Christian Louboutin's "muse and goddaughter," Barbie, just went up for sale on Net-a-Porter. Louboutin's Cat Burglar Barbie comes with four pair of shoes. Unfortunately, she's wearing a pair with thick ankle straps, so we can't check out the new, trimmer ankles on Louboutin's dolls. But this doll also comes with a copy of My Year in Paris with Christian Louboutin, the mini album of Barbie and Christian Louboutin photoshopped into strange scenes in Paris, which we adore.
Louboutin's Cat Burglar Barbie costs $150 and is a limited edition, so grab her if you want her, because you won't just be fighting fashion people for her, you'll also be fighting doll people, and some of those doll people are totally crazy.
