Christian Louboutin is taking Barbie on a fashion filled journey to his favorite places and private homes. Barbie has entered into a multifaceted business deal with Christian Louboutin. The deal includes
- Louboutin made a hot pink Barbie shoe for women
- Louboutin will customize a Barbie doll and accessories collection
- Louboutin helped Mattel create a 12 month “diary filled with photos of Louboutin and Barbie as they explore Louboutin’s favorite things”
- Louboutin will be Barbie’s “godfather” for a year
Loubotin customized Barbie by reshaping her figure and making her ankles and feet smaller.
The three dolls, packaged in Louboutin shoe boxes, each come with four pairs of Barbie-size Louboutin heels. In December, Mattel will unveil Louboutin’s jewel thief-themed Barbie; in February, it will add a safari-themed Barbie, and for May, Louboutin designed a Barbie that goes to the Cannes Film Festival. The jewel thief Barbie is wearing a black catsuit with hood, headband and Christina Louboutin gold sandals. The doll comes with four pairs of Barbie shoes by Christian Louboutin, each with the signature red sole, mini shoe boxes and clothes bags.
Only the first doll (the jewel thief Barbie) in the series comes with the Barbie by Christian Louboutin calendar/diary and certificate of authenticity. The diary is also sold separately for $40, is titled “My Year in Paris With Christian Louboutin.” Launching in December, it features photos of the doll shopping with Louboutin in his boutique, on a journey down the Nile, performing at the Moulin Rouge and in a cafe with a male doll that is decidedly not Ken. Only 2,400 Barbie by Christian Louboutin will be available and will be sold at $150.00 through the Barbie Collector. The are 7,700 products worldwide. Barbie Collector will also offer the Christian Louboutin Barbie shoe collection (12 pairs) for $40.
It’s been a long time since I have posted on the blog. I have been very busy with events, family, working on new projects and preparing for the upcoming year. During my time away from the blog, I have been writing about different topics/ideas. Over the next few weeks I will post all of the things that I have been writing about and gathering information on.

On Saturday, September 26, 2009 Essence Atkins of Half & Half married Jamie Mendez in Pasadena, California at the beautiful Ambassador Mansion & Gardens. Essence met Jamie through Match.com on valentine’s day last year. The bride wore a Stephen Yearnick Dress for the ceremony and an Angela Rivera (Jamie’s cousin) dress for the reception. Essence walked down the aisle by herself and the couple opted not to have a bridal party.
The menu was prepared by G. Garvin, which included Puerto Rican and traditional soul food such as macaroni & cheese, roasted pork, peach cobbler, plaintains, red velvet cupcakes, and arroz con dulce.
The guests received match books and travel size candles. The single guests were given a six month membership to Match.com.
