Posted on July 12 2011Here's the fascinating interview with Top model, fashion icon, actress, DJ and Vivienne Westwood’s muse Tolula Adeyemi exclusively for High Fashion Society, where she shares her latest projects, red carpet moments and her top three wardrobe essentials. Also Tolula donates a pair of her very own shoes in our charity auction. What exciting projects are you currently working on? Any movies in the pipeline? I have just wrapped two films. the first is an independent feature film about the dangers of the internet, the consequences of our actions on cyber space! The second is a "Mockumentary" A documentary style comedy about a gang of pick pocket thieves invading London. The first is filmed in different locations around the world and the second is a very London based film. What has been your most cherished moment in your career so far? The most cherished moments in my career so far has been the times when I have been lucky enough and privileged to do the things I have always wanted to do, such as work with legendary artists and icons in the two industries I work in the most - Fashion and Film. It was pretty special to film alongside Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson when filming my first feature film, Last Chance Harvey. Working and still having the opportunity to work with Vivienne Westwood is just brilliant. I have worked with Kylie Minogue in the past on various projects after shooting her video for 'Two Hearts'. Also just meeting extraordinary people and learning from them to help better myself at what I do, I greatly cherish. Your often seen on the red carpet, what has been your favourite red carpet moment? My favourite red carpet moment was for the premiere of my film Last Chance Harvey. When it's your own film you're walking the red carpet for it's kinda magical and you really appreciate the cause and take pride. I try not to walk the red carpet for the sake of it! What is your secret for keeping your body fabulous and your skin flawless? To keep in shape, I do yoga and I have recently taken up Thai Kick- Boxing. Also drink lots of water and try not to smoke!! What three essentials should every woman have in their wardrobe? 3 essentials for a woman's wardrobe could be a great fitted versatile day dress, a little sexy black dress and a pair of beautiful heels that will be coveted. A wonderful shade of red lipstick is also a must-have. Top style tips: Wear what makes you feel comfortable and happy...then experiment. HIGH-FASHION-SOCIETY.COM? I am donating a pair of tapestry woven style wedged heels from Vivienne Westwood. I wore them only once before during one fashion week, after walking in Vivienne Westwood's show and I wore them to ‘Another Magazine’ party at the Double-Club. I love them, but I think someone else should enjoy them, they are basically brand new! All the proceeds from the sale of these shoes will go to the Kids Company Charity which supports vulnerable inner city children. Start bidding now!

Posted on January 19 2011Over the past few years,Christian Louboutin heels have become the ultimate fashion accessory. Whether it’s the signature red soles or the killer 5 inch heels, there’s just something about Louboutins that makes every girl swoon. Although many have attempted to copy, a real Louboutin is something special that just can’t be recreated. Sure, the pricetag is quite steep, but it’s the price to pay for true craftsmanship and luxury materials. Facts about Louboutin and his shoes: * The designer was freelancing for a bunch of big fashion labels, when he decided on a change of career and became a landscape designer in 1989. In 1992 he returned to his passion with his own eponymous label. * The red sole was inspired by an employee’s red nails. * There are 12 Louboutin boutiques worldwide * The cult Pigalle is the most popular model for the brand, exists in many different heights, materials and colours and has graced the feet of about every celebrity. See a little selection below! * Last year, the brand launched www.stopfakelouboutin.com to stop the massive amount of cheap counterfeits, usually coming out of Asia. As they say themselves: if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Buy the real thing! At High Fashion Society we ensure that all items are authentic, by getting them checked by experts and by only accepting top quality items. Right now we are proud to have a pair of genuine pre-owned black patent Pigalle 120 heels in the shop, as well as some other models. Check them out in our shoe section here.
Here are some of our favourite celebrities spotted wearing the Louboutin Pigalles:
