Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made an unexpected fashion statement when she wore silver glitter high heels to a Washington, D.C. awards ceremony last week, which Instagram users have gotten a real kick out of.
On Valentine’s Day, the octogenarian presented the inaugural Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Woman of Leadership Award at the Library of Congress to philanthropist Agnes Gund. While Justice Ginsburg was all smiles at the event, eagle-eyed social media users quickly noticed something else: she was sporting a surprising choice of shoes.
As seen in a photo shared to Instagram by Martha Stewart, the justice sensibly paired the sparkly shoes with white stockings.
“RBG is Dorothy reincarnated with her slippers,” one user declared, referencing the heroine of “The Wizard of Oz” and her famous ruby slippers.

“A true inspiration,” one agreed of her legacy.
