She's so good with her stiletto
Since writing the book How to Walk in High Heels, I have felt duty bound to practise what I preach. In my six-inch stilettos I keep my head held high and my eye on the goal. They are my shot of confidence and secret weapon against any rivals.
Well, of course they're a weapon. They'd better be. Because you certainly aren't going to run away from anyone in those six-inch heels.
There is a downside to living half a foot closer to the clouds, though:
It's true that as a heels devotee, plasters, pedicures, paracetamol and taxis have become an integral part of life. I also have to admit that cobblestones have become the bane of my life. But then, what work of art was achieved without pain, tears and the occasional blister?
I suggest that if you're going to think of yourself as a work of art, you should probably take better care of your canvas.
Then again, I suspect my viewpoint lies along a different axis than hers:
At a recent in-store evening at Browns, beautiful actress Rachel Weisz was wearing such incredible YSL high black patent heels that I didn't notice anything above her ankles.
If I get to the point that I don't notice anything above Rachel Weisz' ankles, either I've been affected by a combination of pesticides and radiation or I've been epoxied to the floor.
