Making red carpet appearances is all part of the job for celebrities.
They must spend hours in the run up to these events thinking about their outfits and accessories and ensuring they will stand out from the celebrity crowd and have a flattering review of their look in the media the following day.
On the day of the event itself the celebs must spend hours making sure they look red-carpet ready. From getting their hair done to having their makeup applied it’s hours of effort for their five minutes of fame. So, from organising their dress, to their matching accessories, to their makeup and hair – it really is a full time job preparing for such events.
After spending endless hours watching the Kardashians in all their glory on their hit reality TV show ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’, we have come to realise that these glam, red carpet events truly are the biggest stresses celebrities face.
Not that they should stress though, Kim K always looks amazing on the red carpet.
It is not surprising then that celebrities have their own glam squad, that take care of all their red carpet looks and make them camera ready – this is serious business. These teams travel everywhere with the celebs to make sure they are looking glam at all times.
Dressing in their best and standing beside other great and important people is just one of the ways celebrities stay in the press and how they stay relevant.
If one were to stop making public appearances, they’re at risk of falling out of the public eye.
Take the Met Gala for instance, how many weeks were people talking about Beyonce after that event? I mean, she looked incredible, and even fellow celebrities commented on how good she looked!
Whereas one bad outfit can have the same effect and put you in the tabloids for weeks – something our girl Riri is used to due to her daring outfits. And this Met Gala look was nothing surprising…
Yes – Rihanna is hiding amongst those flowers! This look catapulted Rihanna into the spotlight, for the mixed opinions on this risky look. Nevertheless, as previously mentioned, it definitely made sure she was in the public eye.
And who can forget this Lady Gaga red carpet look?
She is definitely not one to shy away from crazy outfits, but this look definitely made sure she was in the spotlight for a good week atleast. Although the dress is classy, and very normal (especially for Lady Gaga) – she had to go and wear a pair of red marigolds! Some may say this made her look, and others may say it ruined it. However, one thing we can all agree with…she definitely got people talking and left an impression on people.
That’s why red carpet events are a big deal for celebrities.
But there are a few tips that ALL celebrities follow to ensure they both look and feel their best when they are in front of the camera…and it is all related to their shoes!
That’s right, there is detail in every single aspect of a celebrity’s red carpet outfit and their shoes are no exception.
However, some reporters have recently noticed that some female celebrities are wearing shoes that are a size or two too big for their feet.
Is this a new fashion trend? Apparently not. It just appears that these fashion conscious celebs are onto a secret trick that most of us don’t know about.
Many of the Hollywood stars who flaunt their outfits on the red carpet generally wear high heels. But because of the nature of the events the celebrities are wearing the heels for too long, and things can get a tad uncomfortable.
By wearing shoes that are a bit too big for their feet, they are allowing their feet to breathe. It also prevents the feet from swelling and forming blisters.
If these celebs wore shoes that were their shoe size, by the end of the night, their feet would be covered in blisters and swollen.
And how often have you seen a celebrity with cut feet due to their high heels? This is something we have actually never thought about – but it is true. Whereas we spend one hour in heels and are feet are bleeding and full of blisters!
So to avoid any foot discomfort, blister, or any sort of foot related pain, celebrities often choose to wear shoes that are at least a size too big.
Another benefit is that large shoes, pumps or sandals won’t pinch, squeeze or rub the feet in the vulnerable areas of the foot (like the balls of our feet, or in between our toes).
Although most people would put a bandage on these vulnerable areas to prevent blisters, celebrities aren’t always allowed this as an option since cameras are constantly pointed at them, ready to capture and wardrobe malfunctions.
Can you imagine seeing a photo of an A list celebrity wearing blister bandages!?
Now you may wonder, how do they keep the shoes on if they’re a size too big?
We for one can’t even keep shoes on that fit us properly, never mind a pair of shoes that are too big. And they manage to make it look so easy?!
Well, that’s a great question!
They manage to keep them on because their designers usually place silicone pads inside the pumps.
This method ensures that the shoe fits snugly and rather comfortably on the foot all the while blood flow is not restricted and the feet won’t be pinched…
Double-sided tape is also used in order to keep the shoe on all night long. This is similar to body tape which us ladies use all too frequently to keep our clothing tight to our chest to avoid that dreaded nip slip. Apparently this works on shoes too? This is definitely something we are going to try out.
But a simple way to avoid any weird looks could just be to wear a longer dress that can hide the shoe or to simply wear pants where the hem of the pants cover the shoes.
But should celebrities be limited to covering their feet at every red carpet event? Especially when the vast majority spend a considerable amount of time working out to get that perfect body to show off at such events.
However, this trend in wearing oversized shoes has been steadily growing so celebrities don’t even need to go about hiding their oversized shoes.
So there you have it, hot Hollywood tips fresh off the press! Now you can grace your next formal event without the awful blisters, cramps, and foot pain! You’re welcome!
