It seems the stylist and creative director at Mark Fast’s London Fashion Week presentation weren’t the only fashion professionals who staged a walk-out at the shows this season.
Model Abbey Lee Kershaw has spilled to the Frockwriter blog that she and fellow models Natasha Poly and Sasha Pivovarova refused point blank to walk in THOSE crazy shoes at the Alexander McQueen show.
The trio of models struck a blow for beautiful peoples’ rights by deciding amongst themselves that the 10-inch high Armadillo shoes just weren’t worth the risk, choosing instead not to appear in the model line-up for McQueen’s prestigious show.
We’ve since seen Daphne Guinness and Lady Gaga clopping about in the Armadillos (although to be fair, posing briefly on the red carpet, and lolling kookily in the Bad Romance video, respectively, are not the same as gruelling tramping up and down required on McQueen’s never-ending catwalk).
Kershaw is right to be cautious. After all, it was only a year ago that she fainted after being squeezed into a too-tight corset at Alexander McQueen’s spring ’09 show (pictured below)… [TheCut]
