Maria Menounos helps celebrate the 10th anniversary of America's most beloved clog with cupcakes and Crocs in New York's Times Square.
This morning I got to hang with Extra Host and former "Dancing with the Stars" sweetheart Maria Menounos, along with the dynamic duo of Georgetown Cupcake Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne from TLC’s “DC Cupcakes,”as they helped Crocs'’ executives and founders ring in their 10th anniversary. The celebration started off inside NASDAQ headquarters, in Times Square, with a six-foot giant pink Croc and the traditional ringing of the NASDAQ bell.
Menounos, dressed in a black asymmetrical dress, wore Crocs’ signature giraffe print Adrina flats to the event. While chatting with executives and founders, she expressed how Crocs saved her feet after her strenuous practices during “Dancing with the Stars.” “I love Crocs because they helped support my feet while also allowing me to be stylish in my day-to-day routine,” said Menounos as she jumped lightly on the balls of her feet.
After opening up the NASDAQ market, Menounos and the group (including Crocs founders, friends, and fans) made their way over to the center of Times Square to pass out uniquely made cupcakes to everyone walking by. In addition to the 1,000 cupcakes handed out to the crowd, Sophie and Katherine also constructed a Crocs cupcake creation made up of more than 2,000 cupcakes to go along with the celebration. Menounos compared the giant clog to an egg that belonged to Lady Gaga saying, “This looks a lot like her egg vessel! Next time, I should just get inside of the Crocs and do an interview from there!”
The celebration continued at the Crocs store in the heart of SoHo. The store was decorated with balloons and cupcake displays for customers who visited throughout the day. SoHo shoppers flocked to the store to see Menounos as she tried on her favorite styles and stepped in to blow out 10 candles wishing Crocs an amazing future as they work toward their next decades of success.
