So even plastic dolls can not stay away from Louboutin and his killer heels. Mattel (creator of Barbie) decided it was the one accessory missing from her perfect plastic lifestyle! Even though Barbie has a shoe closet every real life girl could easily envy (over 1 billion shoes) it seemed that it was not fulfilled until a pair of Louboutin’s took pride place within it.
Christian Louboutin was asked to kindly serve Barbie as her Godfather for one year. Including rethinking her physical attributes and wardrobe. All whilst documenting their enjoyment in the shape of a diary, filled with images of their time spent together in Paris.
Louboutin’s three customized dolls, are inspired by Nefertiti and Marilyn Monroe, and using his newly gained Goddaughter as a muse he suggests:
“She needed great shoes, a thinner ankle and, to me, as I’m obsessed with feet, a foot more curved.”
The three dolls, packaged in Louboutin shoe boxes, each come with four pairs of Barbie-size Louboutin heels.The $150 dolls will be sold through BarbieCollector.com and at Net-a-porter.com, which is Mattel’s exclusive partner for this project and will be selling dolls for the first time. In September, both sites also will offer a Christian Louboutin Barbie shoe collection of 12 pairs for $40 a set.
If only we all had feet small enough to bag ourselves 12 pairs of Louboutin’s for just $40!
