...to love Ines de la Fressange.
Although she sometimes wears heels, she prefers the fuss-free practicality of flat shoes, and is scornful of the way that "some people think that shoes are ladders. No man is going to say, 'I would love you so much more if you were 10cm taller'. Women are suffering, you know. Elegance is about feeling nice, how can you feel nice when you have shoes that are like a prosthesis?"
She's also frustrated by the fact that it's "impossible to find a woman who is more than 30 years old in magazines. It's like being older is hidden, there's no one for women to identify with."
