Scarlett Johansson is on a mission to make sneakers happen in Paris, and we couldn't be happier.
As the cover star of Glamour magazine's May 2014 issue, Johansson talked about life after her divorce from Ryan Reynolds, that infamous nickname and her approach to getting older (although 30 is hardly old in our book).
Johansson also gave some insight on the culture of her current home, Paris. On her style sense in France, she remarks on how the fashion crowd really does inspire what she wears on a daily basis:
The nice thing about being in Paris is that you know everybody's looking at what you're wearing: You have an audience, you know? New York is about street style that's functional. A Paris look is not functional! It doesn’t matter if your shoes are comfortable. Here [in New York] you can still wear your Nikes. In Paris you suck it up. You hobble around. Although my girlfriends in Paris and I decided we're adopting the trend of athletic streetwear 'cause we got sick of it. I was like, 'I am sick of not feeling my big toe after two hours of dancing!'
While we've always had this fantasy of looking lavish in Paris with nothing stopping us, we admire Johansson's honesty in making the statement that wearing heels everyday can sometimes be an unrealistic decision. And, we're with you girl, as we love our Nike and Converse sneakers too much to swap them out for pumps.
