Jimmy Choo tries to woo Kate Middleton
It sounds like most girls' dreams come true, doesn't it? Legendary shoe designer Jimmy Choo is apparently clamouring to design for the Duchess of Cambridge, who has been seen in his footwear on one of the rare occasions when she didn't wear her favourite nude platform heels" Kate wore his off-the-shelf Vamp Glitter sandals at a BAFTA party last summer in Hollywood, and Choo has hoped to add her to his list of celebrity muses ever since.
Michelle Williams, Gwyneth Paltrow and Charlize Theron are among Choo's star customers, and he's designed a shoe in honour of each of them. We're sure he's got some sneaky sketches lined up for Kate, who will soon be visiting his home country of Malaysia in September as part of the ongoing Jubilee tour.
Choo has said he was 'proud' to see Kate wearing his designs and has predicted that 'Asia will go crazy' when the Duke and Duchess pay their visit later in the year. He added: 'Kate knows how to choose her own image. It's very important she promotes UK designers.'
