Christian Louboutin has the beauty world in his sights. Not content with a retrospective at London’s Design Museum and a new collaboration with Disney to re-imagine Cinderella's slippers, the French shoe designer is now planning a beauty line.

Louboutin has teamed up with New York-based brand Batallure Beauty – the creative minds behind Material Girl by Madonna and the Justin Bieber fragrance - to form Christian Louboutin Beauté, with a line of luxury cosmetics due to launch late next year.

"Twenty years ago I started what I thought would be a small adventure, which ended up becoming a company," said Louboutin. "The beauty adventure is a natural extension for someone like me, who likes to empower women. To be a part of creating beauty seems like the right next step."

While final products are a long way off, we imagine a glossy red lipstick to be a key Christian Louboutin Beauté look with Dita Von Teese perhaps as the brand's spokesmodel? Watch this space.
