SHOULD HAVE A CHOICE
Celebrity stylist Nitasha Gaurav feels it’s archaic to say women should wear heels. “They should always have an option. It’s fine to have a dress code like formal or casual or smart casual but the extent of specifications should be checked. Men are not asked to wear footwear that’s inconvenient to them. How a woman chooses to interpret formal wear, is up to her. If it’s applicable for clothing it should be the same for footwear. There is a sublime understanding that if it is a red carpet event then it has to be heels, but one needs to slowly change the mindset. If a woman has to wear footwear for a few hours and smile and pose on the red carpet, she should choose a comfortable pair that works with her outfit. There are some actresses like Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka Sharma who are often spotted in flats for events,” says Nitasha.
