What is it with celebs and their ankle boots these days?

Don’t get me wrong, I think their fab. But really, for the red carpet?

Especially when wore with a short dress, these boots do a girl’s legs no favour (take note, Leona and Lo).

Ankle boots make the legs appear shorter than they actually are so opt for something more delicate for optimum height.

Nobody wants to appear to have cankles.

I know that Alexa is adored for her tom-boy style, but I’d love to see her in something more feminine on the red carpet.

I love the rock chick look but there’s a time and a place.

A great pair of ankle boots should be worn with jeans or leggings not a gorgeous dress.

Bring back some glamour and sophistication to the red carpet and leave those ankle boots at home ladies!

We did our best to find some ankle boots for every budget. See what you think.
