Watch: A Rare Peek Inside Vogue's Glorious Shoe Closet
God Save My Shoes is the long-awaited documentary about the relationship between women and their shoes. If that sounds a bit cheesy, well, it might be, but upon seeing some of the footage from the film, we realized they got some really good stuff. There are interviews with Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, Walter Steiger, Pierre Hardy, Bruno Frisoni, and Robert Clergerie, as well as shoe-obsessed celebs like Fergie and Dita Von Teese (Coco must not have been available). The film is set to premiere in Paris during fashion week, but for now, check out this production diary which takes you inside the infamous Vogue shoe closet.
