It is strange how we did not get the appeal of the Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ pumps, yet celebrities adored them.

We often referred to them as stripper shoes, but these popular pumps have treaded red carpets around the world and the streets of London, New York and LA.

Stars such as Victoria Beckham, Fan Bingbing and Alicia Keys have used the stacked platform to add a few precious inches to their petite frames.

Even supermodel Heidi Klum opted for the sky-high heels which gave her 5ft 9in frame an extra 6.5 inches.
