Since it’s almost Christmas, you know what that means – a new version of the Barbie doll is hitting stores for parents to fight over. But this time, they may be fighting for it for themselves and not their daughters (or sons as the case may be). That’s because shoe designer of the moment (or many moments as his shoes remain in demand after numerous seasons) Christian Louboutin is styling three Louboutin Barbie dolls, who will come with mini Louboutin boxes and doll shoes. And of course, since Barbie always comes with controversy, the red-soled shoe designer is said to be re-shaping her feet because apparently, according to a Louboutin spokesperson, the designer believes Barbie has ‘cankles’. Who knew? Anyway, if you want these haute couture shoe/skinny ankled dolls, they launch in December 2009. The first in the series is the ‘Cat-burglar’ Barbie by Christian Louboutin, dressed in a sleek hooded black cat-suit. Becuase all haute couture shoe/skinny ankled dolls are thieves. Didn’t you know?
