Manolo Blahnik on Flat Shoes

By

Flat shoes are not Mr. Manolo Blahnik's favorite. "It's much more difficult to be beautiful and walk femininely in flats," he said. While he thinks Brigitte Bardot and Audrey Hepburn pulled them off gracefully (and, might we add, Carla Bruni), he thinks "you can walk like a beach bum in them — then they don't look so good." But is that worse than wearing heels that make you fall down? [British Vogue]
