Apparently the Gossip Girl actress will buy up 40 pairs of Louboutin shoes at one time. That’s not embarrassing, that’s something rappers call “balling out of control” and it is awesome.
Because Lively is so obsessed with Christian Louboutin heels, she was at Barney’s in New York on Tuesday to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the brand and the Louboutin book launch party.
“They are the most beautiful shoes out there. And incredibly innovative,” Lively tells People magazine, “It’s embarrassing [how many pairs I have].”
Blake wore a Dolce and Gabbana ensemble, a red Valentino coat and of course some snakeskin Louboutin’s for the event.
When asked which of her many Louboutins is her favorite, she responds, “That’s like asking a mother who their favorite child is! I love them all,” jokes Lively.
Ohh gawwwddd, comedy hour with Blake Lively. My not favorite.
So then, to try and get her to fess up about which pair of heels is her favorite, Stylelist.com asked the starlet if she were stranded on a desert island which pair of heels would she take with her, to which clever Lively dodges the question again:
“That's complicated because you can't wear heels in sand, so I would ask Christian to design a custom shoe for me," explained Lively.
You know what, Blake? Just tell them that the nude peep toe pumps are your favorite because they are so “versatile” or whatever. This chick is so evasive. She dated Penn Badgley for like ever and tried to play it off like they were going over scenes for Gossip Girl…while holding hands…and making out.
Anyways, Mr. Louboutin himself is very much a fan of the actress. After the book launch he literally swept her off her feet, carrying Lively and some other VIP guests to the private afterparty at Le Caprice in the Pierre Hotel.
Louboutin was all about Lively that night. He said, “Not only is she beautiful, she is very talented and she’s very smart.”
“One of the things that is most important for women and men, at least for me, is intelligence. Through a lot of things, she has proved that she is really intelligent and also has this natural beauty and this natural way or moving which makes her absolutely a great image.”
Other celeb guests at the shoe fete included, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Calvin Klein, Tyrese and Alicia Keys.
