London, July 10 : If you thought that celebrities are comfortable wearing high heels than here's something that you should know -Gwyneth Paltrow and Liz Hurley apparently struggled to get about in skyscraper heels at a PR event to launch a perfume.
Paltrow donned gladiator-style sky-scraping heels that laced up to the ankle while Hurley opted for a more conservative approach with a pair of classic black peep-toe stilettos, reports the Mirror.
The 35-year-old mum-of-two, who donned Giuseppe Zanottis, had to hold on to the fixtures to steady herself as she tottered to the centre.
Then, Hurley looked just as uncertain as she followed in her Fendi peeptoe stilettos at the Estee Lauder-sponsored do.
When the two finally made it on to the stage, at Bloomindale's store in New York, they looked as if they were sharing tips on how on earth they were going to get down again in safety.
