Today I would like to share you a short movie about Christian Louboutin, let me tell you more information about this short movie.
Christian Louboutin will be filming the sixth installment . Le Carrosse Noir short movies during Cannes next week—a surreal update on The Magical Mystery Tour , but in high heels. Four of the movies can be seen now at Christian Louboutin’s website, with the fifth going live next week. And, ironically enough, it was Cannes that provided the inspiration for the series in the first place.
A few years ago, Louboutin was having lunch in a South of France resort with the wife of an actor in town for the film festival. She was to attend a screening that very night and was in need of shoes. One would expect that to be easily solved by Monsieur Louboutin, but no local store carried his designs, and he doesn’t travel with his collection in case of random emergencies. Louboutin’s dining companion then announced she would simply hire a helicopter to pick up a pair in St.Tropez. “I thought, well, there should be an easier way to get them,” he says. So Louboutin envisioned an ice cream truck in front of the Hotel du Cap, “not selling ice cream, but shoes.”
And since that idea was so cinematic, Louboutin decided to film it. The series features three young women—Caroline Cottier as Jessyca, Marie-Astrid Jamois as Claudine. known as “Loubi’s Angels” —dressed in Louboutins and in costumes by Roland Mouret and Martin Grant. The narrative focuses on their journey in Le Carrosse Noir en route to Cannes for a special performance, and the crazy characters and situations they encounter along the way. “They have this mission no one knows about,” says Louboutin. Loubi’s Angels are serious enough to be actually performing live in Cannes for three nights during the film festival. These shows will take place in a space by the sea near Palm Beach Casino—and, harking back to the film series’ original inspiration, attendees will be able to order shoes to be couriered from Paris. There are notable cameos throughout the films , but don’t expect to see too much of Louboutin. “I am not an actor,” he says. “I feel much too shy about that!” Instead he’s enlisted good friend Konstantin Kakanias, as well as his godson Guillaume Rumiel, to assume the role of master of ceremonies. However, Louboutin will be taking the show on the road to Monaco, Marbella, Deauville—and then possibly, to a city stateside soon. Let us wait for more movies of Christian Louboutin.
