"I have all respect for what Kate Middleton is doing," Christian Louboutin told The Times. "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."
The Duchess of Cambridge is famous for supporting British designers with her fashion picks. After all, Jenny Packham, Alexander McQueen and Temperley London are all U.K. fashion houses that claim hefty closet space in Middleton's enviable wardrobe.
But for Parisian label Christian Louboutin, the 32-year-old could certainly make a diplomatic style exception. Now the real question—where are the boots?
Because Kate's mid-calf version above is Aquatalia, and we've yet to identify a pair of Kate's boots definitively as Louboutins. But given the summer heat, it's no surprise the duchess's footwear de choix remains a version of her favorite mid-heeled nude shoe. But come chilly fall weather, it's likely Middleton will whip out the red-soled boots at some point.
