Hi, I'm Kristen Smith-Hilton, a global fashion stylist and beauty expert, as well as the President of Novella Style Group. Oftentimes, I have many clients that want to know how they can walk in the fabulous high heels that they see in everyday life. I don't know if we have Carrie Bradshaw to blame from "Sex in the City," or the true artists that design and make the fabulous high heels that we see every day. Either way, walking in a high heel is a true art form and requires every bit of confidence that you have. You're going to come across all types of different situations throughout your day. You will come across cracks in the sidewalk, different materials, stairs. You are going to need to be able to move gracefully through all of it. As you are walking down the street and you suddenly come across a grate, I'm reminded of the childhood rhyme of "Can't Go Around it, Can't Go Over It, Can't Go Under It, Got To Go Through It". Immediately go up to the balls of your toes and walk as quickly and fastly over the grate to safety. Therefore, not damaging the heel and any material around it, causing a scrape in the material can be irreparable to your favorite new heel. Another thing that you want to keep in mind when walking gracefully is that you're using every part of your body, your shoulders, your back, your stomach muscles, your thighs, your knees and of course, your feet. So, keep that in mind when you're walking gracefully. You want to be the type of woman that sweeps into the room, just as Ginger Rogers did, like you are walking on air; and even if it is slightly uncomfortable, you are smiling through it all. When it comes to marble floors, I would highly suggest that you go around the marble floor unless you have an escort. Again, I'm Kristen Smith-Hilton, global stylist and fashion expert on how to walk gracefully in high heels.
