Beyoncé has seen her fair share of rumours throughout her illustrious career, but she was quick to deny a recent report that she shelled out $400,000 on a single pair of heels. The diamond-encrusted House of Borgezie sandals were said to be purchased for a music video, but the singer’s representative told E! News that the story is "absolutely not true.”
The designer of the shoes had even gave interviews confirming the purchase.
“It’s the ultimate, Beyoncé’s one of those fantasy customers,” Christopher told Birmingham Mail. “If you want someone to model your creations, you can’t get any better than Beyoncé.”
The Crazy in Love singer’s team was reported to have approached the British label after spotting a pair of their shoes in an article in the American press.
“It’s a sale,” Christopher revealed. “I’ve been told the stilettos are for her next video which should be out in the autumn.”
The dazzling stilettos in question are encrusted with 1,290 precious stones, with the design inspired by Paul Simon’s hit song Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes.
The Single Ladies singer was also said to have picked up a gold basque belt worth £55,000, around $112,500 CAD, to accessorise what will no doubt be her show-stopping ensemble.
Beyoncé is no stranger to the world of footwear - she recently teamed up with legendary Italian designer Giuseppe Zanotti to collaborate on a pair of shoes. Giuseppe, 57, revealed that the pair will be ‘ultra-thick platform’ shoes with a stiletto heel, adding that the pop superstar played an active role in the design process.
“Beyoncé has very clear ideas – she knows exactly what she wants,” he toldForbes. “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.”
