Ahead of its public debut, the Christian Louboutin L’Exhibition[niste] exhibit opened its doors to select celebrity guests at the Palais de la Porte Dorée Museum, for a cocktail party and private dinner. This marks the largest ever exhibit showcasing Louboutin’s work, spanning over a variety of verticals outside of just footwear, and also the first exhibit in his hometown of Paris, France.

The venue—Palais de la Porte Dorée Museum—played a significant role in the world-renowned designer’s career. He first began to visit the space as a young boy, where, early on, he saw a sign noting that visitors were prohibited from wearing high-heeled shoes: a driving force behind his lifelong vocation and the inspiration behind one of his signature styles—the Pigalle pump. The five-month long L’Exhibition[niste] exhibition at the Museum was the result of Louboutin sponsoring a project to enhance the venue, after which he was invited to curate his own immersive showcase.

Guests like Janelle Monae, Dita Von Teese, Karlie Kloss and Diane Von Furstenberg joined Louboutin to preview the exhibition, with a cocktail party featuring a live performance by L’Orchestre Lamoureaux—lead by Chief Nicolas Krauze—and a private dinner, where the Orchestra was joined by Belgian-Egyptian singer Tamino.
