Melania Trump is the kind of woman who travels to a flood-ravaged state in a pair of black snakeskin stilettos. Heels this high are not practical. But Trump is not the kind of woman who has to be practical. Heels this high are not comfortable. Comfort is not the point. Neither hers nor yours.
"There Was No Pretense About Melania Trump's Heels. But Sometimes, a Little Pretense Helps." is from the August 29, 2017 Arts and Entertainment section of The Washington Post. It was written by Robin Givhan and narrated by Sam Scholl.
