More Accolades for Manolo

Speaking of Manolo, it looks like there are even more awards for our favorite designer.

Now, as noted by Vogue -

Manolo Blahnik's contribution to fashion will be immortalised in September when he receives the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Award in LA.

Recognising the UK-based cobbler's impact on fashion within the entertainment industry - most recently in the Sex and the City movie - The Rodeo Drive Committee and the City of Beverley Hills has awarded Blahnik with its 12th annual Walk of Style Award.

Following in the footsteps of Giorgio Armani (who won the first award in 2003), Salvatore Ferregamo, Gianni and Donatella Versace and Tom Ford, Blahnik will receive a plaque to adorn with his signature and a quote that will sit on the famous Los Angeles sidewalk.

Aside from Sex and the City and Absolutely Fabulous, the designer's iconic shoes won a costume design award for Marie Antoinette and he is now a household name, known for luxury and elegance.

(He deserves that award. Look at these! I want them)
As Wanda McDaniel, chairman of the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style selections committee tells The Daily: "Manolo Blahnik's relationship with the entertainment industry is legendary."

Congratulations, Mnsr. Manolo!

Sex and the City seems to have a polarizing effect on both men and women... people either love the movie or they hate it
