Yesterday, designer shoe brand Christian Louboutin announced the release of their nude ballet slipper range, in seven different shades.

After years of retailers equating the words "nude" and "flesh" with the idea of Caucasian skin, brands are finally coming to the realisation that skin tones are not a one-tone-fits-all deal.

Here are 6 other companies that have adjusted the idea of what "nude" means.

1. Nippies Skin


2. Nubian Skin



3. Nude Barre Hoisery



4. TruColor Bandages


5. Lakeshore Learning


6. Crayola


Let's all celebrate diversity this Friday afternoon with this underrated (?) Jennifer Lopez song that no one remembers.
