Christian Louboutin has revealed he was terrified Tina Turner would fall while wearing his shoe designs during an adventurous stage show.
The designer created footwear for the singer to wear during a concert in Madison Square Garden in New York some years ago but was horrified when he realised her adventurous routine included climbing scaffolding in the skyscraper heels.
He told WWD: ''I remember doing shoes for Tina Turner and bringing them to Madison Square Garden for her show, and when the show opened all I could see was scaffolding on the stage, and I thought, Oh, my god, she's going to climb on the scaffolding and jump from the scaffolding. I was paralysed; I couldn't enjoy the show as I was so worried about her breaking her neck. I knew the height of the heel. You just don't want this to happen.''
While all of Christian's designs hold a special memory for him, he admitted he does have a favourite.
Asked which shoe he would save from a burning building, he said: ''I would go for more of an emotional one. I would go for the Love shoe, which was my first shoe and was really the birth of my company.''
