She Doesn't Want To Kick Up Any Fuss

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg doesn't want the fame, but her recent choice of footwear has again put her in the spotlight.

TV personality Martha Stewart posted a photo of Ginsburg at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. Ginsburg was giving the first Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Woman of Leadership Award to philanthropist Agnes Gund.

Stewart wrote:

"Last evening was very special and enlightening Justice @ruth.bader.ginsburg Ruth Bader Ginsberg bestowed the first Woman of Leadership award on Agnes “Aggie” Gund @agnesgund in a formal ceremony in the Library of Congress in Washington.

It was such a distinct pleasure to be involved in such an illustrious event. Thank you Julie Offerman for establishing this distinguished award . And thank you Justice Ginsberg and Aggie Gund for being the leaders you are!!!!!"

The award is wonderful, but Ginsburg's silvery, sparkly heels, paired with white leggings, ended up stealing the show.

Stewart's post, as well as other social media sites, were filled with comments about Ginsburg's heels.

“RBG is Dorothy reincarnated with her slippers,” wrote one reader.

"Hang in there Ruth, America is depending on you! God Bless you," wrote jeanzeccardi.

"The Notorious RGB never fails to amaze!" said tinatheblueschick.

Her Influence Is Felt Far and Wide

In September, 2019, Diana Taurasi, a professional basketball player for the Phoenix Mercury, showed off her "Women of Inspiration" shoes that were made in honor of Ginsburg and Evita Peron, whose images graced the back heel of the shoes.

"Wow. That is, that is fly.... that is so dope," Taurasi is heard saying as she checked out the sneakers.

"That's two badass women right there," Taurasi said while showing off the multicolored shoes.

The Phoenix Mercury's Twitter page went on to describe the two women's accomplishments:

"Ginsburg was the second ever female Supreme Court Justice of the United States of America. She has been a constant advocate for gender equality and women’s rights during her professional career and has been a major contributor to the rights of women today.

Perón was the First Lady of Argentina from 1946-1952 as she made an impact in the women’s suffrage movement there. She formed the Female Peronist Party, the first female political party the nation had seen and is often credited with gaining the right to vote for Argentine Women."

Scrunchies Are Back, Thanks To Ruth

Wearing show-stopping glittery shoes isn't the first fashion statement Ginsburg has made. Ginsburg is often seen in her black robes with her signature lacy collars. And in 2018, she spoke with the "Wall Street Journal" about her choices of hair scrunchies.

“I have been wearing scrunchies for years," she told the paper, and proceeded to rank the best places to get scrunchies.

“My best scrunchies come from Zurich. Next best, London, and third best, Rome. My scrunchie collection is not as large as my collar and glove collections, but scrunchies are catching up,” she adds.

In 2017, the "Journal" noted how scrunchies are circling back around in another fashion comeback.

“Some in the pro-scrunchie camp say they’re gentler than elastics, and easy, like sweatpants for your hair. Scrunchie haters say…they’re like sweatpants for your hair," the paper wrote.

Could we blame this revolution on Ginsburg?
