Christian Louboutin has customised 3 dolls, inspired by Nefertiti and Marilyn Monroe, which feature a new terracotta tan skin tone, and having never before experienced the delights of such gravity-defying heels, a new in-step to enable her to take giant Louboutin steps for doll-kind.
However, a limited edition Christian Louboutin Barbie doesn’t end there; 4 Barbie-sized pairs of shoes accompany each doll, each in their very own Louboutin shoe boxes, in which delicate tissue paper reveals such miniature delights as lovingly crafted long leopard skin Christian Louboutin boots. The Christian Louboutin Barbie doll with a jewellery thief theme (as seen above), together with the calendar, launches December 2009 at Net-a-porter.
Fall fashions have poured into the stores & I’m drooling already for my favourite season of clothing!!
Chunky sweaters, leggings & boots, jewel-toned everything ~ fall season-wear has such decadent, luxurious, rich, warming density to it;
I would forever be happy buried under a pile of cable-knits and leathers.

Now on view at the Galerie du Passage in Paris is a collaborative show of foot fetish artworks created by David Lynch and Christian Louboutin. The two men came together to create extreme footwear manufactured by Louboutin and photographed by Lynch. The objects include conjoined twin shoes, ballerina heels, and 10-inch stilettos.
The designer has an atelier where the one-of-a-kind shoes are created. With practicality and comfort out the window, Louboutin has pushed the designs to their limits: think 26cms heels, spikes on the inside and sole of the shoe, and Siamese heels (two shoes fused at the heel).
The idea is that the shoe becomes a cult object, transcending the most beautiful part of the shoe and/or foot. Louboutin pinpoints “The Siamese shoe” as his favourite, “For me the shoe and the picture together become very close to Twin Peaks.”
