Marilyn Monroe was and still is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to beauty and fashion. Her sense of fashion is a huge inspiration. I love reading about her. I recently came across Marilyn Monroe’s shoe secrets and I find them really interesting. Monroe’s favourite shoe designer was Salvatore Ferragamo (the luxury Italian designer); she had over 40 pairs, so she was definitely a huge fan. And who would blame her? A good pair of heels is every woman’s best friend. Heels can completely step up our style game. They add instant glamour, lengthen the legs and take the whole look to another level.
Marilyn Monroe’s Shoe Secrets
Here are some of Monroe’s shoe secrets –
Find a shoe designer you like and stick with the designer
Well, we all know she adored Salvatore Ferragamo’s shoes and had loads of them. It is great to find a shoe designer whose styles work well for you. I wouldn’t say I have a favourite shoe designer. I wear shoes from different designers but I do love Kurt Geiger shoes a lot. KG shoes always attract me. Do you have a favourite shoe designer?
Wear flesh-coloured shoes with flesh-coloured tights
This is another great tip. Wearing flesh-coloured shoes with flesh-coloured tights lengthens the legs. Different shades break up the line and make your legs appear shorter, which is the last thing any woman wants.
If you can’t walk in heels, do the wriggly walk
Now this is one of Monroe’s shoe secrets she never admitted but the word on the street was that she couldn’t walk in high heels, so she did the wriggly walk. Apparently, every time Marilyn took a step, she wobbled on her ankles, which led to the wriggly walk. If you must wear heels and can’t walk in them, you may want to look into her wriggly walk.
