Los Angeles, CA, United States (CNS) – Ashanti hit New York Fashion Week this week and while she seemed happy about it, her shoes said otherwise.
The 30-year-old R&B singer hit the BCBG Max Azria fashion show to support one of her favorite designers, even sporting a leopard print BCBG Max Azria dress for the occasion.
She also sported some offensive footwear: the “F U” pumps by designer Massimo Dogana. The black, open-toed high heels feature the design of a woman’s manicured hand giving the middle finger.
As if that didn’t send enough of a message, “F*** You!” is written right there on the show, making these the most appropriate footwear for break-ups, shake-ups, or dancing behind Cee-Lo Green during a performance.
Some might consider the price for the “F U” pumps to be even more offensive. Those shoes retail for over $1,000.
Ashanti was front row at the runway show, where she flipped the bird to fellow celebs Jennifer Love Hewitt, Taraji P. Henson, singer Kelly Rowland, “30 Rock” star Katrina Bowden and model Maggie Rizer.
