Swizz Beatz in Christian Louboutin "Intern" crested velvet loafers - Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 40 Years event

swizz beatz attended the audemars piguet "royal oak 40 years - from avant garde to icon" event in new york city on wednesday. the record producer arrived in a fitted black suit with silk/satin lapels, accessorised with tom ford glasses, a royal oak timepiece and finished off with a pair of red velvet "intern" loafers from christian louboutin spring summer 2012.

if i may nitpick: i love the upper half. really loving the buttoned up shirt, the smart jacket, his glasses and that ooooh so covet-able timepiece. but i find his trousers too tight around the hips (gosh where should i look), and he broke my number one rule of black shoes with black trousers only. the "intern" flats also come in black, i think that would suit the look better. the spiked toe cap would have provided the nice contrast anyway. or just imagine how amazing he will look if the suit is in dark blue paired with the red loafers.

what do you think?

honestly, i love the "intern" velvet flats, but wished it was velvet throughout with the crest (ie, no black spiked toecap). are you feeling the shoes?

  1. Maybe he should have put a cummerband. Not feeling the high waisted look on his profile.

    Totally not feeling the shoes. I hope Louboutin doesn't end up becoming the Miucca Prada of shoes.

  3. In my opinion the Louboutin craze - when it comes to men's shoes - is largely undeserved. These for instance just do not have a nice shape. Slippers can be classy, from the Tom Ford ones to the classic English brands, but look at the picture on the right, the shoe on the right (left foot): there is no harmony to the shape whatsoever. Yet he can make nice shaped shoes, remember the gold spikes for Marlon Gobel?

  4. Love these shoes...they're the Harvanana though! The Intern flat is the women's version :-)

  5. Miucca Prada can 'approve' any design (good or crappy), and the fashion victims/ media will lap it up to no end. Thats the power of Prada.

    I have nothing againts Louboutin but his work has become really questionable to me. I don't see any strong vision anymore...just a mish mash of stuff which borders on theatrical.
