Ugg Enlists Blahnik, Falchi and Minkoff for St. Jude's




    For its seventh annual Art & Sole Benefit Auction for St. Jude's Cancer Research Hospital, Ugg Australia will hawk high-end designer special editions from the likes of Manolo Blahnik, Carlos Falchi and Rebecca Minkoff. 

    Previously, the bootmaker's charity cases have come from entertainment luminaries and celebs, but this year will introduce handiwork of a different kind. (Sidebar: It's pretty interesting that Blahnik is refusing to have any of his shoes in "Sex and the City 2" because it's made his name so mainstream, yet he seems perfectly pleased to collaborate with an L.A.-trendy boot brand like Ugg. Well, it is for charity.) The styles will be available online at from December 1-14, with proceeds, of course, benefitting the hospital.
