“Nude” is often a misnomer in the realms of fashion and beauty. If you’ve ever struggled to find nude bras or a nude lipstick, you’ve quickly discovered that these are made for exactly one shade of light-to-medium-beige person, often with vaguely orange undertones.
Christian Louboutin previously added heels in various shades to its nudes collection and is now following up with a point-toe ballerina flat available in seven nude shades, from their palest (Nude #1), to their deepest (Nude #7). They announced the new line with beautiful, ballet-inspired campaign:

The shoes are currently available for pre-order and will set you back a cool $595. Hopefully, the company’s move will inspire other, sliiiightly less expensive retailers to offer a range of nude shoes as well.
What do you think of the collection? Also, do you have $595 we can borrow? Let us know in the comments.
