Yes, I know, its a day late, but to be honest, last night I couldnt think of anything inspiring to write about, given I havent actually been out the last few days, and all. But thankfully, today, along came the Cannes Film Festival to inspire me.
Under normal circumstances I avoid high heels, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, when you’re the best part of 6 foot tall, you dont need them. Well, OK, if I want to intimidate most men from about 6′ 4″, then fine, wear them. If I’m meant to be the demure little lady, well, maybe not?
Equally, there are times when I will wear them, as a must. Job interviews (though the last couple, due to knee issues have been low heels) are pretty seen as a must, even if it does leave me taller than the person who might employ me, but anyway…Also, any nice event, like dinner out with the others here, or the Film Noir party, absolutely!
But otherwise, flats, or the low heels are my norm to wear.
Now, I’m not ever likely to walk down the red carpet at Cannes, or anywhere else. I guess one of my books could be adapted into a movie, but even then…rolls eyes! Last night, at Cannes, women were being turned away from the cinema, unless they were wearing high heels! Yes, fine, if you can, but some of these people had good, medical reasons for not wearing high heels! Yes, my knees are a pain, but medically unable to wear heels, of course not!
Thankfully, this seems to have caused quite a furore, and has left people at the Festival trying to rescue themselves by not saying that high heels are a must, but seemingly it is. I suspect it will come down to the organisers trying to protect themselves, but as people would say, that ship has probably sailed by now, full of bad publicity!
Whatever next? All women must wear corsets, maybe? Hey, I might, but can you imagine any man thinking that bringing that rule in wouldnt bring the wrath of everyone down on them? Yes, high heels, for ‘posh’ events are seen as a done thing, but for those who cant wear them, for good reasons, sense should prevail.
OK, rant over.
The video? Well, you could say that if a sexy young woman was wearing high heels, she might be up for this? Sorry!
