Christian Louboutin Marie Antoinette Sky High Heels

Christian Louboutin Marie Antoinette Heels

One of my “oldie but goodie” films is “Marie Antoinette” released in 2006 starring Kirsten Duns (yes it got 54% on rotten tomatoes, so what?!?!?! 😂). The costumes were out of this world, and the hair were larger than the world. In 2009, Louboutin partnered with world-renowned embroiderer Jean-Francois Lesage to create a very limited-edition shoe collection. Only 36 pairs of these were ever made, in three colors, Inspired by Marie herself. Each pair was stamped with a limited-edition number, sold in a specially created box, and retailed for $6,295. Sigh. A girl can dream. 💁🏻‍♀️ What is also interesting is even though it is thought that Marie Antoinette was a shoe hound. It turns out that that bit is actually untrue. Versailles, for all its decadence, was a very dirty place, filled with animals and excrement. Instead of cleaning their shoes, the royals and aristocrats would throw them out every few days. Well, I guess that IS about 365 shoes a year.
