La Vie Louboutin, What Wonder Woman Will Wear, Riccardo’s (Almost) Refusal, And More…

-------

Christian Louboutin (left) gets the full-on profile treatment in The New Yorker this week, when Lauren Collins—who has also profiled Donatella Versace—sets out to explain the shoemaker’s mythic allure. The Louboutin secret, according to the man himself? “Le petit quelque chose qui fout tout par terre,” he says, quoting a French saying—that is, the little thing that, ahem, fucks everything up. [New Yorker]

Wonder Woman is coming back—again—and she’s got a whole new look. Specifically, as a preview of her new TV-show costume suggests, one that includes latex pants. [EW]

Riccardo Tisci may be on point of accepting the Christian Dior job, but he revealed recently that he almost turned down the Givenchy one he currently holds—until his mother told him she’d have to move into a retirement home to save money. He accepted the offer and the rest is history. In other words: good one, maman. [Vogue U.K.]

And there’s life after Barneys for legendary retailer Judy Collinson: She’s just been appointed executive director of women’s apparel at Anthropologie. [WWD]
