Christian Louboutin is designing four new tableaux for Parisian cabaret Crazy Horse’s nightly Désirs show. The designer has collaborated with the night spot in the past, creating shoes for their dancers. The tableaux will be on display from March 5 to May 31, though I’m sure the majority of Crazy Horse’s patrons will be too distracted by the multiple pairs of bare breasts to notice. (WWD)


• Editor-cum-Moda Operandi artistic director Taylor Tomasi Hill is celebrating the release of her seven piece capsule collaboration with Asian luxury department store Lane Crawford. The collection is a reflection of the street style darling’s dynamic personal style, with sharply tailored pieces softened by feminine detailing like lace and floral glitter (!) patterns.  The collection is available right now on the Lane Crawford website, with a relatively reasonable price range from $250 to $510.

Rihanna squats down and channels her inner dirty hipster for the cover of her newest single “Talk that Talk.” To retain her precious modesty, her clevage is partially obscured by the track title emblazoned across the shot. Tasteful. (Hello Beautiful)
• For the girl who wants to “feel like a princess every day,” in some cheaply, possibly sweatshop-made shoes, Kim Kardashian has selected designed a quilted pump called “The Duchess” for her membership-based shoe site, Shoedazzle in honor of Kate Middleton‘s 30th birthday. (Fashionista)
