Walking in heels is a skill that requires dedicated practice and JK Rowling wanted to make sure she didn't make a fashion faux pas by going head over heels at the Harry Potter world premiere last night. Red carpet pros, Megan Fox and Heidi Klum both have a pair of the same Louboutins and it looks like JK was after a little bit of their red carpet glamour.
In preparation for the prem, the 43 year old author took her £800 gold Differa Christian Louboutin heels for a test run on Monday night to Scott's in Mayfair. Though she seemed less than entirely sure footed, hubby Neil Murray was on hand to help her keep her balance.
And it was worth the extra time she put in learning to walk in them; as JK Rowling stepped onto last night's red carpet in Leicester Square, she looked utterly glamorous in an Alberta Ferretti gown and her glimmering heels. And, as if by magic, the rain stopped falling the moment she exited her limo.
