Today was supposed to be all about Rabens Saloner, however, appointments ran late and to shoot the many different looks would be a bit much at this late hour…so it turns out tomorrow is the day;)
As for now, it’s all about Christian Louboutin nail colour, which has probably been blogged about a gazillion times by now. There has been quite the buzz surrounding this new addition to the Louboutin family, primarily because of the high price point attached. Of course, price is relative, however, for the average person $50 is a slight splurge for nail colour. I finally put it to the test today, and the results were super pleasing. First, the colour selection is amazing, the consistency is highly-pigmented, the dry time is incredibly fast, the bottle is gorgeous, it gives a high shine, the amount of polish in the bottle is astounding and the verdict is still out on the staying power.
However, even without considering how the polish wears, I still give it high marks…the quality is like none I’ve experienced.
I used Wherever, a vivid, blue shade, and would definitely spend $50 on another. As far as I can tell; it’s a dream nail product. Furthermore, if I add up all the OPI and Butter polish I’ve accumulated over just the past month, the total would far exceed the price of this far superiour Louboutin polish…Christian has done it again!
Christian Louboutin nail colours are available at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Sephora stores.
Although we may never see the pearly whites of this fashionista, there is no doubt Victoria Beckham consistently serves up serious style. She has an eye for the most impeccable tailoring, which is apparent whether she is wearing her own Victoria Beckham label or any other designer. She looks stunning in this navy and black strapless colour block dress from her Victoria Beckham Spring 2012 collection with pointy toe Christian Louboutins.
As if Christian Louboutin has not made enough of a niche for himself in the world of fashion, he seems to have decided beauty, clad on the feet of women all over the globe, is not enough. Christian Louboutin is set to launch a cosmetic beauty line in 2013, what this will entail specifically, is mum at the moment. However, it is probably safe to assume a signature red lip colour and nail polish, matching his iconic red soles, will be among the offerings.
Batallure Beauty, integral in the development of Abercrombie & Fitch, Macy’s, Marchesa and Sephora, to name a few, is partnering with Christian Louboutin’s luxury French company to achieve this end. The name Christian Louboutin is synonymous with luxury, style and prestige, there is no doubt this standard will need to segue seamlessly into his cosmetics line as well, if he expects to attract the same clientele. This is Christian Louboutin’s first attempt to ‘wow’ us with cosmetics, we’ll soon find out if women are as obsessed with showcasing this label in their makeup cases and on vanities, as they are on their feet.
Brooke Stein looks fabulous, streamlined and current in this cobalt blue Topshop jumper and green J. Crew coat, perfect for the chilly evenings we have year around here in Southern California. The mix of these two colours makes for a lovely palette, and the nude Christian Louboutin shoes are perfect for keeping this look simple by not introducing a third colour.

So I’m a bit obsessed with mixing patterns, and just adore this eclectic look on Celia Smith, who achieved it my pairing a Boxing Kitten blouse & skirt with Christian Louboutin shoes. Photo: Hannah Saleh
