Christian Louboutin On Ice: Starring Johnny Weir
Jan 26, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
In his most cutting shoe yet, Christian Louboutin's next red soles will come with blades attached. He is creating custom skates for Olympic and National Champion figure skater (but way more impressively Skating With The Stars judge) Johnny Weir. Though no details have been officially released on the design, we can surmise it will be roaring with wild fur and/or diamond/crystal encrusted, and lord knows what else the legendary Louboutin will do to them. AKA they will be the most ferociously fabulous skates to ever hit the ice.
In other Fashion-Johnny Weir related news, he will be the featured "centerpiece" in Elise Øverland's show at NY Fashion Week. He's also teaming up with furrier Adrienne Landau to mastermind a fur coat, the likes of which we've probably never seen. Johnny's unabashed passion for fur makes perfect sense. He lives on the ice. And he was probably Russian in a past life. "I love things that come from dead things," said he on an episode of his Sundance reality show Be Good Johnny Weir. But please no PETA hating for Johnny. Just love.
