It should surprise exactly no one that Christian Louboutin was well-represented on the 2013 Met Gala red carpet. Even for celebs who punted on the event’s punk theme (and there were a lot of them who didn’t exactly go for the gusto), adding a pair of Louboutin’s many spiked and studded heels or toting one of his various sharp-edged clutches was a quick way to give a nod to the punk exhibit without actually having to take too many risks or commit to a full look, which is the route that both Miranda Kerr and Jessica Alba went with their Christian Louboutin Marquise Spiked Clutches.

Former Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel was recently spotted carrying a Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Shoulder Bag while schlubbing through puddles in NYC. I don’t particularly love Bethenny’s ensemble here, for reasons you can probably guess, but I’ll take a fab, bow-adorned Christian Louboutin bag over a pair of Louboutin’s fab-but-foot-slaying heels any day. You can currently pick up the red and grey colorway of this bag for $1,695 at Net-a-Porter.
Before she was a Dancing With the Stars castmate or a two-time Bravo reality star, Lisa Vanderpump (along with her husband Ken Todd) was simply a humble restauranteur…successful enough to live in a palatial Beverly Hills mansion. Here are Lisa and Ken scouting a location for a new restaurant in West Hollywood. Lisa is carrying a metallic gold Alexander McQueen Whipstitch Tote and wearing the Christian Louboutin Figurina Boots.
Everyone knows that your choice of travel bags is key to the imminent success or failure of your trip. Jessica Alba seems to have chosen well here, topping her hardcase luggage with a Christian Louboutin Farida Snakeskin Shopping Tote. (It’s hard to be incognito at JFK when you’re traveling with something as conspicuous as Christian Louboutin.) If snakeskin isn’t your bag (double entendre), you can buy our favorite version of the Farida – this muted grey and neon pink colorway – at Net-A-Porter for $2,195.
It’s been quite a while since we’ve had an occasion to talk about Christian Louboutin’s handbags. While not nearly as omnipresent as his platform pumps, the bags do have their own unique appeal. (No bright red bottoms though, just bright red lining. Which was definitely an oversight on someone’s part, I think.) Here’s actress Emmy Rossum, star of Showtime’s Shameless and the upcoming flick Beautiful Creatures, shopping in West Hollywood with her burgundy and black Christian Louboutin Farida Tote.
Christian Louboutin has been working hard to bring the awareness of its handbag collections up to par with its world-famous shoes, and the line is well on its way. The brand has transitioned well, bringing Louboutin’s signature irreverence to all of its accessories, and as a result, the brand’s handbag following continues to grow. I love a red-soled shoe, but I’ve been finding myself loving Louboutin’s bags lately as well.
If you know Kylie Minogue, then you know that she takes her accessories, especially her shoes, very seriously. At barely five feet tall, the globally megafamous pop star likes to get an extra lift from high heels, no matter what the occasion. Not only that, but her lifelong penchant for heels has made her shoe choices a bit more adventurous than your average star – she’s not Lady Gaga levels of crazy, but she does like to make a strong shoe statement.
This clutch is just another example of my ever-growing love for all things Louboutin. Christian Louboutin has a knack for taking ordinary accessories and loading them with details and embellishments to make them unlike others on the market. What I personally love about Louboutin is you never know what concoction he will create. His aesthetic is one that never disappoints me – I like things a little bit on the wild side.
This weekend, we were busy ending summer and falling straight for fall. These lovely Louboutin Miss Zora Necklace Boots make for a great companion.
Happy Labor Day, hope your summer was as amazing as ours!

I’ve got a little crush on Emma Roberts. I’ve seen her at quite a few events and she always seems approachable and like an overall nice girl, the kind of girl with whom you’d like to have lunch and go shopping. It doesn’t hurt that she’s Julia Roberts’ niece, but Emma has made quite a name for herself in the hard-to-enter entertainment industry and it seems the fashion industry has taken a liking to her as well, mostly because of her casual day-to-day style and ease of changing to prim and proper for events.
