THIGH HIGH BOOT WEEK (Movie Reviews)
Style Expert, Katarina Szish (born March 6, 1972) appeared on CBS' The Early Show on July 28, 2009 to promote Thigh-High Boots!
The beginning of the clip shows Julia Roberts unzipping her shinny black patent leather boots in "Pretty Woman". Katrina is wearing the best boots out of all the models. The above picture even shows the dirt on the bottom of her boots, so she really does wear them.
2009 was the breakout year for thigh-high boots. As mentioned in yesterday's post, thigh -high boots were rebranded and marketed as Over-the-Knee boots. I think that was a brilliant move by the fashion industry.The term thigh-high boot means SEX. On the other-hand, Over-the-Knee sounds understated, especially considering what they really are...thigh-high boots! But the name change was necessary. They would not have become popular if they had been called thigh-high boots.
In 2009, I was selling shoes and remember a customer coming in looking for the new hot fashion of "over-the-knee boots. My manager, who was pretty savvy when it comes to style did not see the over-the-knee boot trend coming and thought the girl was a hooker or something. The name took though. You will not hear many girls calling their over-the-knee boots, thigh-highs. Either way, a rose by any other name, doth smell like leather!
Fashion brought us knee-high boots in the 50's thanks to BF Goodrich's zipper improvment. Pretty Woman introduced mainstream society to thigh-high boots, Anne Hathaway and The Devil Wears Prada dusted them off and Kataria Szish showed us they can be worn by everyday goddesses, even to the office.
