Fete for footwear favorite Christian Louboutin

(Michael Blanchard for The Boston Globe)

Admirers of Christian Louboutin got an audience with the celebrated shoe designer Tuesday at Saks Fifth Avenue at the Pru. Louboutin was in Boston on the occasion of his 20th anniversary, and many of his designs — from stilettos and lace-up boots to studded sneakers and bejeweled pumps — were on display. The crowd included Ashley Bernon, Corinne Grousbeck, Krista Ference, Anna Welker, Jill Medvedow, Courtney Forrester, and Elena Matlack.
