Kate shoe of the moment: the ‘sex’ Louboutins

Kate Upton and Katy Perry in "sex" Louboutins

In the past week, both Katy Perry and Kate Upton have rocked these new Christian Louboutin pumps, which have the word ‘sex’ written across the toe in Swarovski crystals. You know, because they’re subtle.

Perry wore the nude heels, which reportedly retail for $1300, to the Echo Music Awards in Berlin last week–perhaps a message to new beau Baptiste Giabiconi? Meanwhile, Upton wore them to the 2012 Jeffrey Fashion Cares event at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York on Monday night.

No, my question here isn’t who wore them best. My question is–do you think these shoes are cute or totally tacky? I gotta admit that I’m in the latter camp. Then again, nude-colored heels in general weird me out.

    Ha! As an object of culture, I expect to see these shoes in the Museum of Sex on 5th Avenue at any moment. Personally, I think it’s all in how you wear them (or anything for that matter). Daring people can pull off daring clothes. (Besides, I like “nude” pumps.)
