Munro Shoes BiographySource (google.com.pk )
Leggy, brunette-maned pin-up actress Caroline Munro was born in Windsor and lived in Rottingdean near Brighton where she attended a Catholic Convent School. By chance, her mother and a photographer entered her picture in a "Face of the Year" competition for the British newspaper The Evening News and won. This led to modeling chores, her first job being for Vogue Magazine at age 17. She moved to London to pursue top modeling jobs and became a major cover girl for fashion and television commercials while there.
Decorative bit parts came her way in such films as Casino Royale (1967) and Where's Jack? (1969). One of her many gorgeous photo ads earned her a screen test and a one-year contract at Paramount where she won the role of Richard Widmark's daughter in the comedy/western A Talent for Loving (1969). She first met husband/actor Judd Hamilton filming this movie but they later divorced. Also in 1969, she became the commercial poster girl for "Lamb's Navy Rum", a gig that lasted ten years. She had no lines as Vincent Price's dead wife in The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971) and Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972) which, in turn, led to a Hammer Studios contract and such low-budget spine-tinglers as Dracula Today (1972) and Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter (1974).
More noticeable roles came outside the studio as the slave girl/love interest in The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1973), the princess in At the Earth's Core (1976), and a lethal Bond girl in the top-notch The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), one of Roger Moore's best outings in the '007' series. Her voluptuous looks sustained her for a bit longer but the quality of her roles did not improve with higher visibility. By the late 1970s, she was reduced to roles in Starcrash (1978), Maniac (1980) and Slaughter High (1986).

She once sang in her church choir. At age 16, she recorded some vocals on the single "Tar and Cement" in 1966, for EMI, which featured Eric Clapton, Cream drummer Ginger Baker and future Yes guitarist Steve Howe. The producer needed to add a few overdubs. Caroline got the job because her father's friend was the head of Decca Records at the time. Caroline has appeared in two music videos, "Goody Two Shoes" with Adam Ant and "If You Really Want to" with Meat Loaf. In addition, she recorded the single "Pump Me Up" with Gary Numan. Her latest music project is "Wilson Munro", in which she has teamed up with Gary Wilson (XXVI) to record a three-track CD.
She and blond bombshell and fellow former Hammer pin-up Ingrid Pitt are considered the Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe of horror.
According to Caroline's website interview with ZANI, she was not earmarked to appear in the movie Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter (1974) originally but her schedule worked out and she did. Kronos was actually supposed to be a serial of films when it first came out in 1974. However, the movie was not well received and the idea was scrapped. It remains her favorite film.

Personal Quotes (2)
[in a 1988 interview] As I get older, I'm becoming more experienced and more secure about myself and my work. Having not taken the correct route of drama school and the stage, it has been extra hard for me. I felt I didn't have the experience and therefore I was very insecure. Now, however, I feel I have -- in a way -- paid my dues by going back to the beginning and starting again. That's why I have been jumping at so many different projects. I feel I've earned the chance. I feel I can be up there with the other actors. I'm still not completely secure, but I'm much more secure than I used to be.
I was frightened of every opportunity I had. Part of me wanted the success and notoriety and part of me didn't. Part of me is a private person, but part of me must be a show-off to be able to be in the limelight. It would be lovely -- in an ideal world -- if I could do the work and then go home and have my private life and be totally anonymous. Unfortunately, it can't be that way.
Skechers was founded in 1992 by retail industry veteran Robert Greenberg, who had previously created women's athletic wear brand L.A. Gear in 1983. In his career, Greenberg had sold wigs to beauty vendors in Boston, imported designer jeans for retail markets and owned his own roller skate stores.
At the outset, Greenberg intended for his brand to distribute British-made Dr. Martens shoes. The two companies later had a dispute involving order deliveries, and by 1993, Sketchers was on its own and had to rely on its own designs to prosper.

By 1997, the company began selling shoes overseas in southeast Asia and eastern Europe. By 1998, 15 percent of the company's profit came from overseas markets.
The original goal of Skechers was to provide men with casual nonathletic shoes. The dominant maker of men's shoes at the time was Nike, but it didn't offer very many street shoes.
Skechers' first successful design was called the "Chrome Dome," which debuted in 1993. It appealed to both men and women, and was inspired by the grunge fashion trend in the 1990s. The shoe was made to look worn and the heels appeared scuffed up, matching pre-ripped and stone-washed jeans also popular at the time.
