If the movie Big scared you when you were young, the Collection portion of Christian Louboutin's new e-commerce site is bound to give you the finest night terrors that money can buy. With a magic wand and glowing green eyes, the man himself stands behind an interactive rotating orbit of sky-high heels and accessories that suggest similar styles and provide item names spelled out in glitter when clicked on. The rest of the site is a trip, too—if you ever wanted to know what it would be like to shop a spring/summer shoe collection in the middle of a forest, your time has come. Just make sure you don't swat the Louboutin-bug flapping its wings in the corner. [Christian Louboutin]
