Although unnumbered fashionistas pine after Louboutin's signature red soles, only one lady can claim she's the designer's top customer: romance novelist Danielle Steel. Louboutin said Steel owns at least 6,000 pairs of his heels, WWD reports:
"She comes to Paris, and she literally buys everything. Then she flies back to New York, says, 'I'm a little disappointed--there's nothing in the store,' and walks out with 80 pairs," he grinned. "She is super."
And while we're talking Louboutin Love, don't even think about altering the color of those soles. Lanvin's Alber Elbaz revealed to Vanity Fair that many moons ago, "I thought the red sole was too strong for my collection, so I painted them black--a great mistake! [Louboutin] almost killed me."
