Tara Palmer-tomkinson - Tara Palmer-tomkinson Detained By Airport Officials Over Gun Heels
British socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson triggered a security alert at an airport in Switzerland on Sunday (24Mar13) with a pair of gun-shaped high heels.
The Tv star and friend to the royal family was detained by security bosses at Zurich Airport on her way back to London from a trip to ski resort Klosters.
Taking to Twitter.com, she writes, "Was arrested at Zurich airport with my Chanel killer heels in my luggage... not a good look on the x Ray!!”
A representative for Palmer-Tomkinson insists she wasn't actually arrested, just held until authorities had checked the shoes.
The spokesperson says, “She did have the shoes on her and her luggage was double checked because of it."
Madonna came under fire for wearing the same shoes, designed by Chanel boss Karl Lagerfeld, in 2008, with some critics suggesting the designer heels glamorised gun culture and violence.
