Christian Louboutin Suing YSL For Red Soles
Christian Louboutin takes his infamous red soles very seriously! He takes it so seriously that if anyone tries to steal the idea he will sue. And that’s exactly what he’s doing to Yves Saint Laurent.

Mr. Louboutin has filed a $1 million lawsuit against YSL for trademark infringement. What happened to imitation is the highest form of flattery? Guess it doesn’t apply when money is involved.

"Mr. Louboutin is the first designer to develop the idea of having red soles on women's shoes," the lawsuit said, Reuters reports.

"The defendants' use of red footwear outsoles that are virtually identical to the plaintiffs' Red Sole Mark is likely to cause and is causing confusion, mistake and deception among the relevant purchasing public."

Have I been living under a rock because I did not know that YSL made shoes with red soles! What kind of fashionista am I supposed to be?
