Hooray so I'm not a lunatic for thinking men in the 18th century were attractive. :)

There is nothing wrong with some make up if the accent is on looking regal, classic and posh! :angel3: The problem was that people exaggerated often...

I like how the right hand is placed on the pommel of the sword ( is that the correct part?).

I don't think it's snobbish at all.

I read that men of royalty would wear red heels to show off their high standing ( the heel was red not the whole shoe) .After reading that , everytime I looked at portraits or royal men I noticed their red heels...

Well it is some combination of being proud and a bit snobbish. However there is a thin line between being proud, dignified and being snobbish or too self-conscious.

That’s true, that was a way of supporting the king also.
I always notice it when I see Valmont in the movie Dangerous Liaisons.

How fascinating. Was the red heel thing exclusively French or did many European aristocrats from various countries wear them? Also, would an aristocratic French child have worn them, let us say the son of the French ambassador to Vienna, for example. (if he were about 11, 12 or 13)
Thanks,
Ray
