'Jimmy Choo XV': New Book Showcases Famous Stilettos (PHOTOS)

What words do you associate with Jimmy Choo? Personally, I immediately think of glamour, stilettos and utter luxury. To celebrate the brand's 15th anniversary, Choo has released an opulent coffee table book that embodies the glittery essence of the shoe company.

"Jimmy Choo XV," looks back at the most iconic shoes from the brand's past: including those strappy numbers worn by stars like Kiera Knightly, Nicole Richie and Sarah Jessica Parker's on screen counterpart Carrie Bradshaw. "Around the office, we refer to the shoe styles as, 'She,'" Tamara Mellon, Jimmy Choo's co-founder wrote in the book's preface. These fantastic shoes are even personified into characters that lead fabulous lives, "'Glenys' is attending an art opening before she hops the Eurostar back to London. 'Macy' is headed into hair and makeup before she hits the step and repeat. 'Fleur' has a board meeting this morning followed by lunch with her banker. Amongst the thousands of shoes that have been created, each has her own story."

In addition to photos of stars in the shoes, the elaborate book features illustrations of the acoutrements, images by artists such as Richard Philips, ads from the brand's archive and interviews with friends of the brand such as Natalie Massenet, founder of Net-a-Porter, photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, and many more.

'Jimmy Choo XV' is currently for sale for $95 on JimmyChoo.com and available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
