Real nudes from Christian Louboutin

I always thought it was quite odd to call a pinkish beige colour “nude” when it  is meant to match your skin colour in order to be, erm, nude! Right? And last month, when I visited Christian Louboutin’s boutique in Mount St in London, I noticed I wasn’t alone in thinking that!

The French shoe designer launched last month the collection with classics Pigalle, Fifi, Simple Pump, Flo and Vendome in five shades ranging from pale blush to deep chestnut to better match different skin tones, saying “the shoes are there to give the woman an extra lift, not to take attention away from the legs and what she is wearing”. He explains that “they (shoes) disappear like magic and become a fluid extension of her legs, as in a sketch, elongating the silhouette.”

Not only is Christian Louboutin’s Nudes Collection wheel of legs with sharp stilettos pretty (and actually, quite hypnotising, to be honest), but also shows that nude is what actually matches your skin colour.

And a free iPhone app called Louboutin Shades helps you choose the right nude for your skin tone!

Now, that is what I call nude.

  1. I saw these but I am *not* willing to spend 700 buckaroo’s on them. I’ve always known that pink-beige shoes aren’t nude for me, since I’m brown. I haven’t been able to find the right brown shoe yet though.

      I know what you mean – it is very pricey! I always knew too, I have olive skin and the pinkish beige “nudes” always annoyed me a little bit hahahahaha! Thought it was nice to see it out there, spelled out that nude is not one size fits all shade! 🙂

      Think also is a good guide for people to decide on a nude shoe shade, not necessarily Loubis!

      Good luck in the search of the perfect nude shade and thanks for popping by!
