Swizz Beatz & Christian Louboutin Team Up For Cabaret Show Feu
Christian Louboutin has enlisted the musical efforts of his pal Swizz Beatz for Feu, a new cabaret show at the famed Crazy Horse venue in Paris.
Feu (meaning “fire” in French) opens today and features four conceptual themes including “hip hop” and “master paintings.” Louboutin was involved in various aspects of the show, from the choreography to the set design.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, of course Louboutin’s shoe creations are the review’s highlight:
For the erotically charged tableau titled “Spoutnik,” two scantily clad Space Age dancers gyrate on a rotating table wearing silver half-shoes composed of just a heel connected by two fine straps around the ankle and foot.
Things get pretty surreal in “Legmania,” where a forest of black-stockinged legs performs a number in shoes with giant spiked heels that curve to be parallel with the soles.
And at one point during the show, a pair of gold shoes sashays across the stage and kicks an imaginary match to light up the name “Feu,” which appears in flames on the curtain.
Swizz Beatz provides the original music to the show in addition to producer David Lynch.
