Barbie Wears Shoes With the "Red Bottoms"


Famous shoe designer Christian Louboutin has teamed up with Mattel and created a new Barbie collection.  The collection will consist of three Barbie dolls that will be packaged in Louboutin shoe boxes.  Each doll will come with four different Barbie sized Louboutin shoes.  The three dolls will be released separately.  A jewel-thief themed Barbie will be released in December, a safari-themed Barbie in February, and a Cannes Festival Barbie in December.  Each doll will retail for $150.  You can purchase them at BarbieCollector.com  and Net-a-porter.com

In addition, the designer himself will make appearances with Barbie in a photo diary titled "My Year in Paris with Christian Louboutin".


The photo diary will be released in December.  It comes with the Jewel Thief themed Barbie and retails for $40.  Here are some images from the diary.  See if you can spot Mr Louboutin in each of the images:
