Victoria Beckham gifted Duchess Kate a pair of Louboutins
Christian Louboutin has seriously upped the Duchess of Cambridge's fashion credentials with a new revelation.
The legendary footwear designer said that Victoria Beckham gave the royal, née Kate Middleton, a pair of his boots.
"I have all respect for what Kate Middleton is doing," said the legendary shoe designer during an interview with 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."
It is not known when Victoria gave Kate the boots, but it may have been a wedding present – the former Spice Girl and her former footballer husband David attended Kate's wedding to Prince William in 2011.
The famous red-sole numbers would have been quite the departure from the LK Bennett nude heels that have become Kate's signature footwear – most likely due to their comfort factor.

But comfort is something that isn't on Mr. Louboutin's radar.
"I don't think of comfort when I'm designing a shoe. You can't," he said.
"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.'"
