if the Shoe Fits


if the Shoe Fits..

What do Daisy Lowe, Dannii Minogue, Elizabeth Hurley, Fergie, Kylie Minogue, Lindsay Lohan, Madonna and Mary Portas all have in common? Well apart from being independently wealthy and successful career women, they all happen to be clients of Gil Carvalho. For those of you who've been living on Mars, Mr Carvalho is London's hottest shoe designer and was formerly the accessories designer at Vivienne Westwood. When a woman wears vertiginous Gil Carvalho shoes, she places herself on a pedestal and becomes a goddess. My pet name for Gil is Cinderella Man - simply because he makes women feel like a princess. The image above is from an Imelda Marcos themed cover shoot I styled for Spain's WOW Magazine. The model wears Gil Carvalho glitter platform shoes whilst sliding down a patent Versace mule. This image turned out to be rather ironic, as unbeknown to me, Gil had encountered at least two pairs of Versace shoes that bore more than a passing resemblance to his own designs from the previous season. There's no doubt that Donatella's shoe designers deserve a good spanking for their lack of originality. However, they do say that imitation is the highest form of flattery. Valentine's day is just around the corner and for anyone looking to spice things up in or out of the bedroom, your first port of call should be Gil's website: www.gilcarvalho.com
