christian louboutin.

how many of you knew christian louboutin way before j started rhyming about the red bottoms? i didn't. i confess. and out of curiousity i wanted to know who this man was that had women across the world contributing to the economy by investing in his shoes.

i googled him of course and found out he's pretty young. born in paris in 1963, the french shoe designer was inspired to become a shoe designer by the costumes that the nightclub showgirls would wear.

and why the red bottoms? reportedly, he first planned to use different colors for the soles but watched an assistant paint her nails red and boom - red it was. we creative types are inspired by just about anything!
