Christian Louboutin, Design Museum, London

When talking of high heels, it’s as well to define terms. There are the sort that Marilyn Monroe wore to wiggle along that railway platform in Some Like It Hot. There are the sort that Strictly dancers wear to sharpen their silhouette. And then there are the ones that cause young women to clutch each other for support in the street on a Saturday night, bracing their knees and arching their backs in the attempt to keep upright.


Christian Louboutin has operated its Madison Avenue boutique for a number of years, but has outgrown the 4,400-square-foot space, prompting renovations that will almost double its size. Found at 965-967 Madison Avenue the updated space includes two distinct areas that invites men and women to explore Christian Louboutin ’s collections.

Check out the Differa spotted on one of the broadest rainbows of stars I’ve ever seen: Heidi Klum (she was one of the first, wearing them to this year’s Golden Globes), Kellie Pickler, Agyness Deyn, Debra Messing, and Audrina Patridge. Lindsay Lohan didn’t seem to mind when she and former Spice Girl Mel B showed up in the same shoes at a recent event, and Jennifer Lopez has even worn hers more than once.

Having a look by yourself is better than hearing from my description, go and see the museum , my dear friend!
