Carrie Bradshaw’s Fashion Fairy Godfather Is Getting His Own Documentary


When it comes to shoes, even addict numero uno Carrie Bradshaw was discriminating: Manolo Blahniks, please. The shoe designer is now poised to become even more of a household name thanks to a documentary entitled Manolo (The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards). Still in the production stages, shoe fans can plan on the flick following the same flow as other designer-focused features like last year’s Dior and I and ’90s hit Unzipped: personal and brand histories intertwined with behind-the-scenes access and insight from the fashion community at large.

Having started his career in 1971, Blahnik has had plenty of time to rack up heavyweight fans. Princess Diana, Bianca Jagger, Kate Moss, and Kate Middleton have all been spotted in pairs.

And while there’s no word on whether Sarah Jessica Parker is one of the stars being interviewed (Blahnik says they’ve only met a handful of times), our fingers are officially crossed.
