Michelle Williams looked nice on the red carpet at the SAG Awards on Sunday night. And I chose the word “nice” for a reason: it was her shoes. They ruined it. That red lacy Valentino gown? Stunning! Her makeup and pixie cut? Adorable. But then, beneath her ankles, sit what I can only call “suburban prom shoes.” I know they’re suburban prom shoes because I grew up in the suburbs and went to TWO proms, and I saw those shoes at both of them. And Women’s Wear Daily called them one of five of the hottest pairs of shoes on the red carpet?! Just because someone fancy designed them (in this case, Roger Vivier) doesn’t mean they can’t be ugly.
Ugly shoes aside, it’s nice to hear that Williams might be considering a break from acting so that she can focus on her 6-year-old daughter Matilda. On the red carpet, Williams told E! “I just want to go back to being a mom for a while.” Word is that she has no film projects scheduled for the immediate future.
Perhaps she’ll keep aside some time in her schedule to reconsider her footwear.
