Talking Points: out with the skyscrapers!

Katie Holmes Suri Cruise

Spotted: Coleen Rooney in six-inch Louboutins (eight months pregnant), three-year-old Suri Cruise in kitten heels (that match her clutch). We know it's LFW and worldwide fashionistas are upping their game – but girls, is this really necessary? There’s a time and a place for skyscraper heels, but flats also have their purpose. And if you’re a) Pre-teen b) Nearing your due date or c) Commuting on public transport, we say forgo the stilettos, maybe even for UGGs (just this once). Yes, we can understand why Coleen wished to look her best for a night out with the girls in Manchester this week (and at least her outfit, though stylish, was loose and maternity-friendly (God bless the inventor of leggings). We’re guessing this photo was taken early in the evening (as, for a woman in her last trimester, she looks very bright-eyed and bushy-tailed), and we wonder how comfortable those shoes were by midnight (we find heels painful enough and we’re not up the duff). As for Suri, dubbed the world’s most fashionable toddler and No.1 on Forbes list of favourite celebrity children under five (a fan of Juicy Couture, Ralph Lauren and Posh’s favourite fat-free snack edamame beans), she was pictured this week trotting around Boston in a pair of silver peep-toes with a miniature heel. But like any sensible style icon, Suri (well, Katie) had planned ahead and had a pair of pink converse to hand, to change into once her feet got too tired. Smart girl!
