She is one cool mama. Fergie Duhamel gave birth to son Axl last fall and hasn’t missed a step when it comes to creating her rock ’n’ roll-inspired footwear line with Brown Shoe Co. “We are loving gladiator styles with lace-up detailing and mixed media on sportier soles,” the namesake told Footwear News of her spring ’15 collection. “There’s also a great high-tech story that adds touches of luminescent vinyl in animal prints and colors.” For this holiday season, she is crafting a limited-edition red suede heel. The songstress also hinted that she’s back in the studio and more music could be coming soon. Here, a few confessions about her love for the “Dog Whisperer” and Sophia Loren.
Style icon: “Sophia Loren is a timeless beauty. Stylish, graceful and sexy.”
Guilty pleasure: “Reality TV is my guilty pleasure. I still love Cesar Millan, the ‘Dog Whisperer.’”
The movie I can watch on repeat: “‘The Godfather.’ [Marlon] Brando, [Al] Pacino — it’s a classic.”
Coolest time period: “The late 1960s was an incredible time of change, peace, love and war. It was also an amazing era for music that has lasted decades.”
You’ll never see me in … “Crocs. When I wear casual styles, I prefer flat sandals or moto boots, something with more of an edge.”
Favorite family activity: “Playing music, singing and dancing with Axl.”
