One of the things we love most about the holiday season is all the sparkle and magic and glitz and glamour, and no one does glamour like luxury label Christian Louboutin. After launching a nail polish line with bottles retailing for $50, Christian Louboutin has just released a limited edition holiday polish with a price tag of $675! The special holiday nail polish, called Starlight, is the same signature red Rouge Louboutin shade that you can buy for $50, but this one is housed in a bottle that's been embellished with over a thousand, hand-applied, two-tone Strass crystals. And if that's not glamorous enough, the bedazzled bottle has been placed inside a black lacquer box that's decorated with leather and crystal flowers--the same leather and crystal flowers that are featured on the Louboutin Pensamoi heel. With all that fabulousness, perhaps $675 is a steal. What do you think?
Seems like MAC Cosmetics has a new collaboration with a designer or celebrity every other week, doesn't it. But don't get us wrong, we're totally not complaining, especially since the most recent announcement is that French fashion house Giambattista Valli is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a collection of lipsticks for the beauty brand. "I’m very well known for dresses, no? And I thought it was very nice, the idea of dressing your lips," says the designer. Nice idea indeed! And the colors are beyond fabulous--there's a pale pink that nails the '60s mod trend and a deep plum that begs to be worn for a night out. "I made these for a woman with personality, a woman who lives her life and isn’t afraid to wear color and isn’t afraid to kiss," says Valli. We can't wait to get our hands on these beauties, out in Summer 2015.
Well the answer to our headline is, no, Karl Lagerfeld is not a baker.. but he sure does know how to design an amazing cake. The Chanel lipstick cake pictured was designed by The Kaiser himself for a restaurant in Tokyo called Beige. It features a caramel and dark chocolate rendering of the iconic Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipstick and comes in a box with a sketch done by the designer. Sadly, we won't be able to taste it--only 100 are being made and we just can't find the time for a trip to Japan any time soon.
