Barbie Loves Her Louboutins!
It looks like Barbie‘s wardrobe just got an upgrade! Every girl has most likely had a Barbie or two at some point in their lives – I had about 300. I was pretty much obsessed as a child and as a result of my love affair past with the iconic Barbie, I was absolutely flabbergasted when I came across her latest selection of accessories on the FAO Schwarz website.
Brace yourselves people because Barbie now has the option to wear accessories by the one and only Christian Louboutin! Say what?
Apparently, children know designer names now and want to drape their dolls in designer duds. The iconic New York City toy store FAO Schwarz offers an array of Christian Louboutin shoes… for Barbie. These collections range in price from $74.99 to $149.99 and come with some pretty fierce accessories.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the designers shoes, they ain’t cheap! His kicks will cost you a pretty penny – with basic styles starting at around $595. In fact, some of the pricier shoe styles can carry a price tag of $2,000 and up. Hollywood’s in-crowd has managed to help put these shoes on the map over the last several years – from [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jennifer Lopez[/lastfm] to [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Beyonce[/lastfm] it seems like everyone is a fan!
It only makes sense that America’s beloved and iconic Barbie would want to get her plastic hands on a pair or twelve! But the question that has been plaguing me is – do kids even know what Loub’s are?
FAO has the sets titled as collector editions but at the end of the day… it is a toy store. Regardless, it looks like Barbie is movin’ on up!
