Look out, all you red sole lovers: you're about to get an extra dose of Louboutin in your life.
Christian Louboutin is launching a beauty line called Christian Louboutin Beauté, Women's Wear Daily reports. The shoe designer is partnering with Batallure Beauty LLC to enter the luxury beauty market, bringing his patented sexiness to the makeup counter.
According to WWD, Christian Louboutin Beauté will include "multiple, unspecified classifications," meaning anything from lipstick and eyeshadow to nail polish. No matter what the product, we're guessing Louboutin's signature red, the defining hue of his brand, will pop up throughout the collection.
As for the feel of the new collection, expect sexy and strong, just like the stilettos. “Beauty products also have to do with empowering women,” Louboutin told WWD, as he strives for his footwear to do.
It's just one more venture for the busy designer, who is seemingly everywhere lately: at London's Design Museum, where an entire exhibit devoted to his designs is currently on display; at Paris' Crazy Horse cabaret, where he created special sets and shoes for the latest burlesque show; and even in the magical world of Disney, for whom Louboutin will be creating a "glass slipper" in honor of the rerelease of "Cinderella" on DVD this fall.
But despite his jam-packed schedule, beauty would seem to be the next step. Wildly popular designers such as Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs, whose names carry strong customer appeal, have both ventured into the beauty sector in the past year.
We're guessing beauty products emblazoned with the Christian Louboutin name will sell like gangbusters. What girl wouldn't want a bit of Louboutin red for her lips?
