All About Tina at Armani... Manolo Blahnik Heads to Broadway...

After her under-the-radar appearance last week at Emporio Armani, Tina Turner attended the designer’s signature show on Monday.

FIT FOR A QUEEN: Bette Midler’s new Broadway show “Priscilla Queen of the Desert The Musical” has a leg-up on the competition thanks to some enviable product placement. Manolo Blahnik unveiled a silver patent leather Mary Jane heel, which was inspired by the musical, at the show’s first preview Monday. Will Swenson, Tony Sheldon and Nick Adams star as three drag queens traipsing across the Australian outback with a giant 15-foot-high Manolo Blahnik stiletto on the top of their bus. The traditionally sized heel will be sold at the Manolo Blahnik flagship, and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the shoes and a specially designed silver necklace will benefit Midler’s charity the New York Restoration Project. “If there are three things I love it is shoes, drag queens and live theater,” said Midler.
