Rucuss staffDecember 15, 2011
VH1’s Love & Hip Hop star Emily B shows off her Christian Louboutin shoe collection in the new issue of PYNK Magazine.
Emily has over 200 pairs of the expensive red bottoms in her closet. Emily, who is a celebrity stylist and up and coming designer, is clearly a loyal customer of the brand. In the PYNK interview, she talks about spending $5000 on a pair of shoes and what every woman should have in her closet.
Emily doesn’t disclose how much her shoe collection is worth. But its well in the thousands considering her $5,000 purchase and the fact that Louboutin’s price tags range from $545 and up.
Here’s a few excerpts from the PYNK interview:
What’s the most you’ve spent on one pair of shoes?
$5000. And they were special edition – crystallized, but I would never do it again. It would have to be a very special occasion. Other than that, I don’t want to spend over $3000. Never again.
Do you find that your passion for shoes influences you as a stylist?
It’s just a part of being a stylist. I love to shop, I love fashion, and I love girly things. Shoes are definitely an inspiration for me. I start off with the shoes and work my way up and around it.
Tell us about some of your entrepreneurial pursuits.
I’m actually starting my own clothing line, called Emily B. It’s going to be feminine, chic, trendy, and of course, affordable. I want to start a line that all women and young girls of all ages can wear and afford.
What’s the perfect “PYNK” girl shoe?
Every girl should own a good black pump, even if it’s just an open-toed pump. It’s versatile — she can wear it with anything, she can wear it with jeans, she can dress it up and wear it out with a cocktail dress…
