A reliable source has informed me Fadlallah does NOT allow the feet to be shown. Here is a ruling from his website:
Q: What are the Islamic characteristics of the woman’s veil?
A: The veil can be defined with respect to the following terms:
First; the veil means a whole cover to the body except the hands and the face
, both of which some other jurists see the necessity of an obligatory precaution in covering them. But some other jurists and I believe that it is allowed to reveal them in accordance with His saying: “Say to the believing women to turn their eyes away (from temptation) and to preserve their chastity, to cover their adornments except such as are normally displayed.”(The Light (Nour); 31). Thus, women are obliged to cover their bodies and to avoid what ever is transparent and thin.http://english.bayyn...nce/Fashion.htm

If I say wealth distracted me, they will bring Sulaiman as proof. If I say my youth deluded me, they will bring Yusuf as proof. If I say fear prevented me, they will bring Hussain as proof. If i say I was impatient, they will bring al-Mehdi as proof. No excuses.
