Beyoncé has bought £200,000 shoes for her new video

"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 approached the British label after spotting a pair of their shoes in an article in the American press, and got in touch on behalf of the star to buy the shoes for her latest exciting project.

"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 are encrusted with 1,290 precious stones, with the design inspired by Paul Simon's hit song Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes.

However, it wasn't just the shoes that caught the singer's attention. The Single Ladies singer also bought a gold basque belt worth £55,000 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 told Forbes. "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."
