Not What We Mean By High/Low: Gisele Wears Sandals With A Gown

gisele-embed
If Gisele wears an evening gown with flip flops, that means we can wear an evening gown with flip flops, too. Right? It's probably a smart move to follow in the supermodel's footsteps — her name is synonymous for being the highest paid in the biz — and the first step is checking out her latest campaign for Ipanema sandals. But maybe not.
The model's most recent South Beach appropriate designs (she started designing for the brand in 2002) come in an array of monochromatic, floral hues with brooches for straps that are perfect for the sand, but probably not for a cocktail party.
Admittedly, we can dig Mrs Brady's dressed-down approach to floor-length dresses. It's a way to get more use of out an outfit that you may only wear for one occasion. But, even the model with the magic marketing touch can go a little too far. While those in the 305 are probably experts on casual footwear, despite Gisele's beautiful butterfly stance (yes, she still looks gorgeous!), we'll have to pass on (another) questionable evening wear styling combination. On the flip, aren't you glad she didn't design for Uggs? (Huffington Post)
