Shoe of the Moment: Christian Louboutin Lace-Up Ankle Boots


Though I am generally not a fan of pointy toed shoes, I must say I really do love Christian Louboutin’s Mado Leather Lace-Up Ankle Boots ($1,595).

I first spotted them on Toni Braxton, who paired them with a chocolate leather sheath while attending the Walk of Fame Ceremony for producer Babyface.

The following day Ciara was seen pairing them with an Lucky Rose Sweater Dress while dining out with new friend Lily Collins.

Both women wear them well, but I admit to being a bit more partial to Toni’s look. Try as I might, I couldn’t find out who made her dress, but she is looking all kinds of fabulous in it.

Nude Heels for Dark Skin Tones

NUDE HEELS FOR EVERY SKIN TONE

If you are a Brown Sista who has ever shopped for nude heels, then you know what a truly difficult task that can be.

Shoe designer Christian Louboutin has acknowledged the problem as well and come up with a solution: a capsule collection he calls The Shades.

Starting this fall, five classic Louboutin styles will be re-imagined in shades ranging from fair bisk to a chestnut brown.

According to Louboutin, the new shades aim to “closely match the actual color of the customer’s skin tone” and in doing so will “stretch the silhouette and give the appearance of longer legs.”

And just in case you are confused about which color is right for you, Louboutin has created an app for that.

Just snap a pic of your leg and the app will match your skin tone to the right Louboutin shade.

Neat, huh?

Rihanna Wears Her Own Brand

Rihanna’s days of making other designers rich may soon be coming to an end. The 25-year old pop diva has hung up her haute couture duds and has instead been seen jet setting across the globe in her own signature wears.

As previously reported, RiRi teamed up with River Island to launch her own capsule collection with the brand, and is presently gearing up for the September 12th release of her fall line.

Earlier this week Rihanna was seen sporting one of her own designs, a black and white print bodycon dress, which she paired with snakeskin stilettos from Roberto Cavalli, and her now signature RiRi Woo Lipstick by MAC.

Rihanna’s lawsuit against Topshop for misappropriating her image on a line of t-shirts hasn’t stopped other Hollywood heavyweights from rocking the fashions of the retail giant.

Ciara is a longtime fan of the clothier, and wore one of their designs while performing in Vegas over the weekend.

The really cool part is that CiCi’s ensemble is totally is affordable, and will run you less than $100 should you choose to cop the look for yourself.

Ciara performed at Ditch Fridays at the Palms Hotel & Casiono Resort wearing a “Stars Motel Bodysuit” for $36 and matching “Big Wheel Printed Tube Skirt” for $56.

CiCi topped off her ensemble with white Christian Louboutin stiletto heels and silver bangles by Celine.
