GLAMOROUS ACCESSORIES: Louboutin Goes Classical

The famous Christian Louboutin brand has joined up with photographer Peter Lippman to recreate and re-interpret famous classical paintings to show the Louboutin famous shoe brand. I think this is an ingenius concept, and the details that have gone into these are absolutely beautiful.  The addition of the shoes in each picture are done very naturally (although the fifth one down incorporates a Hermes bag rather than the shoe), and really fits in with the iconic image and the women of each painting. Previous campaigns such as a shoot done in 2009 which Lippman worked on with Louboutin on can been seen here.

You can see the comparisons of the original paintings and the Louboutin versions here, as well as further details about the creators of the concept.
Anyone else a fan of this campaign?

    I like the third one best, "Whistler's Mother". Some of the interpretations are better than others, but I thought that one was the best. The shoes are very her...
