None of us will ever forget Victoria Beckham’s very impressive and heavily pregnant appearance at the wedding of Prince William and his Kate five years ago. Slightly swaying while clutching husband David Beckham’s arm, Victoria strutted her way to Westminster Abbey in vertigo inducing Plateau-Pumps. The whole world held its breath; would she fall in front of millions of onlookers and have a miscarriage? We already knew that regardless of any situation, Victoria never shows up without her heels. An eight month pregnancy (with little Harper in her belly) didn’t suffice to dissuade her, making one thing quite clear: the former Spice Girl’s most essential fashion statement was more important than any comfort necessitated by pregnancy. “I can’t concentrate in flat shoes,” she said, vindicating her clear obsession for dramatically high heels. However, during the closing of her Victoria Beckham Autumn Winter 2016 runway show in New York, the fashion icon appeared in white sneakers on the stage! Victoria wearing flat and mega sporty sneakers during her biggest appearance in the season? In front of a congregation of fashion’s elite? What happened?
VICTORIA BACKHAM, AT THE END OF THE DAY ARE YOU INDEED JUST A NORMAL WOMAN?
The resolution of this grand mystery followed immediately: “I can’t bear high heels at the moment. At least not when I’m working.”Oh Victoria Beckham, at the end of the day are you indeed just a normal woman? But seriously, all women are familiar with this problem, which we avoid discussing (especially around men): deciding which shoes to wear when we go out. Sexy pumps or comfortable shoes? The former makes our legs appear infinitely long at the cost of ruining our feet, our backs, and finally our good mood. (I’m sure you slipped off those pumps underneath the most chicest restaurant table at some point, no? Exactly) The ladder, are better for the feet and mood, but sadly very unattractive. Well, that’s what we thought until recently
SHE LIKES TO WEAR PANTS AND JEANS PLUS THE AFOREMENTIONED FLAT SHOES.
But here comes Victoria Beckham and teaches us a thing or two. How amazing is that? Thank you Victoria. Mrs. Beckham, who we’d only seen perfectly styled in skin-tight pencil skirts and stiff cocktail dresses, has taken on a more relaxed aesthetic. She likes to wear pants and jeans plus the aforementioned flat shoes. Of course this comfortable and relaxed look wouldn’t abide to Victoria Beckham’s nature if it were anything but perfectly chic without a hint of loss in sex appeal. Believe me, you can achieve this look! And there is always something you can do better than the eternally grim faced British lady: smile!
