high fashion meets high art in christian louboutin’s fall 2011 look book

i’m loving (and geeking out over) christian louboutin’s fall 2011 lookbook!!  this lookbook, which is photographed by peter lippman, is inspired by classic portraiture style and features recreations of iconic paintings.

art history is one of the few classes i got an a+ in college so i’m pretty stoked.
