Outside the Shoe Box! Liberace's Fabulous Footwear

Never underestimate a man in heels!

The Liberace Museum in Las Vegas features the fabulous footwear of Liberace. Selected shoes and boots from the Liberace costume collection dating from 1966 through 1983 epitomize Liberace’s distinctive and inimitable style. This special exhibition salutes and celebrates a pioneering performer who knew how to dress the part. On display are Liberace’s American flag inspired oxfords designed for his famous 1970’s hot-pants costume; a rare look at an archetypical Liberace-style sneaker; a blue knee-high boot with beads, rhinestones and edged with mink fur and enough sparkle to sanction Liberace his due as the King of Bling. Karan Feder, an award-winning Hollywood costume designer and fashion designer is guest curator. She interprets the collection with good humour and historical respect. Outside the Shoe Box! Liberace’s Fabulous Footwear runs from September 10, 2006 – January 7, 2007. The Liberace Museum is at1775 East Tropicana Avenue, Las Vegas, Nevada, US.
