Obsession of the Day: Alejandro Ingelmo “Sophia” Platform Pumps

You know how most women on the red carpet look like they’re about nine feet tall with impossibly long legs? Well, next time you’re envying their Amazonian posture, take a look at what’s going on South of their ankles: they’re probably wearing nude platform pumps. It’s a stylist’s trick: the flesh-colored shoe elongates the appearance of the leg and the platform adds height. It’s genius, really.

The hunt for the perfect nude platform is now over: these stunning Alejandro Ingelmo pumps are sheer perfection. The flattering hue is a near-perfect nude for multiple skintones and the substantial platform will act as a buffer for the ever-battered ball of your foot. The platform is key because, well, it’s hard to make your legs look long if you’re curled up in agony.

Oh, and did I mention there’s something slightly seductive about a nude heel that causes men to stare, like you’re revealing something you shouldn’t be?  Yep. Don’t be surprised if he asks you to keep these shoes on.

Alejandro Ingelmo “Sophia” Platform Pumps ($450), available at Bloomingdale’s.
