Black cat sticking her tongue out and wearing a pair of mismatched shoes

Our black feline beauty here seems to have taken a fancy to some gorgeous footwear!

She may be wearing it wrong by human norms and should be donning them over her hind paws, but our beautiful feline friend here does have quite a taste for exquisite footwear, don’t you think? The photo above was actually taken by American photographers Joseph Leombruno and Jack Bodi (1918-1986) — credited as Leombruno - Bodi — for the December 1955 issue of Vogue (view an enlarged spread here).

Vogue and the fashion world’s fascination with felines doesn’t begin or end with this 1955 issue; you can take a look at a fascinating feature about cats and Vogue here!

    Fresh From the Lab: Take Off Your Socks and Shoes - It's Summertime!

    Every year, just a few weeks before summer, I dedicate a series of photos to the joy of living outdoors in this good season. One of the most common pleasures is taking one's socks and shoes off to feel the first warm rays of sun on our pale feet, which were prisoners inside shoes throughout the long winter season. So, it's time to take off your socks and shoes and relax barefoot! Where? Of course, on the walls surrounding the beautiful lake! Take a look!
