In this vintage video from the 1970s, a bunch of average Brits were asked for their take on the burgeoning platform shoe trend that was sweeping the streets of London. Unwearable? Impossibly chic? Oh, they’ll definitely tell you what they think. What I wouldn’t do for some of these vintage pairs. [Pathe]

Forget for a second that every guest on “Charlie Rose,” a PBS news program for wonks, looks like they’re struggling to stay awake. The cast of “Mad Men” appeared last night with guest host Gayle King and she pressed the show’s creator, Matt Weiner, with a good question: where are the black folks? “As you move through time, I’m wondering will we see some black people?” Gayle asked.
