Louboutin’s Cinderella Slippers
The glass slippers designed by Christian Louboutin in honor of Disney’s Cinderella Diamond Edition were unveiled in Paris July 4, with the limited edition red-soled heels adorned in lace, sparkling butterflies and Swarovski crystals.
It was announced back in April that the French footwear guru would be designing a pair of shoes inspired by Disney’s Cinderella to mark the animated picture’s rerelease on Blu-ray and DVD this fall.
“I have been so lucky to have crossed paths with Cinderella, an icon who is so emblematic to the shoe world as well as the dream world,” said the designer.
This isn’t the first time the Brothers Grimm fairytale shoe has provides a source of inspiration — Maison Martin Margiela created its own interpretation of the iconic glass slippers a few years back for a limited edition range.
Meanwhile, this November prestigious London department store Harrods will unveil its Christmas windows showcasing couture incarnations of classic Disney Princess dresses by top designers including Valentino, Elie Saab, Versace and Oscar de la Renta.
“The enchanting stories of our Disney Princesses are timeless and continue to inspire girls and women across generations,” said Anna Hill, Chief Marketing Officer of The Walt Disney Company UK & Ireland.
