"I take it all back: LONG LIVE the Ugg boot!"
--Vogue Italia EIC Franca Sozzani heaped high praise on the footwear that's more often met with disdain by fashion folks. Sozzani, stuck in a blizzard-hit Paris (can I be stuck in a blizzard in Paris, too?), blogged about the necessity of Uggs and down puffer coats, items that might be otherwise considered fashion faux pas. Sozzani's fellow Italian fashionista, Giovanna Battaglia, does not share the same sentiments regarding Ugg boots but she had to wear them recently too, after breaking her pinky toe. Her reaction? "I broke my pinky toe! :-( So no more heels" she tweeted. "For 10 days, but the most painful thing is that today I was forced to buy UGG." To each their own! But it's nice to see the editrix of Italian Vogue embracing comfort.
