Christian Louboutin “Les 20 Ans”

“Women’s relationship to shoes is similar to women’s relationship to men; we can’t live without them but living with them is so painful!”

– Rossy de Palma

A couple of weeks ago I received possibly the most beautiful press kit in the history of the world! It was for Christian Louboutin “20 ans”, a new book of photography which documents the master shoemaker’s career. To accompany this a video was created showing Louboutin at work photographing some of his muses for the book. Those in the video include actress Kristin Scott Thomas, neo burlesque queen Dita von Teese, chanteuse and showgirl Arielle Dombasle, actress Rossy de Palma, singer Mika and rugby player Gareth Thomas. The trailer is below and you can watch the full thing on the official Louboutin site here.

The book contains some stunning images and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. You can pre-order it on Amazon here. I reckon it might make a great Christmas Stocking Filler for the shoe fiend in your life too!
