Stars Rock the Emmy's in Peep-Toe Platforms

’s hottest starlets shined at the recent Emmy Awards in their sparkling jewels and intricate
gowns. But, the most important accessory of the night was definitely the footwear! A huge trend for fall is peep-toe platforms.

While celebrities like Stephanie Pratt and Mindy Kaling opted for a more classic look with jet black peep-toes, other stars like Lo Bosworth, Carrie Preston and Eva LaRue dazzled in lighter shades of silver and beige.

Donald J Pliner’s fall collection features super hot peep-toe platforms that look just like the ones the stars wore last night at the 2010 Emmys, but at much more affordable prices!

Donald J Pliner shoes are available at DonaldJPliner.com, and at department stores Bloomingdales, Nordstrom and Dillard’s.

One of Fashion's Most Embarrassing Dilemmas Solved!

With the return of fall fashions, inevitably there will be a return of leggings and skinny jeans. These styles often lead to an embarrassing problem - camel toe.

"Camel toe" is the result of tight clothing clinging a bit too closely to a woman's private region - hence revealing a shape that resembles a camel's toe. Today's fashions - including leggings with shorter shirts, skinny jeans and other tight pants or shorts and the fact that it is even more fashionable in some circles to go bare 'down there' - makes it easier for camel toe to creep up

CamelNot eliminates camel toe by smoothing and camouflaging this problem area. It is a comfortable, light-weight pad that adheres to your undergarment and eliminates camel toe. CamelNot can be worn with or without underwear and it also helps to keep the undergarment clean.

To wear CamelNot, place into your underwear, leggings or shorts, narrow side facing down, and adjust. CamelNot will stay secure all day while flattening out any embarrassing issues.

With CamelNot, you can wear leggings or skinny jeans without having to worry about the fashion police.
