Christian Louboutin would love to see Queen Elizabeth II step out in a pair of his shoes one day.
The French designer has built his eponymous label around his signature shiny, red-soled stilettos, which are coveted by fashionistas around the globe, including celebrities such as Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez, and Blake Lively.
However, Louboutin has now confessed that the one person he would truly be honoured to see sport his designs is Britain’s monarch.
“I would love to see the Queen of England in my shoes,” he told The Independent, before going on recall one occasion in which he briefly thought the 93-year-old was wearing a pair of Louboutins.
“She was stepping out of a car and you couldn’t see, but there was a red carpet there and because of that, there was a reflection and it looked like the sole of her shoe was red! So many people called me and said, ‘Oh my God, the Queen of England!'”
Louboutin soon realised The Queen was wearing her signature black mid-height heels, though the moment did give him quite the thrill.
Elsewhere in the chat, the Frenchman discussed how he came to create his popular line of ballet flats and high heels which complement a wide range of skin tones, as well as his enduring passion for the colour red.
“Red is fire, blood, love and passion,” the designer smiled. “It carries a symbolism that you don’t get with other shades.”
Among all of his various ventures, Louboutin is currently gearing up to showcase his vast shoe collection in a new exhibition in Paris. After funding a partial restoration of the Palais de la Porte Doree, he will take over more than 14,000 square foot of the Art Deco-inspired location in February 2020.
