Info 1
I think there is no woman who would be left a new pair of shoes. High heels enthusiasts should go to the Brooklyn Museum for the exhibition "Killer Heels". The exhibition includes, among others, Marilyn Monroe`pins and seventeenth-century shoes from France.

"Killer Heels" at New York's Brooklyn Museum is not only a treat for fans of high heels and fetishists. The exhibition, organized in one of the oldest art museums in the United States, will be shown both Christian Louboutin`s famous red soles, Iris van Herpen`s unusual designs, Prada and Vivienne Westwood, as well as French silk shoes from the seventeenth century. Collected 160 pairs, and among the exhibits also find pins belonging to Marilyn Monroe.
