Girls just wanna look at shoes…
The Christian Louboutin exhibition has broken all previous visitor records at the London Design Museum with an average daily attendance of 910 visitors. Humm, I think there were more Loub fanatics desperately trying to get into the Christian Louboutin New York sample sale!

‘It’s been a real pleasure to see a lot of my ‘babies’ featured all together for the first time. It’s not only an entire collection of shoes that I saw there but for me a huge collection of souvenirs, precious moments, and very rarely sorrows,’ says Louboutin.
The exhibition is the first UK retrospective for the King of French footwear and celebrates his illustrious career of keeping fashionistas well-heeled in the most fantastical ways for the past two decades.
Sexy ladies and sexy shoes go together like no other so it is no surprise that at the centre of the Christian Louboutin exhibition is a three-dimensional holographic performance by Dita Von Teese.
Don’t forget that Louboutin is no stranger to burlesque as he was a guest creator at the Crazy Horse in Paris.
