Miss America Pageant Invites Everyone To ‘show Us Your Shoes’

DivyaA hunts, kills and preps all the animals she uses for her projects on her own. Shes been featured in Vice, 24 Hour Catwalk andAMy Strange Addiction (where her addiction was, naturally, picking up dead animals).AThough she graduated from Pratt with a degree in fashion and sculpture, she has instead opted to take her addiction thing to a business Why Men Don’t Wear High Heels level. During an interview with Bedford and Bowery , Divya actually designed a pair of taxidermy shoes right in front of the writers: The shoe is extreme a open toe, covered in silver scales, with a dramatically curved six-inch heel a evenAwithoutAthe sparrow on the back of the right heel, surrounded by smoky quartz crystals. aI want to have crystals growing out of the shoe, and this sparrow flying in, to really make it all about movement,a Divya said. According to Divya, this type of fashion has become increasingly popular very recently.AaEven just a few years back, the mentality was athis is really gross,aa says Divya. aNow, itas like, aThis is really fucking cool.aa Well, I wouldnt go so far as to presume that this is really fucking cool, but I do think taxidermy itself is interesting as a concept (albeit I am more fond of it happening with already-dead animals).

They needed a break and were wearing bedroom slippers, Best said. The guests could look into the cars and could see that the girls werent wearing any shoes, so they started shouting Show us your shoes. This chant caused the contestants to raise their feet so the viewers on ground level could also see what they were wearing on their feet. So, each year, the new contestants started dressing up their shoes and it became a tradition, Best said. Now, one of our main goals is to carry on those traditions. While the pageant was held in Las Vegas, there were no parades in conjunction with the pageant. One year, there was a shoe walk through a casino, but that was it, Best said.
