In summer time, like many Australians, I live in my thongs. No, not the undergarment, but those rubber Y-shape outdoor shoes named "thongs", "flip-flops", "jandals" or "pluggers". Call them what you will, these rubber sandals have taken the world by storm, particularly in recent years with Havaianas taking world domination of summer shoe fashion.
Celebrities LOVE Havaianas Too
So what do Celebs like Paris Hilton, Ashley Tisdale, Megan Fox, Nicole Ritchie, Jennifer Aniston, Rachel Bilson & others like about Havaianas? Traditionally, Havaianas don’t lose shape, don’t smell (that’s important!) and straps don’t get loose, but also what they love about them is their up-beat mood and real colour explosion in designs.
Back in 1962 when the now popular international thong brand Havaianas was created, nobody could imagine that styles inspired by the Zori, typical Japanese sandals, would be sooo huge for years and eventually become an ultimate casual footwear must have for Hollywood A-listers.
New Havaianas prints, colors and models appear almost every year, but there’s one thing I’m 100% sure about – these Brazilian Thongs keep winning hearts of many Tinseltown citizens. Check out other Celebs who heart Havaianas: Britney Spears, Heidi Klum, Kate Hudson, Natalie Portman, Anna Kournikova, Gwen Stefani, Kate Bosworth, Jessica Biel, Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen, Lindsay Lohan, Eva Longoria, Jessica Simpson, Anne Hathaway, Charlize Theron, Christina Ricci, Nicole Kidman, Jewel, Monica Bellucci, Salma Hayek, Eva Mendes, Alyssa Milano, Jennifer Love Hewitt & Stacy Keibler all love the stylish comfort of their Havaianas.
So don't waste any time, you may not be a Celebrity yet, but you can look & feel like one by BIDDING NOW & grab a pair before they're gone!!!!!!

Thinking it’s the Oscar feel, as exclusive models of Havaianas have been given to Oscar nominees since 2003. Wearing these thongs is almost like winning an Oscar! That must be a great tease for young Hollywood starlets like Hayden Pannittiere, Michelle Trachtenberg and others.
Did you guys know that Havaianas only set foot in the Australia 13 years ago & the USA only 2 years ago? Seems like we’ve been wearing them forever! Celebrity favorite Havaianas sells in more than 60 countries worldwide. Not bad, heh? Lots of other celebrities have been spotted wearing great fashionable thongs by Havaianas lately.
Examples of Celebrities wearing Havaianas recently include: Christina Aguilera wore Black Havaianas Thongs while shooting a public service announcement for World Hunger Relief in Los Angeles. Michelle Trachtenberg also wore a pair of Havaianas Thongs backstage. Gwen Stefani wore White Havaianas Thongs while at Bristol Farms with baby in tow.
Havaianas You come to realise the power of great branding when Google becomes a synonym for "search" & similarly, when people collectively refer to all "thongs" as Havaianas or just “Havies” in Australia. A report by "Latin Trade" speaks of Brazil's trademark shoe as 'once the exclusive footwear of housekeepers, peasants, dockworkers and other poor people' "Havaianas today is a Brazilian icon as Swatch is for Switzerland and Coke for the U.S.," says Rut Porto, communication director for Sao Paulo, Alpargatas, the sporting goods and industrial fabric company that manufactures the thongs.
In 1994, Sao Paulo Alpargatas decided to market the Thongs to Brazil's previously stand-offish bourgeoisie. "We eliminated the middle class's shame of wearing Havaianas," explains Porto. The basic Thong remained the same, but new styles were introduced in numerous colours, and prints, with the soles made thicker and more comfortable, launched with an advertising campaign showing celebrities wearing the shoes in an effort to appeal to middle-class buyers rather than being associated simply with working-class people.
As the Thongs were taken up by opinion leaders and stars such as Jennifer Aniston and surf champion Kelly Slater, it became socially acceptable to wear them in an ever-wider variety of circumstances. They even appeared on the runway during a John Paul Gaultier show and in the gift bags received by actors at the 2003 Oscars.
Havaianas were launched in Australia 13 years ago & have single handedly made rubber thongs a socially acceptable fashion icon. This simple product made in Brazil from a secret Brazilian rubber formula since 1962, has become known for its butter soft & flexible durability. 48 years later, Havaianas have turned into a worldwide phenomenon & the most successful product made in Brazil. No other product can lay claim to be worn so proudly by both the rich & poor, the average Joe & the famous celebrity. No wonder it has been called the best rubber thong in the world.
