Red Sole

There's always one designer piece that EVERYONE covets, from a classic Chanel 2.55 Bag to a perfectly British Burberry Trench.

Now shoes come and go and of course most women would sell their Grandma's for some Jimmy Choo's or Manlo Blahnik's but in more recent years there's been a certain red sole that has captured women's hearts and become a lust have, synonymous with Hollywood Glamour and Splendour.

Getting inspiration from his assistant Christian Louboutin first painted the soles of his shoes red after seeing her painting her nails red and thought about using that in his line of shoes.

Ever since his shoes have been worn by everyone from Beyonce and Sarah Jessica Parker to Penelope Cruz and his gorgeous muse Blake Lively.

And it is because of his high status and long career that London Design Museum is holding an exhibition of the wonderful shoe designer that is Christian Louboutin, taking the public through personal archives of designs and drawings from original sketches all the way to production. All showcasing his career from apprentice to working with Chanel and YSL all the way to his own line in 1989.

Running from 28th March-July 1st, I for one am hoping to go and get me some serious shoe porn!
