The Cruise 2013 show which Chanel staged in the gardens of the Chateau de Versailles last month looked like the ultimate fashion fairytale. With elegant gazebos for guests and fountains splashing water as the models strutted past on the crunchy gravel in near-like couture creations, what was not to love?
Erm… the shoes, apparently.
Model Meghan Collison, pictured below has revealed that the £525, plastic-and-leather heels she modelled “destroyed” the back of her feet. “I was bleeding afterward” she told WWD .
The Canadian clotheshorse is no newbie to the catwalk scene, either. She might only be 22, but is described as a ‘seasoned vet’ and has walked for the likes of Miu Miu, Yves Saint Laurent and Lanvin since starting out five years ago.
She continued: “Hard plastic with no socks on? Not fun! Especially because we had rehearsal three times. I walked around for the next week with the backs of my moccasins folded down to let them heal!”
“At least the shoes looked amazing,” she concluded in good nature.
Still tempted? The styles will be available from Chanel stores in November.
