Kate Middleton was given a pair of Louboutin boots by Victoria Beckham
So when Christian Louboutin said in an interview recently that VB had given the Duchess of Cambridge a pair of his shoes, we were all ears.
Speaking to The Times ahead of his new nail polish launch, Louboutin said: 'I know that Victoria Beckham offered her a pair of my boots and she looked great in them. She's been photographed wearing my boots. She looked fantastic.'
How, when and why Mrs B presented Kate with the boots, we're not sure. And we still can't find the photos Mr Louboutin speaks of. But given that David Beckham and Prince William worked together on the campaign for England's bid for the 2018 World Cup – and Victoria and David were guests at the royal wedding – maybe it's not so strange after all.
Could the boots have been VB's wedding gift to Kate? It would have been better than a set of towels, that's for sure.
