These retro heels Weitzman designed in a 1940s style with a signature t-strap of that era are valued at $1 million. The rose ornaments on the toes are made of 100 carats of 1,800 Kwiat diamonds. Aside from the rose ornaments, there are 400 more Kwiat diamonds incorporated into the shoes themselves. These heels created quite a stir at the 2008 Oscars when Weitzman selected screenwriter Diablo Cody, nominee for best original screenplay for her movie "Juno," to wear the shoes. Cody, who won the Oscar that night, refused to wear the shoes and told reporters that being selected to wear the shoes was a "cheesy publicity stunt."
