Here’s professional Rich Kid Dorothy Wang, attending Nicky Hilton’s book launch party for 365 Style at Kyle Richardson’s Beverly Hills boutique. She’s wearing the now-discontinued Christian Louboutin Lady Daf Leopard Pumps (the bloom is off the rose for extreme-platform stilettos, I’m afraid) and carrying a black Hermès Ghillies Kelly Bag. There are precious few pairs of Lady Dafs left online, but you can (somewhat miraculously) still find them in black suede for $1,075 at Barneys.
If you wanted to stock up on Lady Dafs for the inevitable platform pump renaissance, I wouldn’t think you were insane at all. The Lady Dafs are one of Louboutin’s more outrageous styles, and they were ridiculously popular at the height of the platform pump craze. Now they seem quite dramatic in comparison to the demure single-soled Louboutins that are hot this season. When will platforms be back, you ask? I’d guesstimate Fall 2017. Spring 2018 at the very latest.
