TSA confiscates woman’s gun-shaped high heels

Stilettos that look like guns are taken by airport security.

With all the hassle of getting through lines and security checkpoints at the airport to begin with, you wouldn’t think anyone would want to delay the process further by doing anything even remotely risky.

But one woman put her wardrobe to the test last week with the TSA. According to the Daily Beast, a woman had her black patent-leather pump shoes taken away from her at LaGuardia airport last week. Why? Because the heels of the shoe were designed to resemble guns. No, the gun shoes weren’t dangerous. But they were indeed a fashion risk gone wrong. So she agreed to take them off and walked through security barefoot. After the incident, the Daily Beast reports that the TSA tweeted a photo of the gun heels with the saying “Also, what not to wear at #LGA checkpoint.”

Good for TSA !!!  They deserve to be confiscated.  She was probably a hillbilly, trailer-trash, NRA-lovin' idiot to begin with...now she's a shoeless hillbilly, trailer-trash, NRA-lovin' idiot.  LMAO

    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.
