The Wild Things star has followed in the footsteps of Kristen Bell, Kristin Chenoweth, Jenny McCarthy and former Spice Girls singer Melanie Brown to team up with ShoeDazzle designers as part of the Celebrity Shoe Design Program for Charity.

Richards has fashioned a pair of light pink and gold embellished peep-toe shoes, with a gold metallic pin heel, in honour of her mum, who passed away from kidney cancer in 2007.

The proceeds will all go to the Kidney Cancer Association (KCA).

She says, "Fashion has always been a passion of mine and I especially love shoes. What woman doesn't love a feminine, yet sexy pump in her collection? Teaming up with ShoeDazzle to help a charity I admire and a cause that is particularly dear to me because of my mother provided an amazing opportunity to combine my passions.

"I decided to name the shoe after my baby Eloise because she has been such a blessing in my life."

The footwear will be available from 16 January (12).
