Video: Tyra Banks Chews a Shoe, Explains Stiletto ‘Math’

In the latest installment of their epic series of Fa Fa Fa Fashion videos, Tyra Banks and André Leon Talley discuss stilettos. It's wonderful.

As well as a (not) very in-depth lesson on the stiletto's history, Tyra offers some clever "retired supermodel" tips on minimizing foot pain and slippage. She also — as always — finds more than one opportunity to plug her modeling career (with pictures!) and indulges in all manner of frantic antics: jumping an invisible rope, talking in her now-signature odd mix of French-ish accents, and chewing on a stiletto heel. ALT just sits there and opines with the occasional shriek, which is more than fabulous enough.

Oh, and here's a direct quote after a bout of play-acting in which she pretends to stab him with her stiletto heel: "Please do not use stilettos as a means for weaponry." Not only must we say thanks for the clarification, but yes, Tyra has reached the point where even her conversational speech requires copyediting.
