Elle Fanning was her typical sweet angelic style self at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet last night, wearing a strapless red Vivienne Westwood Gold Label dress and sparkly Christian Louboutin pumps. The dress, with its signature corset and artfully peaked sorta-sweetheart neckline, gave her a grown-up look I love, but what we need to talk about are the shoes.
No one’s ever going to accuse super-spindly stilettos of being comfortable, but Elle has a secret trick to walking in them with ease. “The shoes look [like such a] high point, but I do ballet, so I actually feel comfortable in them!” I find this romantic and adorable but am not totally sure if it makes sense. What we really need to do is ask our favorite ballerinas: How good are you at walking in heels?
