Christian Louboutin decided to surprise the fashion world by creating a shoe with an eight-inch stiletto in a ballet style. Judging by the picture available on the web there is hardly a girl who could really wear such shoes. Although Lady Gaga could get away with these...
Christian Louboutin, when interviewed by WWD, stated:
"I could not help being inspired by English National Ballet… after all… isn’t the classical dancing ballet slipper the ultimate heel? The heel which makes dancers closer than any other women to the sky, closer to heaven!”
Christian Louboutin designed these incredible shoes to auction off along with a number of other fashion items to raise funds for the English National Ballet. The silk Swarovski-encrusted heels are just one lot of many you might be interested in. Designers including Erdem, Giles Deacon, Moschino, Roksanda Ilincic and Julien Macdonald have made ballet-inspired pieces specially for the auction.
