Louboutin Designed for Star Wars

Christian Louboutin, who previously collaborated successfully with Walt Disney Studios to celebrate the release of the "Cinderella" and "Maleficent" films, announced that he is working with the studio again on the highly anticipated new film of the "Star Wars" saga, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi".

Christian Louboutin said of the collaboration: "I never expected Disney to invite me in relation to Star Wars and I was very surprised. But I like surprises, and I'm intrigued by this invitation. At first glance, Star Wars and my universes seemed distant, but when I saw pictures of the red planet Crait, I immediately understood the connection and why they were thinking of me. All of a sudden, I had strong ideas and visions."

The film's Los Angeles premiere inspired styles from Christian Louboutin's collection, as well as the series' archives, for the 15cm heeled Ballerina Ultima shoe, which pushed the boundaries with its design. To complement this special shoe, Christian Louboutin designed four more special shoes that reflect the spirit of the film's protagonists Rey (Daisy Ridley), Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo (Laura Dern), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran).

- Designed forRey (Daisy Ridley), the shoe consists of a transparent top that reflects Jedi abilities and the Power it carries, with wristbands inspired by the strips that surround the character's body in the film. The style is complemented by a blue strassque heel that evokes the color of Rey's lightsaber.

-Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo's (Laura Dern) shoes are inspired by her draped burgundy cape as a natural extension of her costume and her strong and distant character.

-Captain Phasma's (Gwendoline Christie) shoes evoke the curves of her armor, represented by shiny silver leather, while reflecting her tough and authoritarian character.

-Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran) represents a technical and engineering-influenced personality with sandals designed by Christian Louboutin. Featuring a stiletto, the thick heel reflects a shell that retains its resilient spirit.

Each style is complemented by a special gem inspired by TIE warships.

Commemorative shoes signed by the designer and the actor who plays each character are being auctioned at charitybuzz.com/StarWars from December 7th to 20th. A portion of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Starlight Children's Foundation on behalf of Star Wars: Force for Change.
