Can't walk in heels? We feel you, girl. Especially for a red carpet event so high-profile and fancy, you want to feel confident, beautiful, and traditional — especially if it's your first time there. It's no surprise that Lena Dunham went with the safe choice in terms of red-carpet footwear — a black, peep-toe Christian Louboutin pump with a bit of a platform and a heck of a heel. However, the mix of nerves, Moët, and an unwieldy skirt probably made a precarious situation even worse. Twitter was aflutter with how wobbly Lena was in her shoes, and even we admit to grinding our teeth in fear as she walk-swam her way to the stage to receive her two wins. A tip, if we may? When your dress is this long, no one's going to look at your shoes. Just say you're wearing Louboutins and slip into those heeled combat boots we're sure you already own. That would be a bit of Girls-type ingenuity we'd condone anytime.
Louboutin Lady Peep 150 mm Shoe, $945, available at Christian Louboutin.
