Fashion-forward R&B singer Solange was left hanging her head in shame after she failed to recognise top shoe designer CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN and jokingly threatened to "kill him" for his footwear.
The singer took to her Twitter.com page earlier this week (ends04Dec09) to share her shame with fans online, describing how embarrassed she was after a recent encounter with two stylishly-clothed men.
Beyonce's younger sister confesses to criticising Louboutin's business sense to one of the males - who turned out to be the designer's assistant - only to realise the other man was Louboutin himself.
She explains on her blog, "I saw a man wearing the new men's studded Oxford Louboutins. I told him I would kill him for them and... how stupid Louboutin was for making them for men first... also a series of other crazy things came out of my mouth. The guy said, 'You are wrong, he made them for women too, they just have not come out yet.' I say, (sic) 'I know my Loubitons (sic)'. He said, 'I KNOW Mr Louboutin, so I think I know.' And then (my friend) walks over and introduces me to 'Mr Louboutin'...
"BUT, just to be clear, I was talking to his assistant who was standing next to Mr. Louboutin, but it was Mr Louboutin who had on the shoes who I threatened. BUT in my defense, still told him I would kill him over the shoes, then added, 'See that's what you do to us women. You make us crazy and want to threaten people over your shoes.'"
