Lily Allen might be pregnant, but it seems that the singer isn’t ready to hang up her heels just yet if this picture is anything to go by!
The glam singer and mum-to-be, 25, opted for a pair of towering heels during her recent trip to Paris Fashion Week. She even wore them whilst on a shopping spree at the fashionable APC store.
Accessorising her platforms with an oversized handbag, Lily’s choice of footwear has raised concerns from The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.
“Weight gain and hormonal changes in pregnancy have a huge impact on the body. Muscles and ligaments soften and stretch because of an increase in the ovarian hormone, relaxin, which makes your feet more prone to ankle and ligament strains on a daily basis,” warns Lorraine Jones from The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.
“‘High heels alter your posture, shorten your calf muscles and place increased pressure on your back and knees.”
However, it seems that Lily Allen isn’t alone in her desire to wear high heel shoes whilst pregnant. Danielle Lloyd was spotted donning sky scraping heels during her third trimester and according to a recent survey, the majority of pregnant women aren’t wearing ‘sensible’ footwear.
