Some people are very, very angry about the shoes that Cara Delevingne wore to the White House. Yes, you read that right. In an age where people are tackling diversity issues and challenging traditional body, gender, and sexuality norms, a good deal of attention has been given to the fact that a young woman wore a comfortable, stylish creeper-sneaker hybrid. Why exactly are they so angry, though? Is it because they weren't able to get their hands on the sold-out Fentys themselves? Was it because they were upset that they weren't invited to attend the famed mansion for Funny or Die's round-table discussion on climate change? Perhaps. Or perhaps it's because some people don't take too kindly to change.
“I am a big believer that you should respect the setting you are in,” Marissa Mitrovich, a former government-affairs executive who runs the fashion and politics blog Politiquette, told
. “And when you are at the White House for a business meeting, I say you do not wear sneakers.”
Others, though, are taking a more positive spin on it and commending Delevingne for wearing them. The Internet—it's a confusing place.
