As the selfie becomes further and further detached from reality, we’re going to see more stuff like this:
Do you ever feel like you need a little more designer shoe action in your life? If the answer is yes then Christian Louboutin’s new app could be for you.
Louboutinize is a free photo editing app that lets users add a dash of luxury to their pictures via three different filters. “Rouge” will wash images in a layer of deep red, the label’s signature sole hue, while “Crystallize” allows users to see their images as though through a diamond, inspired by the label’s nail lacquer bottle design. Finally, “Legs” gives snappers the chance to upload a fun pair of legs to their pictures, choosing between a can-can girl, a football player and three other limb options.
I wonder if “fun pair of legs” is ultimately as unfun as “fun size candy bars.”
A more serious app might be able to apply that deep red layer just to the pertinent part of your shoes, crystallize your accessories, and give you legs like [insert appropriate name here], but something like that would cost some serious money, whereas this one is being given away for free.
Addendum: Those initial “fun” legs apparently include the stems of Dita Von Teese. Suddenly this looks, um, more serious.
