Well- heeled vs high- heeled

WKND - - Meet The Team -

When I was young, I’d heard about a book called Stiletto, where a se­rial killer used pointy, high heels as his weapon of mass de­struc­tion. I ob­vi­ously notched up an im­me­di­ate bias against stilet­tos. As time went by, how­ever, I did get into the habit of wear­ing high heels ( I es­pe­cially liked it when my 5’ 3” frame would be given a fil­lip, and I’d be stand­ing tall at 5’7”); I en­joyed my heels, although I would re­ceive a lot of un­so­licited ad­vice on how I was play­ing with foot health… So far, I haven’t suf­fered any high- heeled set­backs… prob­a­bly be­cause I have greatly whit­tled down my high heel us­age. It’s per­haps been a sub­con­scious pre­emp­tive strike, since more and more ladies of a cer­tain vin­tage are kick­ing high heels out of their clos­ets be­cause they are get­ting in the way ( case in point: Vic­to­ria Beck­ham, the posh one, who re­cently swore off spiked footwear). Get the low­down in this week’s fea­ture.

I haven’t watched Fan, but, by all ac­counts, it’s one of SRK’S best works so far — with a cer­tain noir com­po­nent to it ( sup­pos­edly). It’s a bleak look at showbiz, where things are mostly never what they seem to be. Now, there’s an­other ques­tion: is this a way of stars try­ing to pro­mote them­selves, by self- star­ring in a film ti­tled Fan? I don’t think so, but let’s hear it from our Bol­ly­wood in­side man.
