Pick the barbie doll..... Oh wait..... they're all a real person... *Shivers down spine*
Actually I do think it's true, my feet are pretty arched as well :/
Walking around too much on flat shoes also kills my feet, if they have a little bit of heel they're more confortable as well.
What do you want, it was the '40s.

Actually, high heels have been used since Hellenic and even ancient Egypt times... by both men and women.
Men always try to look taller while women like to look slim and to make their legs look longer... etc... besides women don't have that perfect symmetrical body as men do.
But seriously, that's the main reason the academies used to use only male models - their bodies are perfect for studying symmetry, anatomy and muscle construction. (though I'm sure some men would disagree with that. )

Russian Academy of Arts thread - all about it
There was a sign on the Academy building, “Free Arts”. “What’s that?”, we asked our professor. – “That’s to be able to create anything, but to create what you want to.”
And in many parts of the world they weren't used at all until the Twentieth Century.
Not that it matters - THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF FASHION has not been happening long enough to make a dent in evolution.
Not in all cultures. Not in all times. Not by a long shot. At various times and various places, the following have been considered attractive for women:Men always try to look taller while women like to look slim and to make their legs look longer... etc...
Plumpness in general
Being short and cute
Being big and fat
Eh what.....? HUH? What, women are lopsided??besides women don't have that perfect symmetrical body as men do.
That makes no sense at all... Last I checked, women have the same bilateral symmetry as every other type of human...
I thought the main reason was because no respectable woman would pose naked in front of a roomful of men in the Nineteenth century...But seriously, that's the main reason the academies used to use only male models - their bodies are perfect for studying symmetry, anatomy and muscle construction.
High heels make the figure "taller", slimmer, gracefuller in the case of money. The extra heels might have been for part of the gestures too.
Although my first thought is simply, "the floor is dirty" >_>""
