Kristin Davis No Longer Wears Heels After ‘Sex And The City’


‘Sex And The City’ star Kristin Davis has hung up her heels after the hit show came to an end. The actress believes the fashion-forward tv show seemed to broadcast a message to women that it was important for them to wear heels but she doesn’t agree with that sentiment, even though she thinks it was appropriate for the characters and brought a sense of glamour to the show. She comments that she no longer wears heels personally because of the pain involved:

 ”I do feel guilt about the heels. It did seem we were trying to say to women: ‘You should be wearing heels like these.’ But we definitely weren’t. Were they beautiful shoes? Yes. Were they appropriate for the characters? Yes – that’s what women like that wear. But it became a bigger-picture thing, where it seemed women should be wearing them every day. But I’m not wearing them. I wear heels so rarely now. It hurts when I do, you have to get in training for them and it takes a lot of practice.”

Kristin says she was very glad to always have the support of her co-stars throughout the show’s run because there was a huge amount of hype and the process of making the show was often tough. She opened up on what it was like:

”Thank God, we were together, we couldn’t have gotten through it without each other’s support. I’m not complaining, doing the show was wonderful, but when you’re filming on a Manhattan street at three in the morning, surrounded by photographers, walking down cobble-stoned streets wearing six-inch heels, it’s not easy.”
