Sam Smith felt "so good" after wearing heels to an industry event for the first time at the GQ Men of the Year Awards.
The 27-year-old singer donned a pair of heeled boots to the annual awards ceremony held at the Tate Modern in London, which marked the first time he has ever worn heels to a red carpet event.
And Sam - who paired his boots with a black lace shirt and a classic black tux - feels so happy to have been able to wear the footwear without fear of prejudice.
Posting a picture of the boots on Instagram, he wrote: "Tonight I wore heels for the first time to an award show. I've just got home from a gorgeous evening and as I was walking to my front door I stopped and listened to my heels clonking against the floor. And I just thought 'F** K YES'!! There was a time where I thought I'd never ever ever be able to be myself like this in front of the industry or anyone. It feels so good and I just wanted to share that with you all, and share a picture of my GORJ Gucci heels. They'll always be my virgin heels (sic)"
