There are many unanswered questions dogging us in our everyday lives; are we alone in the universe? Why is reality television so popular? Why is golf called a sport? The list is frankly endless but perhaps one of the most scientifically challenging questions is related to fashion. Can one wear shorts with stilettos and not look like white trash?
An interesting question I’m sure you’ll agree and one which deserves much more attention than it currently gets. I propose an immediate working party set up to discuss the possibility of some sort of democratic process in which experts in the field can display their qualifications and (using a complex system of proportional representation) be voted onto a panel which will then retire to ruminate on the issue. They will report back in 18 months following a period of isolation on the west coast of Greenland.
While all this is happening perhaps we should try a slightly less unscientific method and check out a few shots of celebrities actually modeling this look.
Let’s start with Eva Longoria, a young lady who would look good wearing twigs and dustbin bag so this isn’t really a fair test but what the hell…
I’m sure you’ll agree there’s not much wrong with that look so let’s move on to a couple of younger ladies, proving that one generation is quite happy to copy the styles of those that precede it. This is Selina Gomez and Hailee Steinfeld doing the business and pulling it off.
Our next contestant is the lovely Rihanna, wearing the ‘look’ with ease and grace but like Eva, it’s a bit difficult for her not too look good.
….and one more to add the icing to the top of the cake; this is the an event which took place in Australia in 2010 to break the record for the biggest stiletto run….
