Christian Louboutin campaign proves that shoes ARE a work of art

Besides the typical uniform look book for the coming season, Christian Louboutin has once again pushed the boundaries of advertising though the use of clever product placement.  With the help of Peter Lippmann (who was the creator behind the summer 2009 look book), the campaign sees the models dressed up as protagonists from iconic paintings by artists like De La Tour and Nattier, with one little details that differentiates it from the original: a little red-soled treasure.  I have always said that fashion, and shoes in particular, is just another form of art so it's nice to see that there are visionaries out there who share my view!
