Christian Louboutin’s iconic red-soled heels have become a global phenomenon, transcending the realm of mere footwear and beloved among fashion aficionados worldwide. Plus, they are a staple of many women’s shoe closets as they can elevate a business lunch or provide modesty and timeless elegance to an evening occasion. Rodriguez is no doubt a huge fan of the brand. In fact, she wore shimmery silver Louboutins to the Oscars Vanity Fair After Party in March 2024. She also shone in sparkly, pointed-toe Louboutins at the Variety’ 2023 Power of Women event in April 2023. She joins the ranks of other elite celebrities such as Blankpink’s Rosé who stepped out in blush patent Christian Louboutin pumps on May 2, 2024 at Tiffany Titan by Pharrell Williams Launch Event.

About the brand

In the world of fashion, few names command as much reverence and desire as Christian Louboutin. Born in Paris in 1963, Louboutin’s journey to iconicity began with a stroke of accidental brilliance. As the tale goes, he witnessed his assistant painting her nails a bold red and he was instantly inspired. Now, the fiery red on his high heel transcends mere footwear and has become a signature feature of an iconic brand.
