While Christian Louboutin’s shoes are so gorgeous that they may seem to be one-of-a-kind, these fierce fringed sandals are everywhere these days!
Hollywood’s hottest celebrities have long had a penchant for Christian Louboutin’s signature red soles. In fact, the famed designer even made a pair specifically for Blake Lively, who is inarguably one of his biggest fans. Last night, at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards in Universal City, California, formerly retired actress Amanda Bynes graced the red carpet in a skintight Herve Leger bandage dress — but it was her Louboutin Change of the Guard pumps that had us doing a double-take! This wasn’t the first time we’ve seen the fringed footwear. It turns out the Kardashian sisters as well as LaLa are all proud owners of the electric blue version of this shoe!
Back in February, for husband Carmelo Anthony‘s much anticipated debut as a New York Knick, LaLa stayed stylish on the sidelines, posting a TwitPic of her “game shoe” — the Change of the Guard sandal, which conveniently resembles the Knicks’ team color! Then, on Apr. 7, Kourtney Kardashian wore the same shoes while gallivanting around LA. Just three days later, little sis Khloe paired the pumps with matching jeans while enjoying dinner with hubby Lamar at paparazzi playground Katsuya. If they were a normal family, I’d say that maybe they shared the shoes, but after we got a glimpse into Khloe’s gargantuan closet, chances are they both happen to own the same pair. Ah, the sweet life of a basketball wife!
Depending on the rest of the outfit, these shoes can really be a hit or miss. I love what Kourtney did with them, but I wish Amanda Bynes would have gone a little less bold, especially considering the basic, recognizable (not to mention slightly overused) design of the Leger she wore. Regardless, these are truly an example of Louboutin’s impeccable craftsmanship, and we are always waiting for his next collection!
