Truly Torturous Toe Shoes

We’re all for wearing completely unreasonable and painful shoes, but en pointe Louboutins? No. No no no. Louboutin made them to benefit the English National Ballet — they’ll be auctioned off in a charity auction. Said designer Christian Louboutin: “Isn’t the classical dancing ballet slipper the ultimate heel? The heel which makes dancers closer than any other women to the sky, closer to heaven.” Kind of “Black Swan”-ish, no? [Grazia Fashion] Keep reading »

Runway To Retail: The Most Fabulous Fur Booties

We are loving the major fall trend of fur booties. Whether real or faux, designers of all levels have added fuzzy boots to their fall lineup. We’ve been obsessing over the Christian Louboutin “Toundra” fur bootie for some time now, so when we discovered Forever 21’s faux fur pair, we could barely contain our excitement. What makes this version so great is the color and texture of the faux fur as well as the details it has taken from its higher priced partner: strap and buckle details, the chunky platform pointy toe, and a great shaped sexy heel. A fantastic take on a high-end look. So, tell us — would you wear this trend or do you think it’s one to be left to the Eskimos? [1.

Ask The Man Panel: Christian Louboutin’s $6,000 Marie Antoinette Heels

I am endlessly entertained by the divides between men and women when it comes to fashion: the differing opinions on the definition of “expensive,” the controversy over red lipstick (is it glamorous or reminiscent of the Joker?), the thousands of times throughout history that women have asked, “Honey, what do you think of this dress?” only to be met with a vacant stare.

So we decided to start a new feature where we round up a few dudes and ask for their honest opinion on an outrageous clothing item, accessory, or fashion trend. Christian Louboutin’s limited-edition Marie Antoinette heels seemed like the perfect first candidate. These blindingly bright and ornately embroidered peep-toe pumps retail for $6,295. Only 36 pairs were made. I think they’re amazing. My best friend thinks they’re ridiculous. Here’s what the guys had to say … Keep reading »

Trashy Or Sneaky-Smart: Red Sole-ing Your Pumps À La Louboutin?

Buying a knock-off is one thing … but making your own knock-off? Try searching for “Louboutin red soles” on eBay, and you’ll find a couple dozen auctions for red adhesive soles in the style of the classic Christian Louboutin touch. Some are being marketed as a product to use as protection for your real Loubs, but it’s also a sneaky way to make your pumps look like the real thing. Would you do this to your shoes? Think it’s a clever or stupid idea? [eBay] Keep reading »

And The Prize Goes To … The Best Positive Barbie Story

Last week, we asked you to tell us how Barbie positively affected your dreams and goals. And despite what some people claim, those of you who really loved Barbie didn’t turn out to be vapid, plastic surgery-obsessed bimbos. But only one person could win the limited edition Anemone Barbie by Christian Louboutin. And the winner is … Yankee in the South for this comment:

“Barbie helped make me the woman I am today! But, I can’t think of Barbie, without thinking of my Mom. She worked to support our family, and wasn’t home a lot. Barbie was all the things my mom was to me – a professional, beautiful working woman. We didn’t have a lot of extra money, and so I didn’t have the big pink house, or the snazzy convertable. What I did have, were outfits that my mom and I made together on her days off (does anyone else remember those McCall’s Barbie patterns?); and the highrise that we put together from boxes – decorated with wallpaper samples Mom collected for me, and handcrocheted rugs she taught me to make. My imagination and sense of style (as well as my crafting and sewing skills) all came from those precious times that my Mom spent with me, and the hours of play I had with Barbie and the world we created for her in my bedroom.”
