When Christian Louboutin was thinking about Christmas tokens to thank the fashion press for their continued support this year, he did something both fabulous and delicious. When the fashion team clustered around a very large box there was some ridiculous excitement - was it shoes, a clutch bag? Indeed it was, but they were these most adorable sugar cookies in the shape of his shoe and bag collection from the A/W 08 season. The renditions of the collection were so good, we just had to get on the ohone to the makers of the cookies Tania Smith and her sister Melanie Snoad from Kookycookies.co.uk, who told us they have made hundreds of the Louboutins. They sent their lookbook, we made 20 designs, they selected 14 of them, we made the cookie cutters and off we went! I'm glad you likes them," said Tania. Kooky Cookies is clearly the secret cookie weapon of the fashion set. We hear Stella McCartney is working with the sisters as we nibble through our tasty Louboutins with our afternoon tea!
