Christian Louboutin was born in France in 1963. He first started dreaming up fantastical footwear in his early teens. He was expelled from school at age 16 and started working for famed shoe designer Charles Jourdan two years later. In the early 1990s, Louboutin launched his own line of women's shoes. He added his legendary red soles in 1993. In 2003, Louboutin expanded into women's handbags. He then started up his men's shoes line in 2011.

With Louboutins, eyes are naturally drawn to the red sole and you might not take the time to notice the variety in designs. In my opinion, the Pigalle is the perfect Louboutin pair. With its slender patent silhouette, the iconic Christian Louboutin Pigalle pump is sultry and sophisticated at once. Which style is your favorite?

Perfect Pigalle pumps that I am saving my pennies for.
