Yes, we have an obsession with shoes, no doubt. And we love wearing high heels, no matter how painful they are. But some women are taking the art of wearing the stiletto even further, opting to get surgery on their feet just to fit in their favorite shoes.

According to the Daily Mail,  more women are choosing to get their pinky toes removed because it’s that much easier to fit into their heels. Yikes. "Unless you’ve been there, and you can’t find shoes, and you’re in pain, don’t judge,” patient Susan Deming, who recently underwent a toe-shortening procedure, told Fox News, says the Daily Mail.

Her procedure included getting a centimeter of her second toe cut off (she says she had abnormally long toes and one foot larger than the other, causing her pain when she wore heels). Now, she can wear her shoes without problems. “I’ve never felt this good about something I’ve done. If it’s vain, it’s vain,” she said.

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
