Unless you're Beyoncé, most folks wear Top-Siders or just sneakers when boating around. The diva was photographed walking the plank wearing $1,600 Azzedene Alaia high heels that put her 6.5 inches above sea level, on her 32nd birthday on September 4th.

The photo is worth a gander as there's no word whether the heels are seaworthy, but as Marilyn Monroe once said, "Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world." Imelda Marcos must be rolling over in her grave.
