Blake Lively Talks About Being Christian Louboutin's Muse, A Modern Day Cinderella

by guestofaguest · December 2, 2010

Blake Lively, notorious for eschewing interview attempts, spoke only about Christian Louboutin at the 24th Annual FN Achievement Awards at MoMA.

She strutted in late clinging to the designer and wearing mesh ankle booties. Lively, of course, pinned down her identity as a fashionista when riding around Paris on a Vespa with Louboutin this summer, as she revealed on "LIVE! With Regis & Kelly":

But why, besides the inevitable gains of this advertising plug, has she taken such pains to promote the brand?

"You know, it's just, they're magical," she said. "It's the same feeling you got when you watched Cinderella.You know the feeling you got when you watched Cinderella? Every time you slip into a pair of [Louboutin's] shoes, they make you feel empowered, they make you feel beautiful, they make you feel magical. You can be anybody you want to be."

It has been said that Louboutin claims it takes a woman like Lively to inspire him; what does she think about being a shoe muse?

"That's like the biggest honor in the whole world for Louboutin to say something like that," she said. "I mean, I love his shoes, so so so much, I have just an absurd amount of his shoes, so maybe that's why he's so inspired by me, cause I'm so inspired by him."

And with those platitudinous remarks, she walked off with Robyn Lively, her sister known for roles on "Doogie Howser" and "Twin Peaks."
