Giuseppe Zanotti launched their Spring/Summer 2019 collection with an ode to blooming Spring flowers and stilettos. In a series of monochromatic garments against a white backdrop, 21-year-old supermodel, Grace Elizabeth, proved that sky-high pencil heels can be a girl’s best friends instead of reinforcing the old adage - beauty is pain.

A short clip released by Zannotti shows the model sporting a relaxed expression of ease, otherwise unexpressive, as she pivots in an oversized black blazer and sashayed on black ankle-strap sandals with a handcrafted peony jutting out of the back. Tucking her hair behind her ears, she admires them, before the next scene showcased the sandal with a thick rhinestone ankle strap and bow-like leopard print strap across the toes. In a black tank, her hands were in the pockets of her high-waist black chinos. Clearly, wearing the heels doesn't require arms aloft in a high-wire balancing act. And yet Grace sat only while wearing flats, black T-strap sandals with a large square rhinestone in the center. There is a blush pink satin stiletto with bow in the back identical swung over one of Grace’s arms like a new, modern take on ballet slippers. The final scene is of a black stiletto, rhinestones across the toes and a small charm hanging on the ankle strap, that paired with the purely sensible ensemble of white t-shirt and black trousers.
