Talk about a modern day glass slipper!
None other than famed designer Christian Louboutin has teamed up with The Walt Disney Studios to create a "Cinderella" slipper. Aren't they gorgeous!?????
"The inspiration behind the shoe of Cinderella, is coming from Cinderella herself," says Louboutin. "If you're designing shoes, definitely, Cinderella is one of the biggest icons, if you think about it. You have few people who are so linked to shoes."
So true, and Cinderella is one very, very special gal to have her own pair of custom designed Louboutins! Only 20 pairs of the priceless shoes were created.
Mr. Louboutin collaborated with the studio on these special slippers in honor of Disney's release of the "Cinderella" Diamond Edition on Blu-ray this fall. The shoes were unveiled at the Palais Brogniart in Paris during Haute Couture week.
The delicate and feminine peep-toe heels are made of transparent mesh and the lace is the color of Cinderella's skin. There are two beautiful butterflies on each of the crystal embellished shoes and the entire heel is covered in crystals as well.
"And of course, Cinderella has the red sole," Louboutin says smiling.
A fashion fairy tale with the perfect "happily ever after" ending, if I do say so myself.
