As Markets Fall, Heels Get Lower

While models stumble and tumble while strutting the runway in Fall 2009 shows like Hervé Léger, a few smart designers and fashion insiders are forgetting all about gorgeous-yet-painful high, higher, and highest heels and opting for more sensible shoes.

Carmen wore this saucy and sexy outfit for much of the first half of the movie as she rebelled against conventional norms. Her look was rather simple, just a pencil skirt and off-the-shoulder blouse, but her accessories make it much more interesting. Now all you need is the right attitude and walk. Keep reading »
