Look at lovely Gaga in this picture (animal fans, try not to think about how many My Little Ponies had to die for that mane of hers). Isn’t she nice? Lovely patterned tights, a sensible blazer to keep out the chill and. Oh – wait a minute, LOOK AT THOSE SHOES!
In the Grazia office we have a sensible saying – never eat something (but we think this means a single item of food) that is bigger than your head, but we think the principle could be just as well applied to footwear. Those platforms are nearly three times the height of Gaga’s cute little face! What’s going on? Looking at some other pictures from earlier this month and in May and it seems this is an ongoing and escalating issue. The platforms are getting higher and higher. Gaga, we urge caution, in case you are reading this. We all remember well the time you took a tumble in the Heathrow Arrivals hall and – speaking from personal experience we know that broken ankles are quite pesky injuries to recover from. Watch out!
