An Yves Saint Laurent Tribute and well-heeled fund-raiser to fight cancer in women
Yves Saint Laurent's famous Tribute platform sandal has been redone in fetching -- and symbolic -- hot pink, a show of support in the effort to find a cure for women's gynecological and breast cancers.
YSL created the suede slippers, dubbed the Pink Party Tribute Heel, exclusively for Pacific Palisades boutique Elyse Walker — in homage to Walker's longtime support of cancer research for women.
One hundred dollars from the sale of the pink pumps, which are on sale now at ElyseWalker.com for $995, will be donated to Cedars-Sinai Women's Cancer Research Institute.
The sale of the pink Tributes is kicking off fund-raising efforts for the sixth annual Pink Party, a benefit founded by Walker in support of the institute. The event, which will take place at Drai's Hollywood nightclub on Sept. 25, will be hosted by Jennifer Garner. Since its inception five years ago, the charity has raised more than $4 million for the cause.
The kicky heels — only available while supplies last — come in a lower heel (3 inches) for us rational gals, and a towering 4-inch heel for girls who like to live on the edge (but not tip over).
