Lady Gaga is known for wearing some precarious shoes, but will she step up to the plate and don these insane things? At first, they seem to simply be some ridiculously high heels. But upon closer inspection, you’ll notice that they totally warp the wearer’s legs. So are these are, statement pieces or actual fashion that people are supposed to wear?

The shoes, created by artist Leanie van der Vyver, are called “Scary Beautiful.” And while they are technically made to be worn, the accessories were primarily created with a message:
After working in fashion for seven years, and therefore being well aware of the manipulation images in fashion suffer for a perfect result, I still compare myself to them and other current beauty ideals. My frustration with my own inability to overcome these feelings of inadequacy was what brought ‘Scary Beautiful’ into fruition. [The shoes] challenge current beauty ideals by inflicting an unexpected new beauty standard.
But despite the artistic overtones, van der Vyver did still ship a pair over to a film studio where Lady Gaga was shooting a new video. However, she ”could not get confirmation whether [Gaga] actually used them.” [via Jezebel]
