Manolo says, the Manolo has long been of the opinion that the tall girls should be free to wear the heels, that they should not, either through timidity, or the desire to protect the fragile egos of shorter mens, avoid wearing the super fantastic shoes.
Here, now, is the special case of the tall girl, her short man, and the flat shoes.
Left to right, you see before you, Prince Philip, Carla Bruni, the hotty-ish first French lady, Queen Elizabeth, and Nicolas Sarkozy, the President of France.
And here is the reason for Ms. Bruni’s flat shoes…
But the biggest gulf between the newlyweds is that the French president is just 5ft 6in tall, while his former model wife stands at a willowy 5ft 11in.
Accordingly she has been wearing flat heels constantly, according to French media reports, and forsaking potentially more fashionably shoes for the sake of Mr Sarkozy’s public image.
The president has, in turn, been wearing a pair of stacked shoes made to make him look two inches taller.
Normally, the Manolo would deplore acquiescing to the societal conventions that say the man should always be taller than his woman, especially when the tall woman in question would be absolutely stunning in beautiful high-heeled shoes.
In this case, however, one can argue that that the flat shoes are almost the matter of state.
P.S. Here is the super fantastic 6’4″ girl who sometimes rocks the heels.
