Kitten heels, I’m warming to you. While I, like many fashionisers, am nowhere near willing to give up my leg-lengthening stilettos and platforms, I am starting to feel your dainty pointed toes and sensible slender heels digging into my mind like tiny feline claws. It all comes down to the styling, of course. It’s about capturing the appeal of another era, and using the right pieces to do so. With big bouffant hair, ’60s full skirts and kitten heels under socks (cute patterned ones, no less) this pictorial from Elle UK does it pretty well.
The model is Alana Kuznetsova, photographed by David Slijper and styled by Anne-Marie Curtis.
