Video: Christina Kim swings from her heels

May 18, 2010

There's never a dull moment when Christina Kim is in the room. She hosted a book launch party at Chelsea Piers in New York City last night, and she succeeded at entertaining all the guests invited.

Kim lived up to the title of her book, "Swinging From My Heels." In the video I shot below, you'll see the amazing speed she generated while swinging on top of four-inch Rene Caovilla stilettos. (She bought them in Dubai, along with nine other pairs.)

At the party, Kim said the last two things she'd call herself are "author" and "athlete." I disagree, but I'd add "dull" and "demure" to that list.
