The book is in six chapters. The first chapter is dedicated to Louboutin's life and his rise to today's icon: his first steps as a designer for Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent to the opening of his very first boutique in 1992, also revealing unseen-before photographs from his personal archives.

Chapter four allows the reader a sneak-peak into Louboutin's private homes in Paris, and Luxor in Egypt as well as his workshops and studios. Moreover, chapter five is dedicated to his collaboration with David Lynch; a limited-edition line of jaw-dropping shoes, accompanied with limited-edition photographs by Lynch, named -no surprises here- 'Fetish'. Last but not least, the book concludes with a bang, as chapter six is a 'catalogue raisonne' of Louboutin's 120 shoe designs.
Written by Christian Louboutin, foreword by John Malkovich, contribution by Eric Reinhardt and photographed by Philippe Garcia and David Lynch, this is a guaranteed success.
