Like every girl, Vanessa Minnillo is obsessed with shoes. So how many pairs does she have? “Too many,” she tells PEOPLE at the Reebok Shoe and Apparel event. “I don’t have any numbers, but I do know that my closet is overflowing — and now I have to put them in the guest room!” Vanessa defends a woman’s right to shoes as a way to express her personality. Her motto? Different shoes for different moods. And how does live-in boyfriend Nick Lachey feel about her obsession? The singer may be like just about every other guy when it comes to himself, owning only black and brown dress shoes and multiple pairs of sneakers. But when it comes to her, he definitely doesn’t mind high heels taking over their living quarters. Vanessa even calls on him sometimes when selecting her footwear, but that doesn’t mean she always follows his advice. “He will go, ‘I think that one’, but then I will go with the other one!” she laughs.

THIS GIRL HAS NO SESNE OF STYLE.

Toni on

This bubble head girl is so shallow, silly, and lacks maturity. There is so much going on in the world and she talks about her over abundance of shoes. She and Nick must have interesting and lackluster conversations. Faux valley girls need education, too.

I THINK VANESSA IS GORGEOUS….AND A GOOD MATCH FOR NICK….THEY MAKE A GREAT COUPLE….THEY LOOK LIKE THEY R TRULY IN LOVE….IM HAPPY HE IS WELL RID OF JESSICA AND HER DAD….AND IM SURE HE’S GLAD HE’S RID OF THEM…..

Brooke on

This section is about STYLE, and that’s why she was talking about fashion. Her comments don’t make her immature. People need to get over themselves, and instead of wasting time dissing somebody that just wants to follow her dreams, they themselves to focus attention on what’s important. If you want to talk about world events, don’t post comments in PEOPLE-OFF THE RACK section!

I agree with Brooke. Complaining about how “shallow” and “immature” a celebrity is just because they’re talking about fashion on a STYLE blog is just hypocrisy.
