Most of you must have noticed that celebrities seem to wear shoes that are far too big for them. And you may have probably paid attention to the fact that some celebrities appear on the red carpet wearing shoes that are at least a size too big. Why? Is this a new fashion trend? Or is there more to it?
Hollywood stars are often papped gracing the red carpet wearing heels far longer or wider than their feet, but it turns out there may be many good reasons to why this is the case.
Let’s figure out why celebrities wear bigger size shoes
To prevent Swelling
It’s a fact that many Hollywood stars deliberately choose to grace the red carpet wearing heels that are too long or too wide for them. And the simple secret behind this is to prevent their feet from swelling and forming blisters.
After all, celebrities have to wear high heels for hours and sometimes even all night. Obviously, their feet will swell. And there’s nothing glamorous about swollen looking, painful feet – hence wearing shoes that are at least one size too big for them.
Celebrities wear bigger size shoes to Avoid pain
Celebrities choose to wear shoes that are at least a size too big for them in order to avoid foot pain, discomfort, and chronic foot issues later in life. Moreover, large pumps or sandals won’t rub, pinch, or squeeze their foot because they don’t put pressure on the most vulnerable areas of the feet.
Now you know why celebs wear bigger size shoes. But here a question arises, can we prevent bigger size shoes from slipping. And how do they manage to walk with such poise, whilst wearing shoes that are set to slip at any moment?
Apparently, larger-sized heels won’t rub or pinch and the shoes are kept from slipping off the feet. Thus stylists insert silicone pads or double-sided tape inside the pumps.
This simple trick ensures that the shoe fits snugly but stays on the foot, does not restrict blood circulation, and stops feet from swelling.
Double-sided tape is another secret tool used by celebrities. It also helps big shoes to stay on your feet all night long.
It makes sense that stars who have to stand at public appearances or red carpet events for hours in killer heels.
Of course, when the hem covers the shoes most of the celebrities wear pumps that don’t fit properly with their maxi dresses. Since a lot of Hollywood stars don’t even bother to hide their little secret from the public. So, this trick has almost become a trend nowadays.
Over the years, stars including Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Stewart, and Kristen Bell. All have been snapped wearing shoes that appear to be sized up.
During an event when Aubrey Plaza looked back at the camera, it was clearly noticeable that her heels didn’t fit.
At the Cannes Film Festival, Julianne Moore’s heels fit so poorly that somehow her pinky toe managed to slip out of the metallic, silver straps.
The French actress attended the 26th annual Cabourg Romantic Film Festival in a pair of classic red pumps. She too followed the time-old Hollywood “tradition” of wearing a heel a size too big. How?
