Vanessa Lachey can now add “Celebrity Shoe Designer” to her extensive list of achievements. As part of ShoeDazzle’s “Celebrity Shoe Design Program for Charity” Vanessa has opted to support Operation Shower, an awesome non-profit organization that throws baby showers for women who are expecting babies while their husbands are deployed. Vanessa told ShoeDazzle about her own experience with the military; “Growing up my father was in the Air Force, so I have an understanding of what it’s like to have a loved one overseas during life’s biggest events.” There’s an extra “awww-factor” since Vanessa herself is expecting so soon– from one mom-to-be to another, with love!
Speaking of love, let’s talk about this shoe. Inspired by Marilyn Monroe’s daring style and her devoted support of our troops, Vanessa christened her shoe ‘Monroe’ designed with the military in mind. The faux snakeskin, high-heeled bootie has a steep platform and multiple buckles for a hard edge that channels the tough aesthetic of a training camp combined with a very sexy style that is still ultra feminine. Vanessa calls it “a fun and fashionable way to support the military” and we couldn’t agree more. Gets your pair on ShoeDazzle.com starting August 7th. All proceeds go to charity!
