The red-soled-shoe guru admits that he’s a big fan of the song, and that he knows all the words

Red-soled-shoe connoisseur Christian Louboutin, admits that he's a fan of Jennifer Lopez's latest single - and so he should be, seeing as it was named after his delectable designs!

With any celebrity worth their style salt having stepped out in a pair of his most covetable of footwear, the French designer is no stranger to A-list admirers.

But Jennifer Lopez has taken her Louboutin love to a whole new level, by recording a song about them.

‘Jennifer told me about the song back in January, and I was extremely flattered,' Christian told Fashion Week Daily. ‘I know the song by heart now.'

And brilliantly, in an attempt to avoid the ultimate fashion faux pas, J.Lo contacted the designer himself - to check that she was pronouncing his name correctly.

‘Of course, in America, the public pronounces my name like in a million different ways,' he explained.

‘So Jennifer called me, and she was like, ‘Listen, I want to make sure I get it right.' And she did... from the very first time!'

And it seems this mutual appreciation between the pair is set to continue, as Christian is currently hard at work creating some scene-stealing designs for the single's video - due to be shot in a few weeks.

That's going to be one super-stylish shoot...

Don't worry fashion fans, we'll be the first to let you know as soon as the video surfaces!

Louboutins is the first release from Jen's upcoming Love? album.
