When I initially found out that Marchesa had asked Christian Louboutin to design shoes for his couture collection a while ago, I was already excited to see some Louboutin for Marchesa collections hit the runways. Sure enough, I am nothing less than impressed. The cutout booties with their pin-thin heel are strikingly beautiful. A work of art.

The Marchesa gowns are absolutely breathtaking, from the collection's floor-length dresses to the bejeweled shoulders. The Louboutin for Marchesa collaboration heightens couture to a whole new level.
