Models Remove Their Shoes On The Catwalk In Melbourne

Model Monologue: Flat Top
There's flat-chested and there's flat-chested. Read More »

If you ever entertain the notion that modeling as a job must be a piece of cake kale, think again. We’ve seen so many models trip, stumble, and cry on the runway at this point, it’s practically old news, but every time it happens it’s impossible to look away. At yesterday’s Melbourne Fashion Festival, so many models removed their platform stilettos midway down the runway that it almost seemed like an organized revolution. I don’t know exactly how many girls participated, but it was apparently enough for Australian news sources to refer to the situation as a “silent protest” or a “runway revolt.” Seeing as this is the alternative, I give the models credit for knowing when enough is enough. The CEO of the festival, Graeme Lewsey, expressed his disappointment to the Sydney Morning Herald but he did confirm that “models know, if there’s the slightest problem, they have to remove their shoes for safety.” Indeed: one model told the newspaper that she removed the shoes in fear of “breaking an ankle or worse.” God, I’m so thankful I barely break five feet, but not at all.

How High Will You Go?

I’m a wedge girl, which sounds vaguely dirty when you write it out but it just means I prefer to wear wedge heels. The other day I decided it was time to change things up, to really break out of my shell, so I set aside my wedges and threw on a pair of 3.5 inch patent leather pumps instead. I spent the day teetering around like a drunk person and by the time I got home my feet were in so much pain that I was fairly sure I was going to need to have them amputated. I know for many women 3.5 inchers are a no-big-deal, daily footwear option, so tell me: what’s your high heel height limit? What size/style of heel is your favorite? [Shown: Madden Girl Platforms, $50, Zappos]

What Footwear Could Be More Unnecessary Than The Teva Stiletto?

Lord help us, Tevas are re-populating. Behold the $330 Teva stilettos, made in collaboration with the shoe designer Grey Ant. Could any footwear be more unnecessary — or overpriced? [Or grotesque? -- Editor] Sadly, I can see my hippie sister wearing these to a “formal” event. [The Gloss] Keep reading »

Can You Tell A Slut By What She’s Wearing?

Cue the eyeroll. A British celeb style website called MyCelebrityFashion polled men on their girlfriends’ clothes and asked, “What trends make women look promiscuous?” Because you can tell a slut by what she’s wearing, duh.

Stiletto Attack, Stripper-Style

When 52-year-old Jo Ellen Nolan lost her job this year, she jumped right up and landed a new one—as an exotic dancer. I think that’s fantastic; I’m much younger than her, and I don’t consider my legs eligible for that kind of backup plan. Jo Ellen expected that the younger strippers at the club would treat her like a mama bear, but when she met 22-year-old Chetania Davis, who goes by the stage name “Beautiful,” she shouted at Jo Ellen, “Just what I need, another new bitch.” Beautiful then launched herself at Jo Ellen in the dressing room, stabbing her in the head with the heel of a stiletto. Beautiful went AWOL, like the stripper who tasered a cocktail waitress, but was later arrested. Jo Ellen had to get seven staples to treat the cuts on her forehead. Beautiful plead guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor assault charge and was sentenced to a year of probation and a six-month suspended sentence. Jo Ellen, her dancing career over, has registered with a temp agency. There is no word on what happened to the other shoe. [AP]
