Italian-born shoe designer is definitely a celeb favorite. His often sky-high and occasionally sparkly statement platforms have been on every starlet’s feet ranging from Nicki Minaj, to Mary J. Blige, to Beyoncé, who definitely favors a sexy platform stiletto.
Giuseppe Zanotti recently spoke to Forbes about an upcoming collaboration with Queen Bey, the first for this highly-talented pair.
“I’m doing a shoe with Beyoncé right now,” Giuseppe tells me while showing me an image of a sketch, from his phone. I’m not able to see what the final product will turn out like exactly, but going by the sketch, Beyoncé has a thing for ultra thick platform stilettos. “Beyoncé has very clear ideas – she knows exactly what she wants. The thing which she then also has over other celebrities, is that she has an amazing voice. She’s incredibly talented and she’s an amazing dancer – she’s complete. Few are like Beyoncé,” the designer says about the multiple Grammy award-winning artist he has known ever since her Destiny’s Child days. “I’m working on finalizing the shoe with her stylist right now. And Beyoncé will then say what she likes and what she doesn’t like. It will be one shoe only,” Zanotti concludes with regards to the shoe that will certainly get the BeyHive craving.
We can expect to see the final product in about two weeks. The designer also revealed a collaboration with Kid Kudi.
