It was a very well-heeled group of people who turned out to celebrate with top shoe designer Manolo Blahnik this week as he received a prestigious Rodeo Drive Walk Of Style Award.

Celebrating a career that spans more than 30 years, friends and family joined the shoe king for a glamorous party in Beverly Hills. The gong marks his contribution to fashion and entertainment and he now has a plaque on the exclusive shopping street, alongside the likes of Giorgio Armani and Tom Ford.

“I haven't yet digested it totally but it's a great honour,” says the stylish Spaniard who now lives in London.

Among the stars – all sporting the master's footwear, of course – paying tribute were Charlie's Angels actress Lucy Liu, fellow designer Kathy Hilton and Lizzie McGuire star Hilary Duff.

"He's so chic and sophisticated he's lovely," praised Lucy, who teamed her "Manolos" with a stunning black-and-white Giambattista Valli frock. "It's who he is and he puts it all in his design, into his shoes."
