Fashion: Christian Louboutin On Female Stereotypes.

Jun 26 2013

The Luxe Chronicles:Shoes

Christian Louboutin made an interesting point regarding cultural stereotypes to WWD recently:

"As a kid, I was always like, 'Why, if a girl is sophisticated, if she cleans her hair, if she wears make-up, is she stupid? Tell me why a woman who likes to put on heels and who cleans her hair is a stupid woman?' And no one was explaining everything. (…) They were like, 'Oh, because [if you focus too much on your appearance] you're a kept woman and you're an image for the man.' I just don't think women are all that stupid." (Source)

I agree wholeheartedly with that sentiment. I would however add the following caveat: I've witnessed too many women wearing the wrong shoe for the wrong occasion or simply the wrong shoe for them. It doesn't matter how beautiful, glamorous or expensive your shoes are. If they don't enable you to stride confidently into a room, then you are missing the point of heels entirely.
