And its the Daily Mail shock!

LOL. She must have seen which way the wind of change is blowing.
This is the second time of course - she wrote a v good anti-Hooters article the other week.

Just read it. Christ. How long till they sack her?

'OK, you don’t like your feet, so wear socks. Or stop wearing the £400 shoes this magazine has been relentlessly pushing for a decade, which will surely have contributed to blisters, corns, misshapen toes and pain.
Anyone who works in fashion knows it is these shoes that have destroyed the beauty of our feet, pushed our lower backs out of alignment and locked our knees.
After years of high shoes, I’m going to wear brogues, loafers, slippers and flip flops.'

I never show my feet.
But there is no way I would put those Toms things on them, ethical or not!

Quite a good advert for foot-fillers, that was, the slagging off notwithstanding.

it's just drawing the line in a different place though. Putting nice smelling stuff on your feet and messing around with a tennis ball under your desk is probably fairly pleasant and fun, hugely expensive injections and whatnot, or wearing shoes that hurt, aren't. I think for a woman in her job to move one step further from the idea that any beauty practice is acceptable no matter how expensive and painful, is a positive thing. She's saying 'actually there are limits' and in the world of fashion journalism that's probably quite a radical thing to say as far as I can see! confused

She is quite a good writer when she isn't doing her usual barking mad spiel (although she is one of the highest earners on Fleet street).

Moisturising your feet is fair enough, although I just stick to cheap and cheerful brands, but injecting toxins into your feet in the name of vanity is ridiculous. I had hoped that with this recession that fashion and magazines would have regained some sanity but apparently not.

shock is this a portent of the imminent apocalypse?

sethstarkaddersmum Mon 08-Nov-10 17:24:32

LOLOL Sixpercent!

I can definitely see her as one of Horsewomen of the Apocalypse.
