Heels Reach New HeightsPublicado: 24 julio, 2012
In the past years we’ve seen celebrities like Lady Gaga, Kesha, Katy Perry among others sport mind blowing, out of proportion fashion statements. I guess they are allowed since most of they’re outfits (except for Gaga) are meant for stage, red carpets or amusement of the fans. It is very unusual that these ensembles hit the mass market and become part of the day to day style that most of the people have. Every once in a while we get that lucky one that hits a home run and let’s just say is out of the park for everyone else to see or in this case use.
The no heel platform has come to stay. You either love it or you hate it (I’m choosing love). Different variations of the style have been adopted by designers from gothic rocker to feminine, all of them fashion-forward of course. Lady Gaga was the first seen in these impossible to walk shoes; it was like the fashion circus. But then again she dresses to impress literally. Her choices were too high, too out there and too of everything. The idea was set in stone but executed only for a performer not for us the fashion consumers that will do anything for that one special piece.
Designers took the task to tone down the extravagant style but without taking out its essence. It is a risky look but it can be so fun if you try it. Push yourself not to be as everyone else, new is so good especially when it comes to a pair of shoes. You can go for a clean look or a spike rocker style that only a celebrity could pull off. The thing is you don’t need to be a celebrity to pull it off you just need the love for fashion and a little bit of attitude.
