"Some people count how many pairs of Louboutins they have (ok, I do that too), but I really count my Alaias. I have three pairs. These, my second pair, surfaced at a time when platforms were 'out,' but because they're Alaia, I justified them as an instant classic (not to mention platforms are always appropriate in my book). I wear them constantly, no matter what season, no matter what the occasion. They have traveled with me, multiple times, to the red carpet at the Oscars and the Golden Globes."
