Four Inches - the nearest I've got
Blast just tried to buy a copy of Four Inches by Tamara Mellon on Amizon but they will not ship it to Australia for some reason. Drat! The book contains a collection of naked photographs of supermodels and celebs wearing only their Jimmy Coo high heels and Cartier diamonds . At the book launch several years ago Jimmy Choo was the host and auctioned the original plates to raise money for Sir Elton John's AIDS foundation. A pair of Ellen von Unwerth's shots of Elle Macpherson raised $76,000, while the Kate Moss photo by Sam Taylor Wood went for $57,000. While neither model could make the party, their fellow posers Rebecca Romijn, Rachel Hunter and Minnie Driver were there to chase up the bids. Sadly Paris Hilton had no luck – her picture failed to sell despite her promise to kiss the winning bidder. Mellon had the idea for the book because she loves coffee table books and wanted one of her own. Pity she could not get me one too.
