The actress recently collaborated with ShoeDazzle to design a pair of heels as part of the brand’s Celebrity Shoe Design Program for Charity, which will help raise funds to fight kidney cancer.

This is the second time Richards is teaming up with ShoeDazzle for the celebrity program, which had earlier roped in celebrities including Jennie Garth, Jenny McCarthy, Perez Hilton, Carmen Electra, Mel B and La La Antony, who all raised funds for various other foundations.

Richards’ shoes, named “Denise,” are light pink, strappy and are glittered with a lot of crystal embellishments. They are priced at $47.95 and are available on ShoeDazzle.com.

For this design, Richards collaborated with 13-year-old Taylor Filorimo – known as Tay – who passed away in September from kidney cancer. “Tay loved fashion, and it was exciting for her to design a shoe for ShoeDazzle to help raise money and bring awareness to this rare type of cancer,” she told People. “Tay’s grace and positivity as she battled the disease was truly inspirational, and something I will never forget.”

Similar to Richards’ shoes, Tay’s design too features crystal embellishments along with a hidden platform. The interiors are done up in a special color that was created by Tay called Pray 4 Tay green.

“I am honored to have had the chance to work so closely with Tay on this project,” Richards said. “Tay was so excited to design a shoe and I am heartbroken she will not get to see the finished product.”

Richards’ earlier design was called Eloise, named after her daughter. It is a pink-and-gold embellished peep-toe sling-back pump with gold metallic pin heel.
