"Uggs can be as chic as heels for women," the Vogue editor-at-large told Styleite. "Uggs are comfort shoes and it's important to have a shoe that gives you a sense of comfort. I have about 15 pair of Uggs — the same shoe, the same color. And I also have the bedroom slippers. It's my shoe of choice at this moment of 2012 — it has been my shoe of choice. I love that you noticed I'm wearing Uggs. And this is a Tom Ford bag." Ugh.
