High heels and no knickers – Controversy at the Cannes Film Festival

Posted on 22 May 2015


There is an old Scottish saying

“Fur coat and nae knickers’’

Roughly translated, it means someone pretending to be a bit more upmarket than they really are.

Well, at the Cannes Film Festival this week there is a lot of that going on…but guess what?

If you weren’t wearing high heels then you wouldn’t get on the red carpet.

Yes, you did read that right. Ladies who were destined for the red carpet were turned away because they had flat shoes on.

No, I’m not making this up it was all over the news.

(I assume men wearing white soaks were turned away too??)

It’s hard to believe in the year 2015 that we refuse entry to ladies on this basis.

It’s crazy if you ask me, surely it’s the work on screen that counts?

Yes, I know that may be old fashioned these days but there you go.

That’s all I got for you today. Well, it is Saturday and I’m off to LA in a moment.

(More on that next week)

In the meantime, why don’t you book your ticket for the live seminar?
