Celebrities Love….Christian Louboutin ‘Bis Un Bout’ Pumps

The Christian Louboutin Bis Un Bout pumps made their red-carpet debut back in February when both Rihanna and Alicia Keys wore them on the red carpet for the 2012 Grammy Awards.

Since then they have become hot property, selling out the second they hit boutiques and virtual shelves around the world.

Many of you have likened them to stripper shoes because of the PVC patent leather combo, but this hasn’t stopped Naya Rivera, Brooklyn Decker, La La Vasquez, Beyonce Knowles, Solange Knowles, Elle MacPherson, Kristen Stewart, Angie Harmon, Lea Michele and Emma Stone wearing them.

In some instances (Brooklyn and Emma) in more than one colour.

The shoes are very versatile, having been worn with everything from sexy gowns to jeans and a tee.

Christian Louboutin Unveils The Cinderella Shoe

As young girls we all wanted to have that Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo Cinderella moment. Well, thanks to Christian Louboutin, that dream could very well come true.

Yesterday I was invited to the unveiling of the modern-day version of Cinderella’s iconic glass slippers in collaboration with Disney (prior to the Cinderella Blu-Ray release on October 2).

The butterfly-accented lace heels with Swarovski crystal embellishment and the designer’s signature sole is even more stunning in reality.

In the spirit of the fairy tale, one lucky US fan will have the chance to win a free pair of the limited edition Cinderella heels. Details to follow.

Like the Christian Louboutin ‘Marie Antoinette’ heels, only 20 pairs of the Cinderella heels will be produced with one pair most definitely going to Dita von Teese and the butterfly loving Mariah Carey.

The Christian Louboutin 20th Anniversary Capsule Collection

Today Christian Louboutin announced the launch of their 20th anniversary Capsule Collection.

The red-sole heels have become the must-have footwear brand.

It would be easier to count the celebrities who haven’t been seen sporting his red soles on the red carpet, but his biggest fans are Blake Lively, Dita Von Teese, Victoria Beckham and Rihanna.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary milestone the designer created a capsule collection of twenty styles of shoes and six bags, which I was lucky enough to view last week.

These exclusive sketches give you a sneak preview, but if you want to view the full collection check out the Christian Louboutin Facebook page.

On the page you’ll be able to sign up to receive an email invitation to shop the collection when it becomes available online.

UK and European readers need not worry because Christian Louboutin will be opening a UK and European online boutique very soon.

On Monday, 27th February, Selfridges will be launching a pop-up store where you will be able to purchase this exciting capsule collection.

For those who do not live in Europe, Canada or the US, your chance to shop this capsule collection will come in March, when the collection will be available from Christian Louboutin boutiques.

The capsule collection will be limited so make sure you visit the Christian Louboutin facebook page for more info.

Christian Louboutin vs. Topshop

Whilst shopping in Brent Cross during the holidays I was shocked to see these Topshop Supreme Extreme platform heels.

The 6.5 inch heels are clearly inspired by the Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ pumps which were the celebrity shoe of 2011, as they were much loved by Victoria Beckham, Lady Gaga and Fan Bingbing.

Now you can try your hand at navigating the streets in these scary looking pumps.

The Daffodile’s would set you back $1,095, but the Supreme Extreme platform pumps only cost $176 from Topshop US and £88 from Topshop International.

I look these pumps and immediately picture long queues at A&E for ankle related injuries.

Would you buy these heels?

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Loves Her Christian Louboutin Pigalle Plato Pumps

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is having an amazing run on the red carpet during her “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon” promo tour.

Whilst she’s given us backless, strapless and halter gowns with some thigh-high splits, plus chic separates and sexy day dresses, the one thing that’s been consistent is her love for her nude Christian Louboutin Pigalle Plato pumps.

She most recently wore them to the New York Premiere, but I she’s worn them on 4 other occasions.

The love started at the 2011 Glamour Women of the Year Awards when she paired the pumps with her Stella McCartney dress.

Whilst the pumps work with many different styles and looks, their most recent appearance didn’t quite work for me.

You can find these pumps at Browns Fashion.
