Manolo Blahnik

Spanish fashion designer Manolo Blahnik is considered one of the world's most influential footwear designers. He has won several CFDA Awards (1987, 1990 and 1998) and British Fashion Council Awards (1990, 1999). His exquisite stiletto heel designs became very famous thanks to the TV show "Sex and the City", where the main character Carrie Bradshaw frequently mentions her love to her "Manolos". Nowadays Manolo Blahnik's shoes are considered style masterpieces.

I highly recommend you to take a look at his homepage and the online edition of Vogue Spain, where you can find some pictures of his most famous designs and himself, and parts of an interview with Manolo Blahnik.

Vogue UK January 1974 
A fact I would like to highlight is that Manolo Blahnik was the first man on the cover of Vogue UK. It was in 1974 and he appears with the actress Anjelica Huston, both holding a champagne flûte and wearing elegant clothes. As background, the photographer David Bailey chose a beach located in the South of France.
