Turns out Barbie has a French godfather, who hearts sexy shoes and dramatic fashion.
Would u like to guess who that would be?
Who else but Christian Louboutin.
Christian Louboutin designed THREE barbie dolls of which the first became available on Net-A-Porter on December 4th, and has already sold out!
Press release on stylist.com reads:
Christian Louboutin Barbie Sells Out in One Day on Net-A-Porter
Oh, what a girl won't do to snag a pair of Louboutins -- even if they're completely unwearable -- for under $200!
While the first Barbie by Christian Louboutin became available on Net-A-Porter just yesterday (Dec. 4), alas, it has already sold out!
Now, shoe fiends coveting the $150 limited edition 'Cat Burglar' Barbie will have to add it to their Net-A-Porter 'wish list' in order to be notified when the dolls are back in stock.
One look at the fiery-haired Barbie and we can pretty much understand why she flew off the virtual shelves so quickly. The mini fashionista not only comes wearing a smokin' second skin catsuit, but with four drool-worthy pairs of mini Louboutins, too.
The pint-sized, red-soled wonder includes the strappy "Differa" sandal (that seemingly fit over Barbie's "too fat" ankles -- Louboutin's words, not ours!), sleek "Miss" ankle boots, bright pink "Claudia" peep-toes and leopard print "Altameche" knee-high boots -- along with tiny Louboutin boxes and bags to hold each, plus Barbie and Louboutin's Paris travel journal. Swoon.
While new Louboutin Barbies will be released in 2010 -- with safari, showgirl and Cannes Film Festival themes -- let this story be a lesson to all the procrastinators out there (and yes, we sadly fall into that category, as well).
In the meantime, check out what Barbie herself thinks about the Louboutin makeover in StyleList's exclusive interview with the world's most famous blonde.
