Finding a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes for less than $200 rarely happens outside of La La Land. But fashionistas around the world can stop dreaming now that Mattel has released its third Barbie doll designed by Louboutin. Anemone Barbie is red carpet-ready in a lime green and lavender gown and sparkly bracelet. And, of course, she wears fabulous shoes. This Barbie indulges her footwear fetish by traveling with three additional pairs of Louboutins, each in a signature red dust bag. You might not be able to wear these miniatures yourself, but that doesn’t mean you can’t admire their beauty. [$150, Net-A-Porter.com]

Everyone knows that buying fake products contributes to terrible working conditions and child labor, but for some reason, New York City’s Canal Street is still full of tourists, desperate for a bad Louis Vuitton or Coach knockoff.

Jennifer Love Hewitt revealed the sexy item (well, actually items) she couldn’t live without. “Christian Louboutin — I’d wear them and nothing else, if I wouldn’t get arrested [for it],” she said to OK!. I’m totally feeling her on this. The one item I wouldn’t be able to live without would also be a pair of high heels, but I’d have a tough time picking only one pair. I’d have no problem going naked (around my apartment), but I’d definitely switch up my footwear at least once a day. What’s the one item of clothing you need in your life? Keep reading »
Christian Louboutin‘s shoe designs are so lust-worthy that the man could put his stilettos in a dumpster, take a pic, and we’d still coo over the red-soled pumps.
