Height of Fashion?


The height of fashion: Alexander McQueen’s 12-inch heels

Alexander McQueen’s models hit the catwalk in sky-high heels for his Paris show, WOW. Our first question after seeing these amazing shoes was how on earth did Alexander McQueen’s models walk down the catwalk in them? Answer: not very easily.

The gaggle of stunningly attired models strutted gingerly down the catwalk (along to the debut of Lady GaGa’s new single) in crystal-studded and animal-print 12-inch heels as part of McQueen’s Plato’s Atlantis collection, inspired by Charles Darwin’s The Origin Of The Species.

Alexander McQueen dressed the models in short, reptile-patterned, digitally-printed dresses in greens, browns, blues and aquas with bold hairstyles and these killer heels to finish off each look.

Amazing outfits and incredible shoes – another fantastic show for Alexander McQueen.

But a trend we’ll be rocking? We’d love to say yes, but possibly not!

Ok I might be showing my lack of fashion knowledge but while these shoes are cutting edge they kind of freak me out. It looks like some kind of mutant cloven foot. What do you think?

Good God. Ok, yeah – this is just one more reason I think many men running the fashion world should move aside or only design for men. I wonder if just have it out for us women and are doing whatever they can to make us buy their ridiculous ideas in the name of “fashion,” while praying on our insecurities and making us look like animals. The optimal word here is SHOW. This is private joke and I guarantee you they are laughing. (did anyone see what shoes McQueen designed for the men?…guarantee you they can walk just fine in them). Just say NO to being made a fool of ladies.
