After mesmerising us with his new jewel-like lipsticks (more on those here), Christian Louboutin is back on our radar – our iPhone radar that is – as he announces a fun new app...

The red sole maestro has debuted 'Louboutinize', a photo filter application, which allows users to turn their worlds red, or add a smattering of crystals, or indeed some rather quirky legs.

Launching today on the App Store, the new app lets users upload or take photos and then turn everything red, add Dita Von Teese's legs, a footballer, or five other 'fantasy' limbs. The luxury shoe purveyor also incorporates his covetable nail lacquers into the app, allowing users to see the world through their faceted crystal bottles.

Photos are transformed at the touch of a lightning-bolt button, a "bzzz" sound effect lets the user know that their picture is being 'Louboutinized' and they are then free to share it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Louboutin will compile and share the most creative snaps taken with 'Louboutinize' weekly. New filters will also debut every month, and a men's version is in the works and slated for September release.
