Arts About Christian Louboutin

Does Barbie have 'cankles'? According to Christian Louboutin, vertiginous shoe designer and unholy scourge of people who happen to own feet, yes, she does. The story broke a couple of weeks ago and we dismissed it as a storm in a doll-sized teacup, but now we've had a rethink christian louboutin uk. Just because we preferred My Little Pony, it doesn't mean we shouldn't leap to Barbie's defence in this controversial issue. Poor old Barbie. In the past she's been attacked for many reasons: too thin and ill-proportioned (we were too busy poking at the blank canvas of her nether regions and melting her hair to notice), not aspirational enough for young malleable minds (seriously? These doubters need to check out Wonder Woman Barbie louboutin shoes sale!), and not representative of all the world's people (we say don't forget Sumatra-Indonesia Barbie), among other things. It's true that 44 years ago Barbie wasn't quite so right-on. In 1965, Slumber Party Barbie was sold with a leaflet entitled How to lose weight, that told young girls 'not to eat'. Even today, a quick look at Mattel's website - the toy company that created Barbie - reveals a doll that looks suspiciously like Amy Winehouse - not the greatest role model for a girl cheap louboutin shoes. But nothing, NOTHING Barbie has done deserves Christian Louboutin's slur on her physique. According to the industry magazine Womenswear Daily, Mattel has partnered with Louboutin, making him Barbie's 'godfather' for the next year. The shoe designer will redesign her wardrobe and "art direct her in different lifelike situations"Christian Louboutin, whatever that means. The offending statement came when Christian Louboutin talked about customizing his doll: "She needed great shoes, a thinner ankle and, to me, as I'm obsessed with feet, a foot more curved," the designer said. Clarifying his point later, Louboutin explained that he was only thinking about the technical aspects of shoemaking. "Barbie's foot has always been shaped less 'curvy' than the rest of her perfect body," he said. "I just added my little science to Barbie and I've been proud to serve her. But fat ankles she didn't have, she just could have had thinner ankles. That's all." .
