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!”.”
What do you think? I’m hoping Sharon Davis or Alice Mei will do a number in them. :D Would you even try to walk in something like this?
I love this girl! I’ve been watching her videos for a bit, and this is definitely an easier one, but still great to keep in mind. That being said, this is more of a long hair style. I bet you could do something similar with medium length hair, it just might not be as easy.
Enjoy the Japanese!!!!
I love wearing a bun. As a kid, I used to associate “buns” with ballerinas and since I was a tomboy, I wanted nothing to do with the ballet girls. I wanted to play Handball and Four Square (yup, it was a game before it was an app), and girls with buns didn’t do that sort of thing.
Fast forward to my college years, I decided ballet was amazing and I wore a bun for class, but not in the lindy world. Fast forward a few more years… I remember seeing Frida wear her hair in a bun and that changed things for me. Yes, even I could spruce up my everyday pony tail and turn it into a bun! Hahha, so simple. Currently my hair is about bra length and layered, which makes keeping the ends in a little tough to do, but I can still make it happen.
