Christian Louboutin Sues Yves Saint Laurent Over Red Soles

We have a clash of two shoe titans ladies and gentlemen!
Christian Louboutin recently filed suit against Yves Saint Laurent over their use of red soled heels.

Apparently YSL has lacquered a few of their Spring 2011 designs with ‘red bottoms,’ a look that is universally known as Louboutin’s signature.

According to Reuters the lawsuit states, “Mr. Louboutin is the first designer to develop the idea of having red soles on women’s shoes.” Louboutin is seeking $1 million in damages.
