Christian Louboutin is a French high-end fashion designer. I’m sure it is almost every girls dream to some day own at least a pair of the signature Christian Louboutin stiletto heels with red-lacquered soles.
In the film Christian Louboutin: Top of the Heels there’s a lot of interesting information about the designer and the history behind his company. It’s also explained how Christian Louboutin came up with the idea of making shoes with red-lacquered soles: when the shoes that he previously sketched were actually made and given to Christian, he could tell that they look much better in his drawings rather than in real life but couldn’t figure out why. After realizing that the soles in the drawn shoes were not black, the designer saw his colleague painting her nails in the same room as him. Christian then took the nail polish that happened to be red, painted the sole of the shoe and thought that it looked perfect.
I highly suggest to watch the film to anyone who is interested in Christian Louboutin and the history behind the iconic red-soled shoes.
