Macaroons with a Red Sole

Ever since I saw the scene of Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette in the fabulous film directed by Sophia Coppola, I have always dreamt of being surrounded by frothy delicate French pastries and rows and rows of satin sparkly shoes.

My latest find, may just be the closest thing to it!

Parisian Pastry masters Laduree have collaborated on a project that brings two feminine lusts to one point. They have asked Christian Louboutin to design a set of gift boxes for their shops. As seen above they have the frailty and prettiness of his shoes.

I particularly adore the one that looks as though it has it front torn open, because I know from personal experience that when I receive a box of macaroons or a box of Louboutins, I rip it right open!
