We all can agree that Nicki Minaj had to be referring to the Napa Exaggerated-Platform Pump
when she called Giuseppe heel as “the monster shoe”. The five foot two rapper reached new heights literally when she went nude on Good Morning America in these pair of Giuseppe Zanotti heels.
The Italian made patent leather pumps are six inches tall with a 2 ½” platform and have a snipped peep toe. Though the heel is unfussy style the wild factor kicks in when you hit a growth spurt in the matter of seconds just by putting the shoe on. The simple platforms can be found at Neiman Marcus
for $750 dollars in a great nude color, perfect for the ladies how are looking to invest in a staple designer shoe and happen to be vertically challenge. We also found the exaggerated heels at Bergdorf Goodman
in black and blue that is a sling-back style shoe.
Divas are you willing to see the world differently in these Giuseppe’s? Which style do you prefer, or are you not feeling these at all? Let us know below.

It’s extraordinary events such as these that helped to define the values of the Chrysler brand.” - Olivier Francois, Chief Marketing Officer, Chrysler Group LLC.
Thursday night, as a guest of the Chrysler brand - I had the pleasure of enjoying a luxury evening filled with ground travel in the 2013 Chrysler 300, attending a very special preview of MOTOWN: THE MUSICAL as well as the celebrity-filled after party event and Liberty Theater. The preview event, held at the Nederlander Theater hosted MOTOWN: THE MUSICAL producer Kevin McCollum, director Charles Randolph-Wright, Smokey Robinson and Mr. Berry Gordy himself gracing the Nederlander stage to share their enthusiastic joy regarding the show and anticipation of it's release next year. The cast performed select numbers from the musical which included original Motown hits like "Dancing In The Streets"
