Victoria Beckham will be living my own private hell (and possibly hers, too) at New York Fashion Week next month, after her doctor banned her from wearing heels, due to a slipped disc following the birth of Victoria’s daughter, Harper Seven.
I’m being facetious about the “private hell” , of course: obviously health is much more important than fashion, and Victoria has to do whatever the doctor orders to avoid aggravating the problem. I will, however, be really interested to see how she copes without her trademark heels, because as a stiletto lover myself (I have friends who have never seen me without them: those who have are always absolutely amazed by how short I am), I know that making the switch to flats can be a bit of a challenge, sartorially speaking. I know flats can look every bit as good as heels if they’re done right, but I just don’t feel like “myself” them: I walk differently, carry myself differently, and the majority of my clothes were bought with heels in mind, so a week in flats would definitely be a challenge (although obviously I’d do it for the sake of my health: I’m not THAT stupid!), especially if it was a week full of social engagements.
According to “a source” (ahem!), Victoria is worried that flats will make her look like “a golf club”, and has turned to Christian Louboutin for help. I think her feet are in good hands, then: I can’t wait to see what she chooses to wear, though![Image: PRPhotos.com]
