ShoeperStar: Emma Stone in Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ red high heel shoes

Emma Stone in Christian Louboutin 'Pigalle'

I’ve criticised celebrities for borrowing too-big shoes for their red carpet appearances in the past, but in the case of Christian Louboutin’s ‘Pigalle’, seen here on Emma Stone at the premiere of ‘Gangster Squad’ last night, I’m going to have to eat my words and come to her defence. You see, since acquiring my own pair of Pigalles last year, I now know that:

a) The style runs very large, so a celebrity requesting her usual size may well find them less of a perfect fit than she’d be expecting.

b) Despite the large fit, they ARE still easy enough to walk in. I know, it doesn’t make sense to me either, but it’s true.

c) The slope of the shoe is so steep that the foot is constantly sliding forward, creating a small heel gap, even although it’s still fine to walk in.

Rather than commenting on that gap at the heel, then, I’ll simply say that she looks amazing, and oh, how I covet those red heels!

  • I think it’s fine to have a little gap but sometimes I agree it looks ridiculous! I adore these shoes but alas they aren’t wide enough for my feet. Emma looks stunning x

  • These actually aren’t Pigalles, they are Batignolles (the heel starts wider at the top and is a bit more angled/curved than a Pigalle). And I agree about the gap – I have the Pigalle Finze and it does have a gap on the foot, but is one of the most comfortable stilettos I own (I wore them out all-night bar-hopping for my best friend’s bachelorette party).
