The Art Of Beautiful Accessories

Exquisitely handmade, unbelievably gorgeous heels are themselves works of art. However, Christian Louboutin has taken this concept to the next level. A selection of heels and accessories  from Christian Louboutin’s Autumn / Winter 2011 collection, have been transported into some of the world’s most iconic paintings.

Collaborating with photographer Peter Lipmann, well known portraits have been given a Louboutin makeover. A leopard-print shoulder bag has appeared under the arm of Jean-Marc Nattier’s ‘Marquise de Pompadour(pictured below left); while Francisco de Zurbaran’s ‘Santa Dorotea’ holds her fruit platter with a carefully balanced ‘8 Mignon’ strappy sandal (pictured above left).

And that second dress has just been revealed…

Designed by Karl Lagerfeld, Allen’s second Wedding gown (pictured below right), was uploaded to the Chanel website. The photo shows Allen during the fitting as well as Lagerfeld’s original design sketch.

The Chanel gown featured voluminous bell sleeves and an empire-line cut in sheer white chiffon, staying true to Allen’s love of vintage fashion…
