“We live in a world where women are expected to be compliant and acquiescent, and are rewarded for providing men with beauty and the type of sex they require.”

Can painfully restrictive clothing ever be beneficial aesthetically, culturally, or personally? South African designer Leanie Van Der Vyver made the so-called supersexy high heel awkward and thus questioning the discomfort of the stiletto. Personally I never wear stilettos but I do like a chunky heel once in a while. An artwork like Scary Beautiful rejects the expectations that the heel has. No one would ever wear a heel like that, but it does let you think about what is that line between acceptable and unacceptable if you think of feminine fashion.
