Now, here’s a great example of damage control. Instead of doing the typical Hollywood reaction of acting like she’s above it all, Julianne Moore addressed her Cannes shoe malfunction last night on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. She even had a witty name for it: “toemageddon.”
Gotta love a beautiful woman who can laugh at herself.
Not that we want you to relive the horror, but let’s refresh your memory first with these pictures of Julianne Moore looking beautiful while working the red carpet at Cannes.

Everything was going great until you got to her toes that looked as if they were being threatened to be cut off.

Julianne Moore candidly explained to Jimmy Fallon how her feet got that way. She said that it didn’t hurt and that she didn’t feel a single thing.
Calling the incident “toe-gate” and “toe-maggedon,” she revealed, “I didn’t feel it, I didn’t feel a thing!” while gesticulating wildly.

“I did what any reasonable person would do. I needed to prevent this from happening again, so I cut my toes off,” she added jokingly and handed Jimmy Fallon a tiny tin box containing her (plastic) pink toes.
Aside from proving that Julianne Moore is a gorgeous actress with a great sense of humor, this post is also for finally ID-ing her controversial silver platform sandals.
It was the narrow toe box on these Charlotte Olympia “Tokyo” sandals that caused Julianne Moore’s shoe disaster:

You know we love Charlotte Olympia here on Your Next Shoes, but we really can’t fault Julianne Moore for what happened at Cannes. You can use shoe inserts and other simple tricks to keep your feet from slipping in high heels.
