She was the runway reporter for Vogue.com, covering all international and couture collections.

Manolo BlahnÕk, whose career spans more than thirty years, is one of the world’s most celebrated and imaginative footwear designers. His shoes have enchanted an international set of adoring and loyal devotees around the globe. Born in the Canary Islands and later educated in Geneva, he moved in 1965 to Paris, where he intended a career in theatre design. On a visit to New York in 1970, he met with the legendary editor in chief of American Vogue, Diana Vreeland, who told him, “Do shoes.” He has been doing so expertly ever since—on the runway, the red carpet, and in every girl’s wildest dreams.
