Valentino Did The Red Sole Thing WAY Before Louboutin

valentino-made-red-sole-shoes-before-louboutin.jpg

Remember how Christian Louboutin claimed he was the first designer to do colored soles — ever?

That's a crock of red paint according to Valentino's longtime business partner!

Giancarlo Giammetti was more than happy to point out Valentino produced red sole shoes in 1969 and 1983. In other words, way before Louboutin established his business in 1992.

Think Yves Saint Laurent will use this in their ongoing legal battle? Because we do!

Louboutin Tries To Stop Dior From Making Red-Soled Shoes

christian-louboutin-court-order-against-competitors-red-soled-shoes.jpg

And the ridiculousness continues!

Christian Louboutin is seeking a court order to keep competitors from copying his signature colored soles.

The papers were filed on Tuesday after an employee at Christian Dior told a Louboutin private investigator about their plans to release a collection of shoes with red soles.

Wait a minute. He hired a private investigator!? That's a little much, don't cha think?

Since the New York Post published the rumor, a Dior spokesperson has denied the rumor, telling WWD the fashion house "does not manufacture and sell any shoes with a red sole".

See monsieur, no need to lose sleep over it!

YSL To Louboutin: You Weren't The First To Use Red Soles!

yves-saint-laurent-fires-back-at-christian-louboutin-not-the-first-to-use-red-soles.jpg

The claws are out in the battle between Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Louboutin.

As you'll recall, Louboutin filed a lawsuit against YSL last month after he discovered they were making their own shoes with red soles.

The French shoe designer even took it a step further by claiming he was the first ever to do the red sole thing, but now YSL is calling bullshit and they have proof!

In court papers filed in NYC, the fashion house said:

"Red outsoles are a commonly used ornamental design feature in footwear, dating as far back as the red shoes worn by King Louis XIV in the 1600s and the ruby red shoes that carried Dorothy home in The Wizard of Oz."

YSL also called Louboutin's trademark application a big crock of you know what for claiming to have exclusive use of the red sole:

"As an industry leader who has devoted his entire professional life to women's footwear, Mr Louboutin either knew or should have known about some or all of the dozens of footwear models that rendered his sworn statement false."

Ouch.

We can't wait to hear Christian's response.

Blake Lively Reveals The Identity Of Her Stylists

blake-lively-gets-fashion-advice-from-karl-lagerfeld-and-christian-louboutin.jpg

If Blake Lively ends up on any worst dressed lists she only has herself to blame since she doesn't have a stylist.

But who needs one when you have Christian Louboutin and Karl Lagerfeld around?

The self-styling actress admitted Monsieur Louboutin and Unkle Karl helped put her outfit together for this year's Met Gala:

"Christian helped me pick out my shoes…He's a good friend and somebody I trust incredibly. He's the closest thing that I say I have to a stylist. There are few people that I ask - Karl, Christian."

Whether or not she actually listens to their advice is another story.
