Gwyneth Paltrow's Lanvin Heels Are Killing Her

If beauty is pain, then Gwyneth Paltrow is the most gorgeous celebrity to wear a pair of (almost) unwearable Lanvin mesh pumps from the Spring '11 RTW show. Even though Paltrow was "in pain" and felt like she was in "a torture vice," she was able to pull them off as well. Unfortunately it was a different story with some of the other Lanvin models. Apparently, most of the towering heels that were supposed to be paired with each look in the show were replaced by back-up flats and sandals that were available backstage. Designer extraordinaire Alber Elbaz said "We did the rehearsal and all of a sudden I saw the girls couldn't walk. I saw the agony in their faces. They were shaking; they looked like alcoholic girls." We suppose the last thing Elbaz wanted was fashion roadkill at his glamourous show. (TheCut)
