The stiletto is a style icon of the 20th and 21st centuries. Its seductive power has attracted a kalaeidoscope of women from Italian and Hollywood starlets Gina Lollobrigida and Marilyn Monroe to fetishists, punks, powerful business women, and sassy glamour celebrities - Madonna, J. Lo, and the Sex and the City girls. The stiletto has also attracted the world's greatest designers, from Vivier, Perugia, and Ferragamo in the 1950s to Vivienne Westwood and Terry de Havilland in the 1970s, and the must-have designer labels of today - Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Gina, and Christian Louboutin. Stiletto is a fun, comprehensive, and insightful homage to the stiletto and its long relationship with sex, power, femininity, fashion, and fetishism.
