#5′s Claim to Shoe Fame: Every year, fashion footwear king Stuart Weitzman picks a new and rising star, a “Hollywood Cinderella”, to wear his latest multi-million dollar shoes to the Oscars.
In 2008, he selected screenwriter Diablo Cody to wear the $1M heels known as the “Retro Rose” down the Academy Awards red carpet.
Ms. Cody initially agreed to wear them but later backed out after critics questioned her “Indie”, anti-Hollywood cred for participating in a glamorous publicity stunt. She opted to wear an unnamed brand instead.
