Who Wore it Better? Kim Kardashian vs. Monica Brown vs. Nene Leakes in Christian Louboutin Isolde 160mm Platform Shoes
By Claire

Christian Louboutin’s 20th Anniversary capsule collection has been super hot amongst the glitteratti, who have snapped up the designer’s most adventurous and pricey designs with fervor.
Kim Kardashian was the latest to wear one of the collection’s most popular styles, the $3,995 Isolde 160mm Platform Shoes, to Generosity Water’s 4th Annual Night Of Generosity. The haute heels have also been spied on Nene Leakes and Monica Brown.

Kim definitely went the understated route, pairing the 6.5 inch heels with a demure creamy white dress. Monica opted for casual in a Chloé colorblock top and blue leather pants, while Nene went for va va va voom in a lipstick red Herve Leger cocktail.
Despite the stiletto’s exorbitant price, the collector’s item is largely sold out in most stores (though there is one size 40 left at Christian and one size 38 left in black at

Though Kim Kardashian usually knocks it out the park, her look falls flat for me, and Monica’s ensemble seems way too busy. Nene might just have the win here.
What do you think?

*Update: Victoria Beckham and Janet Jackson were among the very first to wear the original version of the shoe back in 2008:

MMMkay, now who really wore it better?

  1. I the shoes better on NeNe.

  2. Larissa says:

    Nene the best

  3. Ashley says:

    NeNe Leakes wore them best hands down!!!

  4. Ay says:

    NeNe by a landslide. Monica looks a hot mess, her pants are too baggy in the ankle area, and Kim ain’t foolin no one trying to look like an innocent church girl #cutitout

  5. Siyam says:

    I hate to say it but NeNe wins this one for me

  6. Kia says:

    Monica can’t dress and it’s so sad because she always has good pieces but cannot put them together! I hope she doesn’t have a stylist that can’t style.

  7. Dani says:

    Kim… they look clunky on Monica. I like Nene’s outfit but… not enough to say she killed this. I think Kim worked it best, the shoes are loud/over the top & I feel that she paired it nicely w/ the demure dress. I just wish it was a liiiiiil shorter, she has great legs.

  8. nyc chick says:

    Nene… never thought I’d say it…

  9. nyc chick says:

    Nene…never thought Id say it!

  10. AB says:

    Whew! Monica is doing too much! Nene looks best.

  11. A.Renee says:

    NeNe looks great, her attitude doesn’t match her style. She seems like she’s getting better though. Monica and her new found fame, you can tell she cant really dress because most of her outfits look a mess. Expensive taste with no style…smh

  12. Rebecca says:

    Nene looks hawt! … Surprisingly kim didnt cut it for me this time lol

  13. ChooseyLover says:

    NeNe, Kim then Mo…..

  14. Ayana says:

    NeNe, Monica looks like she’s pregnant and and Kim K I don’t know what look she’s going for. Nene #slayed

  15. Tessa B says:

    def Nene…Monica looks ok but the pants do nothing to really for the shoes…you can’t even see the straps that wrap around the anke…and KIM K looks a mess in that “Women Wear White on First Sunday” at church

  16. Nola Darling says:

    I hate nene. But that bitch is werking.

  17. LC says:

    Those shoes are hideous. *Kanye shrug*

  18. binks says:

    Nene by miles! Though in general I hate these shoes but Nene made them work because Monica miss the mark and Kim’s style of dress doesn’t go with the style of the shoes

  19. aries says:

    where is Janet Jackson? she wore these shoes 2 years ago and look better than all of the above, including Kim K.

  20. Nana says:

    But really… $4,000 for shoes??? Really? Is that not insane?

  21. yes says:

    OK Monica seals the deal in these but VICTORIA BECKHAM wore them best.

  22. AmazinRee says:

    Monica can do no wrong in my eyes.

  25. Yakini says:

    NeNe hands down!!!

  26. V says:

    Nene looks fab. I love her.

  27. Alex says:

    Kim K alll day. I love Monica but Im not feelin the bagginess of the pants and NeNe’s is okay but over the top shoes are best accented with a simple outfit!

  28. Courtney says:


  29. i think nene wore it better…really highlights the red herve leger dress

  30. bella says:

    Ms. Nene Leakes.

  31. Melissa says:

    Horrible shoes

  32. Lafemmeafrique says:

    Speaking of which…can we see more of Victorian Beckham on your blog?! She is FIERCE!

  33. Quaysha says:

    I think they all wore it wrong , especially Monica . I love those shoes, definitely a pair of shoes you need in your closet. I personally would wear the shoes with leather black pants, & a nice blazer , probably black . & just accessorize my outfit w| some banging jewerly & a hand bag/ clutch . Kim outfit is way too simple for those shoes & Nene outfit is OK but it’s not WOW .

  34. KIM says:

    Monica wore them well, well they all looks nice but am I the only one that is tired of seeing these bandage style dress worn by Nene.

  35. BlkRose says:

    I hate those shoes with a passion. I was offered to wear them a few times and I flat out refused. There is just wayyyyyyyyyyy to much going on and the spikes get on my damn nerves. It really looks like something Tina Turner wore in that Mel Gibson movie when she played a warrior queen and sang about the thunder dorm. No thanks!

  36. BlkRose says:

    I have never liked those shoes.

  37. Now that I know the price I understand why NeNe has been photographed wearing them to at least 4-5 events recently.

  38. ucaleley says:

    Nene, gorgeous

  39. Marthe says:

    Kim almost looks conservative.

  40. MEME says:

    Nene worked it the best. Monica’s pants cut off the beautiful shoe, and Kim’s church lady dress does not go with those spectacular heels.

  41. FashionOne says:

    Nene for the win!

  42. Thunder! says:

    lmao @ blkrose

  43. Carol says:

    Kim !!!

  44. Reecie says:

    hate to say it, but Nene. and I usually love Monica’s looks. they look best with a dress like Nene’s IMO.

  45. Bronze says:

    Poor Monica.

  46. Anonymous says:

    Nene is workin them shoes

  47. Kim looks best. The girly suit balances the edginess of the shoe. The shoes look clunky on Monica and NeNe’s look is predictable.

  48. krystel says:


  49. Anonymous says:

    Nene hands down, the dress Kim has on just dose nothing for the shoe, and Monica looks a hot mess…

  50. Sandra says:

    I cannot believe that I am saying it also. Nene for the win. When it comes to the shoes, ugly!!! I refuse to jump on that Louboutin bandwagon. Sometimes, I wonder if these designers secretly don’t have women. It seems like the higher the better and the skinnier the heel the better. Eventually they (foot problems)catch up to you ladies.
