This is the $36 hack Margot Robbie swears by to stop her feet hurting while wearing heels
"It’s normally pretty hectic with flying in and out so I don’t really have a routine set up, per say," Oscar-nominated actress, Margot Robbie, told Glamour about her pre-red carpet ritual.
"Whenever I’m getting ready for a big event or an award show, my girlfriends come over and we drink champagne. That way it’s kind of more fun. In fact, sometimes it’s more fun getting ready than it is going to a big event."
The 27-year-old has always been loved for her down-to-earth nature, as well as her formidable talents on-screen. Her girly champagne ritual before big events was confirmed by Margot's stylist and friend, Kate Young, who said the highlight of Sunday's Oscars event was "The glass of champagne with everyone before you walk out the door!".
Was it because she was nervous about her nomination for Best Actress for her performance in I, Tonya? Or because of the masses of A-list celebrities that would be swarming around her? Well, we can say for certain that it wasn't because she was worried about lasting a whole evening in her stilettos.
Margot Robbie has a secret to stopping her feet from hurting while wearing heels, and it's surprisingly simple (and affordable!) The hack is all thanks to her stylist, Kate, who introduced her to one magical product.
The secret? A bottle of Still Standing, which keeps your feet feeling cool and comfortable even after you've been standing in sky-high stilettos for hours. It's supposed to keep your feet feeling like you've only just stepped into your shoes, and amazingly, it retails on Amazon for only $36.
Kate has prepared every look for Margot during her I, Tonya promotional tour – from picking designer gowns, jewellery and everything in between. She uploaded a selfie showing off the Jimmy Choo's Margot wore to the Oscars, as well as a bunch of secret weapons used to help the actress with her look. Among them are stain remover wipes, gel heel liners, a pair of beige seamless "Commando" underwear and... the bottle of Still Standing.
It works by spraying the top, sides and bottoms of your feet, waiting for the formula to dry for a few minutes, and then slipping into your shoes to hit the red carpet (or, you know, the Uber to meet your friends). It's a natural formula spray made with cooling menthol and organic herbal ingredients, such as Arnica, Aloe and Ilex.
"These three herbal remedies are time-tested natural anti-inflammatories and pain relievers," the Still Standing website states. "Along with other ingredients including Vitamin E and Tea Tree Oil, they come together in a greaseless, colorless, stain-free spray that keeps feet feeling great."
While Margot didn't win an Oscar this time around, she did win with her heels hack. It meant she didn't have to take a break and carry her shoes during the evening, like Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolf.
It looks like they'd be grateful if Margot shared her secret with them...
