Going Gaga over new fragrance


There have been many moments we've collectively shaken our heads at Lady Gaga's fashion tragedies but I've got to admit, this moment was pure genius.

Gaga stepped out in Paris on the weekend wearing a pair of her trademark super-high black pumps, with a twist. The heels are modeled like the bottle of her new fragrance aptly named Fame.

The pumps feature the same four claws that appear on the lid of the fragrance which is the first ever black coloured fragrance, apparently becoming colourless once airborne.

While some celebs might don a T-Shirt to launch their fragrance it seems fitting (with a dash of PR brilliance)that Lady Gaga would wear shoes that represent her new perfume bottle.

Add a black turtleneck and some white feathers and she's in business. At the time of publishing this piece there is no word on who designed these stilts but I've no doubt we'll find out in the coming weeks.

Tara Moss talks shoes & Assassin, her sixth & final Mak installment

The author of 8 bestselling novels, including the Mak Vanderwall crime series and Pandora English paranormal series. She is published in 18 countries, in 12 languages. She is a journalist, blogger, TV presenter, UNICEF Ambassador, wife and mother.

With the release of her final Mak installment, Assassin, (the sixth in the series) we celebrate this Siren’s fondness for stilettos.

What makes you a dedicated Shoe Addict?

In researching my first novel Fetish, about a killer with a penchant for stilettos, I think I inadvertently gave myself a shoe fetish. I own perhaps fifty pairs of shoes.

Your favourite pair and why?

It is impossible to choose, but my fifteen year old black satin YSL evening shoes & my red Manolo Blahniks have to be up there.

Your shoe philosophy?

The higher the heels, the closer to God.

And Assassin?

Former model turned forensic psychologist and PI Mak Vanderwall is missing, presumed dead in Paris. By hiring a hit man to kill her, the powerful and corrupt Cavanagh family aimed to silence her for good. But after narrowly escaping death, Mak has taken over her would-be killer′s world.

She is very much alive.

And transformed …

Back in Sydney Mak′s former flame, criminal profiler Andy Flynn is on the trail of a vicious rapist and murderer with possible ties to the infamous ′Stiletto Killer′. He may have struck before and will certainly do so again. And while Andy struggles to cope in a world without Mak, little does he realise she is on her way back. And this time she′s ready to make her own justice.
