Designer Louboutin wins court ban on anti-Islam ad
BRUSSELS (AFP) - Luxury shoe designer Christian Louboutin has won his battle to stop an anti-Islam advertising campaign in Belgium that features a pair of his iconic stiletto heels, an Antwerp trade court ruled.
The poster by far-right Flemish group "Women against Islamisation" shows the bare legs of an ex-Miss Belgium wearing the signature red-soled Louboutins as she lifts up a black dress.
Words etched along the naked leg mark potential skirt lengths - ranging from "Sharia compatible" at the ankle to "stoning" high up a thigh.
The legs belong to Anke Van dermeersch, now a senator with the anti-immigrant right-wing Vlaams Belang (Flemish Interest) party.
