Manolo Blahnik, the man about the fabulous heels, has definitely made his mark on the fashion industry.
"Sex and the City made my name mainstream. Mrs [Candace] Bushnell loved my shoes and next thing I knew, I was the talk of the town. It was very flattering, but feels so long ago."
On the matter of dressing Princess Diana's feet (she would actually visit him at his Chelsea boutique way back when), Manolo reveals, "Princess Diana had a glow. But she was also very normal. I don't like to talk about her as it's still too painful – I loved her dearly."
Relationship wise? "I don't fall in love with people, I fall in love with art. Relationships for me are a no-no.
"Imagine having to talk to someone all the time or waking up with them breathing all over you. Not for me at all. I find it very uncivilised."
