Ok, so I am not loving what Christian Louboutin said about Barbie’s “fat ankles”, but I love the idea of the Louboutin designed collection of shoes for the doll! According to WWD, the collection consists of three dolls packaged in Louboutin shoe boxes, that come with four pairs of Barbie-size Louboutin heels. The three dolls will be released separately, the first to release in December, is the jewel thief-themed Barbie; in February, a safari-themed Barbie, and for May, Louboutin designed a Barbie that goes to the Cannes Film Festival. The dolls retail for $150 each and will be sold at BarbieCollector.com and at Net-a-porter.com, and in September, both sites also will offer a Christian Louboutin Barbie shoe collection of 12 pairs for $40 a set.
I haven’t played with Barbies for many years now, but I really like the jewel-thief Barbie. Plus, it looks like Louboutin had a great time at this shoot. Creative, no? And as a little spoiler, just wanted to let you guys know that this is not the last you’ll hear about Barbies on this site! Something exciting is happening tomorrow! Stay tuned!
