Victoria Beckham was stunning in black at the launch of her Fall/Winter 2008 dVb denim collection in Dusseldorf, Germany. She posed for these chic photos at Jades Boutique in her own dramatic designs.
Posh wore an all black suit comprised of a shirt, vest, skinny tie and bell-bottom jeans with ultra-wide cuffs which all but covered her shoes. However, it was Victoria Beckham’s jacket that caught my eye. With sharply flared double-layered sleeves, squared off shoulders, a V-front and short tails in the back, the jacket’s details create an almost vampiric look.

One of the famous people wear this shoes is Madonna. She is catching some heat for wearing Chanel’s gun heel shoes to the NYC screening of her film “Filth and Wisdom” in which the queen of pop (and controversy) made her directorial debut.
Mothers Against Murder And Aggression (MAMAA) which is a murder victim’s group labeled Madonna as “uncaring”.
“Lyn Costello, from MAMAA told Metro: "I am horrified that Madonna can see these shoes as fashion. "As a mother herself I would have thought that she would have paused for a second and thought about all the young people here and in her own country that have died because of gun crime. "It's uncaring. Surely she reads the news and realises that young people are dying every day.”
The shoes debuted on Thursday night at the Chanel resort presentation. They will be available in stores next month.via

Balenciaga brought C3PO leggings into style last season, and for Spring 2009, Nicolas Ghesquière is sticking with the theme with pieces like the galactic tunic. Paired with a longsleeved white shirt, he sent a model down the runway at Paris Fashion Week in a glitzy jumper that looked more like fish scales than a high end dress.
“The genius of Balenciaga is Ghesquière's projection of couture techniques into the world of new technology. A crude stab at describing it might be "sci-fi couture," but the truth is his mind-set renders stock fashion vocabulary redundant. Ghesquière works without references or narrative, pushing experimentation with fabric and cut to the nth degree. Cleverer still is the sense of a grounded core: the recognizable, desirable developments of pants (the evolution of his jodhpurs in mackintosh fabric; the sophisticated motocross shapes), and the precious, shiny, chic bags clutched in every hand.” via

We all know shoes carry sexual connotations in our culture and these Torture Pumps play right into that sexual fetishism. But I insist you’d have to be out of your mind to try to walk in these torture chambers.
