The fashion house of Christian Louboutin have commissioned photographer Peter Lippmann for a series of seven portraits, each re-staging centuries-old famous paintings with six kinds of shoes and one funky handbag. Ooh, Marquise d’Antin, that’s some stylish anachronism you’re wearing! Some of these play off easy recognized art history hallmarks. One Jean Baptiste-Camille Corot’s Portrait of a Girl (1857-58) made headlines for being stolen in a sloppy NYC heist. All are kitsch done right. Previously, the photographer had created lush and painterly tableaux for Louboutin. See his newest work in our gallery.
