<object height="350" align="left" width="350"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/qGQqNmYOqRc&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0" /> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed height="350" align="left" width="350" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/qGQqNmYOqRc&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>It's that time again for the Fall and Winter boot trends and thigh highs are definitely in.<br /><br />Conservatives will argue that the look is trashy, but shoe loving trend followers will ask how can we make the look oh so classy?<br /><br />In the video to the left, CBS tries to give you a general idea of how to appropriately achieve the look — take it and run with it whichever direction you like.  It's only my opinion that thigh highs have always been happy hooker boots, and they always will be.  However, that's not to say that I don't love them, I've owned several pair, and I'm ready for another.<br /><br />All across the Fall 2009 runways designers showcased a multitude of thigh high boot styles ranging from flats, platforms and high heels made from leather, suede and other materials.<br /><br />Crazy: the trend is so heavily rooted in so many different ways, Peter Jensen designed a pair of these in-style boots and received death threats because it <a target="_resource window" href="http://nymag.com/daily/fashion/2009/03/greenland_deeply_offended_by_p.html">deeply offended the Greenland society</a>?  Forgive me for not reading too deep into that one.<br /><br />In any case, you can believe that whatever the high fashion runways command for, the people will flock to.  Which means, it wasn't long before celebrities were being spotted here and there, and showing up on the red carpets sporting the trend the very best they knew how.<br /><br /> <div style="text-align: left;">Ashanti is shown wearing a pair of Fall 2009 Louis Vuitton Platform Thigh High Boots priced at $3,784, and Rihanna is shown wearing a pair of Stella McCartney Thigh High Cut Out Boots priced at $1,595.<br /><br /> <div style="text-align: center;">&lt;img src="http://www.soulfulbeauty.com/images/articles/ashantilvth1.jpg" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.soulfulbeauty.com/images/articles/rihannastellath1.jpg" alt="" /><br /><br /> <div style="text-align: left;">Some of the hottest styles I've seen thus far are by Rodarte and Christian Louboutin.  Ciara is shown wearing a pair of Christian Louboutin Fall 2009 Cut Out Thigh High Boots, and super model Jourdan Dunn is shown rocking the runway with a pair of Rodarte Fall 2009 Thigh High Boots.<br /><br /> <div style="text-align: center;"><img src="http://www.soulfulbeauty.com/images/articles/ciarath1.jpg" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.soulfulbeauty.com/images/articles/jdunnrodarteth1.jpg" alt="" style="width: 334px;
