For the shoe designer Christian Louboutin, the cinema of India has always been a magical, otherworldly, Technicolor fantasy. He heads to the Marrakesh film festival to meet his favorite stars of the screen.
In the photographs inspired by Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh paintings, shoes and handbags nestle amid lavish arrangements of bluebells, peonies, and dahlias. There’s more to discover in every inch of the detailed photographs, from the third So Kate pump hidden within a lush bouquet in one image to the Sweety Charity bag presented alongside freshly picked cherries and nectarines in another.
It’s work that happens behind the scenes, as they say, and that suits me just fine because in general I am a shy person. But sometimes I have these extroverted outbursts. Being in the presence of Amitabh Bachchan, the godfather of Bollywood, and one of the most stylish men on earth, was not going to help me remain at ease — I am such a big fan of his.
Though his shoes are often worn by women who want to be noticed, particularly celebrities including singers Beyonce, Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez, and actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Sarah Jessica Parker, Louboutin says the ideal shoe is one that is able to “appear and disappear.”
My dear friene , how do you feel about Christian Louboutin and Indian cinema ? There is some connection between both of them .
