These Louboutin unicorn boots have us totally mesmerised

So pretty

So pretty

Needed more proof that the fashion world is obsessed with sequins, you know in case you weren’t convinced by the pink H&M dress and the Saint Lauren disco boots?

Behold, the Christian Louboutin ‘unicorn skin’ (yes, it’s a thing) boots that have the whole of Instagram mesmerised.

For AW17, the designer has gifted the world with these heels that at first glance appear silver, but stroke them and they turn into a dazzling rainbow.

You really need to see it to totally understand the genius of it all, so see below for the video.

Celebrity stylist Samantha McMillen gave us a sneak peek of the boots on her Instagram, captioning them: ‘I'm calling this "Unicorn skin." Fancy new sequined boots @louboutinworld of course. #unicornskin #ChristianLouboutin #fw17 #sequinedboots.’

Who wouldn’t want glittering boots that you can basically customise to suit your mood? So we got the low down for you.

The boots are called Moulamax, and will retail for £695. They’re part of the AW collection called Rocket Man, inspired by the 70s, and will launch in the UK mid-June to July, so you’ll have to be a little patient.

We bet they’re totally worth the wait though.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
