Bruno Frisoni, creative director at Roger Vivier, told Vogue U.K. that he thinks Kate Middleton’s wedding shoes should be a pair of flats.

"If you wear flats you look more fragile," he said. "When you see a 16- or 17-year-old in high heels, they look as if they are floating. Sexiness is about what you are and the way you are than being super tall. There are many high heels that aren't sexy at all. I think high heels do give women confidence, though, and that's what men love about them. If you wear the right shoe, you'll just walk into a room smiling."

Last year Frisoni designed a pair of rhinestone-encrusted shoes for Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden’s wedding to Daniel Westling. And Queen Elizabeth II wore a pair of Roger Vivier shoes to her coronation in 1952.

As for the royal wedding, "It'll be one of those century moments—she has to be exceptional," he told the magazine of Middleton. "People want the dream. Her preoccupation must be to look incredibly surprising and immaterialist. The shoes will probably disappear under the dress and all you'll be able to see is the point of the toe—this, therefore, has to look exquisite."
