Thanks to Christian Louboutin, more brides will dare to go nude on their wedding day. OK, not the birthday-suit variety, but rather with a killer pair of nude Louboutin heels. The brand, riding on the success of its first Iconic Nudes Collection from 2013, is expanding from five to seven shades of complexions. While it doesn't necessarily cover every skin tone yet, it's safe to say the luxury shoe company is pioneering what nude really means for women of different colors. Christian's philosophy explains it perfectly: "Nude is not a color, it's a concept."

Along with the expansion of the nude shades, Christian Louboutin is also introducing two new sandal styles that are sure to tickle any bride's fancy. The first, called Christeriva, is "an ankle-wrap stiletto heel derived from a theme close to the brand—ballet," according to their press release. "Complete with a grosgrain double bow affixed atop a peep-toe, Christeriva takes to an ultra-soft nappa leather base in seven shades of nude."

The second style, Cherrysandal, exudes a cool girl vibe with its chunky heel and a translucent PVC band which adds "a surreal element of nakedness to the shoe." Hey, a little bit of sexy appeal on your big day isn't a bad thing, is it? Just take these sexy dresses, for example.

All shades and styles will be available on their Web site and Christian Louboutin boutiques worldwide, with prices ranging from $875 to $895. If you're not feeling nude for your wedding day, might we suggest these sparkly white shoes instead? Whatever you do, make sure to break them in before wearing (and dancing in!) them for hours on end.
