Julianne Moore Hilariously Explains Her 'Toemageddon' Moment at Cannes

We gasped out an empathetic "Ouch!" when we saw pictures of Julianne Moore on the Cannes red carpet with her pinky toes looking mangled in a too-narrow pair of platform stilettos. But it apparently wasn't as bad as it looked. Moore went on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to talk about the now-infamous shoe shots seen 'round-the-world, which she hilariously dubbed "Toemageddon."

We gasped out an empathetic "Ouch!" when we saw pictures of Julianne Moore on the Cannes red carpet with her pinky toes looking mangled in a too-narrow pair of platform stilettos. But it apparently wasn't as bad as it looked.

Moore went on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to talk about the now-infamous shoe shots seen 'round-the-world, which she hilariously dubbed "Toemageddon."

"There's so much pressure to look good, to look perfect," Moore told Fallon. "I thought I had everything under control. But I didn't have it. It was a mess."

Moore went on to say that she and her stylist Leslie Fremar noticed that the shoe platform was rather narrow and there was a "possibility of my toes falling off." But they figured it would be fine.

"What I didn't prepare myself for was the pivoting," Moore said. "I thought it all went fine, and I was comfortable in my shoes and I went and saw the movie."

She claims she didn't feel a thing, which we find really hard to believe. She must be some kind of shoe ninja--she can probably walk on hot coals. A true red carpet pro.
