Cinderella's Louboutin

Christian Louboutin has out done himself this time! He has put his signature red sole on a very famous, fabulous, shoe!

The fabulous designer joined forces with Disney to create a modern version of Cinderella’s glass slipper, which was unveiled in Paris in July. The shoe was designer in honor of the release of Disney’s Cinderella Diamond Edition on Blu-Ray and DVD.

"Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes," the designer said in a statement. "Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale."

The new shoe is not made of glass, but instead Louboutin’s design is made of white lace with sparkling butterflies, and Swarovski crystals throughout. Only 20 pairs of the shoes are being released. 

But Louboutin isn’t the only one that has been hit with fairy dust!  This November Harrods* will unveil its Christmas windows showcasing couture incarnations of classic Disney Princess dresses by some of our favorite designers like Valentino, Versace and Osc 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.
