Uh-oh! Looks like one of Hollywood's favorite designers is caught up in a major fashion feud.

Jimmy Choo's former colleague Tamara Mellon slammed the famed heel designer on Today, saying he never created a single shoe!

"The original idea was for Jimmy to design the collection, and I would run the operations of the business. But it soon became very clear that Jimmy's skill was in making shoes. He's a cobbler," she told the show's correspondent Jenna Bush Hager.

But that's not all. She added she didn't get one sketch from him—ever!

So, even though the duo cofounded the brand together, she says she was essentially the real mastermind behind the heels' designs.

Yet despite her departure from the company in 2011, the brand continues to be the go-to shoe of choice for stars. Apparently Choo, or whomever has been designing for the last few years, has been doing something right!
