Christine Quinn is embarking on her first fashion collaboration.
The real estate agent, who stars in the Netflix reality TV show “Selling Sunset,” is teaming with ShoeDazzle for a collection of footwear styles made for the upcoming holiday season.
“I just love the affordability factor of it,” Quinn said about ShoeDazzle. “It’s not every day that you can find cool shoes that are actually done really well, so for me that’s what I really loved about the collection.”
The collection offers 24 footwear styles across heels and boots. With the holiday season coming up, Quinn wanted to offer options that were festive, but also worked for the colder months.
“We’re working around the fact that it’s November and December, so we’re trying to keep it concurrent with the trends for fall,” she said. “I wanted to do a lot of sparkles and I wanted to incorporate bows and just glitter anywhere I could so it gave that holiday vibe.”

This holiday vibe is seen in many of the collection’s sparkle-embellished pieces, such as a pair of thigh-high boots designed in a silver shimmer finish, crystal-embellished black pumps, high-heeled boots with crystal fringe and colorful pumps with a wrap around silver detail.
While many heritage fashion brands cemented their position in the color world early on in their history — think Tiffany blue, Hermès orange and Christian Louboutin red — Bottega Veneta’s signature bright green hue, referred to as “Bottega Green,” is a new development courtesy of now-departing creative director, Daniel Lee.
Lee, who revealed on Wednesday he is stepping down from his role in a surprise announcement, is credited with infusing a fresh dose of modernity and youthfulness into Bottega Veneta during his three-year tenure. The fashion designer has introduced a lengthy list of memorable styles into the brand, including several “It” bags and highly coveted shoes.
“Bottega Green” is another of Lee’s most memorable style contributions from during his time at the heritage design house, and one of his newer introductions.
The designer introduced the hue during Bottega Veneta’s spring 2021 ready-to-wear collection presented in December to a socially distant crowd in a venue that was lit in the “Bottega Green” color. The first look in the collection was also a monochromatic “Bottega Green” outfit consisting of a tweed skirt suit and matching mules. Lee also presented a similar “Bottega Green” fitted tweed jacket with matching slides and handbag.

Fashion designer Daniel Lee revealed today that he would be leaving Bottega Veneta after more than three years as the design house’s creative director.
Lee has been highly praised for his work at Bottega Veneta since 2019, injecting the heritage brand with a fresh dose of modernity and youthfulness with his many sleek and playful accessories that have become some of the brand’s most popular items. His designs inspired a popular Instagram account, @newbottega, which documented the designer’s new and highly coveted designs. Over the last three years, the account has accumulated a following of more than 870,000.
Arguably Lee’s most ubiquitous design for Bottega Veneta is the signature Pouch bag, which was introduced in his first collection with the design house in 2019. The bag became an instant favorite among influencers, fashion industry executives and customers and has been described as one of the newest “It” bags.
Lee followed the Pouch bag — which now comes in a plethora of colors, sizes and styles — with several other memorable styles across handbags and shoes and even with a bright shade of green, which has since been dubbed “Bottega green.”

Congratulations are in order for Ivy Getty and Tobias Engel who tied the knot over the weekend.
The heiress, the great-granddaughter of billionaire oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, married Engel, a photographer, in a lavish wedding held in San Francisco’s City Hall and officiated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The weekend reportedly involved a star-studded guest list that included Anya Taylor-Joy and California Gov. Gavin Newsom, and a 1960s-themed bash at the Palace of Fine Arts.
Getty wore a custom wedding gown designed by John Galliano for Maison Margiela Haute Couture, which featured four layers and shards of real broken mirrors, and shoes by Christian Louboutin. Her bridal party, including Taylor-Joy who was her maid of honor, also wore dresses by Galliano.
“A little over a year, 18 dresses, many laughs, teas and hugs later. Thank you @jgalliano and @maisonmargiela for making the two most beautiful wedding gowns I have ever laid eyes on,” Getty wrote on Instagram. “Working with you John has been such a pleasure. You, @lexyroche and @ilardoraf_ are family to me and I am so grateful to have been able to see the love and true artistic value and thought you put into making all my gowns and bridal
An auction of Amy Winehouse’s performance dresses and accessories brought in $4 million this weekend.
Hosted by Julien’s Auctions, the auction included more than 800 of the late singer’s performance dresses, accessories and other apparel to benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, one of the leading charities in the U.K. supporting young people.
Known for her retro style, the auction included dresses, bustiers, handbags and shoes from designer brands like Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana, Hermès, Miu Miu, Giorgio Armani and Fred Perry.
One of the most notable sales during the auction was of Winehouse’s bamboo and floral print silk halter dress — which was custom-made by her stylist Naomi Parry — that she wore during her last stage performance in Belgrade in 2011 right before her untimely death. The dress went for $243,200, 15 times the original estimated price of $15,000.

The purse sold for $204,800, which was 13 times the original estimated price of $15,000. A floral gold lamé dress by Dolce & Gabbana Winehouse wore on stage also went 30 times the original estimated
Virgil Abloh is making another shoe for Nike.
On Monday, it was reported that Off-White was creating an iteration of the Air Force 1 Mid. Though little is known so far, the shoe will come in two colorways — white and black — and be released in the spring of 2022 at a price of $185.
The first image was released by an Instagram user who goes by the handle @die_sel666, an apparent sneaker enthusiast account that provides “first looks” at new and upcoming shoes.

Abloh, Off-White’s chief executive officer, has collaborated with Nike numerous times to create shoes for his own fashion label and also for Louis Vuitton, as the artistic director for the men’s fashion.
The designer began by reinventing 10 models of Nike sneakers for his initial “The Ten” project in 2017, and has kept a steady pace of drops since. Nike and Off-White have also developed clothing, including custom outfits for tennis star Serena Williams.
In June, Abloh created new versions of Nike’s iconic Air Force 1 trainers developed in tandem with Louis Vuitton. The shoes, designed in 21 colorways, were unveiled as part of Abloh’s spring 2022
