Mattel is always looking for new inspirations to collaborate with Barbie having special edition collections in the past by the likes of the LA Lakers, Disney Princesses, and Twilight. This time around, they have tapped the designs by fashion designer Christian Louboutin for three unique looks.
The first look is Cat Burglar Barbie in a full, black catsuit, three pairs of sandals, and a pair of leopard print boots. The second look is Dolly Forever Barbie in a khaki mini with a gold belt, pink sunglasses, three pairs of sandals, and fuchsia, fringed boots. The last look is Anemone Barbie in a floor-length green and purple gown with four pairs of sandals.
All the shoes in the collection have the signature Christian Louboutin red soles available for pre-sale now at BarbieCollector.com and available now at Net-A-Porter.com for $150 each. From red carpet and photo shoots to rooftop mime sessions, I don’t think Barbie has ever looked so chic!

From foggy floating mountains and mice to an “Alice In Wonderland” gone blown scene, the fall/winter 2010/2011 campaign for Christian Louboutin is extremely eye-catching utilizing fairy tale-like themes. Not using a single model actually worked really well for them presenting the beautiful shoes in a way that is different from what we typically see. The shoes really take on their own characters and shine through in this campaign and I think it was done stunningly at the top of creativity.

The luxury women’s shoe designer Jimmy Choo is venturing away from their usual stilettos and releasing a sneaker collection this summer running for about $600 a pair. I think the tan/brown sneakers look a bit like Coach sneakers from afar, but the collection is very cohesive and has the potential to be the next Prada or Gucci sneakers. I typically like Jimmy Choo heels, but this sneaker collection is definitely not calling my name.

It seems that those stiff wooden clogs are back with a bang with Louis Vuitton and Chanel having shown them at their Spring 2010 presentations back in October. To me, clogs make me think of the Dutch in their bonnets and perfectly braided pigtails, but Chanel decided to adorn the clog with a studded platform adding their trademark camellia. Louis Vuitton decided to go in a more grotesque direction creating a tasseled loafer with a strangely positioned hell and a “decorative” ponytail resembling a horse tail.
