Christian Louboutin to Design Barbie Shoes


The much-loved Barbie doll is turning 50 years old next year (must be all the plastic in her face keeping her so young looking), and to celebrate, 50 designers were selected to create outfits for a special runway show that Mattel is hosting in February at New York fashion week. We'll have to wait to hear who the designers are, but WWD reports that Christian Louboutin will provide the shoes for all 50 models - each done in Barbie Pantone 219 Pink (that shade we usually try to avoid when doing pinks. Let's leave it Barbie to rock it).

"I guess I always had a little 'girlie side' who liked Barbie," Louboutin said. "Barbie needs to wear great shoes because every girl needs to wear great shoes." Indeed.
