WTF Files: Posh’s Non-Heeled Heels
If a stiletto is missing its actual ‘stiletto’, is it still a high heel? Also, why do these exist? These are the key question we are asking ourselves after reading the news that Victoria Beckham has shelled out for a pair of the £1,800 snakeskin Antonio Berardi 5 1/2 inch platforms we saw (and mocked) on the Spring/Summer 2008 catwalks last fall.
Listen up, fashion-minded Kickettes: These are the clodhoppers you are meant to be wearing if you have money to burn and style that knows no bounds. Best to purchase several pairs, as surely members of the peasant class and the general public will wrench them from your toddling tootsies and scarper off down the streets cackling over their luck at nicking such a wondrous item of shoe-booty.
We also suggest you warm up your feet by rocking stilts to the gym for about three to four weeks prior to wear.
Lady Becks may be the first reported WAG to purchase, but anyone want to place bets on the first footie wife to debut a pair? Our money is on Alex Curran-Gerrard – what with Ascot, Aintree and the stack of summer weddings scheduled this year, it’s only a matter of time.
