Models revolt over Alexander McQueens 12in heels

Three leading models have refused to take part in Alexander McQueens latest show because his signature shoes were too high.


London, Dec 27 : Three leading models have refused to take part in Alexander McQueen's latest show because his signature shoes were too high.

Models Abbey Lee Kershaw, Natasha Poly, and Sasha Pivovarova refused to strut in McQueen's 12in 'Armadillo' heels because of concerns over safety.

The soaring height of heels has been a source of controversy ever since Naomi Campbell's dramatic catwalk tumble in 1994.

McQueen's latest creations are three inches higher than the Vivienne Westwood platforms that toppled Campbell.

The lobster-claw shaped shoes are so high that models were concerned they might not leave the catwalk with their ankles or reputations intact.

Earlier this year, Kershaw and her colleagues agreed not to appear in McQueen's show because they had "work safety" concerns about the height of his shoes.

The British shoe designer Emma Hope said she sympathised with the models.

"It'd be like walking on a ruler. That's the opposite of what people want to look like," the Independent quoted her as saying.
