Nowadays it's great how we can honor and reward icons of all the domains without waiting. It's the case here of the potential Fashion Icon Christian Louboutin. Why potential? Because we have the immense luck that he's still alive. In world history it's a big advance, Johann Sebastian Bach was discovered almost a hundred after his death, and he lived in impoverished conditions. Today's icons are lucky too, because they are admirably recompensed, but they diserve it. The Louboutin company has now more than 20 years in activity and its history will be alive forever. To me, it is such an aspiration and a role model because he had an incredible idea, a lot of creative skills, and a mix of luck and very hard work. I don't like to call it luck because it's just the consequence of a very hard working spirit which allowed the reward. I first discovered those perfect shoes in my favorite TV show, Gossip Girl, which were Blair's praticly favorite shoes. After that I think I'm suffering what I call the 'Louboutin Fever' or the 'Red Bottom Fever' which consists to paranoid on the color of the bottom of high heels. When I see a pair of them I always search for the red 'touche' which allows me to know it is the special brand. I noticed them on videoclips (Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Christina Aguilera, Madonna...) on films (Burlesque, Morning Glory, The Proposal, Sex and the City...), catwalks, events, Awards... What made me happy was that now there are available for men too! What I only expect is that Mr. Louboutin will continue in the industry and he will surprise me with his talent and creativity.
Thank you for these years Christian Louboutin.
