“Lu-Bu-Tahn”: J. Lo’s Lesson In Fashion Phonetics

Even luxury label-wearing celebs need a little FSL (Fashion as a Second Language). Apparently, Jennifer Lopez called Christian Louboutin to make sure she was pronouncing his name right in her new single, “Louboutins.” Says the shoe designer:

“But of course, in America the public pronounces my name in like a million different ways. So…

Christian Louboutin Weirdly Obsessed With Cankles

Shoe god Christian Louboutin has a major erm, bone to pick with ankles. More specifically, he hates cankles. Like as in he really can’t shut up about how much he detests them. The designer notoriously spoke out about Barbie’s “fat ankles” recently, and now the iconic designer can’t keep quiet, as he’s back on the…

Quotable: About Those Shoes You’re Wearing …

“I prefer shoes that undress to shoes that dress. A successful shoe is a shoe that accentuates nudity. The woman remains entirely nude when she wears those shoes. The shoe becomes the privilege of nudity … If you are very chic you might not need an extra drop of chicness, so you go for the…

Well, now we know what’s in the closet of the 13-year-old celebuspawn, thanks to the tell-tale red soles of Christian Louboutin shoes, which tend to retail at about $600 per pair. Here, Lourdes wa…

Some Designers Really Hate Fat Women (Like Barbie!)

It’s all about change in the fashion world right now — designers are livestreaming their runway shows (or trying anyway), shoppers can snap up fall Chloe bags on their iPhones, and magazines like Glamour and Marie Claire are making an effort to include plus-size women in their formerly stick-thin pages.

Carrie Bradshaw Gives Up Her Manolos!

Watch out Manolo Blahnik. You’ve been put back on the shelf.

While Carrie Bradshaw originally gave the heels their fame with her shoe obsession and fashion sense, it seem she’s moved on. In the upcoming “Sex and the City” sequel, Sarah Jessica Parker’s character has given up fawning over Manolos in favor of…

You Gotta Watch This Totally Psycho Christian Louboutin Video

God we love the odd fashion video. Usually, they’re pretty artsy and avant-garde, but somehow we missed the video that everyone’s favorite shoe designer made for the opening of his new Rodeo Drive store earlier this month. It’s a pretty straightforward (not to mention totally entertaining) take on Hitchcock’s “Psycho,” ahem, until it…

Christian Louboutin Wants To Get You Drunk

Christian Louboutin sure knows his customer. First he gave women bitchy red-soled stilettos that practically beg to be taken out for a night on the town. Now he’s providing the booze. Last night, the designer launched his very own champagne in collaboration with Piper-Heidsieck, at, according to his press agent anyway, “an exclusive private pre…

A woman in England is handing out fliers, questioning residents, putting up “lost” posters, and looking high and low in a desperate search for her precious missing…leopard print pump.

Random Email From A Polite Craigslist Perv

I recently posted an ad on Craiglist selling a beautiful, twice-worn pair of Christian Louboutin pumps that my ex gave me as a gift. (I’m selling them because they pinch my feet and, frankly, are just a reminder of our failed relationship, where he was willing to shell out the big bucks, but not emotional…

Christian Louboutin To Make Barbie Shoes For Her 50th Birthday

As you know, Barbie’s turning 50 next year, but don’t worry, she isn’t going to start wearing orthopedic shoes any time soon.

Women Want More Than Rich Men In 2008

Even though “marrying a wealthy man” came in fourth on a poll of what women want for 2008, The Sun (U.K.) used the headline, “Women wish for Mr. Rich” to tout the story. That makes it seem like all we want in life is someone who will pay for us to have nice things, like…
