With the London Summer Games finally here, we’re hosting a gold medal ceremony to honor some of our favorite designers from around the world. France brought us the stylish names of Christian Dior, Coco Chanel and Louis Vuitton who will always hold a place in the fashion games hall of fame, but what other french designers deserve a shiny metal this year?
Gold: Christian Louboutin
He’s been creating shoes long before the Loubi glass slipper and his inspiration came from a sole desire to create a shoe that would empower women (Thanks Loubi!). His pumps always rock a red bottom to reflect red carpet-worthy style, a place where iconic women constantly define their personal styles. Everyone from Madonna to the Kardashians and Carrie Bradshaw have become part of Louboutin’s world which continues to show us that a classic pump with a smidge of sex appeal can change the way you see your own world. Now, if only Christian Louboutin would create a line of footwear for the budget-conscious girl. We’ll keep dreaming!
Silver: Hubert de Givenchy
The moral of their story? Don’t try to mold yourself into what the world expects to see. Instead, flaunt your figure no matter what shape or size you are and show the world that being yourself is sexy all on its own.
Bronze: Paul and Joe
The brand also has a beauty line and creates classic accessories that further define their classic style. We can’t wait to see how this label continues to evolve!
