Louboutin's Aswân Retreat

When I think of the "greats" of the moment - true stars living among us today - I love believing that they live lives of leisure and grandeur. Seeing these unexpected shots of Christian Louboutin practicing yoga by an outdoor fireplace near the banks of the Nile certainly fits that bill.

For anyone who follows Maryam's blog over the years and has kept an eye on the development and growth of Peacock Pavillions, you'll appreciate that this celebrity was not immune to the challenges of construction. “A thousand times I thought I was going out of my mind,” he jokes. Often, just finding materials was a challenge. And when they were on hand, it was often too hot to gain progress on his Egyptian home.

In the end, he took what was once a craftsman's workshop with earthen floors and walls and tranformed it into something simple, yet grand. He added an additional floor and a rooftop that affords him fabulous views of the desert below.

One has to wonder how those glorious sunsets and glimpses of the Nile will manifest themselves in future pairs of exotic, colorful shoes. See the full story at ElleDecor.com.


What the beautiful people are saying...

I hope to go through this someday with my own resort/B&B.

Beautiful light in this shot!

Something to say, gorgeous?
