Last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan wore a pair of silver patent leather Giuseppe Zanotti platforms that are, arguably, everything.

The Betty, which are currently available in black, gold with a silver heel, or silver with a gold heel, clock in at 5.5 inches (according to Wikipedia, Saoirse is 5′ 6″). These make her very tall!

Saoirse's look has evolved pretty dramatically leading up to this year's Oscars, culminating with the glam, custom Calvin Klein gown she wore on the red carpet. She snuck these shoes in at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in January, but now they're getting all the leg they truly deserve.
