Part of what made ‘The Bling Ring’ such a fun, freeing experience was that we got to wear these really over-the-top clothes we’d never pick in real life – like for the nightclub scenes, we’d have on these really short, really tight dresses.

Once upon a time, I was morbidly sensitive about the impertinence born of sociology. Taxi drivers would not stop for me after dark; white girls jogged to keep ahead of my shadow thrown at their heels by the amber street lamps. Part of me didn’t blame them, but most of me was hurt.
Darryl Pinckney
I never wore high heels in my hometown.

What you wear – and it always starts with your shoes – determines what kind of character you are. A woman who wears high heels carries herself very different to a girl who wears sneakers or sandals. It really helps determine how you carry yourself.

Allyson Felix
I believe time wounds all heels.

Erin Brockovich
I’m really excited for people to be able to see what else I can do, besides high heels and magic powers.

Falling head over heels in love with women was a habit I thought I’d thoroughly grown out of in middle school, when a group of about five girls and I color-coordinated our outfits and spent weekends and even some weeknights sprawled out in each others bedrooms.
Jenna Wortham
I can say that if you’re a writer who happens to be a woman, you’ll get a book cover that depicts a woman with no head, or a woman turning away, or a pair of high heels. You have to fight to not get stuck with these covers. In the U.S. women are chick-lit writers unless they prove otherwise, and that’s frustrating.

Allison Janney
Five inches of snow in five inch heels, you can’t look sexy and you can’t look like you know what you’re doing because you’re fall.
Mila Kunis
I really have not so much sympathy. If Tina Turner and Prince’s back-up band can perform on stage in them for three hours, you can’t tell me they are impossible to walk in. High heels are pleasure with pain. If you can’t walk in them, don’t wear them.
Christian Louboutin
They asked me why I was wearing heels, and I said, I’m trying to hide my ass. They gave me a prosthetic behind.

William Butler Yeats

Maggie Rogers
High heels are pleasure with pain.
Christian Louboutin
Maybe we all live life at too high a pitch, those of us who absorb emotional things all day, and as mere consequence we can never feel merely content: we have to be unhappy, or ecstatically, head-over-heels happy, and those states are difficult to achieve within a stable, solid relationship.
Nick Hornby
If it is true, as used to be said, that oversalting means the cook is in love, at least one cook at Le Cirque must be head over heels.

Authority, when first detecting chaos at its heels, will entertain the vilest schemes to save its orderly facade.
Alan Moore
I love heels, and as a size 36, I’ve accumulated a wall of amazing high heels from catwalk shows over the years where designers had to make especially small shoes. Tom Ford’s golden versions are my favourite. I do, however, also live in my flat Saint Laurent Chelsea boots or Givenchy sneakers.
Liberty Ross
Keep it simple. Layer your leotard with high waisted skinny jeans, legwarmers, and heels or high boots.

At some point I was a HappyAfricanFeminist who does not hate men. And who likes lip gloss and who wears high heels for herself but not for men.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I’ve always been someone who’s extremely relaxed in my everyday life. I’m not the girl who can wear awful seven-inch heels all night. I keep it simple – I consider myself to be a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl who just accessorizes a lot.
Nicole Richie
I used to wear heels because I wanted to show people I wasn’t ashamed of being tall. But I don’t wear them any more because you don’t have to wear heels to be beautiful. I can’t even remember the last time I wore heels.
Elle Macpherson
I think if I could be any superhero, it’d probably be my mom…but I don’t think I’d look too good in high heels, so it’s not gonna happen.

Dik Browne
I honestly find it easier to dance about in heels than I do to walk down the street in them.
Alison Goldfrapp
If you’re looking for a dress to wear to an event, put it on with the heels that you’re going to wear and walk around the room and make sure you feel comfortable in it.
Vanna White
Men sucked. They were the root of every problem any woman could ever have. They were the reason for bras, the need for makeup, hair stylists, shaving legs, and high heels that made the arch feel like it had a steel rod slammed up it. They were picky, arrogant, argumentative, and so damned certain of themselves .
Lora Leigh
Dancing in high heels is kind of tough. I learn the dances without the heels, and then we add them. We just practice, and I get used to it. My feet hurt really badly at the end of the shows, but it’s fun. While it’s happening it’s fun. I feel tall.
Ariana Grande

My day look is usually a good pair of jeans, my boots, and a cute T-shirt, but I love to get all dolled up in a dress and heels to go out.

I think it’s so cool to be tall. Even when I’m not wearing heels people tell me I’m tall and I always take it as a complement. The good thing is I can always see everybody in the room.
Maria Sharapova
A silk dress in four sections, and shoes with high heels that would have broken the heart of John Calvin.
Stephen Leacock
That’s a male pornographic fantasy that we’re buttoned-up all day and let our boobs hang out at night. The truth is, some girls are very girly and feminine, and they love to wear makeup and high heels. Other girls are more tomboyish, and they don’t.
Cara Santa Maria
When I’m not working, I just like to be comfortable: I love black, nothing tight, no heels, no make-up – it’s nice to be able to breathe!

Kali Uchis
On a very practical level, I’ve learned the importance of circulation socks for planes. I had this awful experience of getting off a flight to go to an event and my feet had swelled. Try getting into heels then! So you put on the socks for the flight, then you can wear whatever heels you want.
Lupita Nyong’o
I hate high heels. Walking in high heels for eight hours a day should be forbidden by the Geneva Convention.
Libba Bray
I’m the girl who’s like, ‘Why wear heels when I can wear tennis shoes and be comfortable?’ I’ve always been the girl who’s like, ‘Let’s go play basketball.
Kyla Pratt
Men in high heels? That’s a prosthesis. But I sympathise. Women have these giant heels. They get taller and taller. The men need help. But a man in heels is ridiculous.
Christian Louboutin
I don’t like kitten heels. I just don’t think they are an attractive shoe because they always look so stumpy. And I would never wear cowboy boots: a pointy toe and little heel is just not my thing.
Jessica Hart
I love heels. I remember the first time I saw a pair of heels my mum said: ‘You’re not wearing those. They’re too high!’
Dionne Bromfield
Christmas parties for me are less about a sparkly dress and heels and more about the most ridiculous Christmas jumper I can find.

I have tennis shoes with little rhinestones that I slip on if I exercise. But I always wear heels, even around the house. I’m such a short little thing, I can’t reach my kitchen cabinets.
Dolly Parton
If people know anything about Russians, we do things really over the top. We wear high heels everywhere. We show up in the most extravagant outfits. I am just embodying how I was raised and what I grew up in. Some people might think we’re extra; I just think we’re ravishing.
I like individuality in fashion – it annoys me when celebrities put on a bodycon dress and a pair of high heels and suddenly they are ‘style icons.’
Georgie Henley
Most liberals think of civil liberties as their Achilles heel. It isn’t.
Joe Biden
Always wear high heels. Yes, they give you power. you move differently, sit differently and even speak differently.

Lynda Barry
I do not improvise in heels.
Amy Poehler
There are those who believe justice and dignity are reserved only for some people. Young men have died in police custody, and the growing heel of poverty has worn down harder on children of color…We must fight back.
Elizabeth Warren
I hate kitten heels; they’re useless. Either wear heels that are dangerous, or don’t wear them at all.
Deepika Padukone
Bill Clinton sitting on Air Force One getting his hair cut while people around the country cooled their heels and waited for him, became a metaphor for a populist president who had gotten drunk with the perks of his own power and was sort of, you know, not sensitive to what people wanted.
Dee Dee Myers
I feel most glamorous in tight-fitting dresses that hug my curves, and the highest heels.
Amanda Lepore
It was only when I started to dig my heels in that I started to realize that’s what I needed to do – that nobody was going to open the door for me, that I had to make some space.
Dave Holland
My style is ghetto chic. I love tacky jewelry, mega heels, high-waisted shorts, catsuits.
Jessie J
I wear a lot of black, knitwear, skinny jeans and very high heels. My mum used to work for a fashion designer making knitwear, so she knits me lots of chunky scarves, hats and gloves, which I love.
Katie McGrath
If you look at the history of wrestling, what makes heels great is their ridiculous statements.
I like to be creative with my red carpet outfits, but equally, sometimes I am just in the mood to go all out with a ball gown and heels – but only If you get me on the right day!
I’m more comfortable in heels than I am in sneakers.
Shay Mitchell
It seems that I must bid the Muse to pack, / Choose Plato and Plotinus for a friend / Until imagination, ear and eye, / Can be content with argument and deal / In abstract things; or be derided by / A sort of battered kettle at the heel.
William Butler Yeats
I have a very basic leg. But it has a silicon cover on it. I have a flat foot leg, a high heel leg and then I have a leg which, in the winter, I have to ski in and in the summer I swap it into my roller blades.
Heather Mills
Who says we didn’t have controversial subjects on TV back in my time? Remember Bonanza? It was about three guys in high heels living together
Milton Berle
Another solid run through Central Park. Admittedly, six miles turns out to be a bad idea after a full day in heels!
Meghan Markle
I would love to design my own shoe line. Women suffer too much in heels. I want to design a line of sexy platform heels that don’t hurt.
Wynter Gordon
One moves more slowly in heels. Walking fast is neither sexy nor engaging. Nobody notices the people who race around. If you’re walking in heels, you’ve got time. It’s much more attractive.
Christian Louboutin
When my kids are in college, maybe I’ll drag my fishnets and high heels out.
Sheena Easton
Horses have hoofs to carry them over frost and snow; hair, to protect them from wind and cold. They eat grass and drink water, and fling up their heels…. Such is the real nature of horses.
I’m used to a lot of love scenes. I’m used to something that requires me to kick up my heels and wink-wink, flirt-flirt with a twirl of my skirt.
Sarah Shahi
I always travel with a fun skirt, a go-to dress you can dress up or down; walking heels & flats are a must.
Ashley Nell Tipton
It’s fun being on a TV show and not having to wear heels.
Trieste Kelly Dunn
As a child, I was prancing around in my mother’s high heels and a ra-ra skirt, singing ‘Material Girl’ into my hairbrush.
Natalie Dormer
Nothing has man invented yet that will do a better job than heels at making a good pair of legs look great, or great ones look fabulous.
Stuart Weitzman
It was fun to dance in heels, and personally, I love dancing.
Rithvik Dhanjani
I am so not a proper, good female. I can’t dance in high heels and I’m just so not girly, but then I see these men with these banging bodies, dancing in heels, singing, and having so much fun with so much make-up on. That makes me honestly want to be a better woman.
I do love wearing heels but my feet can’t be in them all day long. I want to have fun and dance so I need to be comfortable.
Kim Smith
Not everybody can say they wore heels in Paris Hilton’s closet.
Israel Broussard
For five years of my life, I was just getting by – every day was painful. I couldn’t wear heels, I couldn’t run, and I could only walk for, like, 20 minutes. That’s not living.
Lauren Wasser
I’m the girl who’s like, ‘Why wear heels when I can wear tennis shoes and be comfortable?’ I’ve always been the girl who’s like, ‘Let’s go play basketball.’
Kyla Pratt
At least once in their life, every man should feel what it’s like to wear high heels.
Andrew W.K.
I don’t wear heels every day, but when I’m out, that’s how I feel confident.
Victoria Beckham
There’s nothing like a good pair of heels.
Bridget Moynahan
I am beguiled by your physical beauty, and I am moved by how head-over-heels in love with books you are. And nowhere else have I found such thoughtful and literate reportage on the state of the American soul, as that soul makes itself known in the books we write.
Kurt Vonnegut
Benvolio- “By my head, here come the Capulets.” Mercutio- “By my heel, I care not.
William Shakespeare
I prefer jeans to a suit, sneakers to high heels, markets to malls.
Tzipi Livni
I came along the decade after the generation where a lot of heels were still getting stabbed, so I was always looking for it. I had a bullet-proof vest in a couple places.
Jim Cornette
Is there anything more attractive than a woman in high heels and low self esteem?
Dov Davidoff
I design flats like I design heels: They must be seductive, beautiful and comfortable.
Edgardo Osorio
Girls can do everything men can do…just backwards and in heels
Ginger Rogers
I don’t think it’s the function of Congress to function well. It should drag its heels on the way to decision.
Barber Conable
What does it matter if a few barking dogs snap at the heels of the weary travelers? … The caravan moves on
Bruce R. McConkie
If you’re short, don’t wear extremely high heels. After a certain age, you shouldn’t wear little girls’ clothes. That’s going against your nature.
Diane von Furstenberg
I only wear heels when a stylist puts me in them.
Ginnifer Goodwin
Luke moved as silently as fog, while Maryse’s heels sounded like gunshots on the marble floor. Clary wondered if Isabelle’s propensity for unsuitable footwear was genetic.
Cassandra Clare
I live in heels. Give me a pair of flip-flops and I’ll trip all over myself.
Brenda Song
Most people feel weird about white heels, but I love them and wear them with everything, especially when I need to mix up an all-black outfit.
Katherine Schwarzenegger
Our TV and movie cops are usually in heels and pencil skirts.
Allison Tolman
I really associate glamor with being happy. If you put on high heels and lipstick or get a new outfit, you feel great.
Amanda Lepore
We are not doomed to an ultimate conflict with no hope of resolution. The message of the Scripture is one of victory – full, final and ultimate victory. It is not our doom that is certain, but Satan’s. His head has been crushed by the heel of Christ, who is the Alpha and Omega.
R. C. Sproul
I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel: “As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal; Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel, Since God is marching on.
Julia Ward Howe
Fashion brings out what you are inside. A lot of people think it’s got to be blue jeans, a Black coat, three inch heels. But it doesn’t have to be like that. I enjoy just going for it
Nicola Roberts
If I had my way, I’d wear jewelry, a great pair of heels and nothing else.
Jada Pinkett Smith
I’m always running up and down buildings or around 800-acre properties for work – you can’t do that in heels or flip-flops!
Ivanka Trump
I’m all about a flat shoe. It takes a lot to get me into a heel!
Rachael Taylor
Anybody who can step out of the house with a pair of heels and some lipstick on their lips is my hero.
Despite my love affair with skyscraper heels, luckily for my feet I rarely wear them – preferring, instead, the comfort and child-handling practicalities of a pair of trainers.
Sheherazade Goldsmith
Women boxers prefer to focus on the win rather than the bravado. We’ve come a long way. In the ’90s, you only ever saw women parading in heels and a bikini holding a scorecard. Now we’re owning it; we should get some male models in Speedos to do the ring walk.
Nicola Adams
I’m one of those girls that, day-to-day, I’m in trainers or Converse. I have about 50 pairs of trainers, so when I get the chance to dress up, I will definitely be in heels. 100 percent. I might take some battered Converse in my bag to wear at the after-party when my feet are tired.
Bel Powley
I would splurge on a great pair of high heels, because you can wear them to something fancy, but regular clothes? I’d rather go on a trip than spend $10,000 on clothes, and fly first class as a treat.
Keri Russell
I’m always the girl at the party who, within five minutes, has taken my heels off, hitched up my dress in my knickers, and probably spilt drink down my cleavage.
Sadie Frost
What is sexual in a high heel is the arch of the foot, because it is exactly the position of a woman’s foot when she orgasms… So putting your foot in a heel, you are putting yourself in a possibly orgasmic situation.
Christian Louboutin
I hate my feet. I don’t like my hands, either: they’re like lions’ paws. When I was in the Boosh, in a catsuit and gold heels, I was constantly thinking, ‘I hate the way I look.’ I should have just enjoyed myself, because that was as good as it was going to get.
Noel Fielding
All young people want to kick up their heels and defy convention; most of them would prefer to do it at a not too heavy cost.
Elmer Davis
Have I ever told you how scary it is that you think of heels in terms of their possible shiv potential?
Jennifer Estep
Joy cannot be held at heel: it must be let go. Joy is a pilgrim virtue. It is a gift that walks, walks on the path of life, that walks with Jesus: preaching, proclaiming Jesus, proclaiming joy, lengthens and widens that path.
Pope Francis
It is not being out at heels that makes a man discontented, it is being out at heart. To be contented is to be good friends with yourself.
Bliss Carman
If I’m DJing a show, I will normally wear the designer I’m DJing for; if I’m DJing a party, I will most likely be wearing very high heels.
Chelsea Leyland
It’s unarguable that the right shoes can really add elegance to an outfit and to the person who’s wearing them. Take a pair of high heels, for instance. Suddenly, you’re looking taller, shoulders back, body curved.
Kareena Kapoor
During that Grammy moment, when I nearly collapsed, I was thinking, Are you kidding me? I’ve always been really good with my heels. Even pregnant, I could perform in heels. Note to self: Never wear a train onstage.
Christina Aguilera
The highest heels I do are six-inch heels – but mostly only dancers can wear them, since they are used to being on point in ballet shoes. Their feet are arched.
Christian Louboutin
Who doesn’t want to be, like, five inches taller whenever they can be? If boys could, they’d be wearing heels.
Priyanka Chopra
It’s women who have embraced their own sexuality, it’s why women wear makeup, it’s why they wear high heels. It’s what civilization is all about.
Hugh Hefner
From the first time I harangued my mother into buying me a pair of platform sandals at the irascible and persistent age of 11, I’ve worn heels.
Mary H.K. Choi
I’ve worn my share of dresses and heels in my career. It’s easy. It’s not very challenging. It’s not fulfilling.
Melanie Scrofano
I got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I’m feeling alive
Lana Del Rey
We shouldn’t demonize the woman who wears high heels and we shouldn’t demonize the woman who doesn’t wear high heels. We should accept all forms of comportment.
Laverne Cox
I don’t have any rules about what to wear when I go out. I go through phases. Sometimes I’ll go out in jeans and a top and not even wear heels. Sometimes I want to be more sexy, in a dress and heels.
Sara Sampaio
I love fast cars, loud guns and classic rock ‘n’ roll, but I’d never do any of it in
flats. I love me a nice, big uncomfortable pair of heels and some big hair! Maybe
it’s a Southern thing, but I love dressing up. It’s everything I can do not to leave
the house in a goddamn prom dress every day.
Amber Heard
I try to wear a dress and heels when I want to make more of an effort and be a bit more feminine.
Domino Kirke
I like to wear colourful clothes because they make me feel happy: short-shorts with funky tights and big jumpers are what I’m into. And I wear most things with hi-top trainers – I’m not a huge fan of heels.
Eliza Doolittle
I am not looking for a life partner right now. But if I’ve to list out the requirements, I have a huge list. But the first requirement is he should be tall and should be taller than me; even I wear heels.
Rakul Preet Singh
I always knew where I needed to go but I sometimes had a problem getting there, so I had to work harder at it. Once in a while I’d wanna take off the blouse and heels because I’d get that “I just wanna be a guy” feeling I had when growing up.
Philip Seymour Hoffman
I think a lot of people know me for just wearing cut-off denim shorts, an oversized white T-shirt with a pair of high-heels. I usually do wear basic stuff. Jeans and a white T is my go-to look.
Erin Wasson
I’m 5’11, so when I wear heels, it’s definitely a really good view that I have. I’m, like, 6’2 when I wear heels, so I tend to wear cowboy boots a lot.
Taylor Swift
Every stylish girl knows that when the sun goes down, the heel goes up.
Nina Garcia
I am just as comfortable in sweats and sneakers as I am in a dress and heels. Attitude is everything!
Blac Chyna
I have a black pair of suede Jimmy Choos. I’ve only worn them once to a Sony event. The heels have these arrow plates in a pattern. There’s gold, black and white and they’re amazing!
Jessica Mauboy
As the saying goes, I have big heels to fill.
John F. Kerry
Literally, these [heels] slow you down.
Kristen Stewart
War crushes with bloody heel all justice, all happiness, all that is Godlike in man. In our age there can be no peace that is not honorable; there can be no war that is not dishonorable.
Charles Sumner
I thought we came out with too much respect at the beginning of the game and were on our heels instead of coming out attacking the way we did the last few games without Ricky and Kevin.
Dwane Casey
I was inspired more by early Bette Midler. I do wear a fancy dress and very high heels – and extra high hair. My goal is to obliterate all earnestness.
Ana Gasteyer
I can be an incredibly fabulous person, and I don’t have to be in the highest heels, the tallest wig, the skimpiest outfit.
James St. James
One thing I quickly discovered as a female pilot – ditch the heels!
Zoey Tur
I have this fear of falling in front of large groups of people. That’s why I tend not to wear heels.
Taylor Swift
Prince would have been the person I thought would live forever because of the way he took care of himself – not counting the fact he jumped off risers in 6-inch heels. He probably had fractures from his feet all the way up to his head.
Stevie Nicks
I’d already decided I wanted to design shoes after I saw a sign in the Museum of African and Oceanic Art forbidding high heels. Well, who could resist?
Christian Louboutin
I’m working on a second cookbook and am working on my love story, ‘Black Heels to Tractor Wheels.
Ree Drummond
I actually think I think better in high heels.
Theresa May
I, a woman, find wearing high heels agreeable only on the very rare occasion that (1) I will be ferried between destinations upon a palanquin or (2) I am going to a cocktail party and, at five feet two, don’t want to spend the evening discussing the latest movies with somebody’s nipples.
Lauren Collins
People walk differently in high heels. Your body sways to a different kind of tempo.
Manolo Blahnik
But don’t tell me I’m not sensitive to beauty. That’s my Achilles’ heel, and don’t you forget it. To me, everything is beautiful. Show me a pink sunset and I’m limp, by God.
J. D. Salinger
I never have had blonde hair. I have never had straight hair. I never wear pink clothes or spray tan and I never wore heels to school.
Carly Chaikin
I couldn’t care less about walking down the red carpet in a pair of heels and a posh frock. I’d rather be in my pyjamas at home.
Sophia Myles
My women students openly admit that they dress for interviews like dates, hoping to look their best: makeup, high heels, a well-fitting suit that shows off their figure. And I always tell them to make sure to wear a shirt under the suit jacket. Form fitting, yes. Cleavage, no.
Susan Estrich
I like to wear classic silhouettes and add a punch to it. I’ll wear a high-waist legging and a super-crop top or a see-through top with a nice bra underneath. And I just always try to mix it up with heels or something.
Serena Williams
I love heels! I especially like heels by Nicholas Kirkwood, Jimmy Choo and Moschino.
Joanne Froggatt
Well, you won’t unless you come to lunch with me,” Cal said. “I’m holding it for ransom. There’s a gun to its heel right now.” “I have lunch at my desk,” Min began, and thought,Oh, for crying out loud, could I beany more pathetic ? “Emilio is experimenting with a lunch menu. He needs you. I need you.
Jennifer Crusie
People say I’m wearing heels because I’m short. I wear heels because the women like ’em.
You want to enjoy your night, and you don’t want to suffer in your heels too long. Lipstick compensates for the lack of heels. It’s a good option, and it works.
Elodie Yung
I feel most bossy in jeans, a white t-shirt, a leather jacket and some heels. I just feel bossy that way. I also feel confident in a sick dress at a premiere. Like most women, as long as I’m comfortable in it, I feel confident.
Tika Sumpter
Men don’t wear high heels, and they don’t make allowances for women who do. Tottering down the corridors of power in beautiful but crippling stilettos telegraphs your preference for style over substance.
Donna Brazile
When liberals start acting like they’re opposed to pre-marital sex and mothers having careers, you know McCain’s vice presidential choice has knocked them back on their heels.
Ann Coulter
I don’t actually do any exercise, which is really bad. But I wear heels a lot. My theory is that it’s painful, so it’s gotta do something.
Karen Gillan
Usually, what I do if I want to dress things up is I don’t go for high heels, but I go for mid-heels instead.
Jessica Jung
I just want to say, that if Jesus were alive, what would he be doing? Well, he would probably be accepting and loving people how they’re made. And I always say this and it’s really the truth. If being 4’11 was a sin, what would I do? Well, I could wear heels and I could add a wig.
Kristin Chenoweth
It’s only over time that you get to exploring or adding nuances to the character. Like my part in ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ – I am so not the person who wears high heels and totters about like a poodle.
Kalki Koechlin
How I stay in shape? 12 hours a day in heels, I’m, literally moving all day long in heels.
Victoria Silvstedt
Oh, completely liberating because even if you don’t do a woman right, you just have to put on high heels a wig, a bra and a dress, and I feel liberated.
Kevin McDonald
Anybody who has political ambition has an Achilles heel.
James Callis
I’m very clumsy, so I learned to walk very slowly wearing heels every day.
Becca Kufrin
Pity the planet, all joy gone from this sweet volcanic cone; peace to our children when they fall in small war on the heel of small war–until the end of time to police the earth, a ghost orbiting forever lost in our monotonous sublime
Robert Lowell
Conformism is so hot on the heels of the mass-produced avant-garde that the ‘ins’ and the ‘outs’ change places with the speed of mach 3.
Igor Stravinsky
For women raised in the ’70s, high heels can still carry a stigma; they’re associated with being stupid, with just wanting to please a man. Other women find them empowering.
Christian Louboutin
The foolish think the Eagle weak, and easy to bring to heel. The Eagle’s wings are silken, but its claws are made of steel.
Sidney Sheldon
You could adjust the punishment to fit the infraction. Even a small fine would be enough to bring an errant government to heel.
George Soros
Here’s your enemy for this week, the government says. And some gullible Americans click their heels and salute – often without knowing who or even where the enemy of the week is.
Charley Reese
I can be an incredibly fabulous person, and I don’t have to be in the highest heels, the tallest wig, the skimpiest outfit. I can let other things speak for me now.
James St. James
Why don’t you click your heels three times and go back to Africa.
Dave Chappelle
I really like crop tops. I like how you can dress them up or down, with jeans or a skirt and heels. I like to be showy and cute. I don’t want to be in just a jacket and pants and boots.
McKayla Maroney
Wearing a corset, a ball gown, heels and a swan hat with wings to fight in the forest gave me a whole new appreciation for everyday clothes, because you really become that alter ego while wearing those costumes in those environments on the set. They just influenced everything you tried to do.
Lily Collins
I think the sexiest thing about a woman is confidence, but confidence in a humble way, not in an arrogant way. Sense of humor is definitely important. And sunglasses always hide a multitude of sins. Sunglasses and a great pair of heels can turn most outfits around.
Victoria Beckham
For anyone who has ever stood before a bathroom mirror and secretly thanked The
Academy, a hilarious guide to becoming ‘It’ in an age where the line between fame
and infamy is as fine as a Manolo Blahnik stiletto heel.
Bonnie Fuller
Everyone chases after happiness, not noticing that happiness is right at their heels.
Bertolt Brecht
Lightnin’ Hopkins taught us, “the rubber on a wheel is faster than the rubber on a heel” and Muddy Waters taught us “you don’t have to be the best one; just be a good ‘un” .. that just about says it all, always strive to be a good ‘un.
Billy Gibbons
Putting facts by the thousands, into the world, the toes take off with an appealing squeak which the thumping heel follows confidentially, the way men greet men. Sometimes walking is just such elated pumping.
Lyn Hejinian
I’m not really a girlie. I can be once in a while, but then I tend to fall off the heels.
Rhona Mitra
For shoes I try to choose a bootie style and opt for a heel that looks good but allows me to get around.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
I did ride a bike on the streets of Manhattan with four-and-a-half inch heels. Is that fun… or a death wish? You tell me. I was in severe pain, and everyone was laughing at me. That was great. I like when people laugh at me when I’m in pain.
Miriam Shor
The Organization of American States couldn’t pour piss out of a boot if the instructions were written on the heel.
Lyndon B. Johnson
As I try to get around with a guitar, a banjo and a suitcase of high heels and dresses, I treasure that little ukulele.
Valerie June
I’m very sensitive. Because my mum was my primary emotional caregiver growing up, I found myself being pinned into dresses, darting her dresses, choosing her high heels for the evening or what to wear. I’m very much a mommy’s boy.
Tom Hardy
I am still head over heels in love with my Kohinoor, Yousuf Sahab, the way I was when I first felt attracted to him as a 12 year-old.
Saira Banu
I’m a director, but I gotta have the hair, the makeup and the heels. My mother would be appalled if I didn’t dress up.
Nicole Holofcener
I don’t know any neighborhoods where everyone’s walking around in seven-inch heels and perfect makeup.
Melissa McCarthy
Style depends more on how you carry yourself in the clothes than the clothes alone, but a killer pair of heels doesn’t hurt.
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff
And the people next door oppress me all night long. I tell them, I work all day, a man’s got to have some time to learn to play the tuba. That’s oppression, that is. If I’m not under the heel of the oppressor, I don’t know who is.
Terry Pratchett
The heel is engineering in itself. This little thing that supports the human weight has to have a precise balance.
Christian Louboutin
By five or six, when the heels start to hurt, I kick off my shoes and walk bare feet. But that’s not a big deal. Nobody else is at the office at that time, and as for singing loudly, I don’t sing loudly. I might hum a tune at times when I am thinking about something, but that’s all fine.
Indra Nooyi
I know historians aren’t supposed to fall in love with their own theories, but I was head over heels about the notion of an entire band of female French agents, like a nineteenth-century Charlie’s Angels. Only better. It made the Pink Carnation’s organization look positively humdrum.
Lauren Willig
…make time for one another. Don’t forget about those date nights. Put on a sexy dress and some sexy high heels and have a great night and enjoy each other. Also, incorporate your husband. Get him involved and let him know how important he is with taking care of your joy.
Tia Mowry
High heels empower women in a way.
Christian Louboutin
I do not impersonate females! How many women do you know who wear seven inch heels, four foot wigs, and skintight dresses?
Forgiveness is the scent that the rose leaves on
the heel that crushes it.
John Arnott
If you’re wearing ballerina flats during the day, throw on a pair of strappy sandals with a heel on them and some little bangles and you can go from day to evening really just with a change of accessories.
Peter Som
Tis not seasonable to call a man traitor, that has an army at his heels.
John Selden
Dancing is still the hardest profession. Gene Kelly said dancing is a man’s game Women have to do the same thing in heels, and have to sing and smile at the same time. Professional athletes don’t even have to do that – and they get to wear sneakers.
Mitzi Gaynor
I still get butterflies when I’m doing a runway show. The music starts, you’re wearing these gorgeous clothes and your nervous about your high heels, if your shoes are going to break, if your going to slip or do something wrong.
Joan Smalls
I’ll never forget the dance number that I shot with Anushka. The choreography involved a lot of intricate dance moves. I’m at least 7 inches shorter than Anushka, so I had to wear the highest heels I’ve ever worn in my life; throughout the song, I even injured my knee a couple of times.
Nithya Menen
you boys can keep your virgins give me hot old women in high heels with asses that forgot to get old.
Charles Bukowski
Drag queens in the UK, they survive it all – there’s a hen party, a stag party, people throwing beer bottles. They work not on their heels, but on their wits.
Alan Carr
To be honest, I’m more of a sneaker person. My legs hurt if I wear heels for too long.
Tailored jackets with jeans is a great look for all ages. Dress up with a heel and pretty shirt, or just wear a smart T-shirt under the jacket.
One of the big misconceptions about me is that I walk around in mini-skirts and high heels twenty-four seven and go to the gym in heels.
Carmen Electra
Leather, high heels, and a bad attitude. Here I come.
Lady Gaga
Keep your heel, head and standards high.
Coco Chanel
It’s unarguable that the right shoes can really add elegance to an outfit and to the person who’s wearing them. Take a pair of high heels, for instance. Suddenly, you’re looking taller, shoulders back, body curved.
Kareena Kapoor Khan
I’m not a huge dancer onstage. In fact, I like not moving at all if I don’t have to. But even just standing up for any given amount of time in 6-inch heels ends up leaving me feeling like I’ve been cracked in half like a rag doll after a few shows.
And if I don’t want you to? (Ravyn) You know, you’d look really weird in a dress and high heels. (Susan) What’s that supposed to mean? (Ravyn) It means you’re not my mother. Now stop arguing and help me find my shoes. (Susan)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
When I’m in heels – and I live in heels – I take on a different posture, a different attitude, different energy.
Toks Olagundoye
There comes a point where certain things are becoming my Achilles heel; you know when you start repeating yourself and saying the same anecdotes over and over again you start slowly hating yourself.
Karen Elson
Faith seems to grab people and not let go, but hope is a double-crosser. It can beat it on you anytime; it’s your job to dig in your heels and hang on. Must be nice to have hope in your pocket, like loose change you could jingle through your fingers.
Judy Blundell
I feel like heels must be a workout! I know that they’re really bad for you, but I run around in heels a lot and go up a lot of stairs, so maybe that’s my terrible workout. I know that’s not really a workout.
Blake Lively
Donald Trump may be the loudest voice in the Republican presidential field, but on his heels is the candidate quietly surging to the front of the pack: Ben Carson.
Hallie Jackson
I’m a heel man. There’s no doubt about that. I’ve always done heels for my shows, ever since the first in 2008.
Christian Cota
I’m not a big heel person anyways, I’ll wear them on the red carpet, but I’ve always been the one who loves loafers and brogues.
Jaime King
I used to wear heels because I wanted to show people I wasn’t ashamed of being tall.
Elle Macpherson
People associate pageants with glamour, where there are celebrities walking on the ramp wearing beautiful gowns, heels and make-up – but that’s just one aspect.
Manushi Chhillar
The carnal contact side by side, from heel to armpit, brings shudders that shake up nature like the flights of nocturnal birds.
Louis Aragon
A good man’s fortune may grow out at heels.
William Shakespeare
I was the one who taught my sister and my niece how to walk in high heels.
John Barrowman
Red carpet is always fun, but you’re never going to see me on the street or in the grocery store in 6-inch heels. But I am always going to have big, fabulous hair and makeup.
Jessie James Decker
You know, when you go to weddings, you see these guys wearing those dress shoes with extra inches of heels? I really don’t like those.
Jessica Jung
One day I decided I was a star and I would walk to school with my head held high. I would walk to school in my stilettos and high heels, listening to ‘Lucky’ by Britney Spears.
Bretman Rock
Because I knew we were going to wear five inches during the pageant, I would train with six inches. So, when it was time to wear the five-inch heels, they felt like nothing to me.
Pia Wurtzbach
I always have a pair of heels and flats for my back-to-back hours of live shots. I’m happiest and most comfortable wearing my boots.
Kristen Welker
I’ve never been the type of singer that can sing in heels and the gown and all this stuff, because I can’t get to where I want to go while I’m in that getup.
Rene Marie
Once we are fed, heated, housed and healthy, our extra consumption inevitably has an element of luxury about it. And once luxury enters the scene, the practicalities are in trouble, as women who wear expensive stiletto heels can testify.
Evan Davis
I have been obsessed with seamed stockings my whole life, and I would collect vintage ones that were made in the ’40s and ’50s with the authentic styling of the keyhole, the welt, the reinforced toe and heels, French or Cuban heels, and hand-stitched seams.
Dita Von Teese
My parents couldn’t afford physical therapy, so they sent me to dancing school. I learned how to dance in heels, which means I can walk in heels. And I’m from Jersey, and we are really concerned with being chic, so if my friends wore heels, so did I.
Maysoon Zayid
I appreciate my true fans for enjoying me in what I do every day, whether interviews or playing heel. They are smart and nice people.
Alberto Del Rio
If a French woman wears jeans, it’s never with flats – always heels.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld
I love heels… whoever created heels is amazing!
Katie Cassidy
I wear high heels for long legs.
Georgia May Jagger
I don’t really believe there is such a thing as bad fashion – it is all self-expression, which used to get me into trouble when I was a little girl because I think I started wearing heels when I was about ten, and I always refused to wear matching socks.
Lydia Hearst
I love high heels from the age of 10! Short skirts and then high heels. My classmates used to make fun of me. Like, ‘Ooh, she’s so skinny and she’s wearing high heels.’ But I just wore what I like, and I didn’t care about people’s opinions, the same as I don’t care now.
Irina Shayk
You show me a politician with his heels ten feet in the air, and by Judas priest, Ill show you an honest politician.
Dalton Trumbo
Yeah, I’m nervous. I’m wearing heels in public for crying out loud.
Sandra Bullock
There are only two secrets to a slimmer shape … High heels and shoulder pads!
Cathy Guisewite
My style during the day is very casual – boyfriend jeans, T-shirts, Converse, Uggs, whatever. At night, I love heels and thigh-highs, I like something fresh and new, and I’m not afraid to push the envelope.
Katie Cassidy
I hate the word proper. If you tell me a thing is not proper, I immediately feel the most rabid desire to go ‘neck and heels’ into it.
Fanny Fern
I’d like to be smart, fun, and real. It’s very easy to just put together a pretty dress, some heels, and some jewels. I don’t want to be that girl. It’s all about being brave, taking risks. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.
Ella Purnell
Once again I feel beneath my heels the ribs of Rocinante. Once more, I’m on the road with my shield on my arm.
Che Guevara
My prom dress was very sweet, very puffy, but I also wore little stiletto, pointed-toe heels, nylon hosiery, the whole nine yards.
Betsey Johnson
Just like girls need to learn to be comfortable in heels before they go out in them for the first time, a man should try wearing a suit throughout a normal day. I do most things in a suit-and sometimes even in a tuxedo-and so I’m really comfortable in one.
Tom Ford
The higher the better. It’s more about an attitude. High heels empower women in a way.
Christian Louboutin
To feel like a woman, wear heels, to feel like a goddess, wear five inches.
Christian Louboutin
The few love affairs which had come my way had been rather silly and sordid. They had not revealed the possibilities of love; in fact I had thought it a somewhat overrated pleasure, a brief and brutal blindness with boredom and disgust hard on its heels.
Aleister Crowley
I love and adore Salman Khan. Every year I see him on Bigg Boss’ and I just freeze. I’m head over heels with his eyes and smile. He is a very charming personality.
Jasmin Bhasin
When a woman puts on a heel, she has a different posture, a different attitude. She really stands up and has a consciousness of her body.
Christian Louboutin
I want to die with my high heels on, still in action.
Bette Davis
I wish that I wasn’t such an odd mixture. I wish I was serious, but I do love high heels and romantic comedies: being in them and watching them.
Alice Eve
I was an avid reader as a child. I am losing that habit now, as my brain congeals into cabbage from wearing too many heels and too much foundation.
Swara Bhaskar
It’s true I always like to mix femininity and something a bit masculine. It’s the reason I love skirts with high heels and tights, and no handbag because I love having my hands in my pockets.
Carine Roitfeld
You can’t do TLC dances successfully in high heels.
Rozonda Thomas
When I was seven and we lived in New York, I ran away. I took my dog and started out across the Brooklyn Bridge… I didn’t get very far… It’s rather difficult to run away in your mother’s high heels.
Lee Radziwill
… I stayed because running seemed too strange and too complicated. All I knew was how to fall back, find a patch of solid ground, and then dig my heels in and fight to start over.
Tana French
It’s important to show that there’s different ways of doing things. Some people like to be glamorous, and that’s perfectly fine, and that’s amazing. If I were that style, then I would do that. I’d wear heels every day, and I’d strut around in a dress, but that’s not me.
Alessia Cara
I’m a master of heels. I’m used to them. I’m tiny, so I wear them all the time. Apart from to the beach. That would be slightly psycho. I’m over the top, but not that much yet.
Josephine de La Baume
My poor, problematic feet don’t let me wear anything much over a three- or four-inch heel.
Gillian Jacobs
I always wear high heels – I simply feel naked without them.
Donatella Versace
I hate the idea of natural. For example, I prefer gardens to wild nature. I like to see the human touch. High heels are a complete invention – an extravagance. They’re far from natural, but it’s the impracticality that I adore. I prefer the useless to the useful, the sophisticated to the natural.
Christian Louboutin
Well-apparel’d April on the heel
Of limping Winter treads.
William Shakespeare
I broke my ankle ten years ago so high heels are not an option unless I’m literally going door to door for a function.
Britt Ekland
Sometimes it’s so weird just to do an interview. This morning I was back in my parents’ house, with my brother, and we went for a jog together, then had breakfast as a family. And a couple of hours later I’m wearing high heels and a dress and makeup, and talking about my job.
Carey Mulligan
I’ve embraced comfortable, but still chic, footwear. I don’t know who I was wearing heels for – as much as I love the way they make my legs look and the power I feel when I choose to wear them – but I can do a longer and more pressing day if I’m in a shoe I can walk in.
Catherine Reitman
My dream is a red dress Above my knees High-heel red sandals And me coming over the top The music booming
Hi Howie I will say
With a lovely smile I don’t want to play the game I want to be it.
Nikki Giovanni
I don’t like to be too submissive in the way I dress. I like quite boyish things, so I hardly ever wear high heels.
Bat for Lashes
Yeah, I screamed in Daniel Radcliffe’s face. We were both doing Letterman. I grabbed him by the shoulder. Of course, I’m in 6-inch heels. That makes me 6-foot-4. I’m towering over him, saying, ‘I love Harry Potter!’ His security people were nodding to each other – should we go?
Jennifer Lawrence
The world expected girls to pluck and primp and put on heels. Meanwhile, boys dressed in rumpled T-shirts and baggy pants and misplace their combs, and yet you were suppose to fall at their feet? Unacceptable.
Libba Bray
Being wanted is the tender heel of everything human.
Jacquelyn Mitchard
I’d rather kill myself than dress like Victoria Beckham in towering heels day after day.
Britt Ekland
Heels, and shoes in general, are such an easy way to complete any outfit and give it that little bit of flare or edge you want.
Jeffree Star
Now, after divorce with Tom Cruise, I can wear heels.
Nicole Kidman
I’m either in one of two things: high heels or cowboy boots.
Lydia Hearst
It is commonly a dangerous thing for a man to have more sense than his neighbors. Socrates paid for his superiority with his life; and if Aristotle saved his skin, it was by taking to his heels in time.
Christoph Martin Wieland
Typically, I’m put in high heels and a tight top, which is not my personality at all.
Janet Varney
I had these shoes made and 2 to 3 inch lifts inside and the heel was another 2 and half inches. I walked around that way, wherever I could without falling over.
Bobby Darin
They say the path of true love never runs smooth. Well, Luke and my true love’s path didn’t run at all, it limped along in new boots that were chafing its heels. Blistered and cut, red and raw, every hopping, lopsided step, a little slice of agony.
Marian Keyes
I do not care that the people is for or against me. The important thing is that I am appreciated by a response of boos or cheers. This is the important thing. it is important that people see me as a superstar talent that they want to see. I enjoy being heel.
Alberto Del Rio
The principal reason, invariably, most “successful” giant companies rather quickly become also-rans, or just amorphous blobs on the competitive landscape, is their failure to re-tool in anything like a fundamental way. In fact, the worse things get, typically, the more they dig in their heels and defend yesterday’s turf.
Tom Peters
Put a pair of high heels on a fellow and just look what he was reduced to.
Celeste Bradley
A cause may be inconvenient, but it’s magnificent. It’s like champagne or high heels, and one must be prepared to suffer for it.
Arnold Bennett
In politics, sometimes, you dig your heels in and draw a line in the sand and refuse to compromise.
Clive Lewis
If I went out in killer heels and full makeup, blow dry, the whole thing — anyone dressed up like that could be intimidating to men and women, really. It’s so, look at me. Do you know what I mean? But I love women.
Rachel Weisz
We live with our heels as well as head and most of our pleasure comes in that way.
John Muir
I cannot become who I want to be by remaining who I am. So, I decided to kick off my high heels and replace them with the shoes of a director.
Kashmira Shah
I still get butterflies when I’m doing a runway show. The music starts, you’re wearing these gorgeous clothes and your nervous about your high heels, if your shoes are going to break, if your going to slip or do something wrong.
Karlie Kloss
My mom has a big ol’ crush on Arne Duncan, so I hear about and see pics of him all the time. I think he could look great in heels!
Justin Tranter
I think because I was Miss World, and I modeled for a little while, I have – I just like heels, actually. I think that’s the truth. I’m trying to find an excuse.
Priyanka Chopra
Time wounds all heels.
Groucho Marx
Some girls say they don’t feel comfortable in flats, they only feel comfortable in heels; I am not one of those girls.
Gillian Jacobs
I’m like a cartoon! I’ll look this way when I’m eighty. I can see it now, people will be rolling me around in a wheelchair and I’ll still have my big hair, nails, my high heels and my boobs stuck out!
Dolly Parton
I wore my first pair of Louboutins during this press tour. It was absolutely amazing, they weren’t heels, they were little shoes, but they were velvet and they were blue.
Chloe Grace Moretz
I feel like there’s no need to put on a heel that’s too high. There’s nothing cute about wobbling. There’s nothing cute about not wanting to dance or walk somewhere because you’re in pain.
Yara Shahidi
Forests precede us and deserts dog our heels.
Derrick Jensen
Shut up, Nick. (Talon) ‘Shut up, Nick, heel, sit, fetch.’ Love you too, Celt. (Nick)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
We run down the right fork, Manchee at our heels, the night and a dusty road stretching out in front of us, an army and a disaster behind us, me and Viola, running side by side.
Patrick Ness
It feels otherworldly to wear heels and makeup. Why fit in when you can stand out?
Ritika Singh
The trails of the world be countless, and most of the trails be tried; You tread on the heels of the many, till you come where the ways divide;And one lies safe in the sunlight, and the other is dreary and wan,But you look aslant at the Lone Trail, and the Lone Trail lures you on.
Robert W. Service
A great licentiousness treads on the heels of a reformation.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I kind of felt like maybe I didn’t have what it took to look like a supermodel and wear high heels all the time and my nails.
First of all, most traders don’t have a winning strategy. Second, even among those traders who do, many don’t follow their strategy. Trading puts pressure on weaker human traits and seems to seek out each individual’s Achilles’ heel.
Gil Blake
Research suggests that investment bankers are more prone to commit fraud when they feel the competitor at their heels.
Charles Duhigg
I think it was about 1990 when we first wore heels to perform.
Keren Woodward
When you fall head over heels for someone, you’re not falling in love with who they are as a person; you’re falling in love with your idea of love.
Elisabeth Rohm
In falling over in heels while trying to look attractive, you don’t just hurt your body, you bear the humiliation of injuring your very soul. Physical pain? Whatever, bring it on. But the humiliation? Oh, you have seen to the very weakest part of me.
Kate Reardon
The general assumption, which I think is a valid one, is that a lot of the major media were on their heels a little bit and prone to share the grief of the nation and to give Bush all the support it could.
Seymour Hersh
I started doing flats because women would always apologize for wearing them when they met me, as if they had to be in heels when meeting a shoe designer.
Edgardo Osorio
What can I say? I feel good when I’m wearing heels. I feel sexier, attractive.
Blake Lively
When I have a big enough handbag to carry a little pair of booties with, I always do – those pointy Christian Louboutin heels are just no fun to walk around in.
Anna Kendrick
I’m terrible in high heels. I’m so bad.
Lara Stone
Take everything you can get over in center. The Dago’s heel is hurting pretty bad.
Casey Stengel
Theres a real power in heels and a good dress.
Talulah Riley
Still on it creeps, Each little moment at another’s heels, Till hours, days, years, and ages are made up Of such small parts as these, and men look back Worn and bewilder’d, wondering how it is.
Joanna Baillie
Do you know how hard it is to play a character where you’re always in heels? Oh, my goodness!
Serinda Swan
You want safe? Find a nice puppy you can train to come heel. Love’s supposed to be scary. Because if there’s no fear, there’s no thrill.
Nora Roberts
When you elevate the heels more so than you elevate the sole of the foot, you trigger a cascade of compensations in the knees and hips that cause tight hip flexors, and then those hip flexors cause lower-back pain.
Tim Ferriss
Bringing the IRS to heel can start with re-energizing and expanding congressional investigations and holding accountable those responsible for the targeting and other abuses.
Cleta Mitchell
I’m still a really shy performer and can’t wear high heels and need to be with bare feet.
Domino Kirke
There’s not much to say about acting but this. Never settle back on your heels. Never relax. If you relax, the audience relaxes. And always mean everything you say.
James Cagney
When I was 22, I thought I couldn’t wear heels because of my height.
Rebecca Hall
I’m typically not a heels person.
Jenny Lewis
I am not the sort of woman who would wear high heels with a bathing suit. Let’s get that straight right now.
Vera Wang
Obviously, the big hits like ‘Shout,’ ‘Everybody Wants to Rule the World,’ ‘Head Over Heels,’ we play live, so there’s nothing new about them to me.
Roland Orzabal
Already 2008 has proved a tumultuous year in terms of global perceptions of China, and there are still 59 days to go until the Beijing Olympics. The tragedy of the Sichuan earthquake followed hard on the heels of the riots in Tibet and the demonstrations surrounding the Olympic torch relay.
Martin Jacques
I dig my heels in every now and then, and think ‘I’m not going to do what’s expected or what people think is the right thing.’ So I have a little bit of that in my personality.
Nicole Kidman
I started wearing high heels when I first worked with Mario Testino. He is tall; I had to be at his height. And I have never stopped since then.
Carine Roitfeld
I feel far more empowered, sophisticated, and forward-thinking in flats than in high heels. Especially when I am working and hosting meetings.
Emilia Wickstead
When I played Candy Darling in ‘I Shot Andy Warhol,’ that was easy to play that part. They made me into a woman: I’m in heels; I’m waxed. I’m gonna find the femininity and lay on the bed and take the voice of an old movie star.
Stephen Dorff
Eight years ago, you may remember Hillary and I were rivals for the Democratic nomination. We battled for a year and a half. Let me tell you, it was tough, because Hillary was tough. I was worn out. She was doing everything I was doing, but just like Ginger Rogers, it was backwards in heels.
Barack Obama
He’s stronger than this. He’s always been stronger… (Vane) Even the mightiest oak can be felled by a whisper of a wind if it comes on the heels of a powerful enough storm. (Carson)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
If I’m dancing, I’m definitely not wearing heels. I just don’t love wearing heels. I feel it’s just a thing you have to do to keep it sexy or whatever, but I really don’t enjoy it. I just love wearing a sneaker.
Nina Agdal
A trick for looking taller is to wear a top and pants in the same color family – and to hide heels underneath the pants!
Jeanne Damas
Girls can do anything, for sure. Even running in the mud in heels.
Bryce Dallas Howard
For nighttime or for an event, I’m all about the nice heel. Something that’s still walkable but definitely very elegant.
Carly Rae Jepsen
What doctor does not need platform heels and dark black eyeliner to treat their patients?
Sarah Chalke
I like heels and make-up.
Victoria Pendleton
I can’t wear flat shoes. My feet repel them. I was in agony. My high heels had left my feet bleeding. Laugh all you want, my feet hurt
Mariah Carey
I love heels, I’m telling you. When I walk in flats, I get knee pain.
Sofia Vergara
The 880-yard heel and toe walk is the closest a man can come to experiencing the panges of childbirth.
Avery Brundage
I enjoy just showing people other sides of me, especially everyone always sees me in my helmet and ski suit. It’s nice to just show everyone me, just me in my everyday clothes or just me in high heels or just me not in my ski gear, basically.
Lindsey Vonn
I empathize with women in their high heels so I’ll be there in my kilt and T-shirt and I’ll walk around all day just to prove that if I can wear the shoes for 36 hours then certainly our customer can wear them.
Marc Jacobs
I really like the look of the 1950s, lots of suburban Americana influences. I’m 5’4′, so I like kitten heels occasionally because I can move around a bit easier, but pointy-toed pumps are very elongating.
Marina and the Diamonds
Then I thought, “No, I broke it myself. I broke it on purpose to pay myself back for being such a heel.
Sylvia Plath
Familiarity breeds attempt. Time wounds all heels. I went down on the Lower East Side today and saw all those Old Testament houses. We’re all cremated equal. We’re insufferable friends. I’ve been working my head to the bone.
Goodman Ace
Literature was not born the day when a boy crying “wolf, wolf” came running out of the Neanderthal valley with a big gray wolf at his heels; literature was born on the day when a boy came crying “wolf, wolf” and there was no wolf behind him.
Vladimir Nabokov
I have good legs, so I prefer my skirt lengths and my high heels. It’s like my uniform.
Carine Roitfeld
I smoked, I drank, I did all the kicking my heels up type things, but I went to Mass on Sunday.
Elaine Stritch
Mike’s eyes narrowed shrewdly. “Don’t kid yourself, Bella. The guy’s head over heels for you.” “I know,” I sighed. “Life is complicated.” “And girls are cruel,” Mike said under his breath.
Stephenie Meyer
Said will be a little ahead, but done should follow at his heel.
Charles Spurgeon
You know, like high heels are not – , you know the older you get the harder it is to wear them.
Rachel McAdams
When I got the call from Chippendales, my jaw dropped, as it came on the heels of TMZ calling me fat on national TV. I am passionate about health and fitness, so I’ve kept in shape, and dancing is something I’ve always enjoyed, so I figured, why not?
Ian Ziering
I have to be honest, I dont pay as much attention to womens fashion, but being a sneaker head, I do like it when a girl can rock a nice pair of sneakers. Not every girl can do it. Every girl looks good in heels – thats a given – but not every girl can look good in fresh kicks.
Bryan Greenberg
High heels were invented by a woman who had been kissed on the forehead.
Christopher Morley
I love heels. I’m 5-foot-2, and I like feeling tall.
Misty Copeland
Being steadfast and immovable with our heels in tar on the Lord’s side of the line is the only strategy that works long-term against Lucifer.
Sheri L. Dew
Hurricane Katrina, coupled with Hurricane Rita, which came promptly on Katrina’s heels, claimed more than 1,200 American lives. Together, they caused more than $200 billion in damage.
Ellen Tauscher
When I wear high heels I have a great vocabulary and I speak in paragraphs. I’m more eloquent. I plan to wear them more often.
Meg Ryan
I like to wear platform heels onstage and they’re actually hard to find. But fans started putting money in them – so now they are filled with tons of bills. It’s pretty amazing.
Taylor Momsen
Even though I’m just over 5’9”, heels make me feel feminine and fierce.
Harris Faulkner
The lion of anger shall give place to the lamb of meekness; the raven of uncleanness shall fly before the dove of purity; the vile serpent of deceit shall be trodden under the heel of truth.
Charles Spurgeon
We all know what this business can do to you… you end up walking on your heels.
Shannon Briggs
He is dead and gone, lady, He is dead and gone; At his head a grass-green turf, At his heels a stone.
William Shakespeare
I always wore the highest heels possible, because the other women on the show were tall.
Donna Mills
When I was growing up, everyone dressed the same. You had to have bootcut pants and chunky heels.
Sutton Foster
I’m in high heels, I’m wearing a fabulous dress, people want me to just smile and talk about my movie because I only have three minutes, and that’s my job.
Rosario Dawson
I’m European, I wake up in heels.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld
I’m like one of the tallest ones on ‘Scandal.’ If I’m wearing my four-inch Abby Whelan high heels, I hover over everybody. I literally have a lower pair of high heels that I wear when I do one of the scenes with the guys.
Darby Stanchfield
As a breastfeeding mother you are basically just meals on heels.
Kathy Lette
The fact is, after a certain age, high heels can feel as painful as someone sticking hot pins into the soles of your feet.
Marie Helvin
I hate walking down a runway in really high heels. I’m terrible in high heels. I’m so bad.
Lara Stone
I was always a pretty theatrical kid, a draggy kid… a little sissy. I dressed up in my grandma’s heels and clothes… It’s always been in me.
Chad Michaels
You just click your heels and think there’s no place like being pwned.
Kim Harrison
Sunglasses always hide a multitude of sins. Sunglasses and a great pair of heels can turn most outfits around.
Victoria Beckham
New Year’s Eve. It’s a promise of a night. Single, married or widowed, in love, loveless or lovelorn, we all leave our apartments and pick through snow in high heels, or descend subway stairs in tuxedos, lured to wherever we’re going–whether we know it or not, would deny it or not–by the kiss of a stranger.
Jardine Libaire
A proper lady should be able to smile pretty, wear sequins like she means it, and kick a man’s ass nine ways from Sunday while wearing stiletto heels. If she can’t do that much, she’s not trying hard enough.
Mira Grant
I have a deathly fear of mediocrity and that nips at my heels and gets me into a lot of trouble.
Courtney Love
When I was out of favor and people didn’t want that type of boot, flats, or high heels with the elegant, dainty things, it gave me much more energy.
Manolo Blahnik
Life’s too short to wear high heels.
Eva Green
Not always trainers, but if I don’t have to, I don’t wear high heels. It’s really just if something looks good on me, I’m going to buy it. It can be Zara or Chanel… I’m going to buy it.
Barbara Palvin
I have to be honest, I don’t pay as much attention to women’s fashion, but being a sneaker head, I do like it when a girl can rock a nice pair of sneakers. Not every girl can do it. Every girl looks good in heels – that’s a given – but not every girl can look good in fresh kicks.
Bryan Greenberg
Go strip off your clothes that are a nuisance in this mellow clime. Get in and wrestle with the sea; wing your heels with the skill and power that reside in you, hit the sea’s breakers, master them, and ride upon their backs as a king should.
Jack London
Some people can go out in a tight, short dress and heels, and it works, but even if I’m going to a club, I’ve got to throw on a big hoodie or something. And that’s if you can get me into something tight in the first place.
Suki Waterhouse
Looking good is a commitment to yourself and to others. Wigs, killer heels, Pilates, even fillers – whatever works for you, honey.
As women, we do feel like we have to live up to an expectation, whether it’s on camera or going to the market or whatever it is. And the truth of the matter is, that’s not always the way it is. We don’t always have our high heels on, we don’t always have our makeup on.
Jennifer Aniston
I think I’m probably much better at the boots and pocket knife thing than I am at the high heels and martini thing.
Sarah Wayne Callies
I’ve seen many dig in their heels and becoming disenchanted with the church because of these kinds of denunciations from coreligionists. We have to find a better way to witness to our faith and our convictions.
John I. Jenkins
Feeling I’d scarcely arrived at a style, I now find I’m near the end of it. I’m not quite sure what Late Style means except that it’s some sort of licence, a permit for ageing practitioners to kick their heels up.
Alan Bennett
I am really into color and bright clothing. When I’m wearing heels, I always like to throw some different colors into my outfit, so it doesn’t match. That gives my look a retro and funky feel.
Leah LaBelle
The Achilles Heel of the Americas was the lack of cultural confidence typical of new settlers.
Arthur Erickson
If y,ou do buy shoes from wherever you like wear the hell out of them, and go to your cobbler when the heels go and get them reheeled for a few quid.
Aisling Bea
Ah, beer, my one weakness. My Achille’s heel, if you will.
For me, I am a really tall woman, and I am really tall in heels, and I feel bigger, and I like being bigger. I think I was a king in a past life.
Alysia Reiner
I’ve always been a very good heel!
Ric Flair
I’ve never worn flats in my life. I haven’t owned any since I was a kid. I suppose the only flats I have are the shoes I wear to the gym, but I put them on just before I start to work out… I like heels.
Nicki Minaj
I’m amazed when I see mothers wearing high heels. If your kids run off you can’t run after them.
Claudia Schiffer
I like to walk, touch living Mother Earth—bare feet best, and thrill every step. Used to envy happy reptiles that had advantage of so much body in contact with earth, bosom to bosom. [We] live with our heels as well as head and most of our pleasure comes in that way.
John Muir
In women’s shelters the kind of clothes that women are given to go to job interviews are all girl clothes: little heels, little skirt. If you’re gender nonconforming, you’re a lesbian, you’re not going to put those clothes on to go to a job interview.
Amber Hollibaugh
Supply always comes on the heels of demand.
Robert Collier
If you don’t feel comfortable in a plunging sweater, skin-tight jeans and killer heels, go home and change.
Ines de La Fressange
Chick-lit may be staggering on its heels, but women’s fiction is alive and kicking.
Jojo Moyes
I have big feet. Do you know how embarrassing it is when you ask for a shoe and they look at you like, “No, we don’t make these heels for Bigfoot, sorry.”
Margot Robbie
Once in a while, it’s fun to dress up for a premiere. But I’m not someone that’s going to stick on heels and a dress every day.
Emilie de Ravin
The higher the heel, the more drastic it can get. But I do need heels to perform, which is strange. I can’t perform in flats because I’ve built up this…I don’t know, this sexual side that I find myself moving and getting into the music more when I’m feeling a little more feminine.
Sarah Barthel
You can be feminine and wear heels, dresses, and makeup, and still be a powerful woman – physically, mentally, emotionally.
Eve Torres
My weaknesses are women in high heels, freedom under siege, and ebay. (Steele)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
I may not have the stereotypical head for business, but I have feet that were made for heels.
Tamara Mellon
That’s a big concern right now with these storms coming on the heels of a very wet week. The soil is saturated, and the high winds that are supposed to accompany these storms could potentially knock down trees, which often take down power lines with them.
Bryan Swanson
What woman here is so enamored of her own oppression that she cannot see her heel print upon another woman’s face?
Audre Lorde
For years, reality has been nipping at the heels of satire. Now, it’s finally caught up. I don’t need to make this stuff up.
Paul Krassner
I always like to sing barefoot, but when I first started doing these dates with the symphonies, I of course thought I should clean up my act, being a Jewish girl from Long Island with a little bit of a trucker mouth. So I wore a gown and some high heels.
Idina Menzel
I think it would be a lot easier if I said, ‘I feel like a dude,’ but I was raised by a southern mom, so I know how to put on lipstick and walk in heels and rock that look. It’s exactly that juxtaposition that confuses people.
Saskia de Brauw
I would like a taller guy so I can wear high heels.
Caroline Wozniacki
Haughtiness is the high heel shoe of the low men!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I have a room full of shoes: heels and sneakers and everything.
Jennifer Winget
People talk about ‘date night,’ and it is true: Sometimes you have to apply yourself, or at least apply lipstick to yourself. You kind of have to dress up, just because. You know, wear heels to your own dinner table.
Claire Danes
I fell out of the womb and landed in my mother’s high heels.
Leslie Jordan
I’ve always been really good with my heels. Even pregnant, I could perform in heels.
Christina Aguilera
As long as you win Monaco, that’s the one. In my ten years of Formula One, I’ve only won here once. This is my second time.Every year, it feels like this is your Achilles heel. You almost have it and then you don’t. It’s such a hard race to win.
Lewis Hamilton
I’m done growing. I only grow when I put my high heels on now.
Maria Sharapova
Know what suits you. I would never wear brown, because it just doesn’t work with my pale skin and dark hair. Also I wouldn’t wear flats at night, because I love heels.
Leigh Lezark
I ruptured my plantaris muscle. It runs through the calf and goes down the side of your achilles and stretches right to the heel.
Lee Westwood
Why do you wonder that globetrotting does not help you, seeing that you always take yourself with you? The reason that set you wandering is ever at your heels.
To the question: How do the authors of sketches, stories and novels get along in life, the following answer can or must be given: They are stragglers and they are down at heel.
Robert Walser
Like at home, I don’t wear heels. But everywhere else I go, I wear heels.
Nastia Liukin
Beware the horns of a bull, the heels of the horse, and the smile of an Englishman.
James Joyce
I’ve got no anti-America or anti-Hollywood kick, it’s just that I never wanted to go and kick my heels around L.A. for six months hoping something would happen.
Martin Freeman
Sometimes, just to give the impression that you have the strength and the vitality demands a lot. You can’t always give that impression when you have heels and a wig on and it’s 40 degrees outside.
Catherine Deneuve
I’m working on a second cookbook and am working on my love story, ‘Black Heels to Tractor Wheels.’
Ree Drummond
Singing other people’s material was perceived, I think, as a weakness of my persona. The effect, though, was to make me dig my heels in and try even harder to combine the two.
Rickie Lee Jones
It has always been more difficult for a man to keep than to get; for, in the one case, fortune aids, which often assists injustice; but, in the other case, sense is required. Therefore, we often see a person deficient in cleverness rise to wealth; and then, from want of sense, roll head over heels to the bottom.
Giambattista Basile
I think our dependence on foreign oil is a real problem, potential Achilles heel, and we have to do something about it.
Condoleezza Rice
Marissa laughed, utterly delighted with her mate. “Later. Food first.” Butch settled back immediately, like she’d called his lust to a heel and it behaved because it wanted to be a good boy. As she left, the cop’s eyes followed her with rank hunger and adoration. V shook his head. “You are a total sap.
J.R. Ward
Passion’s a good, stupid horse that will pull the plough six days a week if you give him the run of his heels on Sundays. But love’s a nervous, awkward, over-mastering brute; if you can’t rein him, it’s best to have no truck with him.
Dorothy L. Sayers
What I wear is everything – from how I carry my hair to what I’m wearing on my feet. I have to feel comfortable on stage, so I like to wear things that have room. My mood changes a lot, so sometimes I wear 6-inch heels, and other times I’ll perform in bare feet.
Laura Mvula
In general, I’m rubbish in heels. I love them, and I own a lot because it’s like being in a sweet shop: they’re pretty. But I’m not good in them. I don’t walk nicely in heels.
Olivia Colman
I’m Latina. I was born with high heels. We crossed border in high heels. We were running from immigration…I can do aerobics in heels.
Eva Longoria
See, all actors pretend. I enjoy that pretence. I don’t wear heels in real life, but if it is for a character, I love to get into the traits of the person I am playing.
Sarita Choudhury
I love the shape of ’50s fashion: the clothes are very flattering; they let you out in the right places. I love high heels, too, as I’m only five foot three, although I always tell people I’m five foot five.
Imelda May
People say I am the king of painful shoes. I don’t want to create painful shoes, but it is not my job to create something comfortable. I try to make high heels as comfortable as they can be, but my priority is design, beauty and sexiness. I’m not against them, but comfort is not my focus.
Christian Louboutin
It’s hard to fight in high heels or even jeans that are too tight. You can’t kick in skinny, skinny jeans.
Krysten Ritter
I don’t wear a lot of high heels.
I do love shoes that make my legs longer. I have the upper body of someone who’s 5ft 8in, so high heels help me even out the discrepancy.
Amy Adams
I like things to feel a touch unfinished; sweatpants with heels, or tennis shoes with a trouser. Those things are important.
Jenna Lyons
Nothing burns more calories than dancing in 5-inch heels… try it!
Ariana Grande
When you’re performing, you just have to keep pushing through. You’re human, and you’re going to make mistakes. I think even Beyonce has tripped on stage, and she’s Beyonce! We’re all human beings, and sometimes we trip in our high heels! I barely perform in high heels. I don’t know how those girls do it.
Megan Nicole
Achilles, without his heel, you wouldn’t even know his name today.
Stan Lee
If a woman is bed-heady and it doesn’t look put on, it’s pretty sexy. But when a woman is wearing a really smart dress with great heels and her hair is pulled back, that’s terribly sexy too – like an Audrey Hepburn kind of thing.
Eric Mabius
So, there’s plenty of good heels in the business. I don’t see guys who can get fans to rally behind them like I do. It’s hard. It’s the hardest job in the business and I’m doing it every single night.
Matt Sydal
Me and heels are very good friends.
Emilia Clarke
Achilles only had an Achilles heel, I have an entire Achilles body.
Woody Allen
I went through this phase of Spandex, high heels, and fur coats when I was my late teens and early twenties; before then, I lived in overalls and baggy T-shirts.
Personally, I don’t really have a set style or look. It’s pretty much what I feel like wearing that day, from a floral-print dress and high heels to ripped jeans and army boots.
Shay Mitchell
Why do people care what I’m wearing or what I’m eating, and why are people looking down on me because I’m not wearing high heels? That’s the downside to being in the public eye.
Ashley Greene
Why do we wear them? They’re so painful.
Emma Thompson
If self is a location, so is love: Bearings taken, markings, cardinal points, Options, obstinacies, dug heels, and distance, Here and there and now and then, a stance.
Seamus Heaney
The God of life summons us to life; more, to be lifegivers, especially toward those who lie under the heel of the powers.
Daniel Berrigan
On my first album I was wearing a lot of guys pants, baggy clothes and stuff like that. I was 17 and I was a little tomboy. And you would never see me wearing a dress or heels on my first record.
Avril Lavigne
Love is passion, obsession, someone you can’t live without. If you don’t start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who’ll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart.
William Parrish
For a long time, because I’m pretty tall, I was scared to wear heels, but now I wear them all the time. I feel like I’m still discovering my stage style, but I love – well, I’m not a huge color person onstage, but I am in real life. I like short stuff, big heels, fringe, lots of fringe, sometimes sparkle, yeah!
Kelsea Ballerini
When I’m sitting in bed watching ‘Chopped’ – that Brie I know. But I don’t know the Brie in sky-high heels on a carpet with a bunch of people screaming at me. I wonder what she’s like.
Brie Larson
I’ve sort of always pulled for the heels, like the bad guys. So I think if I were a pro wrestler, first I’d need to bulk up, and second I’ll need to get sort of a bad-boy persona.
John Isner
Then I could not help wondering what the watching gods thought of us, with our clever masks and our jokes. What we think of crickets, perhaps, whose singing we hear with pleasure, though some of us smash them with our heels when they venture into sight.
Gene Wolfe
When I was learning to creep, my mother set me down on the beach to see what I thought of it. I crawled straight for the coming wave and was just through the wall of green when she caught my heels.
Sylvia Plath
My dad always took to his heels when a nappy change was necessary. I am so much looking forward to our child. It is such a wonderfully exciting time right now.
Bernie Ecclestone
When I moved to New York, I fell head over heels back into country music and probably ’cause I missed something about Texas.
Norah Jones
All I demand for the black man is, that the white people shall take their heels off his neck, and let him have a chance to rise by his own efforts.
William Wells Brown
I don’t know much about Hitler. Except that last thing, about the Jews. There has never been a country that put its heel down on the Jews that ever lived afterwards.
Huey Long
You have to take into account the arc of your foot when you’re buying heels.
Pia Wurtzbach
Once, I was going to a film event, and someone told me not to wear high heels to it. They said that it might intimidate the men. For some reason, I was ready to take their cue, but about an hour later, something in my head started ringing, and I thought, ‘That is the worst advice anybody’s ever given me.’
Evelyne Brochu
I think my favourite memory from filming ‘Jurassic World’ would just be a compilation of me running through the jungle in heels, and just how absurd that really was. That that actually happened.
Bryce Dallas Howard
I do feel like there are the pop stars of the world and then I’m like their dirty little sister, running around with sh*t on my face in combat boots because I can’t walk in heels.
It is all very well for so-called sensible people to recommend flat heels and short skirts, but most of us prefer not to be sensible.
Anna Held
At first I threw my weight upon my heels, as one does naturally in a boot, and was a good deal bruised, but after a few hours I learned the natural walk of man, and could follow my guide in any portion of the island.
John Millington Synge
Businesses always have competitors nipping at their heels. Historically, cities have not viewed themselves as subject to that same type of competition. But that’s wrong.
Pete Buttigieg
Sometimes, when I’m alone, I put on six inch heels and wear nothing else and dance around in front of the mirror and do my little stripper dance.
Tori Spelling
I used to love to play dress-up, where you get your mother’s or your grandmother’s dresses and high heels.
Suzanne Farrell
Some tell me I’ll break my ankle on my high heels – but I live in them. I’m known for doing speed dashes and leaps and bounds in heels. No problem.
Kylie Bax
Summer treads on heels of spring.
Alexander McQueen will always be top of my list and I am really into Gianmarco Lorenzi heels.
Sarah Harding
I always wear my signature 5- to 5-and-a-half-inch heels.
Harris Faulkner
I can’t express how much admiration I have for women in general, who walk around in high heels, but, drag queens, oh my god.
Alexander Skarsgard
High heels can literally raise your
status because you’re taller when you wear them.
Helen Fisher
I’m like a dude. Jordans are my favorite. I wear them all the time for shows. I can get girly-girly when I want to, but I can’t perform in heels. I would bust my face open on stage, and we don’t want that.
Rita Ora
I just wanted to experience what it felt like on the other side of the fence. As we all know, the heels have the most fun out there in the ring.
Ricky Steamboat
I’m either in heels or barefoot.
Christina Hendricks
Every time I put on high heels, I think: ‘Well, I’ll fall over today.’ Almost always, I don’t. Almost. But all high-heel-wearing women live in constant peril.
Kate Reardon
One time, I was posing on a car for a calendar shoot. I was doused with oil and literally slid off the car, bikini, heels and all!
Candace Kita
I want to be like one of those little fainting goats that get scared and then just fall over. I want to go and go and then drop dead in the middle of something I’m loving to do. And if that doesn’t happen, if I wind up sitting in a wheelchair, at least I’ll have my high heels on.
Dolly Parton
It’s so strange how people can be judgmental when they see a pregnant woman dressed in high heels and tight dresses. Being pregnant shouldn’t make you feel less of a woman, but more of a woman!
Julia Restoin Roitfeld
A great industrial nation may conquer the world in the span of a single life, but its Achilles’ heel is time. Its children, what of them?
Charles Lindbergh
Meeting Justin Bieber was interesting. We were backstage at The Voice, and he was there premiering his “Boyfriend” music video. I was in six-inch heels, so I was towering over him like a giant.
Erin Willett
I used to go to school in heels every day. I thought I was a little grown woman.
Hennessy Carolina
Now I can wear high heels again.
Nicole Kidman
Keep your heels, head & standards high!
Coco Chanel
When you fall head over heels for someone, you’re not falling in love with who they are as a person; you’re falling in love with your idea of love.
Maria Bello
I’m not the type who parties regularly. I’m happy sitting at home, cooling my heels.
Naga Chaitanya
Through the deliverance of India, I seek to deliver the so-called weaker races of the earth from the crushing heels of Western exploitation in which England is the greatest partner.
Mahatma Gandhi
Drag your thoughts away from your troubles… by the ears, by the heels, or any other way you can manage it.
Mark Twain
I will bring in style, clothes, high heels, laugh and positivity.
Sana Khan
Time heals all and heels hurt to walk in, but they go with the clutch that you carry your lip gloss in.
The hoopla with all the award season is kind of mind-boggling. It kind of puts you on your heels.
Jeff Bridges
The true man breathes with his heels.
Our dependence on foreign energy sources is our Achilles heel, not just in the realm of diplomacy, but in terms of our future as the world’s economic leader.
Judy Biggert
Shoes transform your body language and attitude. They lift you physically and emotionally.
Christian Louboutin
I’d go to lesbian parties. I felt like I wasn’t hard enough to be butch, but I wasn’t wearing heels and a skirt – I wasn’t femme – so I felt like I was sort of invisible.
Dee Rees
Walking in high heels should be made an Olympic sport.
Mimi Pond
I have a lot of looks but right now I’m really into grunge. Messy hair, black heels. I get Michelle Pfeiffer with it.
Chloe Grace Moretz
It’s so irritating, because male rappers don’t have to have a look. A guy can look like a bum on the street, but as a male, people will accept him because he’s a rapper. But females, they expect you to have a big booty. They expect you to walk in six-inch heels.
