On February 2nd 2012, Bergdorf Goodman was the place to be… It was a spectacular event, but not just any spectacular event… Walking in, anyone could spot what this event was about… A sea of red soles filled the room… and the man of the hour walked in.. Monseiur Louboutin.

    Christian Louboutin is known for his out-of-this-word designs, and signature Red Soles.. Now, on his 20 year anniversary, he’s published a book of his most extravagant over the top designs! He’s become a staple in the fashion industry!

Lately, Christian Louboutin has been making the news, but not for his brilliant shoes, Mr.Louboutin does claim that his red soles are a trademark and have been his idea entirely. I love Louboutins, and am a proud owner of about 15 pairs, but the reality is, the Red Outer Sole has been done many many times before. Before Monseiur Louboutin requested a US Trademark on his red sole, during the Reign of Luis XIV, red sole shoes were worn by aristocratic men.  Mr.Louboutin has been around for 20 years, but YSL had manufactured red sole shoes in the 1970s.

Always.” Later in the evening, the belle of the BG ball was spotted shimmying in a corner, the glittery bits of confetti glinting off her gams. 

So much attention was being paid to the pieds, it felt apropos to delve into matters of the soul. “My soul is solar, because I was born from the light,” Louboutin said.  Mickey Boardman, clad in a sparkly Suno top for the occasion, simply had to snag some mid-shindig shut-eye to pull up his soulful hue. When I close my eyes, I see icy blue—an inviting blue like the Caribbean, not stay-away-from-me glacier blue!” Fargo’s soul: red, obviously. As for Glenn O’Brien? “Ultraviolet, because it’s invisible.” …Click Here to Read Entire Story via FashionWeekDaily
