Comfort Matters

“These are the highest heels I’ve ever worn,” said Kelly Rutherford (below) of the sky-high, black peep-toe Jessica Simpson heels she sported for the “DSW Presents: Step Up and Step Out” charity event, held at the W Hotel in New York on Sept. 26. The “Gossip Girl” star was happy to talk footwear with Insider in between fielding other reporters’ questions about her bitter divorce battle. “[Being a mom], it’s important for me to have comfortable shoes,” she said, citing Tod’s, Lanvin and Havaianas as some of her go-to brands. Lately, the actress has also been snapping up infant styles from Sue London for her three-month old daughter, Helena. Rutherford joined event host and TV personality Vanessa Minnillo and DSW spokeswoman Bobbie Thomas — as well as more than a thousand other female footwear fanatics — for the fundraiser, which included a champagne brunch and designer shoe sale. In addition to DSW’s in-house label, select styles from Manolo Blahnik, Stella McCartney, Chinese Laundry and other big names were up for grabs, at deeply discounted prices. Proceeds from the event (some $300,000, organizers estimated) were donated to the Step Up Women’s Network, which provides resources for teen girls in underserved communities.
