Martha Stewart Paints Her Louboutin Soles Black: “I Don’t Like Them Red”

Oct 17, 2012 @ 11:15 am

Martha Stewart is crafty—we all know this thanks to her billion-dollar empire—and she extends that philosophy to the red soles on the bottoms of her Christian Louboutin heels. “See the soles? I paint them black,” Stewart told of the metallic pumps that accessorized her Ralph Rucci cape and Vince leather trousers at last night’s American Made Awards, which honored small business entrepreneurs. “I don’t like them red, even though they’re his trademark. But he doesn’t mind. He said it’s okay if I do that—I asked him!” We’re happy to hear the French shoemaker gave her exclusive permission, especially since he’s so picky about his trademark-protected red soles. (In fact, Yves Saint Laurent just withdrew its claims against Louboutin over copyrighting the red bottoms.) Perhaps her personal touch is ahead of the curve!

For daytime, the designers showed cropped lace pants paired with coordinating tunics. Sparkle dripped down everything, from gowns, pants, and handbags to the standout Christian Louboutin shoes. See our favorite looks in the gallery!

Christian Louboutin Wins Trademark Lawsuit: Red Sole Triumph!

Sep 6, 2012 @ 12:53 pm

Viva la red! The U.S. Court of Appeals in Manhattan has ruled that Christian Louboutin has exclusive rights to the contrasting red sole the French designer is so famous for, according to the LA Times. The debate came about after Yves Saint Laurent put out a shoe with a red bottom and ruffled Louboutin’s rose-tinged feathers. “We hold that the lacquered red outsole, as applied to a shoe with an ‘upper’ of a different color, has ‘come to identify and distinguish’ the Louboutin brand and is therefore a distinctive symbol that qualifies for trademark protection,” the court said. That means that no one but Louboutin can sell any shoe with a red sole and different-colored upper. What a win!
