According to legend of the shoe world, Christian Louboutin, VB gifted one pair of fabulous Louboutin heels to the Duchess of Cambridge for her 30th birthday. Um, best present ever?
‘I know that Victoria Beckham offered her a pair of my boots and she looked great in them’, he told The Times. She’s been photographed wearing my boots. She looked fantastic.’
Trust Ms Beckham to be the most stylish gift giver ever.
Mr Louboutin also went on to admit that when it comes to designing his fierce foot candy, he’s rarely thinking of how many Compeed plasters the lucky wearer will end up buying (oh, we’ve all been there…).
‘I don’t think of comfort when I’m designing a shoe. You can’t,’ he said. ‘Of course, things need to be done properly – a shoe is made to be walked in – but creatively I’m not thinking about comfort at all. The first emotion I want to provoke is: “How beautiful! How sexy!” I don’t want people to think, “How comfortable.”’
We don’t think there’s any danger of that. We can imagine Kate strutting her stuff and looking totally fabulous in those racy red soles as we type…
