Sole man: Christian Louboutin poses with Crazy Horse performers.
The shoe designer has teamed up with the Crazy Horse in Paris—incidentally, where Von Teese had a long-running show—to create four new tableaux for a show called Feu (“fire” in French), which opens on Sunday, March 4.
Louboutin’s role as “Guest Creator” is inclusive; he worked with dancer and choreographer Patricia Folly on the performance, David Lynch and Swizz Beatz on the music, video designer Gilles Papain, and artist Youssef Nabil, who created the show’s dreamy poster.
"I am interested in all things that celebrate and enhance the female form,” Louboutin said in a statement. “Because of what I do, for these numbers I have focused on the lower half of the body, rather than the top. The language of legs can express any and every feeling, and without giving too much away, the body becomes the Flame."
