Finally a magician Christian Louboutin has created 'glass slippers' for Cinderella! Maestro presented his creation at the Palais Brongniart in Paris, during Couture Fashion Week. But it's not really made of glass. The pair of magic shoes has an illusion of transparency owing to white lace, Swarovski crystals, and butterflies on the toes. Five-inch heel perfectely fits modern princesses.
“Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairy-tale love, but also shoes,” Louboutin said. “Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale.”
I've heard there is also a short Disney clip about the making of the shoe. When I find it, I'll post it here. For the moment, here is a trailer to a new Cinderella Blu-ray release.
Do I want to get these slippers? Sure! But I think It's impossible to get them. These limited -edition shoes won't be produced for mass sale, 20 pairs will be given away worldwide this fall. And Christian will anoint one lucky U.S. fan as his Cinderella and gift her with a free 'glass slippers' pair.
Now Cinderella also have famous red soles!
