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

    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 Louboutin.com and one size 38 left in black at Net-a-Porter.com).

    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?
