Carlota, Christian Louboutins shoes are easy to recognise because they all have red soles, forinstance Olga of Greeece says she ONLY wears his shoes (ofcourse that would make anyone green with envy), so on all pictures of her you can see the red trademark sole on her shoes, the pics posted of the shoes above are not the best but in closeup you can see the red sole peeping out on the heel and under the shoes.

I did not know who Manolo was until the TV series Sex in the City made him the most popular must-have shoe name in New York. Almost like a shoe god for the city wear. There was even an episode discussing the character spending all her money in shoes she could have used for a loan on an apartment.

Here are his creations at the British Design Museum

...Thanks in part to Sex And The City Manolo Blahnik has become one of the handful of designers whose name is synonymous with their product. In his case it is his Christian name, because “Manolo” is now used as slang to describe very expensive, very beautiful shoes: even by the millions of people who have never actually seen a pair of Manolo Blahniks and could not dream of spending $300 or $400 to buy them....

I am quite sure Infanta Elena has some Manolos.

Don Jaime is a big fan of it and he even offered Dona Letizia a pair to use in her wedding day, so I am sure he must have offered some to his wife.

But :(, I'm not big fan of shoes, sandals and so on (to be honest I have to double check threads whenever you mention that accessory ;))...but I will look to find.

Perhaps we should also start a thread on Royals in Christian Louboutin shoes. Lol. The Monegasque ladies seem quite fond of his creations. I must admit, the shoe threads are among my favourite on this forum.

Oh this is a great thread. :)

I'm sure Infanta Elena has a few pairs of Manolos. Here are some photos of her husband is coming out of a Manolo Blahnik store and yes he is carrying a bag. Most likely a gift for his wife!:)

It says he even has invested in it. I need to ask my husband to invest in Manolo Blahnik. Although I doubt it will go over well. :p

Jaime de Marichalar, Infanta Elena's husband, comes out of a Manolo Blahnik shop in which he has some invesments.

Jaime de Marichalar and his sister Ana are associates of Manolo's shop in Madrid that was inaugurated last year ... this way it is it is normal to see the women of the family with Loewe's purses, company of which Jaime is counselor and Laura Ponte image.;)

Don't forget Princess Grace and her namesake bag.

I always wonder how you guys can recognise the brand of the clothes/shoes/ bags. bags are easy, cos they have the logo on them. but how do you recognise the clothes/shoes? do you recognise the design cos you have seen the design on the runway/on magazines or when you see something new royals wear, you look them up on the websites of the designers?

kelly9480 06-19-2006 02:10 AM

Clothes are easy to recognise if you know which designers a person favors. For designer labels, you can look them up on Style. Shoes are harder, but some, like Christian Louboutin, have trademarks (his are red soles).
