Yesterday, the fashion world of Toronto was a flutter with a media press conference for the opening of the Design Exchange‘s exhibit, “Christian Louboutin,” a retrospective on the 21-year career of the famed shoe designer, and the red sole master himself was there! And, yes, there was a fabulous after-party. With all the commotion in the city, we expected our Twitter feed to be filled with fascinating insider pics and comments about rubbing elbows with one of the most famous men in the entire fashion world, yet we were mostly bored. “At @DesignExchange for #Louboutin exhibit and opening party” was the best you could come up with? Dudes, people would kill for this kind of access! Why not describe your run-in with Louboutin at the sink in the men’s bathroom, or make fun of all the people who bought new shoes just for the party?! That said, a few of you totally impressed us, and we’re going to explain why. Here are the best tweets from the Christian Louboutin opening at the Design Exchange in Toronto…
Shinan Govani: @shinangovani
The tweet: Mad after-shindig at Soho last eve for Christian Louboutin. Talked Bollywood – one of his big obsessions, inspirations – with the shoe lord.
Why we love this tweet: Sure, it’s a bit braggy-braggy, but that’s what Twitter is for! If you’ve got 140 characters or less to use, bragging comes first in the hierachy of things to write about. Did you get a Twitter account to wax philosophic or show off? Everyone knows blogs are for thoughts and Twitter is for self-love.
Andrea Bolley: @andreabolley
The tweet: #louboutin after party #sohohouse toronto Mr.Louboutin came up and danced with me He not only makes shoes he dances in them really well !
Why we love this tweet: If you’ve ever met Andrea, you know that she’s the best dancer in the entire city of Toronto. This lady’s got moves only Studio 54 has seen before! The idea of her dancing with Christian Louboutin makes our hearts sing.
The tweet: Ooooohhhh f*ck yessss. Shoe orgasm happening now. #dxcl @designexchange http://instagram.com/p/azL7FNhkXu/
Why we love this tweet: If you’ve got nothing to say, swearing is always the best.
Christopher Turner: @Turnstylin
The tweet: At the @DesignExchange for the @LouboutinWorld press conference. Mr Louboutin is putting the final touches on the exhibit before speaking!
Why we love this tweet: At its best, Twitter is a tool for people to use their access to tell the people who aren’t there what’s going on. This works in instances like earthquakes in Japan and whatnot, but it also comes in handy at exclusive fashion events.
Gail McInnes: @gailmcinnes
The tweet: Red sole spotting at @DesignExchange for @Louboutinworld with @kellyclaman
Why we love this tweet: Why we love this tweet: Who doesn’t love a girl who makes a fun game out of her night? Bless your adventurous soul, sweet child. Bless!
