I have been giving this a lot of thought, and maybe it is time I air my view, even if it means a few ladies are gonna wish they can cut my heart out.
Yes, platforms. My opinion, I am not crazy about them, they tend to give false impression. I mean, a seven inch heel, no foot, (a normal one ok?) can lift that high under normal circumstances, let alone walk like that, so they are clever, they build a huge platform under the ball of the foot. Hell, that's false man, like a two faced, bottom dealin' poker player.
Let's use Megan as an example, the ones in this picture are not that bad, granted, but in my opinion it would have looked much nicer had her toes been flat on the ground and her heels elevated around 4 to 5 inches.
Now compare the picture above, to this one down here of Adriana Lima. What do you think, which looks more real, more true??
Here is a great example of platform shoes messing up a great looking outfit, big time. Heidi looking especially nice, make up, perfect, hair looking great,(from a man's point of view ok?) beautiful dress, complete with fairy wings! A pretty picture as long as you don't take into account those shoes!! They spoil everything. Juk, they are hideous!
More spoilers.... this time Kim shows me how to mess up a great outfit.
Here is a perfect example, zoom in and compare the shoes of Teri Hatcher to those of the lady in the background. You be the judge, which looks better? Be honest now...
Finally, the ideal picture, Ava showing us what it should look like, heel about 4, maybe 5 inches above the red carpet, front of foot flat on the ground. PERFECT!
Nothing false 'bout that. The perfect picture!!
I am sure I am going to get some flak about this post, but I am equally sure I will be able to handle it, so let's have it.
