Elle has a new feature that identifies your style by the type of shoe you like best. It's a little awkward to use, but once you've managed to tell it which of the eight available shoes is the best, it defines your personal style, gives you a celebrity counterpart, and then advises you about other things you might like to buy. It's a reasonably fun time-waster, but it said we're Victoria Beckham, so we and the applet are officially in a fight now. [Elle]
