A book called « Les 20 ans », which celebrates the arrival of the Christian Louboutin 20th Anniversary will be released soon. In this book, Gareth Thomas (also known as Alfie) the most successful captain of the Wales national rugby team in recent times is modelling for his friend Christian Louboutin photographed by Philippe Garcia.
I learned recently but the story of Gareth Thomas is quite amazing. He becomes the first Welshman to win 100 international caps in rugby union, then in 2009 has come out as gay (he kept that that secret 35 years), in 2010 Mickey Rourke confirms interest in playing Gareth Thomas in a movie, and in 2011 he is retired from professional rugby. Now he is model for Chrisitan Louboutin.
The Alfie Flat (£640 / $995), new to Louboutin this year was inspired by the Welsh rugby star Gareth Thomas.
