- The Modern-Day Glass Slipper: Louboutin Style -
Unveiled yesterday (July 4th) in Paris, in honor of Walt Disney’s release of The Diamond Edition of “Cinderella” on blu-ray this fall, Cinderella’s glass slipper - a vision from famed shoe designer Christian Louboutin. The white lace and Swarovski Crystal whimsical pair was showcased alongside stills and sketches from the original making of “Cinderella” the animated film.
WWD quotes Louboutin as saying of the creation, “Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace, and fairy tale love, but also shoes. Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale.”

If you’re lucky, you can play a modern-day Cinderella with your own limited-edition pair of the Louboutins. But, expect the Louboutin limited edition price along with it :)
