London, Jan 30 (IANS) Well-known shoe designer Jimmy Choo’s clientele includes US First Lady Michelle Obama, but he says his favourite is Hollywood couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.Choo said he was proud that Michelle Obama wore a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes to the inaugural ball earlier this month, but admitted, “Katie and Tom are my favourite customers as they will take the trouble to drop me a thank you note after visiting me to order a pair of shoes.”
“I really appreciate that as they are so rich and famous, but yet remain humble and friendly,” he said, reports telegraph.co.uk.
Choo is now planning to open a network of shoe academies worldwide, with the first to open in Malaysia, his home country.
