What happens when Christian Louboutin teams up with the biggest movie release of the year?

The hype around Star Wars: The Last Jedi is real; episode VIII of the now 40 year-old film series airs in Aus this coming Friday (December 15), and the excitement has officially extended onto the fashion world. Christian Louboutin has untied with Disney to produce four lust-worthy shoes inspired by the leading female characters in Star Wars: The Last Jedi; Rey (Daisy Ridley), Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo (Laura Dern), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and Rose Tico (Kelly MarieTran). The Parisian designer has previously collaborated with Disney in creating a Cinderella slipper, and a Malificent shoe.

The Rey shoe incorporates a brown leather ankle strap inspired by the characters costume. The inclusion of translucent PVC reflects her Jedi powers and the blue strass heel evokes the colour of her lightsabre (as revealed in the final trailer).

The Rose Tico is inspired by the utilitarian uniform of the character. The shoe depicts a technical, engineering-driven individual. A strong heel surrounds an inner stiletto, representing Tico's safeguarding and resilient spirit.

Captain Phasma was inspired by the armour that the character is so often seen wearing. Louboutin used silver specchio leather yokes to mirror Captain Phasma's strict and authoritative character.

The Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo are an extension of the character's costume, inspired directly by her draped burgundy cape and sense of empowerment.

The styles have each been signed by the designer, as well as the actresses they portray, and will be auctioned on charitybuzz.com/StarWars from December 7 - December 20, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Starlight Children's Foundation on behalf of Star Wars: Force for Change.
