was pictured wearing a face mask and protective clothing during a visit to a minefield clearance in Angola in January 1997. A St James's Palace spokesman said: "Prince Harry takes a keen and active interest in Halo's work and is delighted to support the charity in its 25th year."
Victoria Beckham in the plush Range Rover Evoque she helped design
She helped to design and launch a special limited edition 'baby' off-roader for Range Rover last year. And Victoria Beckham made sure to give the vehicle a glowing endorsement as she drove through the streets of London on Friday morning. Looking preened and polished to perfection as she pouted her way through the journey, the 38-year-old fashion designer would have no doubt been the envy of the roads as she navigated her way through the traffic.
