I am just back from my holiday vacation – had a fabulous time. I need to get unburied, but I just had to post this today as a French Friday!
And I am going to take it directly from the France Today article where it was posted:
“France’s foremost designer of haute heels, Christian Louboutin, in partnership with Piper Heidsieck champagne, has revived a decadent 19th-century Russian tradition whereby noble admirers would drink from the demi-pointe slippers of their favorite ballerinas-a custom transplanted to Paris and continued by the saucy showgirls at the Folies Bergères. Just in time for the holidays, Louboutin has designed a black crystal stiletto with a clear, 6-inch cut-crystal heel-and his signature red sole, of course.
