Fox & Friends First: Ainsley’s “Soleful” Cry

April 14, 2012

Wherefore art thou, Juliet? Poor Ainsley: only one pair of shoes? Fox & Friends First co-host Ainsley Earhardt bedecked herself beautifully this week in five different dresses of cheery color: After all, it was the traditional beginning of spring.* However, she did make one fashion faux pas: she appeared to wear the very same pair of shoes (Crayola peach-colored closed-toe high heels) all week.**

To make matters worse, the author can not recollect Ainsley ever having worn another pair of shoes on F&FF since it’s inception. In fact, Ainsley appeared to be wearing the very same stilettos on the debut of F&FF–AND the day before in an F&FF promo (on the regular weekday Fox & Friends). Ainsley’s “soleful” cry for help?

If so, Ainsley has, at least, one F&FF co-host who is more than qualified to give her guidance, i.e., Juliet Huddy, who would probably prefer to die than to be caught in the same pair of shoes even two days in a row. Even though Juliet may not want to put Ainsley in Manolo Blahniks or Christian Louboutins quite yet, she could introduce her to a Huddy foot fun fave, the Naughty Monkey. Anything new!

Time to go shoe shopping, Ainsley. And, take Juliet with you. After all, what are “Friends” for?

Blahnik Rules: Briggs Clueless

November 29, 2008

Dave Briggs, like his predecessor Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Greg Kelly, is an oblivious chap when it comes to women’s footwear and its affect on the male libido. Today after a segment on free flip-flops from British bobbies for besotted beauties, Dave daftly asked [co-anchor Alisyn Camerota], “Why don’t you all just wear more comfortable shoes? We don’t really care that much if you wear the high heels?” To which Aly answered, “No, that’s not an option.”

Whether Dave knows it or not, high heels enhance the distaff aesthetic by creating the perception of a longer leg and a sleeker silhouette. Fashion designers and boudoir photogs have long known this secret. Strangely, the common man responds reflexively to this truth without a conscious comprehension thereof.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the sale of women’s footwear with heels of 3 inches and higher has increased from approximately 1/5 to 1/4 of women’s fashion footwear sold at retail stores in the last two years. Designers have taken notice. Hollywood fave Manolo Blahnik added a hot 6-inch heel this year to his line after two decades of adhering to a 5-inch limit. Parisian shoe auteur extraordinaire Christian Louboutin is offering an 8-inch version of his sexy red-soled stillettos next year.
