Melissa McCarthy's SNL Heels: A Cautionary Tale
It's really hard to pick footwear for important events based on practicality and not looks. Especially since, after a two-minute lap around a carpeted shoe department, it's easy to delude oneself into believing that those same six-inchers that magically make our legs look longer, hair shinier and smile brighter aren't that painful. We tell ourselves that it's not like we'd be walking—much—and really, there would be no need for a spare set of flats, especially since that would mean carrying a larger, much less cute clutch. Then, five minutes into said important event, we hobble to a linen-draped table, discreetly kick off our stilettos and stay there all night long.
Poor Melissa McCarthy, who hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend in a pair of teetering red sparkly pumps that could even cause Lady Gaga to trip and fall, did not have the option to spend all evening seated. As the show's name suggests, her appearance was indeed live, and the cameras caught every hilarious repercussion of her ill-fated shoe choice. Watch her stumble, crawl and eventually fall in the video below.
