Ciao Baby: Throw out your high-heeled sneakers
Monday 19 January 1998
The stiletto still pinpoints sex. It is worn by femme fatales in films, and is sometimes even used as a device for murder - making it the ultimate poison which combines danger and sex. A male fantasy with knobs on, men murmur to persuade girlfriends to do the suspenders and high-heel look. Unfortunately for women, these knobs are the strange lumps and bumps that inevitably arise from trying to squeeze your foot into a shape nature never intended.
The prevalence of this fantasy makes Steve Coogan's incarnation Pauline Calf, as a good-time, bleached-blonde northern nymphet in white stilettoes, one of the most popular female parodies to date. We can do better than that - get in the moccasins, chuck out those stilettoes and make sure you aim good.
