Slutty Pilgrim is a Monarchist!

Black patent Pilgrim shoe by Roger Vivier, with a platform and 4 ½” heel. Buckle is embroidered with “God Save the Queen” and R.V., $1125.

The Pilgrim shoe was first recontextualized when Catherine Deneuve wore the original Roger Vivier design in her role as a prostitute in Belle du Jour. Today's version has a platform and an almost 5" heel, so the sinfulness is built right into the shoe. Leave it to RV, to once again play with the Pilgrims by invoking allegiance to the very monarchy whose rule they fled.

Perfectly ironic footwear for Thanksgiving, yet practical enough for pole-dancing.
