Style on Trial: Christian Louboutin’s Carnival d’Orsay Peep-Toe Pumps

Christian-louboutin-carniva

As regular readers will know, Chrstian Louboutin is a little bit like a God to us, but these shoes… well, they kinda look like they're wearing a wig, no? An afro wig. Is anyone else seeing that, or is it just us?

Here's the back view:

We're also wondering what these would actually look like on. We're guessing "huge" might be a word you'd apply to them. We're also thinking that all of that petal-shaped fabric around the heel would move in the breeze as you walked, and make you feel like you were about to take flight.

 And yet, they're extravagant and dramatic, and we generally like those things in shoes, so we're going to turn this decision over to you, dear readers. Tell us, what do you think of Christian Louboutin's Carnival d'orsay peep-toe pumps? Fashion Crime or Damn Fine?

    Well…I don’t really like them, but I don’t like very girly frou frou things. I believe i’m in the minority there. They’re nice enough though. I just sorta shrug my shoulders.

    I have actually bought a pair of shoes very similar to these (of course without the wig). Anyway, I like them 🙂

    I kinda agree with the comment below, as crazy as it sounds, I love these shoes. Although the poff is strange, it seems and a touch of elegance to what would have been an otherwise boring black shoe. It get my approval.

    I too would want to see them actually on, but I find them to be rather fab!

    I like them, not love them. But I think they would definitely make a statement, especially in a photoshoot.

    I confess I absolutely love them… the first time I saw them, I even made a little noise that isn’t supposed to be heard in public. Sorry…
