The connoisseur of the red-soled shoe has teamed up with the iconic doll in one of the most fashion-fun collaborations of all time
She's had many a makeover throughout her long, illustrious life, but now Barbie is about to step it up a notch in the fashion stakes, thanks to a collaboration with Christian Louboutin.
And the limited-edition doll sees Barbie as you've never seen her before...
The formerly blonde bimbo has been transformed into a fierce fashionista, complete with glossy auburn locks. Dressed in a skin-tight leather-look catsuit, the French designer has remodelled his Mattel muse as a bad girl Cat Burglar.
