Emma Thompson - My Hero!

Posted on Mar 28, 2014

Emma Thompson is my celebrity hero of the moment.  This awards season was very busy for Ms. Thompson, and she was not afraid to speak her mind. 

At the Golden Globes, she removed her heels and carried them on stage, with a martini in her other hand, to present the award for Best Screenplay.  She proceeded to inform the audience that the iconic red on soles on the bottom of her Christian Louboutin shoes was actually her blood.  When she reached for the winner’s envelope, she threw the shoes behind her on stage, causing the audience to burst into laughter.

I have to say, Emma got it right - not all Half Day shoes are worth putting on your feet in the name of style!


Fast forward to the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, and surprise, surprise – Emma is in flats!  Once again going with designer Christian Louboutin, her gold and silver shimmer flats were lovely and she pulled them off!  I would still consider these shoes to be Half Day shoes, as they lack any support for the divine actress’s arch, but she definitely has the right idea!  My hope is we will be seeing more flats on the Red Carpet in many awards seasons to come!

At Heartland Foot and Ankle Associates, we offer a wide variety of stylish and supportive shoes for the entire family.  Come by the office today to check out all the amazing shoes we have to offer!
