The Christian Louboutin Barbie
He may have said that Barbie has fat ankles but Christian Louboutin didn’t let that stop him. The shoe designer simply reshaped them and moved on to making the 50-year-old doll his muse and inspiration. Creating his own Barbie, Christian Louboutin turned her into a ‘Cat Burglar’ in head-to-toe vinyl and has four pairs of Christian Louboutin heels to call her own.
“Barbie is such an icon; how could I resist such a collaboration?” said Christian Louboutin.
To celebrate the launch of the Christian Louboutin Barbie on Net-A-Poter, the pair went on a journey around Paris that was documented for an official Christian Louboutin and Barbie calendar entitled ‘A Year in Paris’ where the pair was photographed around Paris together getting up to all kinds of mischief.
Both the ‘A Year in Paris’ calendar and Christian Louboutin Cat Burgular Barbie are available on Net-A-Porter.com now with a flash slide show giving us a preview of the calendar. Unfortunately the calender comes with the £100 collectors Barbie, so the slide show (or our images below) may have to suffice.
UPDATE: The Christian Louboutin Barbie sold out within 24 hours on Net-A-Porter.com. You’ll have to wait until next year when the safari, showgirl and Cannes Film Festival themed Louboutin Barbies are released to score yourself one of these collectables.
