The oddest thing about this video of Christian Louboutin on a trapeze: His strenuous teetering feels like sympathy labor pains. Christian can't know the demands of walking all day in his gorgeous 4 inch pumps, so he elevates himself in a different, equally unnatural way. It's also fun that he doesn't realize the irony in a new shoe collection inspired by trapeze artists: The parallels between a performer staying afloat without slipping and a woman staying strong while balanced, sort of, on two thin rods are just too strong. But Christian's such a cutie, so we can't fault Style.com for adoring him. As for the new shoe collection, they're certainly gorgeous, but if you're a girl who walks everywhere, you might find it easier to swing on a trapeze than to swing these heels for Fall... Especially since they retail for almost $1000.
