PARIS — A French court delivered a blow to shoe designer Christian Louboutin’s red-sole trademark last week after it ruled in favor of the local subsidiary of clothing chain Zara over the right to sell red-soled shoes.
The Cour de Cassation, the final court of appeal, upheld a June 2011 decision by a court of appeal in favor of Zara, owned by Spanish manufacturing giant Inditex, and sentenced Louboutin to pay Zara 2,500 euros, or $3,600 at current exchange, as compensation.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
