Roland Mouret claims he loved shoes ''long before'' he began a career designing dresses as footwear is all a woman needs to look good.
Simon Cowell has had his garden bushes cut into the shape of his head.
The music mogul has given his garden at his west London home a complete overhaul and decided to pay homage to himself by making a three-tiered, head-shaped bush the centerpiece.
A source said: ''Simon is very particular about his $14 million house and needs everything to be perfect. He decided to overhaul his plot and, after consulting a landscape gardener, thought it would be hilarious to have little replicas of his hair everywhere.
''He briefly considered having topiary faces, too, but figured that would be a little extreme. So he plumped for the hair-shaped bushes.
''Simon has also had his terrace re-done, because the limestone tiles were ever so slightly askew. Finally, he has had a huge sculpture installed: two precise elliptical circles, representing his never-ending quest for perfection.''
As well as having his garden re-done, Simon, 52, has also had his basement gym refurbished, with mirrors put up everywhere.
The source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Simon has some state-of-the-art exercise machines and a huge plasma TV on which he generally watches his own shows.''
