Want: Balenciaga Spandex Thigh Boots

873815_ou_xlIf we can gather anything from this week’s Met Gala, it’s the resurgence of the party boot. Priyanka and Solange both rocked low-cut boots on the red carpet, but the ultimate winners of the evening when it comes to shoes were model Lily Aldridge and our beloved Salma Hayek. Both showed up in the show-stopping 80s-revival spandex thigh boot from last season’s Balenciaga, just one of the many meta-kitsch-chic tropes implemented by head designer Demna Gvasalia since his appointment at the French fashion house last year. In bright neon colors ranging from violet to crimson red, the boots brings any dress, pant, or skirt to new dimensions – adding a surreal twist to contemporary luxury in their blatant celebration of the lycra hey-days of the 80s we thought were best forgotten. If Salma can rock a Spandex look, so can we – so see you on the dancefloor.
