Long before SJP played out her Manolo obsession as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and The City, the most eccentric character in footwear (and possibly fashion) had a legion of fans including Vogue US Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour, who declares in a new documentary about the shoe maker's life "I can't remember the last time I wore anything else."
Titled 'Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards,' the biopic is directed by Blahnik's longtime friend and confidant Michael Roberts and offers an intimate, and lighthearted look into his life and incredible career. “Having known Manolo for over 45 years, I can say he is a multifaceted intellectual and romantic whose engaging mind and ingenious work is made for entertaining cinema,” said Roberts on the film which will debut September 15.
Featuring family, fans and friends in fashionable places including Naomi Campbell, Karlie Kloss and Rihanna, the feature is packed with Blahnik's hilarious one-liners, entertaining anecdotes and a personal insight into his story.
