Versace Victimizes Louboutin
When President Andrew Jackson learned of the Supreme Court's decision recognizing Native American sovereignty in Wooster v. Georgia, he allegedly retorted, "John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it!"
It seems that Donatella Versace has taken roughly the same attitude toward Christian Louboutin's recent registration of his signature red soles as a U.S. trademark. Counterfeit Chic has confirmed that the red-soled shoes appearing (on Gisele, no less) in the current Versace ad campaign are not in fact Louboutins.
Presumably M. Louboutin has already taken appropriate legal action -- and the disapprobation of the fashion blogosphere will do the rest. But perhaps he should throw a few Medusa heads into his next collection for good measure?
