20 years of louboutin

Girls (and guys!) really go crazy for a red sole. Last night's party was definitely one of the big-ticket fashion events to round off a whirlwind 2011: Christian Louboutin's 20th Anniversary celebration in Hong Kong. The event space was decked out in all things red, the trademark colour of Louboutin's soles: Chinese red lanterns, red lights, red walls. They literally painted the town red. Louboutin has been to Hong Kong several times before, but this occasion was particularly special for him, as he was here to launch his first coffee table book celebrating twenty fabulous years in the business, aptly and simply titled Christian Louboutin. The book is a wonderfully beautiful look back at the designer's life and career, from the early days when he was just starting in the shoe business to his current fetish period, with lots of exclusive photographs and contributions from David Lynch and John Malkovich. It's the perfect Christmas present for all your shoe addict friends (you know they're out there)!

Mr Louboutin... throughout the years! What a character, he always seems to enjoy life to its very fullest!

And, thanks to the amazing Joanna, Christian Louboutin's power PR in Asia, I got a pair of my shoes signed. Best Christmas gift ever; thanks Joanna!
