Manolo Blahnik and I at Printemps, during the 40 Years Of Glamour’ Opening Exhibition Cocktail Party in Paris

All of those adoring him for his genuine appreciation of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano, as well as for the shoes he designs especially for de la Renta and Dior

Footcandy, a luxury shoes store, whose name could be another great adjective for the difficult to describe Manolo Blahniks

Interview Magazine, who talked to Blahnik and where for a few burning pages one can catch glimpses of the passions and obsessions of a genius

those going for books on and brimming with fashion, when they learn that the master’s illustrations for Manolo Blahnik and the Tale of the Elves and the Shoemaker still give him mixed feelings

the travellers who, literally, visited the 31 West 54th St., New York City boutique and recommend it high on the Trip Advisor lists

Carolina Herrera: ’’He creates shoes that are beautiful works of art and that make a woman’s feet seem like they were carved by Bernini.’’

The Guardian’s fashion editor, the source of the perfect metaphor depicting Manolo Blahnik’s sketches – portaits certainly,

Anna Wintour who rocks her Manolos like nobody else (no wonder, with her experience of wearing the same Manolo shoe style every day since the ’90s…)

Fashion avec Passion and I because Blahnik invited me to his 40 Years Of Glamour celebration party in Paris and gave me his book of drawings as a present WITH HIS SIGNATURE  on the first page (even today I feel like floating when thinking about it)

obviously, Madonna, for whom Manolo Blahnik shoes are ’’better than sex’’

truly the whole world loves him! Just tell me if I forgot someone!
