Holy goodness! Look at these staggering 8-inch heel Christian Louboutin designed for the English National Ballet–inspired by ballerina toe shoes auctioned off at the ballet’s “Summer Party” on Wednesday in London. Not sure how many of us could walk in them, but you can’t argue with how spectacular they are.
Agent Provocateur, Moschino, Erdem and seven other designers joined Louboutin in donating couture items to help raise money for the world-renowned dance company. While couture tutus are never going to be anything but insanely beautiful, it’s Louboutin’s jaw-dropping ballet heels that really stand, um, a foot above the rest.
Louboutin reasoned,”“I could not help being inspired by English National Ballet… after all…isn’t the classical dancing ballet slipper the ultimate heel? The heel which makes dancers closer than any other women to the sky, closer to heaven!”.”
