Blake Lively has revealed that it’s Christian Louboutin she turns to for advice on what’s hot to trot. Well if our BFF was a luxury French shoe designer, so would we.
The Gossip Girl star appears on US Elle’s front cover for their March issue and has revealed: ‘When I’m going to an event, I’ll send Christian [Louboutin] a picture of my outfit and say, ‘What shoes do you think I should wear with this?’ How handy!
Blake is famously one of the only women in Hollywood not to have a stylist (and does rather well without one!), although we reckon having Christian Louboutin on tap is cheating a little, no?
The pair have become close friends since their first meeting on a fashion shoot for US Vogue in Paris. The shoe hero even gave her a tour of the city on his scooter – how chivalrous! But, to truly cement the relationship, the luxe shoe designer named a pair of his famous heels ‘The Blake’ after she had a personal tour of his atelier (we're not jealous at all. Well, maybe just a tad).
By now, Blake has hundreds of Loubs in her closet — and let's not forget when the actress bought a whooping 40 pairs of heels in one hit at the New York sample sale. She even dressed as Louboutin's signature shoe sole, thanks to a red leather coat, and has sported the designer's bizarre animal paw toes.
So check out the gallery above of our favourite Blake outfits (complete with Louboutins, of course). And let us know which pair of heels you like the best. Her Pigalle snakeskin shoes, perhaps? Or maybe those Altadama suede platform peeptoe pumps? We just can’t decide...
