Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz recently explained that he had to scrap a lot of the heels in his spring 2011 show because "We did the rehearsal and all of a sudden I saw the girls couldn’t walk. I saw the agony in their faces. They were shaking; they looked like alcoholic girls." Yet celebrities, who like to remind the world they are special enough to get to wear items now that were on the runway weeks ago, are wearing them anyway! Gwyneth Paltrow wore the spring 2011 mesh pumps from look 39 to the Country Strong premiere last night. "I’m in pain," she told People of the stilettos. "I feel like I’m in a torture vice." But she didn't look like a sloppy drunk in the pictures, and when you're Gwyneth that's what really matters.
