• In yet another bout of flawlessness, Beyoncé presented her tribute to Stuart Weitzman and his Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2012 Footwear News Achievement Awards. The superstar says she has always admired his work and the comfort of his heels, while having danced a 1,000 miles in the designer’s shoes. Congrats, Stuart! Now, Bey, would you mind sharing a full photo of this ‘fit? (YouTube)
