Cody Refuses To Wear Weitzman Shoes To The Oscars

LATEST: Oscar winner DIABLO CODY chose to wear her own shoes to the Academy Awards on Sunday night (24Feb08) after turning down the chance to wear designer STUART WEITZMAN's 'million dollar shoes'. The Juno screenwriter balked at the idea of wearing Weitzman's shoes after realising she had become a pre-Oscars publicity figure, insisting she had no idea the footwear crafted especially for her were the fabled Kwait diamond items celebrities have been selected to wear to the Academy Awards since 2002. In a furious posting on her MySpace.com website last week (22Feb08), Cody fumed, "I'm actually really p**sed about this... They're using me to publicise their stupid shoes and NOBODY ASKED ME. I would never consent to a lame publicity stunt at a time when I already want to hide." And she stuck to her promise, leaving the Weitzman shoes at home and hitting the Oscars red carpet in a cheaper pair. After her Best Original Screenplay win, Cody added, "It was the silliest thing. Nobody asked me, nobody talked to me, it was just this crate in the room with my name on it. "(I wore my) regular shoes... I'm actually not sure (how much they cost), but I'm sure it is nowhere near a million dollars. If I had a million dollars I would help people."
