Tying the knot in Louboutin
I’m a sucker for designer shoes. And although I can’t always afford to splurge on them, I know I’ll be following my heart and going designer on my wedding day. Lately, I’ve been dreaming about taking my walk down the aisle in a pair of the red-soled shoes that Christian Louboutin is famous for.
Even though the traditional wisdom is to make sure you’re wearing something blue on your wedding day, I think ‘something red’ makes an even more dramatic statement. And it must be the same for luxury French designer, Christian Louboutin, who uses the once overlooked sole of the shoe to add a splash of red. They’ve now become a status symbol and are without a doubt the most popular shoes in Hollywood. Even Oprah donned a pair of the designer’s ultra-high stilettos for this month’s cover of O, The Oprah Magazine.
Brides-to-be choose Louboutin
Louboutin offers a wide collection of shoes for men and women that are bound to make any shoe fanatic fall in love, and their bridal collection is no exception. From glamorous, crystal encrusted platform heels to strappy stilettos, this designer has a style to suit every bride. There are even flats for those who want comfort without sacrificing fashion. Like all luxury designers, these are not for brides on a budget. But if you’re like me and looking to splurge on your wedding day, I’d recommend the crystal covered ‘Fifi Strass Veau Velours Burma’ stiletto or the ‘Vendome Sling Crepe Satin’ peep-toe sling back for a more classic look.
Time to shop!
If you’re pressed for time, you can check out the bridal collection at the Louboutin online boutique. Or, if you want to see the entire collection in person, check out one of the five stores in London featuring women’s footwear.
Consider putting your best, red-soled, foot forward on your wedding day. It only happens once so why not feel like a star?
