The Grammys have come and gone, and aside from lamenting the continuation of the pattern that the winners are those who are best suited for elevator music, we’re reviewing the celebrities’ attempt to put their best foot (and shoes) forward.
Many celebs chose dresses that were too long to appreciate their footwear. Paula Abdul’s Banana Goddess outfit completely enveloped her feet, for instance. LeAnne Rimes proved that the gladiator trend isn’t going away anytime soon with her (slightly wrinkled) Cleo frock and strappy pumps.
Aside from hidden or Roman styles, many celebs wore rather bland shoes, perhaps in deference to the difficult economic times. No. Let me rephrase that. Some celebs made basic look bland, while others made it look classy.
Platform heels were another common sight at this year’s Grammys. Sheryl Crow paired an oceanic blue silk gown with strappy black platforms, which looked a tad bit small if you ask me. (I bet her “doggies were barkin’” at the end of the night, as my grandfather would say when his feet were sore.) Sporting a rare (and much appreciated) show of crazy peacock colors, I bet M.I.A. was much more comfy in her turquoise blue sneakers.
My favorite shoe of the evening? Kim Kardashian‘s silver peek-a-toe platforms. They’re glamorous without being loud.
