Somehow this got lost to us amongst the shuffle and kerfuffle of the holiday season, but Net-a-Porter opened up its storybook of Grimm’s Fashion Fairytales to tell the story of Christian Louboutin, in celebration of the master cobbler’s 20th anniversary. Making animated guest appearances in this tongue-in-cheek account of Louboutin’s rise to prominence are Helmut LangGrace Jones, Yves Saint Laurent and his muse Loulou de la FalaisePrincess Caroline of Monaco and socialite Hélène de Mortemart as the requisite fairy godmother. Snuggle up under the covers, kids, it’s sartorial storytime!

Story by Lester Brathwaite

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester at
