Christian Louboutin Plays With Patterns in Diamond-Burst Suit & Two-Toned Loafers on ‘Shoe Oscars’ Red Carpet at FN Achievement Awards 2022

Christian Louboutin brought sharp style to the 2022 Footwear News Achievement Awards, where he was honored with this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

The iconic shoe designer arrived with dates Sabrina and Idris Elba in a sharp suit. His ensemble featured sharp trousers with a double-breasted blazer, each in a pine green hue. Giving the set a graphic burst of prints was a green and brown diamond-shaped pattern, covering both pieces to create a monochrome statement. A white collared shirt and pink silky tie finished his attire, as well as a Y2K-worthy denim baseball cap covered with an embroidered red flowers — likely referencing the red hues of his namesake brand’s soles.

When it came to shoes, Louboutin wore a set of leather penny loafers. His ensemble featured round-toed uppers in paneled hues of white and dark brown, creating a two-toned statement that sharply finished his outfit. The style also complemented his ensemble’s brown tones, truly creating a head-to-toe moment.
