How to style heels
1. The bigger the heel, the more stable the shoe.
2. Boots often have wide heels that will make you appear effortlessly leaner and taller.
3. When wearing heels, put your heel down first, followed by your toe. This will make your walk look more natural.
4. The best way to wear heels casually is by finding that right pair of pumps you can walk in as if you had sneakers on.
5. If you want to wear heels casually, the clothing should be kept super simple. Another way to keep it simple is by going monochromatic and letting the heels stand out. It helps the vibe stay super easygoing and informal.
6. Bock heels are the easiest to walk in. They help to distribute the weight and this makes them easier to walk in than slimmer heels.
7. Heels are the simplest and sexiest way to add height to your look. They can make your legs appear longer, and can actually make large calves look slimmer.
8. However, wearing the wrong types of heels can make your calves appear large and stumpy.
9. Match your color of heels with your skin tone to create the appearance of a long slender line.
10. Heels with straps have extra ties and funky buckles which adds weight to your legs. This is the case with ankle straps because of the close proximity to the calves. For the most slender-looking legs possible, stick with slip-on heels.
- Recently, a three-year-old Alan Moore interview surfaced online.
- In the interview, the Watchmen writer criticizes contemporary superhero culture.
- He also says the characters are “still very much white supremacist dreams.”
Yesterday, English comic writer Alan Moore (V for Vendetta, Watchmen, Batman: The Killing Joke) turned 66. The internet celebrated the writers b-day by unearthing a transcript of an interview Moore gave three years ago, which featured discussions on everything from magic and LSD to comic influences and, a topic of particular vitriol, popular obsession with superheroes. Moores verdict: our obsession is embarrassing.
Moore probably doesn’t need to explain his aversion to superhero worship. His Watchmen graphic novel, a cultural and literary touchstone , does its sardonic and ironic best to cape-drag superheroes through the mud: it dresses them in campy colors; it strips them of powers, morals, and even sexual potency; and it renders all their best laid plans equally impotent, as millions of people die due to the heroes’ failures. Basically, Moores been shitting on superhero culture since the ’80s.
Hes also proven uncooperative in Hollywoods attempt to turn his comics into cinematic hero fests; Moores been known to give creators the cold shoulder when it comes to adapting his work. Hes perpetually unsatisfied with film adaptations and even went so far as to request his name be disconnected with HBOs recent Watchmen iteration.
Watchmen showrunner Damon Lindelof said, half-jokingly, he believed Moore had put a curse on him . (Moore occasionally practices witchcraft.)
But Moores final thoughts on superheros may just give Lindelof a little hope. I would also remark that save for a smattering of non-white characters (and non-white creators) these books and these iconic characters are still very much white supremacist dreams of the master race, he continued. In fact, I think that a good argument can be made for D.W. Griffiths Birth of a Nation as the first American superhero movie, and the point of origin for all those capes and masks.
Lindelof has said before in interviews he intended to use Watchmen to explore white nationalism in America. His equation of masked superheroes and cloaked Klansman fits nicely with Moores analysis, and as much as Moore refuses to accept Lindelofs adaptation, thematically, the two approaches probably arent too different after all.
