Tilda Swinton Was Actually The First To Wear The YSL Caged Heels


There has been much discussion today about the YSL caged heels, and who actually wore them first.

David has kindly pointed out that it was in fact Tilda Swinton and not Becki Newton, as I had stated earlier nor, Ciara, as kindly pointed out by Profashionelle.

Tilda wore the silver caged heels with a dove grey YSL Spring 2009 pant suit, during the Berlin Film Festival last month, when she attended the premiere of The Dust Of Time.

Regular readers will remember that I kinda disowned Tilda during that time, as she was sporting some frock horrors, and as a result I missed this look. And it’s not at all bad, in fact this is one of her best looks this year, so thanks to David who made me go back and search for this.



If you are lusting after these heels as much as myself and Nik, you can purchase them at Matches Fashion, who have the YSL Booties for £905. Whereas Luisa via Roma have the YSL cage boots (€1,100), the YSL cage booties (€890) and the YSL cage sandals (€650).

    these heels were my favorite from the YSL runway – I now have a new found admiration for Tilda. :) I love those heels on her.

    @JustJewels:

    I just made a quick search and found what you meant (pictures here). But OMG she totally ruined them with her look.

    And no, Dawn didn’t wear it before Tilda. Seems like David was right and Tilda was the first one :)

    she looks soooo good wearing those heels. it’s like they were made for her. and that suit looks great against her skin and on her frame.
