reports that Christian Louboutin will be making pumps in Barbie's iconic Pantone 219 Pink. The pumps will debut at New York Fashion Week in February at a special Mattel runway show:
Fifty as-yet-undisclosed designers will produce Barbie-inspired outfits for the runway, and each of the 50 models will be wearing the pink Louboutins at the show.
"I guess I always had a little 'girlie side' who liked Barbie," Louboutin said.
I'm not sure if this means the trademark blood red Louboutin soles will be done in pink, or if the upper part of the shoe will be pink, while the sole remains red? Sort of like these $825 Louboutin C'est Moi shoe boots (note, these are not
the Barbie ones):
I like to think of that red sole as blood that's leaking out of a woman's tortured foot as she walks in the shoe. It's a good pairing, as Barbie's feet are already in the proper position for 5" stilettos.
