Christian Louboutin founded his company on footwear, but over the past few years, the red-soled shoe master has begun spreading his talents to other sectors of the fashion industry. Louboutin has found his footing when it comes to handbags, and every season, his designs are more covetable than the last.
Christian Louboutin’s first foray into beauty was nail polish, which made total sense–his famous shoes adorn and accent a woman’s feet, just as nail color so often does. Louboutin’s next beauty venture, lipstick, also makes a certain amount of sense–his signature color is a vibrant red, after all, and no place in beauty is the color more beloved than on the lips.
If you’re like me and tend to carry the entire inventory of your local CVS in your handbag, then you understand the dilemmas and struggles of buying a mini, micro or any other small-sized bag.

Christian Louboutin‘s nail polish line was a hit as soon as it landed in stores, and now the brand is venturing outside of its standard colors and finishes for a few limited edition polishes. The Christian Louboutin Scarabee Collection consists of two duochrome and one multichrome polish, all in special packaging with gold tops.
Nostalgia was certainly brewing when Christian Louboutin created this Pre-Fall 2015 collection. In the collection, you can see influences from grunge, 80s techno and the 60s bohemia.
The footwear this season will be full of details that give hint to specific time periods.
Lupita Nyong’o is a red carpet natural. She’s graceful and elegant while still managing to be a fashion daredevil.

Saint Laurent’s Sac de Jour has quietly-yet-deliberately infiltrated the hearts and minds of celebrities over the past year. It’s not that the bag itself is remarkable; it’s really not, which may be part of the appeal.
