In 2011, Kristin Cavallari designed her first shoe for a company called Shoe Dazzle, which was founded by Kim Kardashian. Kristin discussed this accomplishment in an interview with CosmoGIRL!, in which she revealed that she named the shoe after her “style icon”:

CosmoGIRL!: Tell us about your shoe design for ShoeDazzle and what inspired you to create it?

Kristin Cavallari: I designed a wedge because I wanted a great spring/summer shoe. I loved the fuchsia color, for my first shoe I wanted to make a statement, so it seemed perfect.

CosmoGIRL!: What was the inspiration for naming the shoe Bardot?

Kristin Cavallari: Bridgette Bardot is my style icon, so I thought Bardot was the perfect name.

Kristin also has a dog named Bardot. It’s a Yorkie.

This has been 500 Days of Kristin.
