I've never been quiet about my love for shoes, especially Christian Louboutin shoes. The red sole is eye catching and as soon as I slip my pair on, I know that it is going to be a good (okay, a little painful) night. When I heard that the Christian Louboutin was going to be in London for the launch of his new book and would be signing copies at Harvey Nichols, I knew that I had to be there.
Nothing could have prepared me for the Louboutin-mania that had taken over the fourth floor of Harvey Nichols with the queue winding around the floor at least twice!
Anyway, to cut a long story short, this is Mr. Christian Louboutin...
He was so nice and was greeting all of his fans with a big smile, posed for photos, autographing books... I actually let out a little squeal when I saw him!
And this is the moment where I, The 6 Inch Stilettos, met my idol, Christian Louboutin... The man who created the six inch stilettos!!!
Our conversation was short, not like I could have sat there for hours on end with him, but he did ask me where my family was originally from after he saw my name and when I said "India", he followed with "Ahh, does your name come from the holy city of Amritsar?" - Needless to say, I fell in love with him a little bit more. I gave him a little hug, the photographer snapped the shot and off I went... A heavy book in tow and floating on cloud 9!
I may not have worn my Louboutin stilettos to meet their maker but I did manage to snap a shot of Monsieur Louboutin's shoes which were pretty damn impressive...
I'm still floating on cloud 9 and can't believe that I actually met Christian Louboutin.... It might just outweigh the time I met Jimmy Choo (Sorry, Choo!) - Now, if someone can introduce me to Manolo Blahnik next time he is in town, that would be great!
Until next time...
Keep swivelling those hips in your
