Grazia Daily could totally moonlight as a detective. After all, we reckon we’ve rumbled the mystery of the Paris Hilton jewel thief… it was Christian Louboutin and his accomplice Barbie!
As part of the celebrations honouring Barbie’s 50th birthday (we want the number of her facialist please…) Mr Louboutin has revealed his take on the Barbie As Muse project, in which fashion designers, including Givenchy and DVF, will interpret Barbie in their own way. Following his hot pink footwear creations with signature red soles for the Barbie Runway Show at NFW, the designer and iconic doll have been enjoying a series of dates together, all documented in a new photography style-calendar, A Year In
