A crowd of supermodels and a number of great names from Italy’s fashion industry attended the 50th anniversary celebration of the iconic Pirelli Calendar in Milan earlier this month.
Karolina Kurkova, who has been featured in the calendar twice (2003 and 2004), was also in attendance. She was hard to ignore in a black-and-white androgynous number that included a tuxedo jacket with a bow tie. And being the model that she is, Karolina flaunted her gorgeous figure in mini leather shorts.

To add even more height, Karolina perfected her black carpet look by wearing a pair of towering heels from Salvatore Ferragamo’s Fall 2011 Collection. The sparkling heels are embellished with Swarovski crystals from the pointed toes down the to high heels.

Earlier that day at the press conference for Pirelli Calendar’s anniversary celebration, the former Victoria’s Secret Angel showed off her endless legs — this time in a miniskirt. She sported a navy turtle-neck top and a black-and-navy blazer, all from the Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2013 Collection. Even her shoes are from the same line. Karolina just loves the brand, huh?

Her pumps are made of textured leather. We love the pointed silhouette of these pumps as well as the inverted triangular ankle cuffs that connect the t-straps to the vamps. Aside from the cuffs, these pumps also have ankle tie fastening. Heels measuring about 3.3 inches complete this pair.

We couldn’t find this textured/woven version, but we found the same design in patent leather. We’ve previously spotted Gia Coppola wearing the same style.

Days before the event, Karolina Kurkova returned to her homeland, Czech Republic, for the Fashion for Kids charity event. And yet again, her prized assets were on full display. She donned a white Fendi mini dress that features studded embellishments in a grid pattern. While a pair of sexy strappy heels could’ve looked better with the dress, her tri-tone Fendi pumps added extra glam to her ensemble.

The heels come in a tri-tone design featuring a combination of black patent, textured silver, and textured bronze. They also have about 1 1/4 inch platforms with the Fendi logo and about 5 inch heels, which added even more height to Karolina’s already statuesque figure.
