Back in September, Twinkletoes reported on Barbie’s 50th birthday show and bubble gum pink Louboutin shoes designed for the lucky doll. The collaboration is not limited to just the shoes though. WWD reports that Christian Louboutin will serve as Barbie’s godfather for the next few months and that means an entire series of Barbie/Louboutin-centric products, including a diary that showcases Barbie and Louboutin on various adventures around the world:
And dolls that come packaged with their own pairs of Louboutin heels, each in Louboutin branded shoe boxes. For Barbie and Louboutin collectors, the accessories and dolls will be sold exclusively through BarbieCollector.com and Net-a-porter.com starting in December and throughout 2010. The dolls will sell for $150, the diary $40, and a 12 pair Louboutin Barbie shoe collection will go for $40.
Asked about the recent controversy that Louboutin felt Barbie had fat cankles, Louboutin issued a statement to clear the air:
Barbie’s foot has always been shaped less ‘curvy’ than the rest of her perfect body,” he said. “I just added my little science to Barbie and I’ve been proud to serve her. But fat ankles she didn’t have, she just could have had thinner ankles. That’s all.
My God, what a story, he said, reacting to the controversy. I apologize to my goddaughter [Barbie]. There has been a bit of confusion there, but it’s just the proof that Barbie has real serious fans.
