This week's ugly shoe isn't a shoe in the strictest sense, but we couldn't help wondering what possessed Nicola Stapleton to rock up to the premiere of Michael Jackson: Life of an Idol in London's Leicester Square last night in spats.

For those not clued-up on late 19th and early 20th century menswear, spats are a covering for shoes that sit around the heel and above the top of the shoe. We've seen the look done well, but unfortunately this cream and patent look just isn't doing it for us today.

The pop legend, himself a lover of spats, would have been very disappointed to see such a sensible-looking colour combination in Nicola's legwear. If she'd camped it up and gone for silver glitter with black accents however, then we'd have reason to applaud!
