Swizz Beatz dropped by the MTV2 Sucker Free studios this week to talk fashion with host DJ Envy, where Swizz confirmed his appreciation for high-fashion accessories. Aside from sitting on the design board of Swiss watch company Audemars Piguet, he also has a steady collaboration with French luxury shoe designer Christian Louboutin. "That's like a brother from another mother," Swizz says of Louboutin. "We met two years ago — now it was on my friends boat. And he was sitting there and he was chilling, and I'm thinking it was going to be a 10-minute conversation and it turned into being six hours. We came up with concepts right there." The most famous of the collaborative designs are the spiky loafers, lace-ups, and sneakers, which have landed on everyone from Kanye West to Diddy to Chad Ochocinco. And Swizz is still working with Louboutin. "Now we're leading to a lot of different things," Swizz said. "Now, it's showtime."

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
