PUMP IT
Rocking out in 6-inch platforms on stage might be second nature to Fergie, but building her footwear lines with Brown Shoe Co. forced the songstress to see her pumps from a different angle. “I [came in with] a duffle bag and crumpled magazine cutouts, [and] I just dumped shoes that I liked on the conference room table,” Fergie said of her initial sit-down with Brown execs to create the Fergie and Fergalicious labels. “I’ll always remember that meeting. It was baby steps — baby steps in stilettos.” Now Fergie, who was in New York last week to join the FN Shoe Star judges’ panel, is learning what it’s like on the other side of the table. “I was tearing up,” she said of judging the fourth challenge, which is set to air on FNshoestar.com next month. “The [contestants] invested in me, and to put them down in any way is hard. Don’t get me wrong, I’m opinionated, but this became really emotional.”
