Trendspotting: Kate Upton, Katy Perry And Ashanti Step Out In ‘SEX’ Shoes

The late great Amy Winehouse famously wrote a song called “(F–k Me) Pumps”, about the sexy shoes women wear out to fancy clubs.  But now designer Christian Louboutin took it one step further with a line of kicks emblazoned with the word “SEX”! The shoes feature genuine Swarovski crystals, and at $1,400 a pair, they don’t come cheap. But the high price tag hasn’t made them any less popular with style conscious (and sexy!) stars. Kate Upton stepped out in her new Loubs at the Jeffrey Fashion Cares benefit in New York City last night, while Katy Perry wore her own pair to the ECHO Awards in Berlin last week. Singer Ashanti was also seen sporting the suggestive shoe at the Falguni & Shane Peacock Fall 2012 fashion show during New York Fashion Week last month. She’s obviously ahead of the curve! Would you want a pair of these NSFW shoes for yourself? Head to the gallery below for a closer look!

Kim Kardashian Unveils Hottest Candle Ever


Kim Kardashian’s wax figure was unveiled at Madame Tussauds yesterday, causing millions of candles all over the world to feel insecure about their bodies. Kim spent days detailing the creation of the double on her blog and, apparently, it’s not at all similar to when Han Solo got sealed in carbonite (like we had assumed). The real Kim was on hand in New York to check out her completed likeness, which was dressed in a $1000 Herve Leger bandage dress and Christian Louboutin shoes. Naked candles across the country melted with jealousy.

Kim is the latest celeb to be immortalized by the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, which recently welcomed Robert Pattinson, Miley Cyrus and RuPaul into their halls. But she feels that her new, waxy self is in good company. “I would love to hang out with Michael Jackson, Jennifer Lopez,” she told PopEater. “I saw Usher over there, Beyonce. Maybe Beyonce can teach me a dance or two!”

Were sisters Kourtney and Khloe jealous that they weren’t also tapped by Madame Tussauds? “No! They weren’t jealous, they were so excited for me! They were the first people I called when I found out that I was getting this honor.” It’s like a new Kardashian sister! Does the doppelganger hold a candle to the real thing? Let us know!
