ShoeperStar: Angelina Jolie’s leg (In Salvatore Ferragamo shoes) at the 2012 Oscars

Angelina Jolie at the 2012 Oscars

OK, let’s talk about Angelina Jolie’s leg, shall we?

Lots of people have been busy making fun of Angie for her strange, “LOOK, HERE IS MY LEG!” stance (which she managed to maintain all night, amazingly: I wonder if she’s still standing like that now?), but honestly, I think she just wanted to show off her shoes. Well, think about it: it’s the Oscars, you’re all dressed up, you’re probably wearing some of the most fabulous shoes of your entire career… and you have to hide them under a long gown all night. It’s just not fair, is it? (Shoe-loving brides will no doubt be able to sympathise with Angelina on this one.) So Angelina fixed it. She fixed it by standing with her leg thrust out at all times. Sometimes a Shoeperstar’s gotta do what a Shoeperstar’s gotta do…

As for the shoes themselves, they’re custom made blackĀ Salvatore Ferragamo pumps, and which fit in well with Angelina’s no-fuss aesthetic, although I’m not sure they quite justify the full-on “leg thrust”!
