I’ve been reading a lot of articles online about the Her-story and His-story of heels. Some sites say that Da Vinci invented the heeled shoe (his), and most agree heels were originally worn by men of status (his). During the French Revolution you’d probably be caught dead in heels, because they were a sign of opulence and the fashionably affluent aristocracy—Think K Dunst in Marie Antoinette (hers). She lost her head. True story.
But this story is inspired by India, Where guys have (re)embraced the high heel as a symbol of prestige, wealth, and of course, style. The article I read featured this duo, who brought the trend stateside to a parking lot behind a club in Hollywood.
More importantly for the #TBT, the one on the right is rockin’ one of our styles from way back…no, further back. You OG Dazzlers may know her as Maxine, circa 2010.
