what the hell...

Yes, those are Crocs on Raquel Zimmerman's supermodel feet that are featured in September's French Vogue. CROCS. Those orthopedic rubber things that are sold at grocery stores that are the rage among the pre-school set and middle aged men with a penchant to pair them with wool socks. Carine, what thou have wrought upon us?

carine stepping into wtf-footwear territory reminds me of the way my crazy uncle likes to tear apart anything with parts and put it back together 'just to see what happens'...
wonder if the day will come when she actually wears crocs...

Nice and Shiny said...

LOL! Obviously the only pair of shoes in their stock suitable for walking in a sewer!
Maybe theres a deeper meaning to this picture, like to walk in crap means to walk in crocs....
hmmm

man this is tragic, i don't pay $15 for this divine fashion institution to see crocs make their way into the styling of their glossy pages... yuck... when did they ever become cool, i don't care if they feel good on your feet, vanity is pain and I'll stick to my nine inch heels any day... I even had to add this to my blog it was such a good pick up... http://debrisblanclaboritorium.blogspot.com/

i will never forget the look on my boyfriend's face when his best friend started telling us about his new comfortable shoes and then lifted his foot from under the bar stool to show us his... crocs!

Only Carine can work the ironic editorial. Hell we've seen Lily D wielding a plastic baby and models wearing steaks in Vogue before, and I think the crocs fall into the 'witty' props category again in this case.
