I have long been fascinated by designer Christian Louboutin's red soled shoes that all the celebs wear including Oprah, even if the red soles don't match the color of the outfit they are wearing. http://www.christianlouboutin.com/#/intro
There is that little flicker of red like a Venus Flytrap plant when these ladies who lunch walk or cross their legs. It says "Look at me. I can afford these! Sizzle. What bad economy?". What a marketing genius this Christian must be. I wonder how he came up with the idea to convince the chic to wear red soles with everything? And pay around $500-ish to wear the exact same red soles as all your friends. A secret sorority. The Red Soles Club?
Seriously, I am just jealous. I want a pair badly.
I was thinking about these shoes last night drawing this dress and decided if I couldn't afford them, I could draw them. Ah the power of the mighty charcoal and red watercolor wash.
I took my inspiration from a pic of a celebrity. Can you tell who it is? Hint, she wears these shoes ALL the time as a fashion icon and is thinner than a pin with bolted on additions. I added a few pounds to her frame and some movement as she is a little stiff and wax like in real life.
Even my husband said I got good movement in the drawing. And he knows nothing about art.
