Christian Louboutin Speaks!

Manolo says, from our friends at NET-A-PORTER (who provided us with the delightful Giuseppe Zanotti interview) comes this most amusing interview with Christian Louboutin.

The first thing I really wanted to do was to design shoes for showgirls, because at the end of the day, you know, a showgirl is…is like a bird of paradise. It’s a woman, but it’s a representation of a bird, basically.

At the end of my school, I did a big internship at Folies Bergère, and it was very interesting because, you know, if you like high heels, the showgirls are the best to actually show how to walk, how to manage, how to practice, but also they know great tricks about things, because not only they need to look, and to be good, but also they have to not to think about it. So, it has to be very comfortable, they don’t have to think about their feet. And, you know, at the first moment when I really thought up this stupid sentence, which is ‘suffering to be beautiful’, doesn’t work. You know, showgirls cannot suffer to be beautiful.

The Folies Bergère has interns?

Of the course, you would be like the statuesque and colorful Bird of Paradise in these Christian Louboutin Ulona 140 platform sandals

Although it would likely take several months of interning at the Folies Bergère to walk properly in them.

    no wonder his shoes are ridiculous and unwearable.

    well, the shoes might be unwearable, but I like them nevertheless.

    The Folies Bergère! That explains so much. As does the statement about a showgirl being a bird of paradise.

    Thank you for the link to that delightful interview. Now as I dress in the morning, I shall decide if I want to be strong or fragile, dressed or undressed. And I will not accept shoes that make me suffer.

    High heels for everyone!!
