Scary Beautiful // 2 Heeled Highs

South African artist Leanie van der Vyver dares to flip the beauty industry backwards with creation "Scary Beautiful."  Distorted as the foot's entrance into this sculpturally wonderful faux pas is the model's walk as she struts carefully, hobbling forwards with a sub-human gate. Vyer and Dutch Shoe designer RenĂ© van den Berg collaborated in a creation that aims to challenge beauty in the fashion industry by digging deep into the dark reservoirs of movement and memory association.

Leigh Bowery would be proud.
