The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Border Patrol Busts Counterfeit Louboutin Shipment, Condé Nast Debuts New Fashion Video Game, and Naomi Campbell’s The Face Starts Filming Next Month

• US Border Patrol intercepted and seized 20,457 pairs of fake Christian Louboutins at the Los Angeles/ Long Beach seaport. The shoes had a retail value of $3/pair, but would have been worth about $18million were they sold here in the States. Border Patrol will likely burn the offending stilettos, to the great dismay of noted knockoff shoe connoisseuse, Rasheeda from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. Guess she’ll just have to wait for the Loubi sample sale like the rest of us! (ABC News)

• Condé Nast debuted an interactive fashion game for the iPad and iPhone called Fashion Hazard. The game gives a high fashion Temple Run sort of vibe. The player is tasked with sending their model avatar safely down the runway, collecting coins (bling), and avoiding obstacles like fallen models and a snake just asking to be made into a purse. The game is targeted at women, though there is a male avatar plenty of fashionistos will be happy to send down the virtual catwalk. Get it for 99 cents at the Mac App Store. (Fashionista)
