Best foot forward: Victoria Beckham gave Kate Middleton a pair of Louboutins

Stylish women must stick together.
Shoe designer to the stars Christian Louboutin has said that former Spice Girls member Victoria Beckham has gifted the future Queen of England with a pair of his heels.
The creator of those iconic red soles told British Vogue,"I have respect for what Kate Middleton is doing."
"I know that Victoria Beckham offered her a pair of my boots and she looked great in them….She looked fantastic," he added.
The Duchess has yet to be photographed in a pair of the designer’s heels, as she is evidently still favouring her staple nude LK Bennett courts.
The purveyor of the coveted heels has long admitted that comfort is not a priority when it comes to creating his shoes:
"I don't think of comfort when I'm designing a shoe," he said in 2012, "Of course, things need to be done properly - a shoe is made to be walked in - but creatively, I'm not thinking about comfort at all. The first emotion I want to provoke is: 'How beautiful! How sexy!' I don't want people to think: 'How comfortable.'"
Perhaps K-Mids won’t be giving up the mid-heel any time soon in that case.
