Manolo Blahnik is certainly modest. His shoes are must-haves for the well-heeled, he's admitted to hating celebrities (and platform pumps!), yet he confessed to Vogue UK, "I don't know why my shoes are so popular--I am always surprised and mystified by it." Blahnik also revealed that he is a bit of a spendthrift and splurges on suits only a few times a year. He told Vogue, "It always feels like an obscene amount of money to spend, but I don't do it often."
