Famous shoe designer Christian Louboutin, and Disney unveiled a new pair of Cinderella slippers during Haute Couture week in Paris! Disney asked Louboutin to create a sparkly pair of shoes in honor of Disney's global release of the classic masterpiece "Cinderella" Diamond Edition on Blu-ray this Fall. The shoes are on display at an exhibition in the London Design Museum.
Cinderella’s legendary slippers have been reimagined with the mastery of one of this generation’s most renowned designers. Lightness, beauty and transparency are the words Louboutin used to describe the special pair of shoes; they are a dream materialized. The designer’s magic touch brings this iconic shoe to life, and gives it a modern twist. Delicate lace adorned with crystals gives these slippers an enchanting look. Two pretty sparkling butterflies rest on the shoes, one landing on the vamp while the other sits closely behind atop of the crystal covered heel, gently brushing the ankle. Louboutin’s signature red soles add the final dash of excitement as Cinderella’s slippers come alive.
“Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale,” explained the designer. As part of the celebration, a few lucky modern day Cinderella’s will have a chance to be a part of the magic and win one of the twenty original slippers created for this collaboration. Wouldn't you ladies love to have these sparkly shoes for your wedding? How fancy!
“The slipper is the magic wand of transformation
which conjures confidence, beauty and love.” – Christian Louboutin
